    Bailey, William F. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1894)

    Edge, J. H. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1894)

  • Bimetallism 

    Barbour, David (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1895)
    I have to apologise for bringing before such a Society as that which I now address a paper which I cannot help feeling deals inadequately with the great question of our future standard of value. To many of you my remarks ...

  • The fluctuating character of modern employment. 

    Oldham, C.H. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1896)

    Samuels, Arthur W. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1897)
