Classical Economics: Lost and Found

Vernon Smith will describe the neo-classical belief state of economics, circa 1950; how it influenced early experimental market explorations; changed how we thought about markets; in the end resurrecting the dynamics of classical market price discovery processes, lost in static neo-classical marginal utility theory.
