A discourse of trade, from England unto the East-Indies : Answering to diuerse objections which are usually made against the game


A discourse of trade
1621. Mun, Thomas?
Author Thomas Mun was a director of The East India Company. To refute clearly the anti-East India trade theory based on the loss of the British state treasure by export of gold and silver, and other various reasons, he wrote this book. On the basis of “trade balance theory”, he stated very skillfully the process that the temporary export of gold and silver resulted in more inflow of precious metals than outflow abroad.
