Until recently his first name was known as Charles and no further biographical details were known. It is clear that Dutot supported the system of John Law, and his book includes a refutation of Melon's Essai politique sur le commerce' of 1734, yet it is according to A.Thiers 'undoubtly the most profound book on Law's system and the causes of its fall'.
