The work deals with the calculation of Dominical income. This income of forty scudi gives an unexpected calculation: from a fictitious division of the number of acres of the kingdom, with the number of its subjects, and the rent associated to the corresponding surface one could calculate a first draft of social income. In practice, Voltaire explains that this amount just makes it possible to survive, and explains that the tax burden, had been reasonable under Henry IV and with the ascent to the throne of Louis XIII became more restrictive. The work, due to its uncomfortable themes, was put on the index.
