The influence of political developments on the evolution of economic thought is the main theme behind this book. As the authors reveal throughout the book, history has shown many times that political events can trigger the formulation of new economic conceptions that in turn influence the future economic development of a country. The papers are arranged into five main areas of interest: monetary theory and policy economic crisis in France and the emergence of the physiocratic school the co-evolution of political ideas and economic thought in different countries and periods in Europe continuity and discontinuity in Russian economic thought attempted economic solutions to the problems posed by the Great Depression and the associated political transformation. Political Events and Economic Ideas will hold great appeal and interest for researchers and scholars of political thought, as well as historians of economic thought worldwide.
