The Economic Party (Partito Economico, PE) was an Italian political party founded in 1919 in Turin by a group of dealers and industrialists worried by the Red Biennium. The party was characterized by an economist vision and a conservative and reactionary tendency.

The Economic Party was particularly rooted in the great cities of the north Italy and in Sicily, also thanks to the alliance with the Agrarian Party. To the 1919 general elections the party got the 1,5% of the vote and 7 seats. Instead, to the 1921 general elections, it got only the 0,8% of the vote and 5 seats. It joined subsequently to the Agrarian Party.
