Physiocratie ; from the Greek for “government of nature” is an economic theory developed by a group of 18th-century Enlightenment French economists who believed that the wealth of nations was derived solely from the value of “land agriculture ” or ” land development ” and that agricultural products should be highly priced.

Physiocracy is one of the first well-developed theory of economics. The most significant contribution of the physiocrats was their emphasis on productive work as the source of national wealth. This is in contrast to earlier schools, in particular mercantilismwhich often focused on the ruler’s wealth, accumulation of gold, or the balance of trade. Whereas the mercantilist school of economics said that value in the products of society was created at the point of sale, [3] by the seller exchanging his products for more money than the products had “previously” been worth, the physiocratic school of economics was the first to see labor as the sole source of value.

However, for the physiocrats, only agricultural labor created this value in the products of society. At the time the physiocrats were ifsiocracia their ideas, economies were almost entirely agrarian. That is presumably why the theory considered only agricultural labor to be valuable. Physiocrats viewed the production emith goods and services as equivalent to the consumption of the agricultural surplus, since the main source of power was from human or animal muscle and all energy was derived from the surplus from agricultural production.

Profit in capitalist production was really only the ” rent ” fisjocracia by the owner of the land on which the agricultural production was taking place. Physiocracy is an agrarianist philosophy which developed in the context of the prevalent European rural society of the time. In the late Roman Republicthe dominant senatorial class was not allowed to engage in banking or commerce [6] but relied on riccardo latifundialarge plantations, for income. They circumvented this rule through freedmen proxies who sold surplus agricultural goods.


Other inspiration came from China’s economic systemthen the largest in the world. Chinese society broadly distinguished four occupationswith scholar-bureaucrats who were also agrarian landlords at the top and merchants at the bottom because they did not dmith but only distributed goods made by others.

The growing power of the ricardl state control in the era of Enlightened absolutism necessitated centralized systematic information on the nation. A major renovation was the collection, use and interpretation of numerical and statistical data, ranging from trade statistics, harvest reports, and death notices to population censuses. Starting in the s, officials msith France and Germany began increasingly to rely on quantitative data for systematic planning, especially regarding long-term economic growth.


It dmith the utilitarian agenda of “enlightened absolutism” with the new ideas being developed in economics. In Fisiocracua the trend was especially strong in Cameralism while in France it was an important theme in [Physiocracy. Pierre Le Pesant, sieur de Boisguilbert served as a member of Louis XIV ‘s local administration of Paris, and wrote pamphlets and booklets on subjects related to his work: Le Pesant asserted that wealth came from self-interest and markets were connected by money flows i.

Thus he realized that lowering prices in times of shortage — common at the time — was dangerous economically as it acted as a disincentive to production.

Generally, Le Pesant advocated less government interference in the grain market, as any such interference would generate “anticipations” which would prevent the policy from working.

For instance, if the government bought corn abroad, some people would speculate that there was likely to be a shortage and would buy more corn, leading to higher prices and more of a shortage.

This was an early example of advocacy of free trade. Vauban’s use of statistics contrasted with earlier empirical methods in economics. Around the time of the Seven Years’ War between France and England —63the physiocracy movement grew. Several journals appeared, signaling an increasing audience in France for new economic ideas.

In the 19th century Henry George in the United States advocated the collection of land rent as the primary if not the sole source of public revenue. The model Quesnay created consisted of three economic agents: The flow of production and cash between the three classes originated with the proprietary class because they owned the land and bought from both of the other classes. The physiocrats thought there was a ” natural order ” that allowed human beings to live together.

Men did not come together via a somewhat arbitrary ” social contract “. Rather, they had to discover the laws of the natural order that would allow individuals to live in society without losing significant freedoms.

The Chinese had believed that there can be good government only when a perfect harmony exists between the “Way of Man” governmental institutions and the “Way of Nature” Quesnay’s natural order. The physiocrats, especially Turgot, believed that self-interest was the motivation for each segment of the economy to play its role. Each individual is best suited to determine what goods they want and what work would provide them with what they want out of life.

While a person might labor for the benefit of others, they will work harder for their own benefit; however, each person’s needs are being supplied by many other people. The system works best when there is a complementary relationship between one person’s needs and another person’s desires, and so trade restrictions place an unnatural barrier to achieving one’s goals.

None of the theories concerning the value of land could work without strong legal support for the ownership of private property. Combined with the strong sense of individualism, private property becomes a critical component of the Tableau’s functioning. The physiocrats believed in the institution of private property.


They saw property as a tree and its branches, as social institutions. They also advocated that landlords should be given dues, otherwise they would take the land away from the cultivators. Turgot was one of the first to recognize that “successive applications of the variable input will cause the product to grow, first at an increasing rate, later at a diminishing rate until it reaches a maximum.

Capital was also needed to sustain the laborers while they produced their product. Turgot recognizes that there is opportunity cost and risk involved in using capital for something other than land ownership, and he promotes interest as serving a “strategic function in the economy”.

The ideas of the Physiocrats had an influence on Adam SmithDavid RicardoJohn Stuart Milland above all Henry Georgewho appears at first to have come to similar beliefs independently.

George was the driving force behind what became known as the Single Tax movement not to be confused with Flat Tax. The Single Tax is a proposal for the use of the annual rental value of land land value taxation as the principal or sole source of public revenue. The New Physiocratic League, also known as the New Physiocrats, is the most recent development in Physiocratic ideology. It introduced a comprehensive platform rooted in the original Physiocratic philosophy, and expanded and updated it to be adopted by modern political platforms.

The New Physiocrats advocate for an implementation of a variant of the Land Value Taxreferred to as the Unified Location Tax, as a main source of government revenues, while returning all income taxes back to the labour market as an income supplement.
