Abstract [en]

Physiocracy ideas seems to have become popular among the highest circle of noblemen and politicians in the end of the 1760s. It is well known that the crown prince, the later Gustav III, was well acquainted with the writings of the Physiocratic school. As a more restricted economic doctrine, however, the impact of Physiocracy was only slight. It is mainly connected with the translating efforts of one single man who at the same time was an astute reformer, a leading politician: baron Carl Gustaf Scheffer (1715-86). Obviously Scheffer's intention was not mainly to present the Physiocratic gospel per se as a contribution to a scholarly debate on theoretical principles. To a much higher degree was it intended to underpin the need for political and financial reforms such as the ones proposed by the Paris society, including the liberalization of the corn trade.
