We suggest a few points on mercantilism. First, we should distinguish between the econmic policies and economic ideas of the 17th and 18th centuries. The English economic policies will be understood with relation to the hegemony of Holland and its decline. Second, we will abandon the term 'mercantilism' in the history of economic thought. Instead of it, we propose a new classification of the early history of economic thought, that is, I. a practical economic discourse (from 1600 to 1740), II. protoclassical political economy (R. Cantillon, D. Hume, J. Steuart, A. Smith), III. classical political economy (D. Ricardo, T. R. Malthus, J. S. Mill and so on).
