Who is Raymond de Roover?
Raymond de Roover: Raymond Adrien de Roover, was a noted economic historian of medieval Europe, whose scholarship explained why Scholastic economic thought is best understood as a precursor of, and wholly compatible with, Classical economic thought. In his day, many economists such as R.H. Tawney taught that Karl Marx was the last of, and culmination of, the Scholastic economists. De Roover taught at Harvard University, University of Chicago, Boston College, and Brooklyn College in The City University of New York, in addition to various European universities, and was also a Guggenheim Fellow in 1949.
