David Saul Landes (usually cited as David S. Landes; born 1924) is a professor emeritus of economics at Harvard University and retired professor of history at Harvard University. He is the author of "Bankers and Pashas", Revolution in Time, The Unbound Prometheus, The Wealth and Poverty of Nations, and Dynasties. Such works have received both praise for detailed retelling of economic history, as well as scorn on charges of Eurocentrism, a charge he openly embraces, arguing that an explanation for an economic miracle that happened originally only in Europe must of necessity be a eurocentric analysis.
