Book 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.
