Charles Stanton Devas

Political economist, born Woodside, England, 1848; died 1906. He was received into the Church in his youth, and was graduated from Oxford. He treats political economy from a Catholic standpoint, opposing the current teaching in so far as it considers ethics and history irrelevant. His most important works are "A Manual of Political Economy" (London, 1892), and "The Key to the World's Progress" (London, 1906).
