Show Summary Details


Newcomb did more than merely extol the desirability of using scientific method to attack current political and economic problems. He himself had developed into a political economist of some repute, publishing numerous technical and popular expositions on finance, trade, taxation, currency, and labor. Through a steady stream of books, articles, notes, reviews, and speeches, Newcomb sought to provide a dispassionate analysis of the political and economic issues of his day, thus demonstrating rather than merely describing the social utility of scientific method.
