Bailey, Samuel


Born 1791 in Sheffield; died Jan. 18, 1870. British economist, representative of vulgar political economy. In 1831 he founded and became the chairman of the Sheffield Banking Company. He was the author of numerous works on a wide range of economic, philosophical, and political problems. In arguing against the teaching of D. Ricardo, he denied the latter’s labor theory of value. At the same time Bailey revealed, as Marx pointed out, some contradictions in Ricardo’s economic views and was the first to offer a correct definition of the measure of value as a function of money. Marx criticized Bailey for a superficial approach to economic phenomena and for vulgarization of the ideas of classical bourgeois political economy.
