Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781), French politician and economist

Anne Robert Jacques Turbot (1727-1781), French politician and economist. Turgot was an advocate of free trade and laissez-faire principles in economics. As comptroller-general of finances (1774-1776), Turgot advocated radical reforms to the French economy and taxation system. His policies, particularly edicts abolishing guilds and levying taxation on all, including the nobility, made Turgot many enemies, and Louis XVI was persuaded to demand his resignation. Turgot's edicts were repealed, but his conviction that the only alternative to radical reform was revolution proved to be correct in 1789

The Imperial Saloon, SY Livadia, 1880 Featured Turbot Image

The Imperial Saloon, SY Livadia, 1880

Engraving of the Imperial Saloon on Czar Alexander II's steam yacht Livadia, built at John Elder's shipyard, Govan, in 1880. Extremely lavishly fitted out, this yacht was given a radical design, supposedly based on the shape of a turbot. This flat fish design, 235 foot long, 153 foot wide at it's beamiest and with only 6 foot draught, was very unsuccessful, with passengers complaining of extreme seasickness. The Livadia was broken up in 1927
