Inhaltsangabe: David Ricardo (1772-1823), the founder of the classical school of economics, applied the deductive logic of the philosopher James Mill to the analysis of monetary principles. His chief work, Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817, had a profound impact and remains one of the groundworks of modern economics. Ricardo's labor theory of value, as well as his elaboration of the division of incomes, and the function of wages, rent, and trade, deeply influenced the economic philosophies of Karl Marx, John Stuart Mill, Alfred Marshall, and many others.
Über den Autor: David Ricardo was born, of Jewish parents, on 18 April 1772. His interest in economics developed rather late, at the age of 29 after reading Adam Smiths The Wealth of Nations. Ricardos subsequent friendship with two of the leading economists at that timeJames Mill and T.R. Malthusfurther stimulated his interest in the science of economics. Besides The Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, Ricardo published four monographs/pamphlets: (1) The High Price of Bullion: A Proof of the Depreciation of Bank Notes (1810); (2) Reply to Mr. Bosanquets Practical Observations on the Report of the Bullion Committee (1811); (3) An Essay on the Influence of a Low Price of Corn on the Profits of Stock (1815); and (4) Proposals for an Economical and Secure Currency. (1816). Ricardo was a member of the British Parliament and he was much respected because of his eminence as an economist. Ricardian economics dominated mainstream economic thinking in England for almost the whole of 19th century. As John Maynard Keynes put it in his General Theroy (1936), Ricardo conquered England as completely as the Holy Inquisition conquered Spain.
