“The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists”.
Joan Robinson (1973)
Augusto Graziani passed away in Naples on January 6, 2014. Graziani was a giant of the Italian economic thought of the Twentieth century. His work is an example of analytical soundness, narrative sensibility, formal elegance, and historical-social determination. His analysis of the inner physiology of market economies, regarded as monetary economies of capitalist reproduction, is still unsurpassed. This (Italian) article is the small tribute of a missed pupil.
