The English Corn Law returns, the Corn Laws and the birth of political economy

An overview of the historical context of the trade laws of the 18th and 19th centuries, and what lessons it has for today.

The Corn Returns, agricultural data from the 18th and 19th centuries, represent a key resource for historians trying to understand the emergence of modern agricultural markets and the effects of protective tariffs. his lecture explores how the Corn Returns furnished important support for the competing claims of 18th century moral philosophers and 19th century political economists, playing a key role in debates about the repeal of the Corn Laws.
