DISABLED PRODUCT: Essay on the Nature of Commerce in General

"Although in all essential parts, Cantillon was a precursor of the Austrian School, his brilliant Essay from 1755 is widely praised in the economics profession as a pioneering work in economic methodology, theory, and policy. Every student of economics should read this concise and highly comprehensive book for its insights, and economists should periodically read the book to remind themselves of the logic and usefulness of economic theory... Measured by the numbers of sheer breakthroughs, this may be the most important book in the history of thought." Mark Thornton, Columbus State University
