An American Jewish woman, Tamar Davis Larsen, who had been married to a non-Jewish Norwegian, received her PhD in May 2009. It was only his body that was there in that chair. The ear liest economic school of thought was French, and its practitioners were called Physiocrats .� They formed the first and so-far only economic school that rooted economic activity and wealth in energy terms.� Physiocrats worked before the science of energy was invented, but they understood that land was the basis of wealth, or more specifically, the crops, timber, metals, and other resources that could be wrested from them via labor (AKA " work ").� Physiocrats were opportunists who developed economic theories that they planned to profit from, in order to climb into the aristocracy. [783] � The first English economist of what later became the classical school of economics was arguably William Petty who, like his successors, derived theories that he planned to benefit from.� They either tried to join the rising rich classes themselves or performed ideological services on their behalf to curry favor.� There was nothing of the disinterested scientist in their work, but they became ideological warriors of the rising capitalist class.� It became Karl Marx�s task to name that rising class; he called them the bourgeoisie .� Preceding the nominal classical economists was James Steaurt, who is called a mercantilist philosopher today, but he was really one of the most honest classical economists in describing the early forces of capitalism, of forcing peasants off the land and enslaving them to market forces. [784] Adam S mith�s The Wealth of Nations, published in 1776, is widely considered the first work of classical economics.� Smith was more of a court historian than scientist, and in a trend highly germane to this essay�s thrust, he and his successors, such as Thomas Malthus, David Ricardo, and John Stuart Mill, provided ideological service to capitalists by making their crimes and even themselves invisible. �The dispossession of English and Scottish peasantry by Game Laws and Enclosure is virtually nowhere to be found in the work of classical economists, and was never identified as the primary vehicle by which early capitalists amassed their fortunes.� The huge accumulations of wealth by capitalists were only obtained by �efficiency� and clever organization of the workforces, according to the public writings of classical economists.� The elites of pristine civilizations prevailed via ruthlessness and violence and, after their control was established, they skimmed the economic cream of the civilizations that they controlled.� Capitalists did the same thing, becoming elites in a pristine system, and once they controlled the economic system�s foundation (the land that provided food, coal, running water for mills, and wood), they then let the �market� dominate, which might appear �free� to the casual observer.� As dispossessed peasants began their virtual enslavement in the � satanic mills � of William Blake�s poetry, including the novel institution of child labor, writers who opposed such evils, such as Thomas Spence, were silenced and imprisoned. [785] � Classical economists portrayed greedy and violent acts as a noble pursuit of innovation and efficiency that somehow served the common good.� To call it a conspiracy might be too dramatic, but it was essentially no different from the deification and heroification of early elites. [786] � Only after the British violently acquired control of markets did it call for �free trade.�� It was a fantasy that served the capital class, which provided the illusion of freedom far more than its substance.� In private correspondence, classical economists could be quite frank about the real game being played: actual free markets were a threat to capitalist interests.� The B ritish invaded China under the principles of �free trade,� which was the right to addict China to opium grown by British-enslaved peoples in India.� In moments of candor, British statesmen could also be startlingly honest about the true nature of their success, but such moments could be censored.� Nehru noted that the longer that the British controlled an Indian province, the poorer it became.� There has never been a free market in world history, or if there was, it was not for long.� The closest thing may have been markets that arose in pristine states, but what became the first elites quickly conquered and exploited them.� In new, arguably �pristine� industries that were not seen as immediate threats to established interests, such as oil and personal computers, there was initially something resembling an open market, but in those two instances, organizations founded by John Rockefeller and Bill Gates quickly conquered and controlled them, and they officially became the richest people on Earth and later became � philanthropists .�� Ben Franklin was the capitalist epitome in North America�s British colonies, but his fortune was significantly amassed by running ads to capture runaway slaves and by wiping out competitors .� When the Constitutional Convention began its power play, the local newspaper reporting on the illegal proceedings was purchased and silenced by the Founding Fathers, in an early instance of capitalist censorship of the �free press.� �Private �free market� censorship has always been the preferred method of capitalists, not governmental intervention, such as the way that George Orwell�s� work was censored.

As the Indus flooded, cities were rebuilt on top of each other. But given the overall trend toward increasing globalization and the fact that peoples are no longer isolated from each other but increasingly intermarry and thereby share their gene pools, "races" that may have once been distinguishable are less so today.
