Abstract

This paper considers a largely unknown pamphlet, originally published anonymously in 1821, and assesses its place in the history of classical and Marxian thinking about value, surplus value and profits. It identifies its author and outlines his career and background in the context of nineteenth-century British politics.

"The pamphletist is a neglected economist—he is even absent from Seligman’s famous 1903 article "On some neglected British economists," which deals with many of his contemporaries, with the intention of rescuing them from undeserved oblivion. All in all, we can say that the pamphletist, even though not completely forgotten, has not received the attention it [sic] deserves if one accepts Marx’s claims on his behalf."

...

"We may last briefly comment on the fact that, apart from his grandson’s statement, no other grounds have been provided for assuming that Dilke was the pamphletist, and indeed this seems to be often taken with a dubitative formula when the attribution is noticed." 56
