Dumas attempts a new classification scheme for economic activity that he believes will be helpful in understanding and curing both inflation and unemployment. Economic activity is either contributive, neutral, or distractive based on its impact on the society's standard of living. Diverting resources from contributive activity, Dumas says, is the major cause of economic problems. Unfortunately, his new terminology is too vague, too technical, and ultimately too confusing. The book could use more real world examples of the new taxonomy, and Dumas does not establish a convincing need for such changes in classification. Recommended only for comprehensive collections.
