It completes the record on Ricardian value theory by showing Ricardos reaction to Malthuss pamphlet The Measure of Value Stated and Illustrated of 1823. Ricardos Notes are, in Sraffas words, the only considerable item not appearing in the Royal Economic Society edition of his works. In addition, the recent publication by Cambridge of the variorum edition of Malthuss Principles of Political Economy, edited by J. M. Pullen, makes it possible to understand Malthuss pamphlet as an intermediate step between the 1820 and 1836 editions of the Principles. In his introduction Pier Luigi Porta highlights the place of these Notes in the development of Ricardos thinking. When taken with Ricardos paper on Absolute Value and Exchangeable Value, these Notes provide the essentials of Ricardian value theory.
