Jean-baptiste say et la question de la population

Jean-Baptiste Fréry ()

Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in Political Economy, 2014, issue 66, 69-94

Abstract: The population matter in Jean-Baptiste Say’s work is not a subject traditionally covered by secondary literature. The limited existing works, which consist of general studies on the question, only refer to some theoretical elements of Say’s theory. No approach actually examines how Say’s theory of population is related to the main elements of his economic theory. Studying this link is fundamental in order to understand the differences between Say’s theory of population and Thomas Robert Malthus’s referential theory on the topic.
