Simple Truths free pdf Excerpt from Simple Truths: The English Version- A Small Treatise on Political Economy- For the Information of Chinamen The origin of this little book was as follows: A friend of mine, with whom i had frequent conversation on economic subjects, remarked to me on the utter ignorance of the Chinese, of all classes, of the rudiments of political economy, and stated that, in his opinion, the educating them in this respect would be a most useful work of philanthropy, and he urged me to write a simple book on the subject in Chinese- other friends having made a similar request, I at length determined to undertake the work, and placed myself in communication with the Society at Shanghai for diffusing useful knowledge among the Chinese. On looking over the list of subjects, on which the Society wished short essays, I found many were connected with political economy, and I therefore made up my mind to write sixteen short essays on the subjects, and kindred subjects, proposed by the Society, in such a manner that the sixteen essays, when taken together, should form an elementary treatise on political economy. My friend, the Rev. Mr. Sadler, kindly undertook the labour of translating my English manuscript into Chinese, and was good enough to request that the English version should also be published. To this request I have acceded with considerable misgivings, as I make no pretention whatever to have anything new to say on economic subjects, and all I have written will doubtless, though new to the Chinese, be trite and stale enough to English students of political economy. I have as far as possible avoided all matter on which there is controversy, and where I could not avoid them I have refrained from expressing my own views, and have endeavoured to give fairly the arguments on both sides.
