First edition. Le Trosne was a lawyer. Attracted by the natural law aspects of their system, he joined the physiocrats in 1764, contributing articles to their journals, and writing works defending and explaining their ideas.In his "ordre social" he explains the social principles professed by the physiocrats. This is followed by his famous speech advocating the free trade of grain within France. "L'intérêt social" belongs to the strict field of economics and treats that subject with great depth.
