Abstract

Frank Decker provides an introduction to the vast work of Gunnar Heinsohn and Otto Steiger in this first English edition. Ownership Economics (Eigentumsökonomik) is a condensed version of Heinsohn and Steiger’s Ownership, Interest and Money: Unresolved Mysteries in Economic Theory (Eigentum, Zins, und Geld: Ungelöste Probleme der Wirtschaftswissenschaft). As such, it is perhaps best suited for those academics unfamiliar with the arguments of Heinsohn and Steiger.

Keywords: book review, ownership economics, property, property rights
