I created this page because reading classics in political economy is essential because they provide a historical context and understanding of economic theories and their evolution over time. They also offer insight into the development of economic thought and the ways in which it has influenced society and public policy. Back then, people had more time to think of issues more clearly rather than be distracted by endless amounts of information today.
By reading and enjoying the works of past economists, one can gain a deeper understanding of the complexities of economics and appreciate the challenges and limitations that have shaped its development. Additionally, classics often offer timeless insights and lessons that remain relevant today and can inform contemporary discussions on economic issues. It also makes you a more well-rounded person and lives above the day-to-day pettiness. Live in the realm of ideas, and you will have a happier life.
