« Équilibre » et fiscalité au Siècle des lumières. L'économie politique de Jean-Joseph Graslin


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    The Jean-Joseph Graslin?s Essai analytique sur la richesse et sur l?impôt [1767] is at the same time one of the most brilliant critical analysis of physiocracy and the synthesis of a systematic thought which announces the sensualist political economy of the end of the Ancien Régime. The author, who argues in terms of needs and utility, describes a generalized trade economy in which the prices of goods and the means of production are determined by market forces. Refusing the logical framework of Quesnay and his disciples, Graslin defines an ?equilibrium? which includes social inequalities and taxation. Classification JEL : B11, B31
