    Story
    (19)

    The classical economists pioneered a new way of thinking about the uniquely human tendency to produce, trade, consume, and accumulate. Adam Smith (1723-1790) explained how the division of labor expands productive power and argued for freedom in economic affairs. David Ricardo (1772-1823), a London stockbroker, developed the concept of diminishing returns, the wages-fund doctrine, and classical rent theory.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Classical Economists in three words, what would they be?

    It gives a great introduction to the foundation of our modern economy. It is essential knowledge for anyone with even a passing interest in social, political and economic issues. It is very apt in the current economic climate and the raging debate over what is fairer capitalism


    What other book might you compare The Classical Economists to and why?

    The overview of each economist with the background of the time in which they lived and created their views


    What does Louis Rukeyser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It brings the material to life in a way not possible by just reading it.

    Alfred Marshall, a British economics professor at Oxford University, developed economics into a more rigorous, professional discipline than ever before. He invented concepts such as price elasticity, the representative firm, consumer's surplus, and other ideas that significantly enlarged the "analytical tool kit" of the economist.
