L’apport de Robert TORRENS à la théorie Ricardienne du salaire naturel

Olivier Rosell

This paper reconsiders the anteriority of Torrens’ theory of natural wage to that of Ricardo. Ricardo was influenced by Torrens’ thinking when writing the chapter on ‘Wages’ of the Principles. For many historians of economic thought, this influence is limited to Torrens’ focus on the sociocultural aspect of necessity goods, which determine the natural price of labour. While this interpretation is consistent with that of Ricardo, we argue that the anteriority of Torrens to Ricardo concerns more generally the method used by the latter to justify the indexation of the money wages on the money price of subsistence goods, against Malthus. Finally, this paper shows that the tribute paid to Torrens by Ricardo paradoxically explains the misunderstanding of his theory by the posterity.
