"To a modern economist, the most striking feature of Buisguilbert's work is its resemblance to Keynesian economics. Facarello does s good job of sketching the main parallels. Perhaps this plaint is not so much a criticism of Facarello as it is a statement that despite his workman effort, much remains to be done. Anglo-Saxon scholards of French pre-Smithian economic though will find this book useful, if for no other reason that the dearth of secondary sources on Buisguillbert in English. This book is a welcome addition to a sparse literature in which little new or original research has emerged over the past three decades. - History of Political Economy, Robert F. Hebert, Auburn University."Vom Verlag:
