Boland's book will help a new generation of economists to overcome the traditional economic metaphysics, exploring the central questions by - hopefully - more testable, realistic concepts. This book is about forming effective critiques of neoclassical economics. Its focus is on constructive criticism of the foundations of neoclassical theory, beginning with what Alfred Marshall called the Principles of Economics'. It concludes that there is still much that can be done to make neoclassical economics more realistic.
