This volume also includes Strictures on Mr. Ricardos Doctrines Respecting Exchangeable Value (1818),Mr. Owens Plans for Relieving the National Distress (1839), and an introduction by P.D. Groenewegen. Taken together the three essays provide fresh insights into the formative stage of Torrens economic theory which has come to the fore again because of the debates surrounding Sraffas interpretation of Ricardo (The New Palgrave).
