Galiani, Ferdinando

 

Born Dec. 2, 1728, in Chieti. died Sept. 30, 1787, in Naples. Italian bourgeois economist and philosopher, statesman, and abbot. One of the forerunners of the Austrian school.

Galiani asserted that the value of a commodity is determined by its utility. However, his concept of value is contradictory: he tried to deduce the source of a commodity’s value from its utility and from the expenditure of labor that went into its production. Galiani considered questions of monetary theory and international trade. He criticized the physiocratic theory and the policy of free trade.

The historical riddle is what might be called the great dilemma of the new institutional economic history: much of the literature in economic history that is trying to explain differences in economic performance and living standards, both by economists and historians, has accepted in one way or another Douglass North's call for the integration of institutions into our narrative of economic growth (Acemoglu and Robinson 2012; Sened and Galiani 2014).
