A brief and pungent volume, analyzing the economic set up of the New Deal, rather than prophesying its outcome, other than by implication. A fearless attack on the motives of Capital in interpreting the New Deal to their own ends and an expose of how, perhaps unwittingly, the administration is falling into the trap set for it, by Big Business. Various social and economic forces and the conflicts within them, the functions of the middle class and what their fate is under present tendencies, the plight of labor, and the stranglehold of proprietary interests. A dismal picture -- and no words minced in presenting it. Clear cut, forceful, challenging. A plea for open-mindedness as to what is happening.
