231 pages. History certainly does repeat itself as the following statement appears upon the title page: "Equity and justice demand that the merchant, manufacturer, farmer, and wage-earner shall receive as much consideration at the hands of the law-makers as is accorded to those who deal in money." Clearly, the author would not be a fan of Goldman Sachs and their modern-day ilk. Chapter titles include the following: Thirty Years' Fall in Prices; Disastrous Effects of Falling Prices; Opinions Regarding the Cause of the Fall in Prices; Money, its use and abuse; Our Money a Banker's Money; A Monetary System Which Will Restore Prosperity; Bimetallism as a Cure; Immigration; Trusts and Department Stores as a Cause; Overproduction; Hard Times - The Effect of "Improved Machinery"; Confidence; Supply and Demand; Review and Summary of Overproduction; Review and Summary of Bimetallism; Conclusion. Tissue-protected black and white photographic frontisplate of author. Bright gilt lettering upon maroon backstrip and decorated front board. Prior owner's signature upon front free endpaper, otherwise unmarked. Moderate wear. Binding sound. An above-average copy of this important and timely work.
