'Jacques Turgot', (1933). Creator: Unknown

'Jacques Turgot', (1933). Portrait of French statesman and economist Anne-Robert-Jacques Turgot, baron de l'Aulne (1727-1781). Turgot was an advocate of free trade and laissez-faire principles in economics. As comptroller-general of finances (1774-1776), he advocated radical reforms to the French economy and taxation system. His policies, particularly edicts abolishing guilds and levying taxation on all, including the nobility, made Turgot many enemies, and Louis XVI was persuaded to demand his resignation. Turgot's edicts were repealed, but his conviction that the only alternative to radical reform was revolution proved to be correct in 1789. From "Gestalten Der Weltgeschichte", a book of cigarette-card portrait miniatures of figures in world history from the last four hundred years. [Germany, 1933]

John Law, Scottish economist, late 17th-early 18th century (c1880). Artist: Whymper

John Law, Scottish economist, late 17th-early 18th century (c1880). A Scottish economist, gambler, banker, murderer, royal advisor, exile, rake and adventurer, Law (1671-1729) fled to France after killing a man in a duel. Gaining the favour of the Regent of France, the Duc d'Orleans, he became influential in French political and economic circles. He is best known as the founder of the Mississippi Scheme (1717-1720) to develop colonies in the Mississippi valley, which gained him great popularity in France and made him a paper millionaire. The scheme was largely based on speculation rather than actual economic growth however, and a crisis in confidence caused the 'Mississippi Bubble' to burst, forcing Law to leave France, dying in poverty in Venice. A print from Cassell's History of the United States, by Edmund Ollier, Volume I, Cassell Petter and Galpin, London, c1880.
