This volume is devoted to documenting the development of economic thinking across the world and in all historical eras, partitioned on nation-state/geographical lines. If Ptolemy’s Cosmographia was an early attempt to delineate the world’s physical geography, then this Cosmoconomy (or Economographia) is a much more modest attempt to map the global contour-lines of economic ideas. As this is a very expansive focus, the volume cannot claim to provide an exhaustive account of the topic, or even an entirely comprehensive one: not every nation-state that exists today (or has existed in the past) is covered.
