Adolph Wagner


German economist and politician, a leading Kathedersozialist (academic socialist) and public finance scholar and advocate of Agrarianism. Wagner's Law of increasing state activity is named after him.

In 1870 Wagner was rector of the Friedrich Wilhelm (now Humboldt) University of Berlin, by that time not only the premier university in Germany but probably in the world. It was in Berlin, that Wagner unfolded his tenure as one of the intellectually and politically most influential economists of his time. A former student of his, Werner Sombart, was his successor at the economics chair of the University of Berlin.

Wagner died 8 November 1917, Berlin.
