Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is the first economics text to emphasize a central truth about economics: that the fundamental concept of economic thought is economic value. By placing value first and grasping its objective nature, Professor Buechner cuts through the convolutions of modern economics, and provides a solid grounding for issues such as exchange, price, supply, and demand. Students and professionals now have a starting point for economic thinking that is far superior to the 'scarcity' or 'distribution' models in most texts today. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Every price is set by someone; this is where economics begins. Building on that fundamental idea and on Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, Objective Economics transforms economics. The thesis of this book is that Ayn Rand’s concept of “objective” is the indispensible base of valid economic thought. Consistently applying this idea across the board, the author reaches a general theory of price for the first time in the history of economic thought. This theory of price then provides a valid base for explaining how a free economy functions. Based on facts everyone knows, presented without graphs or higher mathematics, Objective Economics makes accessible to the intelligent layman a clear understanding of how the economy works. For everyone who found college economics impenetrable—and that is just about everyone—this is the book.

The thesis of Objective Economics changes everything about economics, including economics’ method, the conception of the economy, the meaning of competition, the idea of price, the nature of business costs, the concept of supply, the concept of demand, the law of supply and demand, the theory of price, and the theory of total national output. Overall, as the result of all the preceding, Objective Economics demonstrates that capitalism is the practical economic system.

About the Author: M. Northrup Buechner has taught economics at St. John's University, New York, for forty years. He has published articles in The New York Times, The Objectivist Forum, The Southern Economic Journal, and other scholarly and popular publications. He has lectured on many college campuses and has spoken at Objectivist and economic conferences around the world.

Book Description 378 pages. Once every decade or so a book is published that changes the way people view a topic, even if they consider themselves experts in that area. I believe that Professor Buechner's new text will be one of those rare books. Forget the pop-culture economics books that have appeared on the scene in recent years with their anecdotes about crime waves and parking meters. If one truly wishes to learn about the not so 'dismal science,' Objective Economics is the book to read. I intend to recommend it to all of my students. (Dr. George A. Mangiero ).
