This is Mill’s first work on economics. It foreshadows his Political Economy which was the standard Anglo-American Economics textbook of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    It is amazing that this piece was written so long ago. I think some of the insights are still prudent today. First, it is important to note that this piece is one of many that attempt to link politics and economics together. The undercurrent structure of economic policy was far to large of a driver of political bodies to be ignored. In this regard, he is somewhat brilliant for separating market participants into those that are involved in the production of goods and those that involved in the mon It is amazing that this piece was written so long ago. I think some of the insights are still prudent today. First, it is important to note that this piece is one of many that attempt to link politics and economics together. The undercurrent structure of economic policy was far to large of a driver of political bodies to be ignored. In this regard, he is somewhat brilliant for separating market participants into those that are involved in the production of goods and those that involved in the money side or the allocation of capital. In this regard, he may be a step ahead of those that ONLY his contemporaries that focused on the production/labor value side of life. I found Mill's description of market forces as inefficient to be as true as ever in light of recent events. He does a fluid job of explaining this. I also found his idea of the nature of lending to be fantastically insightful. He basically provides a basic discourse on what types of interest rates will exist and why, without trying to force some theory of inflation. In other words, it's lending rates as a function of supply and demand with a risk premium attached to it. This is far better than the monetarists who link every single thing to inflation. His description of the special case of the banker who prints money is a tell-tale sign of what is going on today with the US banking system. Still, I can't image that Mills would have suspected the economic systems would have evolved to what they are today.
