 Principles of Economics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Principles of Economics (Grundsätze der Volkwirthschaftslehre) is a book by economist Carl Menger which is credited with the founding of the Austrian School of economics.
Menger stressed uncertainty in the making of economic decisions, rather than relying on "homo oeconomicus" or the rational man who was fully informed of all circumstances impinging on his decisions.
Most importantly he fundamentally rejected the use of mathematical methods insisting that the function of economics was to investigate the essences rather than the specific quantities of economic phenomena.

Principles not only revolutionized value, price, and marginal utility theories, but it was also used as the primary textbook by several generations of Austrian students and scholars, including Ludwig von Mises and F. von Hayek.
Essentially this comes down to regarding economic phenomena as the outcomes of rational individual choice and - because of the multitude of actors involved and the interdependency of their choices - their pattern is one of disequilibrium and continual adjustment.
In his Principles, Menger states clearly that the conditions for something to be a good are (reinterpreted by myself):1-There must be a neccesity(or, more propely, a desire of any kind to be satisfied).

I disdain economic dogma, the economic beliefs that are so commonly bandied about, and seemingly plausible, but generally unproven and with little merit.
Economics abounds with such things, and Galbraith's insights then are wholly relevant now, both as a critique of the current administration's policies, and as a guidepost for a better future.
John Kenneth Galbraith is a refreshingly non-ideological view of economics which actually recognizes that perhaps it's better to offer opportunities to the poor rather than kicks to the teeth to encourage growth out of poverty.

This principle is valid whether the goods can be placed in direct causal connection with the satisfaction of human needs, or derive their goods-character from a more or less indirect causal connection with the satisfaction of human needs.
But it is evident that the increase in the consumption goods at human disposal is not the exclusive effect of the division of labor.
