Now reissued to coincide with the publication of Professor Little's new volume, Ethics, Economics, and Politics.

`Review from previous edition A most useful piece of work, displaying both depth of philosophical insight and virtuosity in technical economics'
`Little has done an important service in clearing away much of the metaphysical rubble which has cluttered up this field of economic theory . . . with an elegance and precision of language which makes the tidying-up process almost at aesthetic pleasure on its own account.'
`270 pages of highly concentrated and subtle thinking'
`This book establishes [Little] as a thinker of the first flight and a fine economic theorist''
