The use made of the public Money must be strictly checked, the public finances being by their nature a subordinate administration. For the completion of the aim set by the giving in of accounts, all accountancy and even the concept and regulations of the finances have to be revised. The giving in of accounts has to embrace not only all the aspects, financial and patrimonial, of how the money has been used, but must show also the correlation between these two aspects. The laws and practice of this country consider the investment accounts as having a financial character. The checking...

One of the most acute problems the world is facing now, is that of housing. To solve it, several solutions have been proposed, only three of which have been tried on a bigger scale: the direct intervention of the government, the private enterprise and the cooperative system. The first solution tried, has not been a success, as the unilateral intervention of the State could not solve the problem adequately; therefore an appeal was made to the private enterprise, to which some privileges were conceded; however, an other kind of enterprise should join its efforts to theirs, and this in our...

The ideal from would be the social liberalism in which the evils of both the capitalist as well as the socialistic systems would be cured by fundamental reforms of the public and private markets and of the banking, monetary and financing systems.

Economics is for them nothing more than an instrument to social welfare. The institutionalists...

It is a guide to the first part of his book on "Introduzione alla Finanza", in which the author infers that finances could not be understood without a through knowledge of Economics, this one determining the laws which govern finances. To arrive at this conclusion, he surveys all the ancient and modern theories of finances, which he refutes one by one, after demonstrating their incompatibility with the economic phenomena. He concludes that the science of finances consists in the application of economic theory to the financial facts and that it is itself a part of the economic theory.
The word "socio-logic" has been intended to underline the existence of a logical nucleus in sociology, be it pure or applied, as well as in sociography. What distinguishes, from this point of view, the various sciences, is the type of logic used. Conceived as free from estimative judgments the sociology can chose the knowledge found in the social sciences, which is free from such judgment, but conceived as estimative science, she cannot adopt judgments encountered in the other fields of the social sciences, without thoroughly revising them. A sociologist must be at the same time "socio-logician" if he is to...
