The English Constitution

By: Walter Bagehot

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Introduction to the Second Edition. There is a great difficulty in the way of a writer who attempts to sketch a living Constitution, ? a Constitution that is in actual work and power. The difficulty is that the object is in constant change. An historical writer does not feel this difficulty: he deals only with the past; he can say definitely, the Constitution worked in such and such a manner in the year at which he begins, and in a manner in such and such respec...

Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle

By: Translated by W.D. Ross

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: BOOK I. 1. Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim. But a certain difference is found among ends; some are activities, others are products apart from the activities that produce them. Where there are ends apart from the actions, it is the nature of the products to be better than the activities. Now, as there are m...

Physics and Politics

By: Walter Bagehot

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: No. I. The Preliminary Age. One peculiarity of this age is the sudden acquisition of much physical knowledge. There is scarcely a department of science or art which is the same, or at all the same, as it was fifty years ago. A new world of inventions ? of railways and of telegraphs ? has grown up around us which we cannot help seeing; a new world of ideas is in the air and affects us, though we do not see it. A full estimate of these effects would require a grea...

An Introduction to English Economic History and Theory

By: Sir William Ashley

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Preface to the Fourth Edition. It has not been possible in the present edition to do more than make a few slight verbal corrections here and there. The researches of scholars during the last thirteen years have not, indeed, substantially affected most of the conclusions here set forth; though they have served to carry on the story of English economic evolution, and, in particular, to bridge the gulf between the Middle Ages and the eighteenth century. Among them ...

Imperial Germany and the Industrial Revolution

By: Thorstein Veblen

Economic Theory Literature

Preface: Some apology may seem due on offering at this season so unwarlike a study as what here follows on the case of Imperial Germany and its place in modern civilisation. The essay was projected before the current war came on, though the complexion of subsequent events has also doubtless had its effect on the particular direction taken by the argument at more than one point in the inquiry. The inquiry in hand, therefore, is concerned neither with the controverted meri...

Leviathan or the Matter, Forme, And Power of a Common-Wealth Eccle...

By: Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury

Economic Theory Literature

Introduction: Nature (the art whereby God hath made and governs the world) is by the art of man, as in many other things, so in this also imitated, that it can make an artificial animal. For seeing life is but a motion of limbs, the beginning whereof is in some principal part within, why may we not say that all automata (engines that move themselves by springs and wheels as doth a watch) have an artificial life? For what is the heart, but a spring; and the nerves, but so...

The Philosophy of History Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

By: Charles Hegel

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Translator?s Introduction. Hegel?s Lectures on the Philosophy of History are recognized in Germany as a popular introduction to his system; their form is less rigid than the generality of metaphysical treatises, and the illustrations, which occupy a large proportion of the work, are drawn from a field of observation more familiar perhaps, than any other, to those who have not devoted much time to metaphysical studies. One great value of the work is that it prese...

International Trade : An Application of Economic Theory

By: John A. Hobson

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Chapter I. The Importance of External Trade. Since the end of industry is to place consumable goods in the hands of consumers, the industrial prosperity of a nation is measured by the quantity of material and non-material goods of various sorts which are consumed by its members. The employment of capital and labour in the industrial arts, trades, and professions is to be regarded as a means to the production of commodities. The quantity of such employment cannot...

The Mechanism of the Modern State : A Treatise on the Science and ...

By: Sir John A.R. Marriott

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: The primary purpose of this book is to set forth the actual working of the English Constitution. Its method is mainly analytical; but no one can apprehend the genius of an historical Constitution from mere analysis. I have, therefore, traced the historical evolution of the principal organs of the Body Politic, both as they function in England and in the British Dominions. With constitutional history and political analysis there mingles also a certain amount of p...

Glossary of Key Terms in Evaluation and Results Based Management

By: Niels Dabelstein

Economics

The DAC Working Party on Aid Evaluation (WP-EV) has developed this glossary of key terms in evaluation and results -based management because of the need to clarify concepts and to reduce the terminological confusion frequently encountered in these areas. Evaluation is a field where development partners ? often with widely differing linguistic backgrounds ? work together and need to use a common vocabulary. Over the years, however, definitions evolved in such a way that t...

A Letter Concerning Toleration

By: John Locke

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Honoured Sir, Since you are pleased to inquire what are my thoughts about the mutual toleration of Christians in their different professions of religion, I must needs answer you freely that I esteem that toleration to be the chief characteristic mark of the true Church. For whatsoever some people boast of the antiquity of places and names, or of the pomp of their outward worship; others, of the reformation of their discipline; all, of the orthodoxy of their fait...

Ancient Town-Planning

By: F. Haverfield

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: CHAPTER I. PRELIMINARY REMARKS. Town-planning?the art of laying out towns with due care for the health and comfort of inhabitants, for industrial and commercial efficiency, and for reasonable beauty of buildings?is an art of intermittent activity. It belongs to special ages and circumstances. For its full unfolding two conditions are needed. The age must be one in which, whether through growth, or through movements of population, towns are being freely founded o...
