Article
Full-text available
During recent decades, David Ricardo’s ideas on international trade have been sub- mitted to new scrutiny. This research has led to a new understanding of the so-called ‘principle of comparative advantage’ and shown that the alleged ‘Ricardian’ model of foreign trade is based on a misunderstanding of Ricardo’s text. In this story, the parts played...

In this chapter, we focus on the French economists that, all along the eighteenth century, formed what we call “philosophie économique”. In Section 2, this current of thought is precisely defined: a review of the troops shows how its members (Boisguilbert, Quesnay, Turgot, Condorcet and Say) refer to a new view on the nature and role of self-intere...

This introduction to the book sums up the main results developed in the different chapters and emphasises the basic features of the reception of Malthus’s works and ideas in Europe, America and Japan.

Article

During the first decades of the nineteenth century, the emergence of “économie politique chrétienne”, with the aim of founding a new school of political economy, marked the French intellectual landscape. The name of J.-P. A. de Villeneuve-Bargemont is usually cited in this context. But, before Villeneuve-Bargemont, Charles de Coux had launched this...

This paper deals with some difficulties presented by Ricardo’s texts on international trade, taking seriously Ricardo’s account of the systematic interaction of real and monetary phenomena. After a brief reassessment of the main features of Ricardo’s views on foreign trade, some basic questions are examined, concerning the method of analysis and th...

Chapter
Full-text available
It is always fascinating to see how the writings and ideas of authors — be they philosophers or scientists — are progressively taken into account, discussed, accepted or rejected in their own countries according to various historical intellectual circumstances. It is even more interesting to study how these writings and ideas cross borders and spre...
Chapter
Full-text available
The relationship between economics, religion and morals are by far more complex than usually stated. It is possible to show that, at some crucial steps of the development of economics, religious thought gave it a decisive impetus, lying thus at the heart of this development. But it is also true that religious thought developed a strong critique of...

The book highlights the similarities and differences between them. This book seeks to delineate the diffusion of Ricardo's theory in various parts of Europe and Japan.

Article
Full-text available
The developments of political economy in France between 1750 and 1776 did not allocate a central place to the discussion of the nature and functions of money. The object of this paper is to account for this fact and what it denotes: the disappearance of money as a central object in the discourse on economy and society. We outline the context of thi...
Book
Many important economic and political debates today refer to the nature and the role of the State: should governments intervene in the economy and interfere with the operations of markets? On what occasion and how? In order to better understand these questions and the controversies they have raised, Studies in the History of Public Economics re-con...
Article
Full-text available
In nineteenth-century France, the nature and functions of the State were an almost constant subject of debate among liberal economists. The aim of this paper is to analyse and restate some hitherto neglected discussions and to discover some bold ideas that could form the hallmarks of a French approach to the question. The enquiry starts at the turn...
Article
Full-text available
Drawing inspiration from aspects of the sensationist philosophy of the time and also the political philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Jean-Joseph-Louis Graslin (1727-1790) — a fierce critic of Physiocracy — developed a remarkably coherent political economy based on a “three stages” theory of society, a labour theory of normal prices and distribut...
Article
Full-text available
For many centuries religion dominated the thought and behaviour of peoples. From the end of the seventeenth century, however, it was progressively replaced by political economy, which in turn developed its full influence during the nineteenth century, imposing a new 'ethos' and a new 'conduct of life'. So that we might better understand this fact,...
Article
Full-text available
There was in early-nineteenth-century France a widespread revival of religious sentiment, after the turmoil of the Revolution and the intellectual onslaught on religion so central to the French Enlightenment. Simultaneously, political economy became more prominent among “publicists”—educated people or theoreticians writing as journalists—and politi...
Article
Full-text available
This paper examines some ideas developed in the field of public economics by French Sensationist political economists, from Turgot and Condorcet to the young Jean-Baptiste Say. An ideal-typical account of their position is based on the fact that issues raised by public expenditure and revenue are not dealt with independently. Instead, a strong link...
Article
Full-text available
In matter of history of political economy, one thought during a long time that the primitive authors’economic considerations were only incidental, and tightly bound to their political philosophy or their theological concerns. However, from the 16th to the 18th century, economy, having cut every link with religion and religious morals on one side, a...

Full-text available
Two controversies concerning Marx’s theory of value were of particular importance during the 1960s and 1970s. The first is well known and has attracted most of the attention of Marxian scholars during these decades: I allude to the celebrated ‘transformation problem’2 and to the spirited debates that followed the publication of Sraffa’s Production...
Article
Full-text available
The problem of the transition to a market economy provoked a lasting and important debate in eighteenth-century Ferance. The climax was reached during the 1760s and the 1770s with the two important pre-revoluntionary attempts, in 1763–64 and 1774a–76, to liberalize the French economy and, initially, the grain market. During these controversies, the...
