Written in 1817, this famous treatise lays the groundwork for the principles of the market economy. It established the guiding ideas behind the economic concepts of diminishing returns and economic rent. As a leading master of economic principles of his time, Ricardo developed the theories now identified as distribution theory and international trade theory, or comparative advantage.
