Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ferdinando Galiani (2 December 1728, Chieti - 30 October 1787) was an Italian economist, a leading Italian figure of the Enlightenment. Friedrich Nietzsche called him the "most fastidious and refined intelligence" of the eighteenth century. He was born at Chieti, and carefully educated by his uncle, Monsignor C. Galiani, at Naples and Rome with a view to entering the church. Galiani showed early promise as an economist, and even more as a wit. By the age of twenty-two, after he took orders, he had produced two works by which his name became widely known far beyond the bounds of his own Naples. The one, his Trattato della moneta, a disquisition on coinage in which he shows himself a strong supporter of mercantilism, deals with many aspects of the question of exchange, but always with a special reference to the state of confusion then presented by the whole monetary system of the Neapolitan government.show more
