Carey, Henry

Carey, Henry,

1687–1743, English author. After the first collection of his poems appeared in 1713, he turned to writing for the stage. Primarily a writer of farce comedy, his greatest success was Chrononhotonthologos (1734), a burlesque on theatrical bombast. He is best remembered, however, for his songs, in particular the ballad "Sally in Our Alley."

Carey, Henry (Charles)

(1793–1879) economist, publisher; born in Philadelphia. Skipping college, he began working in business and by age 24 was a partner in his father's Baltimore publishing business, learning by reading manuscripts submitted for publication. At age 42, he sold the company to write about economics, publishing his Essay on the Rate of Wages (1935). He espoused laissez-faire economics in the 3-volume Principles of Political Economy (1837, 1838, 1840) and protectionism in Harmony of Interests: Manufacturing and Commercial (1851). He continued to write and publish regularly into the 1870s.
