The Genesis of Macroeconomics

Antoin E. Murphy (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a synthesis of the discussions in the preceding chapters, which detailed the considerable legacy selected 17th- to early 19th-century writers left to macroeconomics. Drawing together the ideas of the selected economists yields a formidable list of contributions that they made in providing a skeletal framework for modern macroeconomics. The chapter then analyzes the weaknesses and wrong directions taken by the authors presented in this book.

Keywords:   macroeconomic ideas, economists, Sir William Petty, John Law, Richard Cantillon, François Quesnay, David Hume, Anne Robert Jacques Turgot, Henry Thornton
