KIRKUS REVIEW

This book debunks the old stand-pat form of economic theory, the law of supply and demand and many of the old shibboleths. The author traces the four methods that he contends prevail --predation, parasitism, commercial production and family production, and, in criticism of existing methods, he demands the need of change, with family production taking an increasing place in a fresh approach to prosperity and security. ""Laws, institutions, and practices effecting economic life must be based on the innate need of actual human beings, not only for prosperity and security, but for everything else which enters into life"". Not an A B C book of modern economics, but a book for those interested in studying new slants on the subject.
