The Political Economy of Joseph Conrad
By Robert M. Whaples
Like Jane Austens works, Conrads novels demonstrate that classical liberal arrangements and sensibilities allowed English society to flourish. Although he certainly does not see the England of his time as Utopia, Conrad clearly viewed it as a force for good in a globalizing world and a model to be emulated elsewhere, although he carefully demonstrated why it could often be difficult for other societies to adapt English arrangements.
