Description

Jean-Baptiste Say (1767-1832) is remembered primarily for Say's Law, one of the cornerstones of classical economics. The success of his Traite d'economie Politique made Say the best-known expositor of Adam Smith in Europe and America, and he became France's first professor of political economy. The set covers the following themes: * Say in the history of economics * classical statements on Say's Law * later statements on Say's Law (the prelude to the General Theory) * the Keynesian Revolution and the attack on Say's Law * Lange, Say's Law and the demand for money * modern reconstructions of Say's Law * commentaries on classical views relating to Say's Law * Retrieving the classical understanding of Say's Law.
