Before Method and Models

The Political Economy of Malthus and Ricardo

Ryan Walter

Oxford Studies in the History of Economics

  • Replaces the outdated and unhistorical notion of 'classical political economy' with a contextual and historical account of political economy in the early nineteenth century
  • Shows how theories of political economy were inserted into parliamentary reasoning and achieved legislative traction
  • Illustrates that continuing uncertainty and debate over the role that economists play in society is an unresolved contest inherited from the nineteenth century
