Abstract

Few subjects are so generally misunderstood as political
economy; and not only among the masses is ignorance of its
simplest principles found, but even among those who aspire
to be the leaders of public opinion. And yet, no branch of
knowledge is more necessary for that large class of men whose
province it is to direct or to influence the destinies of States
by wielding the Executive and Legislative powers, by instructing
the people, and by ministering in the way of
commerce, to its wants. Our educational systems are much
to blame for this defect.
