Excerpt from History of Economics: Or Economics as a Factor in the Making of History

The Greeks had no conception of political economy as a science. They did, however, busy themselves with certain facts and data that constitute the material of this science, namely, with the production and distribu tion of wealth. They raised crops, breeded cattle, ex tracted the precious metals, traded with one another and with foreign nations; but they did all this without hav ing any established formulae or principles, and without any sight of those tendencies that constitute the laws of political economy.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 352 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Excerpt from History of Economics: Or Economics as a Factor in the Making of HistoryHistory is no longer a study of isolated events, but rather of the workings of unseen laws and influences. As the different phenomena of chemistry and physics receive their orderly arrangement and their power to interest only from their association with certain laws, so, in history, the facts that make up the narrative are but the material or medium through which are conveyed the workings of laws both universal and ever constant. The study of history has thus lost much of the dryness, and, perhaps, also some of the disregard in which it used to be held. No longer is it a mere committal to memory of battles and sieges, of alternating wars and treaties, of the rise and succession of dynasties. It is now a scientific research into the influences that bring about all these different results. The action of the motor power of certain laws is now seen in all the pages of history, and every event that takes place can be attributed to the action of some law. The study of history, therefore, has been raised to the dignity of a science, a science that specially interests the mind of the seeker after true wisdom. None other, perhaps, deals so effectively with the mainsprings of human conduct. It reveals the future by means of the-past, and shows to mankind what particular environment it must seek after in order to achieve the greatest happiness of the greatest number.
