First edition. The Théorie de la Richesse is important for the influence it had on Auguste's son Léon; it is from this work that Leon derived his conceptual arrangement of capitaux as "all 'goods' that serve more often than once and, in a narrower sense, as durable goods that are themselves produced (capitaux proprement dits). Their services he called revenus, no matter whether they are consumed by the owner (e.g. as leisure in the case of 'personal' capital: this leisure is still travail) or used productively" (Schumpeter p. 999).
