Book Description

Arguing that the disciplines of economics and sociology are inter-related and vitally important to each other, this book discusses major issues such as the effects of urbanization, population growth, and the growth of various forms of nationalism from both economic and socio-political viewpoints. In addition the significance and limits of pure economics are examined, as are the sociological factors in modern economic theory, as well as power and economic law.

Table of Contents

Chapter 1 A Plain Approach to The Problem; Chapter 2 The Economic and The Sociological Aspect; Chapter 3 Significance and Limits of Pure Economics1.For this and the following Chapter I owe many valuable suggestions to the writings of Eduard Heimann. See above all his paper on “Sociological Preconceptions of Economic Theory” (Social Research, vol. I, Nr. 1, pp. 22-44), but also “Sozialwissenschaft und Wirklichkeit”, Tübingen, 1932, and “Soziale Theorie des Kapitalismus”, Tübingen, 1929. Cp. alsoH.Neisser, “Der Gegensatz von ‘anschaulich’ und ‘rational’ in der Geschichte der Volkswirtschaftslehre” (Archiv. f. Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik, vol. 65, Nr. 2, pp. 225-50) and my paper, “über den Sinn und die Grenzen verstehender Nationalökonomie” (Weltwirtschaftliches Archiv., vol. 36, Nr. 2, pp. 149-62).; Chapter 4 The “Society of Exchange”; Chapter 5 The Sociological Factor in Modern Economic Theory; Chapter 6 Economics and The Social Trend of Capitalism; Chapter 7 Power and Economic Law; Chapter 8 Some Evident Conclusions;
