The Economist magazine recently called him "a Robin Hood of the law": American lawyer LOUIS DEMBITZ BRANDEIS (1856-1941) developed the concept of the "right to privacy" in an 1890 law journal article, and-in this classic 1914 work-he denounced investment banking, corporatism, monopolies, and the consolidation of American wealth in the hands of a privileged few. In this collection of essays first published the year before in Harper's Weekly, Brandeis championed the progressive economic ideals of Woodrow Wilson's "New Freedom," explained how entrepreneurial efforts and small businesses were being stifled and innovation and competition smothered in the fiscal environment he saw, and offered suggestions for reversing the trend. Hugely influential at the time, Other People's Money and How The Bankers Use It may have contributed to Brandeis's ascension to the United States Supreme Court Justice in 1916 (he would serve until 1939). Today, it serves another purpose: to remind us how the great experiment of American capitalism went astray... again, even in the wake of this powerful and important warning about the same dangers a century ago.

From the Back Cover:

Louis Brandeis published Other People's Money in 1914 to warn of the dangers of the "money trust" - the extensive control a few powerful banks exercised over the nation's money supply and American industry. This new edition places Brandeis's influential work in the context of Progressive-era reform and describes the key role that Brandeis and his book played in shaping early twentieth-century public policy. Photographs, a chronology, questions for consideration, a bibliography, and an index are also provided.

About the Author:

Melvin I. Urofsky is professor of constitutional history at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. He is coeditor, along with David W. Levy, of the multivolume Letters of Louis D. Brandeis and has also written biographies of Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter, and Stephen S. Wise. His most recent works include A Conflict of Rights: The Supreme Court and Affirmative Action (1991) and Letting Go: Death, Dying, and the Law (1993).
