Le financier citoyen.
A fine copy of the first edition of this anonymously published work on the financial administration of France. All we know about Jean-Baptiste Naveau (1716–1762) is that he was ‘directeur de correspondance et fermier des devoirs de Bretagne’ (Quérard). This work examines the policies of the ministry of finance since the beginning of the seventeenth century, and reflects upon the major economic theories of that period. Naveau goes on to question the financial policies of his day and the impact on the national resources, farming in particular. He then discusses the current system of taxation and its impact on the social classes, agriculture, trade and consumption. Naveau’s ideas on taxation were critically reviewed by Voltaire in his L’homme aux quarante Écus (1768).
