Written to expose some of the prevailing fallacies on these subjects; and to prove that the laws passed under the influence of those fallacies will greatly obstruct and injure the operations of industry; and have no power to effect the purpose designed by them. With a postscript on the tendency of the wages of labour in England and Ireland to become equal, and the consequences resulting therefrom exemplified." iv, 139p. 22.5 cm.
