From the website on the Dahlberg papers: "Arthur Olaus Dahlberg, inventor, economist and author of several books on economic theory, was born in Escanaba, Michigan in 1898. He graduated with a degree in engineering from the University of Michigan in 1920, received a master's degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin in 1927 and completed his formal education in 1931 with a Ph.D. in sociology from Wisconsin. Dahlberg was an instructor of machine design at Wisconsin in 1929 when he invented a new kind of fountain pen. The design incorporated a unique filling mechanism which appealed to the Parker Pen Company. The company purchased Dahlberg's patent rights in 1931 and marketed the pen successfully for several years. The first of Dahlberg's seven books on economics, Jobs, Machines and Capitalism, appeared in 1932. Although Dahlberg went to work for the National Recovery Administration in 1933, the collection contains very little concerning his work with the agency. (Among his more interesting ideas was a proposal for a thirty hour week. ) In 1944 Dahlberg became the president of the U.S. Economics Corporation, a consulting firm that provided advice and forecasting services to several major corporations. A recurring theme of his writings is the role of money in the nation's economic health. Dalberg retired from U.S. Economics in 1971 but continued writing until his death in 1981." This work presents a proposal for addressing an economic depression which did not involved goverment spending, regimentation, or price fixing. The book contains both a plan for recovery and a ringing defense of the competitive against the administrative state. Good. No dust jacket. Some endpaper discoloration. COver has some wear and soiling. Bookseller Inventory # 66580
