Études d'économie sociale.
Theorie de la répartition de la richesse sociale.Lausanne & Paris: F. Rouge, F. Pichon, 1896 Stock Code: 97679
First edition of one of Walras's major contributions to his economico-social doctrine, based on lectures which he held at the University of Lausanne during the years of 1870 through 1892. "As far as pure theory is concerned, Walras is in my opinion the greatest of all economists" (Schumpeter in: Blaug, Great economists before Keynes, p. 264).
In this work, as well as in his Etudes d'Economie politique appliquée (1898), Walras's main interest in pure theory (which he had earlier presented in Eléments d'Economie politique pure, 1874-77), shifted to issues of applied economics and social economics which actually was a revival of the activity he began when he was young.
