Thesis (M.A.)—University of Nebraska—Lincoln, 1952. Department of Economics.
This thesis is partly an investigation into welfare economics, but mostly it is a presentation of Tugwell’s economic views.An attempt is made to trace the development of the welfare concept in economic thought and to make some contrast between the term welfare as used in economics and the term human welfare as associated with human betterment.Tugwell’s views are presented as characterizing the latter approach.A number of widely scattered sources are used in addition to articles and books by Tugwell.This was found necessary to gain perspective and to aid in interpretation.
