The National System of Political Economy

Marx and Adam Smith formed the basis of 20th century economic theory, but Friedrich List formed the basis of 20th century economic practice. In showing that England’s rise was facilitated not by free markets but by protectionism, List pointed the way for nations to succeed in the face of competition. All nationalist economies have consciously followed his blueprint: Germany, Italy, China, and above all, America from 1850-1950—this is the America that Trump wanted to make economically great again.

Imperium Press brings you List’s magnum opus, The National System of Political Economy, an economic text forgotten only in the West, and by far the most important for understanding the history and economics of the 20th century.
