A former Professor of Economics at Florida State University, E. Ray Canterbery is one of the most respected economist-writers of his generation. In 2003 John Kenneth Galbraith, who knew both Michal Kalecki and John Maynard Keynes, called Canterbery, “the best.” In his literary forays, he has authored the novel, Black Box, Inc. and co-authored F. Scott Fitzgerald: Under the Influence. The latter biography was the springboard for the present Scott: A Novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Canterbery conducted research as a Truman Scholar in 2004, which led to his recent biographical book, Harry S. Truman: The Economics of a Populist President. Canterbery is the author of many other acclaimed books and articles, including the forthcoming Inequality and Global Supra-Surplus Capitalism, a sequel of John Kenneth Galbraith’s The Affluent Society, and The Rise and Decline of Global Austerity. Before these came The GlobalGreat Recession, the tour de force Wall Street Capitalism, a light-heartedbiography of Alan Greenspan: The Oracle Behind the Curtain,the classic The Making of Economics, and the best-selling A Brief History of Economics. Some of these books are now available in several languages.
Canterbery served as President of the Eastern Economics Association in 1986–87 and of the International Trade and Finance Association in 1997–98. In January 1996, Prentice-Hall, Inc. selected him for one of their 100 Hall of Fame Economist Baseball Cards for “significant contributions to the economics discipline,” including “developing one of the first complete mathematical theories of foreign exchange.”
The international Biography Centre in Cambridge, England includes Canterbery among 500 persons worldwide in its Living Legends (2002), among 2000 scholars worldwide in its Outstanding Scholars in the 21st Century, among One Thousand Great Intellectuals (2003), among 2000 Outstanding People (2003) worldwide, and among 1000 Great Americans (2003). The American Biographical Institute includes Canterbery in its Great Minds of the 21st Century (2002) and American Biography (2003). He is also listed in selected issues of Marquis Who’s Who in the World and Who’s Who in America, as well other biographical sources.
