Brief history of economic thought

As the world became a larger place, global expansion and international trade brought people together. The flow of money around the world has been of top interest to governments and international businessmen. Centuries of theorizing about the movements of money has become the richly-studied field of economics, with numerous competing theories vying to establish a truth about exchanges between peoples based on valuable goods and services.
