On the Theory of Needs

Cuhel's 1907 masterwork now available in English

Franz Cuhel, who lived from 1862 to 1914, and participated in seminars in Vienna in the early years of the Austrian School of economics. He is the most famous economist to ever hail from Prague.

He had some fascinating insights into the structure of human decision making and what it implies for our lives and economic institutions. Sadly, not much of his work seems to be translated into English, but his most famous article is. 

Cuhel believed that the theory of wants was undeveloped within economic science. So he set out to improve it, and, in doing so, he posited an interesting taxonomy that transversed the realms of psychology and economics. 

This is the first-ever epub production of this important work.
