Letters to Mr. Malthus

  • Letters to Malthus by J. B. Say
April 22, 2008

Tags Political Theory

J.B. Say battled the prophet of doom in this rare series of letters that explain how economic growth occurs without destabilizing economic forces. He writes with passion and personality, anticipating so many Austrian insights. An extra treat in this book is Say's attempt to write a Catechism of Political Economy, which is a kind of tutorial organized in a Q&A format to deal with the main claims of economics.

This book was an important tool in forging the classical tradition as it was understood on the continent, and you will find great affinity with the Austrian tradition. J.B. Say was a great champion of economic truth, and this is even more obvious in looking at his attempts at public persuasion.
