"The ancient Greeks left a wealth of knowledge through their surviving writings on a wide variety of themes, including science, logic, philosophy, literature, and the arts. In addition, the city-state of Athens is considered the birthplace of intellectual freedom and democracy -- lasting legacies that helped to mold the ideas that have influenced the development of Western Civilization. But, in comparison, their discussions on economics were often few and almost always relatively unsystematic." (09/20/16)
