(p.95) 5 Tuscan Economic Thought: Ministerial Memorandums and Public Discourse
Luxury and Public Happiness


Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how a culture of ministerial memorandums was transformed into an increasingly public culture around the middle of the century through new media and the new role played by the region's academies. It explains that this shift allowed new actors, mainly secular clergy writing in the context of enlightened Catholicism, to contribute to the debate. It adds that this broadening of the range of participants in economic debate beyond administrators reintroduced, to an extent, moral considerations into the luxury debate.

Keywords:   ministerial memorandum, Catholicism, clergy, public culture, luxury debate, economic debate
