"John R. Hicks is one of the most important and influential economists of the 20th century, the trail of the eternally eclectic John Hicks is found all over economic theory… The quintessential 'economist's economist,' Hicks cannot be said to have founded a 'school… If any, his school was 'economics… Hicks' scholarly output is a perfect demonstration of how economics should be done: without partisanship for pet theories, without ideological quibbling, his own strictest critic, learning from all and everywhere, constantly searching for new ideas and staying glued to none… No economist, before or since Hicks, has achieved such 'Olympian' scholarship" (Fonseca).
