Book Description

First Published in 1966. This volume is study of the population and wage theories prevalent in the eighteenth century France. Designed to fill a gap in previous volumes in the history of economic doctrine; and to better accomplish this purpose, population and wage theory has been given a broader denotation and connotation than is customary today.
