Jean-Baptiste Say was a French economist and businessman who had liberal views and argued in favor of competition, free trade, and lifting restraints on business. He is best known for Say's law—also known as the law of markets—which claims that the production of a product creates demand for another product by providing something of value which can be exchanged for that other product. So, production is source of demand. He was one of the first economists to study entrepreneurship and saw entrepreneurs as organizers and leaders of the economy.
