Essays on Some Unsettled Questions of Political Economy

John Stuart MILL (1806 - 1873)

This is Mill’s first work on economics. It foreshadows his Political Economy which was the standard Anglo-American Economics textbook of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Mill’s economic theory moved from free market capitalism, to government intervention within the precepts of Utilitarianism, and finally to Socialism. [Summary written by Gary Gilberd]
