Barton, John


Born June 11, 1789, in London; died Mar. 10, 1852, in Chichester. English economist. One of the exponents of classical bourgeois political economy.

In his work The Circumstances Which Influence the Condition of the Labouring Classes of Society (1817), Barton in effect separates variable capital from the remaining portion of capital, but he calls it circulating capital. He argued against J. B. Say’s assertion of the automatic self-development of markets. Barton also studied movement in wages and population growth under conditions of developed capitalism.
