About this Item

Sept. 1914, (first printing), 233 pages. "Present-day discussion on the high cost of living shows some bewilderment in the mind of the general public as to the mechanism by which the scale of money prices is determined. Few people realize that the principles determining the general scale of prices are quite distinct from the principles determining the individual prices them themselves. The object of this book is to state, as simply as possible, the general principles which fix the scale of prices, and to show the manner in which these principles apply to the present "high cost of living." "For about a hundred years the world has been suffering from periodic changes in the scale of prices, affecting the interests of hundreds of millions of human beings and producing alternate expansions and depressions of trade. It is not too much to say that the evils of a variable monetary standard are among the most serious economic evils with which civilization has to deal. In the United States we are about to witness some extremely interesting applications of the principles here stated, owing to the great two acts passed by Congress toward the close of 1913, i.e. the tariff act and the currency act." VERY GOOD+ HARDCOVER, blue cloth covers, lettering is bright on the spine and cover, scarce. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 020485
