Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt
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 I may call attention especially to Dr. Lohmann?s Staatliche Regelung der englischen Wollindustrie vom xv bis zum xviii Jahrhundert (1900), to Miss Leonard?s Early History of English Poor Belief (1900), and to Mr. Unwin?s Industrial Organisation in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries (1904). The two last-named books open new paths for further investigation; and they are peculiarly welcome as coming from English hands, considering how long we have been dependent upon the gifts of foreign scholars. On the course of Economic Thought in the seventeenth century I may provisionally refer to some papers of mine collected in my volume of Surveys, Historic and Economic (1900). It is with regard to the agrarian side, however, of English development that the ground is still most insecure. And though I am not at all ready to accept every one of their conclusions, I should like to be among the first to point out that the subject has been carried on to a new stage by the researches of two American scholars?Professor Page, in his End of Villainage in England (Amer. Econ. Assoc., 1900), and Professor Gay, in his article on Inclosures in England in the Sixteenth Century (Q. J. of Econ., Aug., 1903).
