An Inquiry into the Permanent Causes of the Decline and Fall of Powerful and Wealthy Nations.

Book cover
An historical review of different forms under which human affairs have appeared in different ages and nations naturally suggests the question, whether the experience of former times may not now furnish some general principles to enlighten and direct the policy of future legislators? The discussion, however, to which the question leads is of singular difficulty; as it requires an accurate analysis of by far the most complicated class of phenomena that can possibly engage our attention… - From the Preface.
By 1807 work by a Scottish engineer and political economist, the founder of graphical methods of statistics, William Playfair.
