Analisi dell’ economia privata e pubblica degli antichi relativamente a quella de’ moderni …
First edition. Cagnazzi (1764–1852) was originally a teacher of mathematics by profession, receiving a professorship at Naples in 1806. ‘His life was full of trouble; having been concerned in political intrigues, he had to flee from Naples and, after wandering, nearly always on foot, through Italy and Switzerland, and after being imprisoned more than once, he had to seek refuge in Florence. He returned to Naples under Murat’s government’ (Palgrave). He wrote a number of works on economics, and one on statistics, desiring ‘government interference whenever practicable, and wrote, in particular, a book on ancient and modern economical principles (Analisi dell’ economia privata e pubblica …) to point out that modern principles are preferable!’ (ibid.).
