Early Sources in Economics

About the Series

Early Sources in Economics makes available a wide range of significant economics texts, including many which have been overlooked because they predate The Wealth of Nations. The series focuses in particular on the major subjects which animated the classical economists and which were seen as the levers of long-term economic growth. In particular, this series benefits from being re-typeset as this makes it possible to include texts which cannot be photo-offset.
