A supposedly "Great" foundation stone of Economics, and especially the Historical School, it was soon bypassed by Marx and the Chicago School as well as the Khaldun-Laffer curve, and, lest we forget, Ayn Rand and the Austrian School--all of which, fittingly ended up in a Land Fill outside of Cleveland or a similar rust belt city. A terrific Xmas gift for a Sadist to give any of his friends/paramours or former Economics Professors.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.The books received are in a much worse condition than described:. Spine of Vol. I is not only "tender", but open from top to bottom. All four spine ends are damaged. Both backs with lack of leather.Where are the scans of the damages? I pack books well but cannot held responsible for PO damage or clumsy buyers.
The book was wet and moldyUnless the PO dropped it into a puddle, there was no way it was wet and "moldy" No scans provided—just a buyer trying to sully my reputation. (most likely he was upset with the price he paid)
