Nicolas Francois CANARD, French economist.

Background

CANARD, Nicolas Francois was born in 1750 in France.

Career

Canard’s Principes., whilst otherwise unremarkable, had the distinction of being recognised by the French Academy, which failed to notice Cournot and Walras. The book is sometimes claimed to be an early example of mathematical economics, but its use of mathematics is in fact confined to some algebraic formulas.
