Book Description: This history of 19th-century economic thought discusses the key members of each classical school and reassesses their work. The author suggests that Ricardism declined after 1830 and was only revived with the work of John Stuart Mill. The book also resurrects the important Anglo-Irish school of thought at Trinity College, Dublin under Archbishop Richard Whately. Later chapters focus on the roots of Karl Marx and the nature of his doctrines, and "laissez-faire" thought in France, including the work of Frederic Bastiat. Also included is a treatment of the Bullionist versus anti-Bullionist and the Currency versus Banking School controversies in the first half of the 19th century, and their influence outside Great Britain. Tracing economic thought from Smith to Marx, this book includes all the important figures in each school of thought and assesses their theories in religious, political, philosophical and historical context.
