In , he was appointed to the standing commission on trade alongside Thomas Mun. During the period between Misselden was embroiled in a public debate with Gerard De Malynes see below about the causes of the outflow of metal in England. While Malynes argued that the outflow of bullion was caused by speculative banking and a low domestic exchange rate, Misselden argued that the shortage was caused by an unfavorable balance of trade.

Misselden, like Mun, argued that England needed to export more than it imported, but unlike Mun, he was skeptical of the fact that the East India Company was essentially being granted a monopoly on trade. Misselden, before going to work for the East India Company, wrote in defense of a more oligopolistic trade industry and you can find this defense in his famous tract Free Trade, or the Means to Make Trade Flourish A year later, in The Circle of Commerce, or the Balance of Trade… , he reverses this particular position and writes in favor of the actions of the company.

He was Commissioner of Trade in the Low countries for a period of time and also served in the government with the mint and as a financial adviser. Malynes is perhaps best known for holding the opposing view to men like Thomas Mun and Edward Misselden when it came to the causes of the specie shortage in England. Malynes was a strong advocate for reinstating strict controls over foreign exchange and believed that the shortage of precious metals in England had been caused by an unfavorable exchange rate and the speculative and profit-seeking behavior of bankers.

In a Treatise of the Canker… Malynes presents a three part argument. This imbalance can be a result of exporting too much bullion, exporting goods at insufficient prices, or by importing goods at too high of a price. Prices in foreign countries had gone up faster than domestic prices in England, Maylnes argued, and therefore England was buying overpriced foreign goods and selling their goods to cheaply.

Meanwhile, foreign commodities would become relatively more expensive. Despite attributing this entire mechanism to the speculation of bankers, Malynes seemed to have a better understanding of the flow of money and its affect on prices than any of his contemporaries. This can be seen in his most famous quote: Plentie of money maketh generally things deare, and scarcitie of money maketh likewise generally things good cheape. Whereas things particularly are also deare or good cheape according to plentie or scarcitie of the things themselves or the use of them Share this:.
