Description - Political Economy of Public Finance in Britain,1767-1873 by Takuo Dome
No book has examined and compared the thought of the "classical economists" from the perspective of public finance rather than that of pure theory. Until now. This volume critically analyses and compares the writings on government expenditure, taxation and public debt of thinkers such as Adam Smith, Jeremy Bentham, David Ricardo and Thomas Malthus. These key figures are united by their struggles with fiscal theory - an important feature in the formation and development of political economy. An original and intriguing read, this book breathes fresh life into the history of economic thought. Dome's clear and exciting arguments will make for essential reading for historians of economic thought, economic historians and those with an interest in public finance.
