On one way the paragraph makes sense and the second way the paragraph does not. Mostly the debate depended on the definition of value (and its connection to long period market period prices) because there were different definitions of the term. According to Bentham and Dugald Stewart, utility was used as “a portmanteau term to cover all the wants and desires” (7). Ricardo states that “utility was an absolutely essential precondition, but could not be a measure of value in exchange” (8), which were determined either by the scarcity or by the quantity of labor required to obtain commodities. The second way the paragraph read made it sound incoherent because utility cannot be the measure of value.
Heckscher-Ohlin Theory Comparative advantage ascends from differences in national factor endowments, such as land, labour, or capital, as opposite to Ricardo’s theory which stresses productivity. This theory suggest that the country should focus on exporting products using its scarce resources and brings across a free trade principle where goods will be moving freely without any trade barriers implying that this would make flow of resources in and out more demand and more supply will increase the country’s economy(Eli Heckscher 1919 &Bertil
By having two different styles of government, Friedman thought the government would infringe on people’s individual rights. An author from a previous reading that would agree with Friedman, would be Thomas Jefferson. Friedman believed that capitalistic economies are the reason why society is freer than any other time in history. This is similar to Jefferson due to his asking for departure form Great Britain. By leaving Great Britain, the Colonies were not under British rule any longer.

John Stuart Mill (1801-1856) was the British philosopher, political theorist and economist whose works have influenced the social and political context significantly. He has been one of the prominent thinkers on liberal philosophy and is still regarded as a distinguished identity within the liberal school of thought. His ideas have given a new dimension to the already established by his predecessors like Jeremy Bentham’s utilitarianism. His prominent works include, On Liberty, Representative Government, Principles of Political Economy, A System of Logic, Utilitarianism, Three essays on Religion, The Subjection of Women and his Autobiography.

The feudal system was the old system. Buyers and sellers (private business owners) satisfy their own interests by voluntarily agreeing to exchange money for a product. Business owners compete in a free market to make the best product or service at a price that will attract the most buyers. The successful businesses grow larger and employ more workers, thereby growing the economy. Proponents of the free market believe that this system encourages innovation, high quality goods, and increases the wealth of countries.
Capitalism has to do with competition and each private owner controls the selling, they want to gain a profit, and government can’t interfere. The US is a mixed economy because government and privately owned businesses are involved equally instead of one more than the other. What Adam Smith meant by “the invisible hand” of laissez-faire economy is that free markets and capitalism are guided by competition. Free market ensures the well being of society because then there are multiple ways to create value for stakeholders. This is important because when their needs are met, businesses tend to be successful.
Economic liberalism provided the intellectual basis for the capitalistic way of running the economy. The founder of economic liberalism was Adam Smith (1723-1790), a professor of logic and moral philosophy at Glasgow University in Scotland. His most important works are: Theory of moral sentiments, London 1759; and An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations, London 1776. From 1778 until his death, Adam Smith was a member of the supreme Scottish custom authority. Today this economic liberalism is often called Palaeoliberalism – old liberalism, according to the Greek expression palaeo, which means 'old ' – in contrast to the new, the Neoliberalism of our time.
