By the end of the XIXth century, the idea of liberal economics had gained validity in the Ottoman State. During this period, Mehmed Cavid Bey stands out as "a symbol of the liberal economic thought of the late Ottoman State". This study examined the views of Mehmed Cavid Bey, who advocated liberalism. His arguments in favor of economic liberalism are of theoretical consistency. However, his theoretical consistency disappears when his anti-protectionism arguments are taken into account. When considering the inconsistency in Mehmed Cavid Bey's statements as necessary to establish trade relations through international trade agreements, it can be considered that he did not propose economic freedom in absolute terms. Thus, it can be said that Mehmed Cavid Bey's description as the symbol name of economic liberalism in the history of Ottoman economic thought is not an appropriate assessment.
