Przedmiot ekonomii politycznej w ujęciu polskich ekonomistów liberalnych okresu międzywojennego
The Subject of the Political Economy as Approached by the Polish Economists of the Inter-War Period
Languages of publication
The conceptions of the Polish liberal economists are quite differentiated - starting with the orthodox liberalism of Krzyżanowski and Heydel, through the moderate liberalism of Taylor and Zawadzki, to the distinctly neoliberal concept of the social liberalism of Zweig. This differentiation is already reflected in their approach to the political economy subject. Krzyżanowski and Heydel treat the economy as a science dealing with the principle of efficient management, and in line with the trend prevailing in the burgeois economy they absolutize the technical side of production and fetishize the economic relatione. Taylor criticizes a view that the scope of the political economy is determined by the principle of efficient management, and making reference to Smith he claims, that the economy is a science dealing with the social income. Zweig, on the other hand, shares a view being similar to the Marxist approach when stressing the social character of the economy and calling it even the economic sociology.
