Production of commodites by means of commodities;: Prelude to a critique of economic theory.

by SRAFFA, Piero

Condition: See description


Cambridge: Cambridge University Press,, 1960. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered gilt, with the dust jacket. A little fading to board edges; an excellent copy in the slightly faded jacket with some nicks and chips to extremities. First edition of Sraffa's attempt to perfect classical economics' theory of value, as originally developed by David Ricardo and others. "Production of Commodities is a peculiarly sparse book. The argument has been pared to the absolute minimum to sustain the propositions which Sraffa wishes to advance. Yet, the precision and logical elegance of the argument are 'the work of an artist working in the medium of economic theory' (P. Newman)" (John Eatwell in The New Palgrave).

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
