The Wisdom of the Wise: Three Lectures on Free Trade Imperialism
William Cunningham (1849-1919) was a prominent British economist and economic historian. In this book, which was first published in 1906, Cunningham provides a discussion of the limits of free trade imperialism, taking issue with the economic and political theories of Richard Haldane, John St Loe Strachey and Lord Rosebery. The text was based upon a series of lectures delivered during 1906 in Cambridge, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Detailed notes are incorporated throughout and appendices are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in economic history and the development of free trade.
