Liberalism/Adam Smith: Smith pro Liberalism: the liberal order of competition was considered to be Smith's natural and best order. For the "invisible hand" of competition would ensure that the overall interest is simultaneously promoted in the pursuit of individual interests. The state had to limit itself to fulfilling a few tasks (such as external defence and ensuring legal certainty in the national territory).
Other representatives of liberalism in economics: Jean Baptiste-Say (1767-1832) and David Ricardo (1772-1823). Say became known above all by "Say's Law" that was named after him. (1)
