Of all the problems that political economy offers for the consideration of philosophers, one of the most interesting is doubtless the knowledge of the law regulating the progression of the population. To resolve this exactly it would be necessary to assess the influence of the numerous causes that impede or favor the multiplication of the human species. And since several of these causes are variable by nature and by their mode of action, the problem considered in all its generality is clearly insoluble.
