Prelude in Economics: A New Approach to Economics by Christopher Houghton Budd

An aphoristic guide to the cardinal ideas of modern economic life, its twenty-two brief chapters survey the major socio-economic questions of our time and point to a fruitful relationship between capitalism and socialism.
This book was written as a 'reader' and based on many years of seminars, it provides an initial excursion into associative economics. Intended to acquaint the layperson with economics in comprehensible language, but also to reset the cast of mind for economics generally, it covers many of the main ideas and concepts that characterise an associative approach.
