Abstract

The paper presents a brief comment in which it is explored the idea of bridging public economic studies with the classical studies on the ancient market in the Roman law. The note follows the idea that the evolution of commercial and market rules in the Roman Empire would aim to regulate the economic human attitude, in order to improve the efficiency of the commercial exchanges and ultimately contribute to the improvement of the social wealth. To explore and discuss the way of governing the ancient market could reveal itself extremely useful, especially in the present moment, since it permits us to understand how to design and improve the modern market rules. This exercise could also have important relapses on the transfer of the academic knowledge in graduate teaching activities, making the Roman law studies extremely modern and appealing.
