Fourth edition. The second volume, which contains Böhm-Bawerk’s own views (the first volume consists of criticisms of other theories) was rushed through the presses in an unfinished form. Though this was never completely rectified, the third edition, of which the fourth is a reprint, contained revisions and additions, with a new preface by Wieser.

Second edition, substantially enlarged. ‘Giuseppe Palmieri, Marchese di Martignano (1721–94?), was one of that brilliant band of Neapolitans in which Filangieri was perhaps the most widely known figure. Palmieri was primarily a practical administrator. But the welfare economics of the eighteenth-century Consultant Administrators can perhaps be best appreciated by reading his Riflessioni sulla pubblica felicità relativemente al regno di Napoli (1787) or his Pensieri economici … (1789) or his Della ricchezza nazionale (1792)’ (Schumpeter, p. 177n).

This process culminated in the great reform of the Poor Laws in 1834.
