FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORKS IN ECONOMICS OF THE 19TH CENTURY.

The fundamental groundwork of the Principles is based on the theory that given the free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labor expended in production.

This thesis was reinforced by Ricardo’s theory of distribution in which he argued that the demand for food determines the margin of cultivation;this margin determines rent; the amount necessary to maintain the laborer determines wages; the difference between the amount produced by a given quantity of labor determines profit.

Ricardo was the principal founder of the classical school of economics.

His main doctrines were expounded by his disciples James Mill and McCulloch and accepted by John Stuart Mill. David Ricardo’s exact mathematical approach and deductive methods have influenced succeeding generations of economists, especially in the fields of currency and banking.
