He is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and a Senior Research Fellow at the Property and Environment Research Center (PERC).

Since 2002 he has served as the General Editor of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek, a multi-volume collection of Hayek's writings. A past president of the History of Economics Society, Caldwell has held research fellowships at New York University, Cambridge University, and the London School of Economics, and is a Life Member of Clare Hall, Cambridge. He is President of the Southern Economic Association.

He has written on a wide range of topics in the history of economic thought and economic methodology. He is co-editor of The Journal of Economic Methodology and the author of Reflection Without Rules: Economic Methodology and Contemporary Science Theory, Cambridge University Press, 2001. His Agreement on Demand: Consumer Choice Theory in the 20th Century, edited with Philip Mirowski, was published in 2006 by Duke University Press and The Elgar Companion to Recent Economic Methodology, edited with John B. Davis, will be published in 2011.
Kevin D. Hoover is Professor of Economics and Philosophy at Duke University. Educated at the College of William and Mary, the University of St. Andrews, and Balliol College, Oxford, he has previously held positions at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, University of Oxford (Balliol College, Nuffield College, and Lady Margaret Hall), and the University of California, Davis. He is past president of the History of Economics Society, past chairman of the International Network for Economic Method, past editor of the Journal of Economic Methodology, and current editor of the journal History of Political Economy. He is the author of more than one hundred books and articles in a variety of areas, including the history of economics, macroeconomics and monetary economics, and the methodology and philosophy of economics and econometrics.
Steven G. Medema is Professor of Economics and the Director of the University Honors and Leadership Program at the University of Colorado Denver. His research focuses on the history of twentieth-century economics, and his latest book, The Hesitant Hand: Taming Self-Interest in the History of Economic Ideas (Princeton, 2009), was awarded the 2010 Book Prize by the European Society for the History of Economic Thought. Dr. Medema teaches courses in microeconomics and the history of economic thought and in 2008 was designated a University of Colorado President's Teaching Scholar, the highest teaching honor conferred within the University of Colorado system. Dr. Medema served as Editor of the Journal of the History of Economic Thought from 1999-2008 and is a member of the editorial boards of several history of economics journals. He was elected President of the History of Economics Society for 2009-10.
Roy Weintraub was trained as a mathematician and began his career as a mathematical economist. In the 1980s he reconstructed his research and teaching activities to focus upon the history of the interconnection between mathematics and economics in the twentieth century. That work, in the history of economics, helped shape the understanding of economists and historians: his General Equilibrium Theory (1985), Stabilizing Dynamics (1991), Toward a History of Game Theory (ed.) (1992) and How Economics Became a Mathematical Science (2002) charted the transformation of economics from a historical to a mathematical discipline. In recent years his work has turned more self-consciously historiographic, resulting in edited volumes on The Future of the History of Economics (2002) and Economists Lives: Biography and Autobiography in the History of Economics (2007).
