[Edited by R.H.I., i.e. Sir R.H. Inglis.]. Author: Henry THORNTON, M.P.; Robert Harry Inglis, Sir Publisher: London : J. Hatchard, 1835. viii, 220 pages ; 8vo Henry Thornton (10 March 1760 - 16 January 1815) was an English economist, banker, philanthropist and parliamentarian. A successful merchant banker, as a monetary theorist Thornton has been described as the father of the modern central bank. An opponent of the real bills doctrine, he was a defender of the bullionist position and a significant figure in monetary theory, his process of monetary expansion anticipating Knut Wicksell's theory of the Cumulative process. His work on 19th century monetary theory has won praise from present-day economists for his forward-thinking ideas, including Friedrich Hayek, who wrote an introduction to his 'An Enquiry into the Nature and Effects of the Paper Credit of Great Britain', and John Maynard Keynes alike.
