KIRKUS REVIEW

Robey takes the stand as a calm, unemotional critic of the New Deal, keeping his arguments free from political coloring and dwelling solely on economic policies. He believes that the government has muffed its chance to reorganize soundly the banking structure and industry, and has formulated no lasting benefits for the farmer; that artificial structure created by financing economic misfits can lead only to national bankruptcy and fascism. He suggests cleaning house before cost is too high and returning to the tenets of liberal capitalism. Clear logical style for the layman. Should deserve the attention of even the New Deal advocates. The subjects treated include: review of monetary policy, the theories of the N R A; the agricultural program, government spending, government guaranteeing policy. It is perhaps the best of the popular surveys of the New Deal yet published.
