The History of Economic Thought: A Concise Treatise for Business, Law, and Public Policy, Volume I: From the Ancients Through Keynes


The subject of this book is the history of economic thought, including the less-commonly discussed schools of binary and socio-economics. The intended audience is students, business people, regulators, legislators, and scholars who are relatively unfamiliar with the primary competing economic theories of our day. Readers will benefit by coming away from the book with a better understanding of the context within which economic arguments are made. They will be better able to think critically about the assumptions underlying various economic proposals, and the history behind those assumptions
