Book Description

Vilfredo Pareto was one of the great systems theorists of the twentieth century, embracing economics, psychology, sociology and politics. In this important work, Michael McLure takes as his subject of study the rapport between Pareto's economic and sociological theory, and consequently, illuminates the role of economics in public policy development.
