Jean Baptiste Say foi um economista francês, formulador da chamada a Lei de Say. Nasceu em uma família de mercadores de tecidos, fortemente influenciada pelas ideias iluministas.

Após a Revolução Francesa chegou a exercer a ocupação de jornalista em periódicos liberais franceses, onde aproximou-se das ideias de Adam Smith e do estudo da ciência econômica, à qual passou a se dedicar, ao mesmo tempo em que administrava uma indústria têxtil.

Citações Jean-Baptiste Say

„A system of swindling can never be long lived, and must infallibly in the end produce much more loss than profit.“

— Jean-Baptiste Say
Context: And let no government imagine, that, to strip them of the power of defrauding their subjects, is to deprive them of a valuable privilege. A system of swindling can never be long lived, and must infallibly in the end produce much more loss than profit. Chapter XXI, Section V, p. 238

„Which leads us to a conclusion that may at first appear paradoxical, namely, that it is production which opens a demand for products.“

— Jean-Baptiste Say
Context: A man who applies his labour to the investing of objects with value by the creation of utility of some sort, can not expect such a value to be appreciated and paid for, unless where other men have the means of purchasing it. Now, of what do these means consist? Of other values of other products, likewise the fruits of industry, capital, and land. Which leads us to a conclusion that may at first appear paradoxical, namely, that it is production which opens a demand for products. Chapter XV, p. 133 (See also: Say's Law)
