Travels in France and Italy during the Years 1787, 1788 and 1789

By: Arthur Young

Economic Theory Literature

Preface: It is a question whether modern history has anything more curious to offer to the attention of the politician than the progress and rivalship of the French and English empires from the ministry of Colbert to the revolution in France. In the course of those one hundred and thirty years, both have figured with a degree of splendour that has attracted the admiration of mankind. In proportion to the power, the wealth, and the resources of these nations, is the inter...

Corruption : The Facts

By: Daniel Kaufmann

Economics

This citation attests to the ancient nature of corruption, which amounts to the abuse of public office for private gain. Yet it also illustrates that even then corruption was regarded as corrosive to the development of the state and that specific measures were therefore needed in response. The king's adviser perceptively hinted at the link between illiberal trade, bureaucratic harassment at the border, and corruption. And he understood that corruption encompassed far mor...

Physics and Politics

By: Walter Bagehot

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: No. I. The Preliminary Age. One peculiarity of this age is the sudden acquisition of much physical knowledge. There is scarcely a department of science or art which is the same, or at all the same, as it was fifty years ago. A new world of inventions ? of railways and of telegraphs ? has grown up around us which we cannot help seeing; a new world of ideas is in the air and affects us, though we do not see it. A full estimate of these effects would require a grea...

The Character and Logical Method of Political Economy

By: John E. Cairnes

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Preface to Second Edition. In offering to the public a new edition of some lectures delivered in Dublin more than seventeen years ago, a few words of explanation are needed. As regards the substance of the opinions advanced ? the view taken of Political Economy, and of its methods of proof and development ? the present work does not differ from its predecessor; but extensive changes have been made in the form and treatment. Numerous passages have been recast; in...

By: Jean-Baptiste Say

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: A new edition of this translation of the popular treatise of M. Say having been called for, the five previous American editions being entirely out of print, the editor has endeavoured to render the work more deserving of the favour it has received, by subjecting every part of it to a careful revision. As the translation of Mr. Prinsep was made in the year 1821, from an earlier edition of the original treatise, namely, the fourth, which had not received the last ...

The Scope and Method of Political Economy

By: John Neville Keynes

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Preface to The First Edition. The nature of the topics discussed in the following pages is sufficiently indicated in the introductory chapter, and a lengthy preface is therefore unnecessary. The abstract discussion of methods may appear to some to have mainly an academic interest, since it does not directly extend our knowledge of economic phenomena. Whilst, however, we ought to be upon our guard against allowing any such discussion to obscure the greater import...

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Prefatory Note. This work has been with me a labor of love. The gathering of materials for it, and the writing of it, as carrying me into what I feel to be interesting scenes, have afforded me great pleasure, which is the only reward I am likely to get. I publish it, as the last, and to me the only remaining, means of testifying my regard for my country?loved all the more because I am now far from it?and my country?s philosophy, which has been the means of stimu...
