Don't spend money on this version

This is a badly formatted edition with many typos and the footnotes are not hyperlinked. I was able to find a completely free edition elsewhere that was formatted perfectly. So sad that Heraklion Press want to profit from such sloppiness and laziness.
Edit: I should also mention that this edition, by Heraklion Press, is heavily abridged even although it does not say so anywhere on the front or back.
Ricardo's work is largely of historical importance for those with an interest in the development of economic theory. Much of what he says, for example that equal amounts of labour time may have different values owing to factors such as productivity and the cost of living, has passed into common sense and would not be a revelation even to a first year university student. His work is also of interest to those who wish to see its influence on Marx's Capital, which is the definitive work of political economy.
