In this groundbreaking work, economist Henry Charles Carey investigates the causes of wealth inequality and economic underdevelopment in the 19th century. He argues that a flawed understanding of economic principles is responsible for these issues, and proposes a set of guidelines for a new, more equitable system of political economy. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of economic thought and the origins of modern economic theory.
