In the 1830s, the idea of free trade entering the country through foreigners residing in the Ottoman Empire and having ambassadors of foreign consuls in Istanbul became an unrivaled system of thought until the 1880s. Firstly in the 1870s, the 1838 Trade Agreement was signed in light of the principle of free trade. In Tercuman-i Hakikat, Ahmet Mithat and Mizanci Murat demanded protective customs tariffs in Mizan for the country's economic development and protection of industry. Kazanli Akyigitzade Musa, who taught economics at the Military School in this period, also adopted the idea of patronage. In 1896, he said that the state should protect industry with customs walls for the economic development of Ottomans in his book Ilm-i Servet: Azadegi-i Ticaret and Usul-i Himaye. In this study, the authoritarian economic views of Akyigitzade Musa known as Iktisad yahud Ilm-i Servet: Azadegi-i Ticaret ve Usul-i Himaye ve Ilm-i Servet veyahut Ilm-i Iktisad will be given in the light of economics books.
