KIRKUS REVIEW

Economics in simplified terms, for vocational and educational profit -- but not a practical popularization in tabloid form. A serious discussion of the basic principles of wealth and its acquisition, in theory and application. Kinds of wealth, land, capital goods, the necessities, the non-necessities, etc. Creating a business of your own; securing capital, incorporation, distribution, creating new money, monopoly, control, speculation. And lastly, the broader implications of money, its international aspects, the moral concept of power, capital vs labor, and the importance of education and ethics in any individual's enterprise...With futures as uncertain as they are, this may find a very real place in the serious study of the boys who will come to-what?
