Abstract:

Pt. I. Introduction. 1. The economics of division of labor from Xenophon to Hayek (1945) : a review of selected literature / Guang-Zhen Sun -- pt. II. Nothing new under the sun? Pieces up to Adam Smith. 2. From Cyropaedia and Oeconomicus / Xenophon. 3. From The Republic / Plato. 4. From Politico / Aristotle. 5. From The Muqaddimah / Ibn Khaldũn. 6. From political arithmetic and another essay on political arithmetic : concerning the growth of the city of London / William Petty. 7. From considerations upon the East-India trade / Henry Martyn ("the anonymous"). 8. From The Fable of the Bees / Bernard Mandeville. 9. From "Art" in Encyclopedie / Diderot and d'Alembert. 10. From A System of Moral Philosophy / Francis Hutcheson. 11. From An Essay on the History of Civil Society / Adam Ferguson. 12. From Reflections on the Formation and Distribution of Riches / Anne Robert Jacques Turgot. 13. From An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations / Adam Smith -- pt. III. Classical political economy. 14. From The Principle of Political Economy and Taxation / David Ricardo. 15. From The Economy of Machinery and Manufactures / Charles Babbage. 16. From The Philosophy of Manufactures / Andrew Ure. 17. From A Commentary on An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations / Edward Gibbon Wakefield. 18. From Principles of Political Economy / John Stuart Mill. 19. From Capital / Karl Marx. 20. From Science of Wealth / Amasa Walker -- pt. IV. Marshallian economics. 21. From Principles of Economics / Alfred Marshall. 22. The laws of returns under competitive conditions / Piero Sraffa. 23. Increasing returns and economic progress / Allyn Young -- pt. V. The Austrian insights. 25. On the origin of money / Carl Menger. 26. The use of knowledge in society / Friedrich A. Hayek

Study of the progressive division of labor is a burgeoning industry in economics in recent years. Classical authors, dating back as early as 500 BC, have made insightful analyses on the determinants and implications of the division of labor. Unfortunately these writings are rather scattered and not readily accessible. This important book aims to fill this void, serving as a valuable source of reference for scholars interested in the economics of specialization. The volume begins with the precursors of political economy including the ancient Greeks, medieval Islamic scholastics and mercantilists, continues with the classical political economists and the neoclassicists, and concludes with the Austrian economists such as Hayek in the 1940s. It covers major themes and perspectives about the division of labor that have ever emerged in the discipline of the economic science, including the economics of increasing returns to specialization, the twin ideas of division of labor and the extent of the market, the theory of the spontaneous market order, coordination in the factory system and large scale manufactures, knowledge and the division of mental labor, integration of analyses of specialization into the neoclassical framework, etc
