Boekbespreking – Visions of inequality: From the French revolution to the end of the cold war

Universiteit Maastricht

Visions of Inequality looks at how income distribution was perceived and studied by the most important economists from before the French Revolution to the end of the Cold War. It takes us from Quesnay and the physiocrats, for whom social classes were prescribed by law and who introduced the notion of the economic surplus, through the classic nineteenth-century treatises of Smith, Ricardo, and Marx. They saw class as an economic category defined by the ownership of means of production.
