Hours And Wages In Relation To Production is a book written by the German economist Lujo Brentano and originally published in 1894. The book is a study of the relationship between working hours, wages, and productivity in the manufacturing industry. Brentano’s central argument is that reducing working hours can actually increase productivity and improve the overall quality of life for workers. He uses data from various European countries to support his argument and also examines the impact of wage levels on productivity. The book is considered an important contribution to the field of labor economics and has influenced debates on working hours and wages for over a century.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
