No Thanks, Alessandro. I'm Full.

Alessandro Roncaglia has written a book, Piero Sraffa, for Palgrave's "Great Thinkers in Economics" series. (This is the same series containing Paul Davidson's John Maynard Keynes, available in hardcover and paperback.) I have always enjoyed Roncaglia's take on Sraffa, but I think I'll pass for now. I've seen quite a bit of what he has had to write in the past.

  • Alessandro Roncaglia (1978) Sraffa and the Theory of Prices, John Wiley & Sons.
  • Alessandro Roncaglia (1979) "The Sraffian Contribution", in A Guide to Post-Keynesian Economics (edited by Alfred S. Eichner), M. E. Sharpe
  • Alessandro Roncaglia (2000) Piero Sraffa: His Life, Thought and Cultural Heritage, Routledge
  • Alessandro Roncaglia (2001) "Production of Commodities by Means of Commodities Between Criticism and Reconstruction: The Given Quantities Assumption", in Piero Sraffa's Political Economy: A Centenary Estimate (edited by Terenzio Cozzi and Roberto Marchionatti), Routledge
  • Alessandro Roncaglia (2005) The Wealth of Ideas: A History of Economic Thought Cambridge University Press
