His contributions to political economics is his theory on the improved living standards and social conditions of individuals and their relationship to the market. His thoughts have become the foundation of the democratic states.

Tocqueville also forecasted rising of the United States and Russia as the two main global powers in his book Democracy in America as the follows:

"There are now two great nations in the world, which starting from different points, seem to be advancing toward the same goal: the Russians and the Anglo-Americans... Each seems called by some secret design of Providence one day to hold in its hands the destinies of half the world."

According to Tocqueville’s long tour in the States, he concluded the core value that is still living today as “I must say that I have seen Americans make a great deal of real sacrifices to the public welfare; and have noticed a hundred instances in which they hardly ever failed to lend a faithful support to one another”.

Tocqueville’s reasoning still remains as relevant today as it was then.   This book is one of the most important ones about the deepest thoughts of democratic society by Tocqueville, one of the greatest thinkers of political economics on the planet.
