Economic Science

This course investigates the field of political economy with an eye to establishing the subject on a scientific foundation as expounded by Henry George’s in his last book, The Science of Political Economy. Among the topics to be covered are the nature of science and the role of natural law in it, the importance of clear definition, the nature of wealth, what money is and what it can and cannot do, and the vital role cooperation plays in the production of wealth. Popular objections to George’s thinking will be examined as we consider whether indeed that thinking achieves insight worthy of being called scientific
