Политическая философия и политическая экономия
This is a review of Sophus A. Reinert’s book «Translating empire: emulation and the origins of political economy». In the book author examines the history of political economy through the study of editions and translations of the economic treatises of the 17th and 18th centuries. The main thesis of the book is that economic competition between nations is a struggle, similar to military combat. Economic development is always grounded on state interventions, as obvious in the case of England, that have been traditionally regarded as a bastion of the free trade.
