The Science of Economics

By Fred Foldvary

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-940-0, 150 pages


The Science of Economics is a complete and thorough presentation of the principles of economics. Integrating various schools of thought (classical, neoclassical, Austrian, Georgist), this full-spectrum treatise on economics delivers a comprehensive yet concise education in economics. Readers will learn how to analyze issues and formulate remedies for our social problems. The Science of Economics delivers a depth, breadth, and fervor for social progress that is rarely found in other economics books.

The Science of Economics covers a multitude of topics in economics, including:

  • The foundational premises of economics.
  • The ethical basis of a market economy.
  • The significance of the three factors (land, labor, and capital goods).
  • The time origin of interest.
