The Reception of David Ricardo in Continental Europe and Japan
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
This book is a coherent and unique collection of chapters exploring the reception and diffusion of David Ricardo’s writings in different languages. The book highlights the similarities and differences between them. This book seeks to delineate the diffusion of Ricardo's theory in various parts of Europe and Japan. While there may have been case studies about the reception of Ricardo’s thoughts for several countries, there has not yet been a systematic study of the diffusion process under consideration as a whole.
This book caters to all scholars dedicated to the history of economic thought and to students who are interested to learn about the peculiarities of the evolution of economic theories in different countries. This book is the first of its kind, with no known predecessor, and it aims to shed light on how and why some of Ricardo’s writings were picked up and why others were not. Given Ricardo’s importance in the field of economics, the book will be of interest to many.

Ricardo is ‘an occasionally overly deep thinker’, who bases his ideas on ‘safe principles’ and practical experience acquired on the stock market, although these ideas are occasionally cast in ‘unintelligible and inapplicable theories’, as is the case, for example, in the initial chapters of the book that
