POLITICAL ECONOMY. The title of Professor of Political Economy was conferred by a Grace of the Senate, in May 1828, on George Pryme, Esq., A.M., ate Fellow of Trinity College.

Lectures on this science had been given by him for some years previous, under the sanction of the University. They attempt to analyse the original and efficient causes of national prosperity—to shew by what measures of the Legislature, and by what conduct of individuals in private life, it is augmented or diminished—and to assist the reader of history in explaining the phenomena of the strength or weakness, the rise or fall, of States.

They are of an elementary, and popular nature, requiring no previous knowledge of the subject. They are intended to facilitate the study of a science, till lately inaccessible without the most arduous perseverance; to simplify the order, explain the obscurities, and point out the errors, of A. Smith's Inquiry into the Wealth of Nations; to combine with his discoveries what the experience of subsequent events, and the researches of subsequent authors, have taught, and to place some part of the subject in a point of view different from what any writer had then done. Their plan is-Ist, To trace the history of national wealth from the rudesť to the richest state of society, and to examine each change as it naturally arises in the progress of opulence and civilization; 2dly, Briefly to explain the systems of the ancients, of Dr Paley, of the French'economists, and what is called the commercial system; and 3dly, To explain the principles of taxation and finance. They are usually given in the Lent Term.
