A Case Study in Early Mathematical Economics: Pietro Verri and Paolo Frisi, 1772


  • Tubaro, Paola


In eighteenth-century Italy a number of interesting efforts were made to apply mathematical methods to economic analysis. Scholars living in the Milan area were especially keen on mathematizing economic issues. R. D. Theocharis identified a common current of thought, which he called the Milanese School, in his pioneering research on early mathematical economics (Theocharis 1983, p. 2).
