1 HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT PAOLA TUBARO University of Greenwich; Centre Maurice Halbwachs ike economic history, the history of economic thought (HET) investigates economic issues in long-run perspective. Yet the two fields are distinct and should not be confounded: HET does not study economic facts such as the 1929 financial crisis but rather economic theories and economic literature. It focuses on the historical roots of economic ideas and takes into account a wide array of schools of thought; in conjunction with pure theory and the history of facts, it constitutes part of a comprehensive approach to the study of the economic bases of modern societies.

Accounts of the market mechanism of this time period place emphasis on the symmetry of supply-and-demand factors and on the resulting equilibrium. Individual demand and supply are derived, respectively, from agents’ calculations of utility (for consumers) and profit/cost (for firms), and market supply and demand are obtained by aggregating all individual values. When market supply equals demand, the market is in equilibrium—that is, the decisions of all households and all firms are consistent with one another.

The answers provided at different epochs, though based on different arguments and different sources of evidence, often have elements in common—partly because these are issues that have major philosophical and political implications. By accounting for the circumstances in which a variety of responses have emerged in the past, HET can contribute to today’s reflection on these issues. As Keynes (1936) once wrote, The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood.
