Summary:
Ryner argues for a generative relationship between economic thought and dramatic form in early modern English drama by examining representations of economic exchange in plays and mercantile treatises written in the early decades of the seventeenth century when economic thinkers associated with 'mercantilism' were re-examining how they conceptualised and depicted commerce as a system.
