Chapter 4 in Antonio Serra and the Economics of Good Government, 2016, pp 63-88 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The intense debate on the economic conditions of the Kingdom of Naples in the first three decades of the 17th century marked an important advance in Neapolitan culture: for the first time, economic problems were separated from ethical thinking and approached in an autonomous way.1 In Naples, as in other dominions of the Spanish Empire, a copious literature in the form of arbitrios (advice) appeared, proposing measures to reverse the decline of the economy.
