Laws of Wages: An Essay in Statistical Economics. [First Edition]
First edition of the author’s first book. Henry Ludwell More (1869–1958) was an early American pioneer in the field of statistical economics, i.e. econometrics. A Maryland native, he was graduated by Johns Hopkins University in 1896 and then went to the University of Vienna and studied under Carl Menger. “Moore’s first book, on testing the marginal productivity theory of wages, was well received as a pioneering venture, although Alfred Marshall refused to read it, telling Moore that ‘it proceeds on lines which I deliberately decided not to follow many years ago.’” (Wikipedia)
