An uncommon statistical essay on the meat export tradeFirst edition, uncommon, of this short but statistically detailed essay on the meat export trade in which McCulloch reassures domestic meat producers that meat imports can have no effect on the home trade. Prices would not be cheaper and, in any case, the meat itself - Holstein beef excepted - was judged to be "universally inferior to that of England; and the continental mutton is hardly eatable".
