About Sir Prof. Moses I Finley

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moses_Finley

Sir Moses I. Finley, FBA (born Moses Isaac Finkelstein; 20 May 1912 – 23 June 1986), was an American-born British academic and classical scholar. His prosecution by the McCarran Security Committee led to his move to England, where he became an English classical scholar and eventually master of Darwin College, Cambridge. His most notable work is The Ancient Economy (1973), where he argued that status and civic ideology governed the economy in antiquity rather than rational economic motivations.
