Description - Jean-Baptiste Say and the Classical Canon in Economics by Samuel Hollander
This book explores the perceived paradigmatic conflict within British classical economics between the so called 'Ricardo School' and the contemporary French Economics of Jean-Baptiste Say. Samuel Hollander provides the reader with extensive evidence, utilising all editions of Say's main texts and his lesser-known writings, in order to demonstrate Say's adherence to much of Ricardian theory. The book focuses on selected doctorinal issues and the surrounding debates including: * value and distribution with extension to growth theory * real income and its measurement with implications for trade and taxation * 'Law of Markets' This intriguing book will interest all serious historians of economic thought and will find a place on the bookshelves of many economists across the world.
