Benjamin Franklin As An Economist Volume Ix
PREFACE. In the works of so versatile a writer as Franklin expressions of opinion can be found upon nearly every topic in the entire economic field. The purpose of this monograph has been not to weave together fragmentary expressions into an artificial whole, but rather to present such of Franklins , views as seem fairly entitled to the rank of economic theories.
