道格拉斯·诺斯简介

 

道格拉斯•诺斯,1920年生于美国马萨诸萨州,1942、1952年先后获加利福尼亚大学学士学位和哲学博士学位。曾任《经济史杂志》副主编、美国经济史学协会会长、国民经济研究局董事会董事、东方经济协会会长、西方经济协会会长等职务。历任华盛顿大学经济学教授、剑侨大学庇特美国机构教授、圣路易大学鲁斯法律与自由教授及经济与历史教授,现任华盛顿大学经济系卢斯讲座教授。

    诺斯是新经济史的先驱者、开拓者和抗议者,他开创性地运用新古典经济学和经济计量学来研究经济史问题。他对经济学的贡献主要包括三个方面:用制度经济学的方法来解释历史上的经济增长;重新论证了包括产权制度在内的制度的作用;将新古典经济学中所没有涉及的内容——制度,作为内生变量运用到经济研究中去,特别是将产权制度、意识形态、国家、伦理道德等作为经济演进和经济发展的变量,极大的发展了制度变迁理论。

    鉴于他建立了包括产权理论、国家理论和意识形态理论在内的“制度变迁理论”,1993年获得诺贝尔经济学奖。
