The Economic Discourse of Joseph Garnier in Spain

Juan Hern?ndez Andreu and Estrella Trincado

HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT AND POLICY, 2019, vol. 8, issue 2, 5-34

Abstract: In the 19th century the liberal author Joseph Garnier (1813-1881) had a clear influence on Spanish economists; however, his discourse has not been much studied in the literature. His Elements were adopted as an economics textbook at Spanish universities and it was one of the most recommended books on political economy. In contrast, other authors such as John Stuart Mill were not so well received. A study of the reasons for this influence in the context of nineteenth-century Spain is therefore needed. This article aims to fill this gap and highlight the work of Garnier who facilitated the diffusion of the free-trade doctrine and the rationalization of the administration in Spain.
