Who was Adolf Soetbeer?
Adolf Soetbeer was a German economist, born at Hamburg. In 1840 he became librarian and in 1843 Secretary of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, where he laid the foundation of the excellent system of commercial statistics for which Hamburg became noted. He published Denkschrift über Hamburgs Münzverhältnisse and subsequently numerous monographs and pamphlets, defending the cause of gold monometallism. Until his death he ranked as the leading defender of the single gold standard, the adoption of which by Germany was brought about largely through his efforts. Among his most important works are:
