About this book

This book provides insight into the remarkable life and work of the Italian economist Antonio de Viti de Marco (1858-1943). This book presents eleven interviews with American and Italian scholars from various disciplines that provide a profile of this major intellectual as an economic theorist, politician, and individual. He was the founder of the pure theory of Public Finance, played an important role in the foundation of Public Choice, and was also a staunch liberal and radical politician. An English translation of one of his books, made as early as 1936, greatly influenced James M. Buchanan, Nobel prize-winner for economics.

Reviews

“One finishes reading this book with a fine awareness of de Viti’s interesting and tragic personal life, an understanding of his intense political involvement, and knowledge of his creativity as an economic theorist. … Manuela Mosca has crafted a book that can be read on multiple levels depending on a reader’s interest in the material. … Manuela Mosca has assembled a book that illuminates nicely all three elements of de Viti’s life and times.” (Richard E. Wagner, EH.Net, September, 2016)
