THE BRIMSTONE GAME: A Study in Monopoly

Email this review


Modern monopoly in action, as Prof. Montgomery briefly but patly analyzes today's poverty amidst plenty. He takes brimstone, source of sulphur, as an example of a key product affecting most of modern industry; he shows how prices have been raised, competition blocked, production sabotaged to benefit the few at the top. Only through free prices can there be free men; monopoly is as great a social evil as it is an economic one. Brief and lucid, a challenge to thoughtful citizens. BUT -- I can't see its reaching a wide market.
