[cover title: ] La Société coopérative est la meilleure des caisses d’épargne.
First edition. Léon Say (1826–1896), grandson of Jean-Baptiste Say, ‘became one of the most prominent statesmen of the French Third Republic. He served as Finance Minister from 1872 to 1879, and again in 1882, overseeing the largest financial operation of the century – payment of war reparations in Germany. His financial policies were directed toward a decrease in public expenditures and the removal of barriers to internal trade. A brilliant speaker and debater, he railed against socialism from the left and protectionism from the right … Upon leaving the Cabinet, Say returned to his seat in parliament, assuming the leadership of the free trade party. He was at one time considered for the presidency of the republic, but was gradually set apart from his constituency by a rising tide of radicalism’ (The New Palgrave).
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.
