Gunnar Myrdal, considered a leading economist and social scientist of his era, left an impression as a reformer, politician, fighter of inequality and developer of the Swedish welfare state. He was one of the leading theorists of international relations and developmental economics. Myrdal had the faith to pierce the roots of conflicts taking place between the American idealism and its racist relations. This Swede was given due respect in his career as a professor of political and international economy. His work on ‘An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem In Modern Democracy’ in 1944 wholly criticized the separate-but-equal philosophy and thus, ceased racial discriminations in schools. He made a mark with his classic book on sociology, titled as ‘An American Dilemma’. His was a name listed among Nobel Prize winners for economics in 1974, which was shared with Friedrich A. Hayek.
