Jean-Baptiste Say, the Father of Austrian Public Finance: Views and Taxation
Tags History of the Austrian School of Economics

Carl Menger, the founder of the Austrian School of economics, was instrumental in developing the Austrian analytical framework. However, the foundation of Austrian theory predates Menger by centuries. Beginning with the Scholastics of the sixteenth century, there developed a tradition of economic thought on the European continent that includes the French school of the Turgot Cantillon era. An important link in that chain of thought is the work of Jean-Baptiste Say.
