One of the earliest printed works on the Ottoman political economy was written by Ahmed Midhat Efendi (1844–1912), an esteemed Ottoman author and editor from the time of the Tanzimat and Post-Tanzimat era, who was known for his conservative style of writing.
Ahmed Midhat Efendi was also a patron of Olga Lebedeva (1854-after 1913), the early female scholar and translation from Russian in Istanbul, and a teacher of the Ottoman / Turkish female writer Fatma Aliye.
