The contribution of Paul Samuelson (1915–2009) was essential to these developments and mainly consisted in rewriting many problems of economics as maximization problems, with extensive use of mathematics. From the 1940s onward, Samuelson’s effort to show that apparently diverse subjects have the same underlying structure and can be treated with the same mathematical tools gave unprecedented unity and coherence to the discipline. The optimization model has not been beyond dispute, though: At least since the 1950s, Herbert Simon (1916–2001) and others contended that actual decision makers lack the cognitive capacities to solve maximization problems and rather content themselves with “satisficing” behavior, choosing options that are not optimal but make them happy enough.
