    Classical economics is widely regarded as the first modern school of economic thought. Its major developers include Adam Smith, Jean-Baptiste Say, David Ricardo, Thomas Malthus and John Stuart Mill.

    Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations in 1776 is usually considered to mark the beginning of classical economics. The school was active into the mid 19th century and was followed by neoclassical economics in Britain beginning around 1870, or, in Marx's definition by "vulgar political economy" from the 1830s. The definition of classical economics is debated, particularly the period 1830ā€“70 and the connection to neoclassical economics. The term "classical economics" was coined by Karl Marx to refer to Ricardian economics ā€“ the economics of David Ricardo and James Mill and their predecessors ā€“ but usage was subsequently extended to include the followers of Ricardo.[1]
