D avid Ricardo was one of those rare people who achieved both tremendous success and lasting fame. After his family disinherited him for marrying outside his Jewish faith, Ricardo made a fortune as a stockbroker and loan broker. He wrote his first economics article at age thirty-seven and then spent the following fourteen years—his last ones—as a professional economist. In short, Ricardo was an early believer in the quantity theory of money, or what is known today as monetarism. In his Essay on the Influence of a Low Price of Corn on the Profits of Stock , Ricardo articulated what came to be known as the law of diminishing marginal returns.

David Ricardo 18 April — 11 September was a British political economist , one of the most influential of the classical economists along with Thomas Malthus , Adam Smith and James Mill. Born in London, England, Ricardo was the third of 17 children of a Sephardic Jewish family of Portuguese origin who had recently relocated from the Dutch Republic. At age 21, Ricardo eloped with a Quaker , Priscilla Anne Wilkinson, and, against his father's wishes, converted to the Unitarian faith. Following this estrangement he went into business for himself with the support of Lubbocks and Forster, an eminent banking house. He made the bulk of his fortune as a result of speculation on the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo. The Sunday Times reported in Ricardo's obituary, published on 14 September , that during the Battle of Waterloo Ricardo "netted upwards of a million sterling", a huge sum at the time. He immediately retired, his position on the floor no longer tenable, and subsequently purchased Gatcombe Park , an estate in Gloucestershire , now owned by Princess Anne, the Princess Royal and retired to the country.
