‘THE LAST OF THE PHYSIOCRATS’ SCHMALZ, Theodor Anton Heinrich.
Économie politique, ouvrage traduit de l’Allemand ... par Henri Jouffroy ... revu et annoté sur la traduction, par M. Fritot ... Tome premier [- deuxième].
First edition in French of this work on the principles of economics, originally published in 1818 as Staatswirtschaftslehre in Briefen an einen teutschen Erbprinzen. Schmalz (1760–1831) has been called ‘the last of the physiocrats’. ‘Though he criticised Adam Smith severely, he was opposed to protective duties. He compared Colbertism to the Ptolemaic, physiocracy to the Copernican system, Smith being the Tycho Brahe holding an intermediate position between the two. The doctrines of Quesnay, he was convinced, would ere long everywhere triumph’ (Palgrave).
