Reports that standard accounts of the life of Heinrich von Stackelberg, a brilliant theoretical economist, are full of errors and lacunae. In addition, claims that many writers in the English language literature have seriously misjudged his economics because they make the unwarranted assumption that there must be a close relationship between a person’s scientific work in economics and his politics ‐ he was a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Fills some of the gaps in the accounts of his life, and presents evidence about his attitude towards Jews and that he may also have been part of the German resistance to Hitler and the Nazis. Concludes that the political and intellectual realms of his life often were separate ‐ and that both changed over time.
