Notes

First edition of this important contribution to the population debate by Claude François-Joseph d'Auxiron (1728-1778), a key non-physiocratic economist prior to Malthus and one of the earliest advocates of the importance of mathematical economics. "Auxiron's work is significant chiefly because of his analysis of the determinants of population capacity, and his treatment of the relation between population growth and the interoccupational and interclass movements and balance in society" (Spengler, p. 296).
