Abstract: This work places some of the economic writings of the XVI and XVII centuries in the context of the technological and scientific revolutions of the period and those preceding it, the transition phase from feudalism into capitalism. It also discusses the change in focus by the authors, from theological, logical and ethic subjects to the "basic facts of life", as occurred in the centuries studied. For this, relevance is given to William Petty's work. It goes on to discuss the progress in the adequacy of energy systems and how this transforms the feudal reality into the guidelines of a mercantilist economy, also altering the concerns of the knowledgeable into social issues, leading them to acknowledge international trade as one of the factors explaining the enrichment of a Nation. Finally, the economic thinking of the period is broken down, aiming to stress the influence of the energy systems and of technology on the writings, as well as the authors' view or that of the academy on those issues.
