Synopsis

In this essay, Turgot traces the development of society from its beginning to modern commercial society, the distribution of wealth and taxation leaves the individual and the mechanism of capitalism free of state control. At the foundation of economic science, Turgot became its most profound thinker. He prompted a democratic, just and prosperous society in which the liberty of the individual and the power of the state wereweighed and balanced.
