Catalogue Note

Galiani's treatise, first printed anonymously in 1751, was not just a work of economics; it was based on the principal that freedom was important for society to work properly and it became very influential in subsequent monetary theory. The text here is unchanged from the first edition but has been supplemented with a preface, notes and an epilogue, remarking on the change in the current situation since the first edition.
