Summary
    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.

    Fred E. Foldvary teaches economics at Santa Clara University, California. His books include Soul of Liberty, Beyond Neoclassical Economics, Public Goods and Private Communities, Dictionary of Free-Market Economics, The Half-Life of Policy Rationales, and The Depression of 2008. He writes a weekly column for The Progress Report and The Free Liberal, and is an associate editor of Econ Journal Watch and a member of the editorial board of the American Journal of Economics and Sociology. Foldvary's main areas of research include public economics, social ethics, real estate economics, and private communities.
