From the author:

The following is a study in the history of free enterprise ideas. Specifically it presents the political economy of William Graham Sumner, highlighting the ideas and analysis that mark his contribution to economic thought, and make him an interesting figure in this field. In the study, we will concentrate on his early writings, notably the short papers, speeches and pamphlets which he wrote between 1873 and 1895, and not on the famous Science of Society which is a-jointly authored work that cannot, unfortunately, be identified solely as Sumner’s
