Gresham's law - A monetary theory stating that "bad money drives out good" named after Sir Thomas Gresham (1519–1579), an English financier during the Tudor dynasty. This idea formulated Gresham's law in 1860 was expressed many times earlier, notably by Nicolaus Copernicus. That's why it is sometimes called the Gresham–Copernicus law.
