António Oliveira Marreca: Um economista no parlamento


  • Carlos Bastien


  • Cecília Campos



António Oliveira Marreca was a Portuguese economist from the mid 19th century as well as a professor of political economy for a brief period. At a certain stage, his deviation from the prevailing liberal canon became apparent as he moved closer to the perspectives of a “national system of political economy”. His action as a theoretical economist and as a doctrinaire of nationalist developmentalism has already been studied. Nevertheless, his intervention in the field of economic and financial policy remains somewhat obscure. This paper aims to characterize Oliveira Marreca’s ideas regarding these topics, in particular those revealed during his parliamentary activity. It will assess their impact and iluminate the way his positions fitted within his broader economic ideas as well as within the prevailing economic thought of his period.
