Resumen:
Tomado de la pasta: "Who were the classical economists? They were the philosophical visionaries who forged the early phase of economic thought, when big ideas ruled and maths had yet to take over. Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Malthus, Mill, Marx: scarcely a day goes by without their authority being invoked to lend weight to contemporary arguments. So, join The Economist's Callum Williams to get to know them properly. See how the edifice of modern economics was built, brick by brick, from the classical school's insights and quarrels. And find out which of their ideas stand the test of time"
