Quesnay, Francois (1694-1774), a French physician, born at Merey, was the chief of the school of political economists called the Physiocrats: Besides important articles in the Encyclopedie, his doctrines were set forth in Tableaux Economiques (1758), copies of which are very rare, even if they exist, and in other works, such as Maximes Generales du Gouvernement Economique d'un Royaume Agricole, which are accessible.
