Book 01 - A Science

There is always a beginning!

This is the first book presenting the science of the economy.  Like all the other books later, this one begins with the goal and the learning objectives. It ends with some questions for review, including the definitions and other learning helpers.

I'm a Québéker from the Eastern Townships, the first part of Canada to delelop the Industrial Revolution.  So I present my exemples from my region and my country.
