How many Hicks do we know? Looking at the signatures of his papers, and hence at his bibliography, one suspects that there have been at least two – J.R. Hicks, from the beginning of his career in the 1930s to the end of the 1960s; and John Hicks, from the 1970s onwards. Was this change of name a whimsical caprice of a successful economist or was it a meditated choice? The authors show that Hicks changed his name because he changed his stance on economic theory.

Abstract

How many Hicks do we know? Looking at the signatures of his papers, and hence at his bibliography, one suspects that there have been at least two – J.R. Hicks, from the beginning of his career in the 1930s to the end of the 1960s; and John Hicks, from the 1970s onwards. Was this change of name a whimsical caprice of a successful economist or was it a meditated choice? The authors show that Hicks changed his name because he changed his stance on economic theory.
