Francis Horner and the Bullion debates

Denis, A. (2015). Francis Horner and the Bullion debates. Paper presented at the UK HET conference/THETS conference 2015, 2-4 Sep 2012, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.


Despite O'Brien (1995: 228) opinion to the contrary, a search of JSTOR suggests that Horner's contributions to monetary theory have been largely neglected. Fetter (1959) is a notable exception.
Horner is largely known as a disseminator of the views of Henry Thornton. The purpose of this paper is to examine the understanding of money and finance expressed in Horner's contributions to the Bullion Debates of the turn of the nineteenth century.
