Although Say is often depicted as a one-dimensional libertarian ideologist who popularized Adam Smith's economics in France, Forget (economics, U. of Manitoba, Canada) depicts him as a complex republican whose interests included bringing together support for free markets, industrial development, government legislation, and the educational system to create and maintain an ideal civil society. This book also contains the full text (translated into English) of Say's Olbie, a utopian novel he wrote for an academic competition in 1800.
