W. M. Gorman, C. Blackorby, and A. F. Shorrocks

Abstract

W. M. (Terence) Gorman has been a major figure in the development of economics during the past 40 years. His publications on separability, aggregation, duality, and the modelling of consumer demand are recognized as fundamental contributions to economic theory. Many of his unpublished papers have achieved similar status as privately circulated classics.

Keywords: aggregation, budgeting, capital aggregates, consumer demand, consumer theory, labour aggregates, macroeconomics, microeconomics, producer theory, representative agents, separability
