Book Description

This volume contains all the writings that are grouped around Bentham's boldest idea - the proposal of a 'circulating currency': a government sponsored currency which would be both a kind of savings certificate and a kind of paper money. The roots of this proposal are illustrated in two pamphlets from 1794-96, along with subsequent pamphlets and discussions which show Bentham's unsuccessful negotiations with the trasury on this matter.
