Die Währungsänderung in Britisch-Indien.
First edition of this rare paper, offprinted from Zeitschrift für Volkswirtschaft, Socialpolitik und Verwaltung, volume III, issue I, on the changes of the Indian currency against the silver and gold prices. From 1873 the value of the Rupee sank considerably, leading to the British government of India’s decision in 1893 to close the mints. Zuckerkandl (1856-1926), professor of political economy at the universities of Vienna and Prague, was among the first historians of price theory. In this work he illustrates the contemporary monetary turbulence with statistical material and tables of the development of the Indian economy.
HOLROYD, John Baker, Earl of Sheffield.
Observations on the Impolicy, Abuses, and False Interpretation of the Poor Laws; and on the Reports of the two Houses of Parliament.
First edition. Holroyd (1735–1821) highlights current abuses of the Poor Laws and praises the efforts at reform then being debated in Parliament. ‘There remains not a question that the Reports will encourage and promote various suggestions and useful observations, that will elucidate and enlighten still further this great, important, and interesting subject.’ (p. 60). This process culminated in the great reform of the Poor Laws in 1834.
