Political Economy (1848) by John Stuart Mill was arguably the most
important economics or political economy textbook of the mid nineteenth

in a system of trade based on comparative advantage, the work also
discussed normative issues such as ideal systems of political economy,
critiquing proposed systems such as communism and socialism.
