Reference work entry


Italian economist and politician, Pantaleoni was born in Frascati (Papal States) on 2 July 1857 and died in Milan on 2 October 1924. His career as a university teacher in economics was rather stormy on account of his impatient rejection of any attempt to interfere with his teaching and the free expression of his thought. Elected in 1900 as a radical to the Italian Parliament, he resigned shortly afterwards.
