HOW MUCH MORE THE SKILLED WORKER SHOULD BE PAID THAN HIS UNSKILLED COUNTERPART DUBOIS-AYMÉ [Jean Marie Joseph Aimé DUBOIS, known as].

Examen de quelques questions d’économie politique, et notamment de l’ouvrage de M. Ferrier intitulé Du Gouvernement considéré dans ses rapports avec le commerce.

First edition. Dubois-Aymé uses mathematical methodology to examine two of the cases he considers. In the first instance he ‘compares the power due to the riches of two countries.
