Excerpt from An Inquiry Into the Various Systems of Political Economy: Their Advantages and Disadvantages, and the Theory Most Favourable to the Increase of National Wealth

N 0 study can be more attractive to a bene' volent mind than that which 1nv est1 gates the means of providing a plentiful national 1ncome, and insuring the happfness of the individual members of the community, by enabling them to obtain the supply of their wants through the exertions of their industry. That comme1ce is one of the most powerful of those means has long been acknowledged in this country: but that this truth should find an able advocate in France, at a time when her ruler is bent. Upon destroying commerce, is a circumstance, as extraordinary as it is honourable, to the author of the Inquiry into the various Systems of Political Economy. The impartiality and the soundness of the views which he displays in his work give it a particular claim to the attention of the English nation; and it is with the view to render its circulation more general, that I have attempted a translation, in which I have chiefly aimed at fidelity and perspicuity.
