A "rich history of pure economy"First edition of this "rich history of pure economy", Pareto's contribution to Klein's encyclopedia for 1902. The entry "contains a valuable autobiographical allusion: Pareto lets the reader understand that as soon as he arrived in Lausanne, he started searching for some statistical invariants regarding distribution, in order to fill, by induction, a major gap existing in Walras's system: the endowments with which Walras's individuals enter the market. In this encyclopedia entry, finally, Pareto clearly explains what would ensure if consumer preferences were abandoned" (Montesano & others, p. 523). It was translated into Italian by Guido Sensini in 1906 and later reprinted in Oeuvres complètes, vol. VIII, pp. 126-162.
