I have decided to try my hand at another mini-tutorial, this time devoted to David Ricardo's great classic work, The Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817, forty-one years after Adam Smith's Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, and just a half century before the publication of Karl Marx's Das Kapital.
Ricardo's Principles is available on-line, if anyone would like to read parts of it while I am posting my mini-tutorial. It is my impression that several graduate students in Economics have been attracted to this site lately by my snarky comments about Greg Minkiw. Perhaps they, and my faithful readers, will find the Ricardo mini-tutorial interesting.
If all goes well, I shall launch the mini-tutorial tomorrow.
