June Series of the Month: National System of Political Economy

With all of the political turmoil happening around the world in the last few months (Brexit and the Theresa May election, The Paris Agreement, the James Comey testimony, etc.), we at Cosimo wanted to shine the spotlight on National System of Political Economy by Friedrich List for those readers interested in learning more about collaboration between countries and how it affects us.

One of the most prominent economic philosophers of the 19th century, on par with-but espousing quite different thinking than-Karl Marx and Adam Smith, Friedrich List explores in this three-volume series a reasoned doctrine of national and pan-national management of trade, a global collaboration between government and business. 

Volume 1 examines the pronounced influence of freedom prudently balanced with regulation in the economic histories of the nations of Europe and North America. In Volume 2, he delineates his theory of supportive interconnectedness, discussing everything from the value of the individual's ability to produce wealth to the edge established businesses have over new ones. Volume 3 explores the economic and political systems that nurture ascendant nations in their global sovereignty. 

A close reading of this 1841 classic is an absolute necessity for anyone who hopes to understand world economic history of the last 150 years.
