Abstract

Read By R. M. Johnston, i.s o., f.s.s,
Government Statistician, Tasmania.
In my previous contributions to the
Royal Society of Tasmania dealing with
many "Root Matters in Social and
Economic Problems," I have elaborately
dealt with questions touching the conditions
affecting the production, accumulation,
distribution, and consumption of
wealth. These, together, occupy too large a
field for even a passing review in a simple
address, and therefore I have restricted
my observations this evening to "Wealth
and its Distribution," as at present in the
United Kingdom and in the Common
wealth of Australia.
The following tabular illustrations haVe
been carefully prepared, based upon the
most reliable official statistics, with the
object of showing approximately the
annual value and distribution of all wealth
produced, designed for consumption and
for the satisfactions of the people. Also
showing, approxinately, the result to each
class of breadwinners, on the assumption
that it would be practicable to Pool, and
divide the incomes or eqnivalent products
of all breadwinners equally according to
the Eisenbach Programme of Social Equality, after deducting the necessary
materials (estimated at 15 per cent. of
annual products) to provide the government
of the social State, with means to
create and maintain the existing inanimate
and other auxilliary instruments of production
necessary to keep up the required
standard of comforts and satisfactions.
