This week’s post is a link to a video which has an introduction to the Late Scholastics and their contributions to economics:
The World’s First Economists: The School of Salamanca
How did economics begin? In this video, you’ll learn about the School of Salamanca, a group of priests in 16th-century Spain who discovered economics while helping merchants make ethical business choices. The members of the School, sometimes known as the Late Scholastics, built upon the tradition of St. Thomas Aquinas and urge us think more deeply about the connection between human dignity, law, and economics today. This video was produced as part of a series on economics, education, and integral human development (IHD Shorts) in partnership with Global Catholic Education, CREDO, and NCEA.
