Dealer Notes
John Ramsay McCulloch (1789-1864) was arguably the first professional economist and had an early association with David Ricardo and his circle; after Ricardo’s death, he gave influential memorial lectures in London, which helped to establish his reputation. He was the first Professor of Political Economy at the University of London, 1828-37, but his main career was that of Comptroller of the Stationery Office from 1838. He continued to publish on economics, including three statistical reference books and a bibliography of the literature. His most popular title, The Principles of Political Economy, first published in 1825, was expanded for this second edition (of five issued).
