This article revisits the reasons why Leon Walras did not give enough consideration to the economic and social analysis of Adolphe Landry. Both were fervent defenders of socialism and their recommendations for social economics are based on thorough economic analysis. We show that Walras did not evaluate Landry’s work fairly because of various methodological inconsistencies and different assessments of the forms of competition and resulting rules related to distributive justice.
