Economics may be defined, briefly, as the study of men earning a living; or, more fully, as the study of the material world and of the activities and mutual relations of men, so far as all these are the objective conditions to gratifying desires.
by F.W. Taussig - The MacMillan Company
The author states the principles of economics in such form that they shall be comprehensible to an educated and intelligent person who has not before made any systematic study of the subject. The book does not gloss over difficulties, though.
