They emphasized human contractthrough the practical nature of leadership andpolicy. In contrast to these, Plato in hisRepublic presented a blueprint for aneconomy where cities are founded onkey principles of specialization anddivision of labor that creates mutualinterdependence and further leads toreciprocal exchange.

This process of accumulation of wealth became thepreoccupation of the mercantilists. They emphasized the utilizationof all available lands for agriculture, mining, or manufacturing. Theystressed that all raw materials should be used for domesticproduction because finished products have higher price than rawmaterials. Their ultimate goal is to accumulate silver and gold byselling their finished products and keeping domestic money in localcirculation.
