The Classical Theory of Economic Growth

Synopsis

Walter Eltis's classic account of the theories of growth and distribution of Franccedil;ois Quesnay, Adam Smith, Robert Malthus, David Ricardo, and Karl Marx is reprinted with a substantial new Introduction setting the work in a broader context. He restates their individual contributions rigorously with extensive references to the original texts. He shows how each developed the work of his predecessors to produce a coherent and distinctive classical theory of growth.
