Whewell's views on scientific methodology, moral philosophy, and educational doctrine influenced several generations of prominent mathematical economists, including Edward Rogers, Col. T. Perronet Thompson, John Edward Tozer, Sir John William Lubbock, and Dionysius Lardner. Along with Richard Jones, Whewell was instrumental in developing an inductive political economy based upon careful historical and statistical research. This study of Whewell's contributions to mathematical economics is important reading for students and scholars of economics and political economy.... focuses on the last three mathematical economics papers that Whewell read before the Cambridge Philosophical Society.1 ... In addition to his examination of Ricardoa#39;s analysis of tax incidence, he treated Ricardoa#39;s economic growth model anbsp;...
