William Stanley Jevons
William Stanley Jevons (1835 â€“ 1882) was a British economist. He was particularly known for discovering the marginal utility approach in price theory, at the same time as LÃ©on Walras and Carl Menger.
He is also notable for popularizing the Essai, a largely unnoticed magnum opus of Richard Cantillon, which Jevons declared to be, "more emphatically than any other single work, the Cradle of Political Economy".
