and Arts to which it is subservient,
has been one of the principal obstacles to its improvement.
- Nassau William Senior

The first, or theoretic branch, that which explains the nature,

to use as the sole, or even the principal,
guides in the actual conduct of affairs.
- Nassau William Senior

out and generally recognised,

and its principles form a part of elementary instruction.

for the slow progress which has as yet been made by Political Economy,
and to suggest means by which its advancement may be accelerated,
but also to warn the reader of the nature of the following Treatise.
