Ordinary Business of Life by Backhouse, Roger E.
Ordinary Business of Life: A History of Economics from the Ancient World to the Twenty-First Century
by Backhouse, Roger E.
 
While some regard economics as a modern invention, Backhouse shows that the origins of contemporary economic thought can be traced back to the ancients. Taking us from Homer to the frontiers of game theory, this book presents an engrossing history of economics, what Alfred Marshall called "the study of mankind in the ordinary business of life."
