The view which I take is opposed to the opinions of some distinguished
writers, among whom I regret to place Mr. John Stuart
Mill. In various forms, through his work upon the "Elements of
Political Economy," I find theories contradictory to two propositions
which appear to me to be cleaily demonstrable; viz. that in
the absence of interference with economic laws, the productiveness
of labor has no assignable limit; and that the natural laws of
distribution are more favourable to the amount of the laborer's
proportion of the produce, than any artificial regulations which
can be devised, either by the legislature or by the laborers themselves.
