Sax was born in Jauernig (then, Austrian-Silesia; today, Javornik in Czechoslovakia). He studied in Vienna, where he became a university lecturer. After some practical activity (among other things in the railway organization), he became, in 1879, professor of political economy at the University of Prague. From 1879 to 1885 he was a member of the Vienna Chamber of Deputies. In 1893 he abandoned his Prague professorship and retired to Abbazia, Istria (then, Italy; today, Opatija in Croatia), where he died in 1927.
