KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the first of a series to be known as WHEN THE WAR ENDS. There are to be six titles, coming about two months apart, each dealing with some phase of post war problems. Tentative titles:- Goals for America; The Dollar Dilemma; Tomorrow's Trade Farmer, Worker, Business Man; Winning the Peace. The first book provides a flash of the last twenty five years of economic history with an analysis of some of the economic trends, such as the advance of technology, unemployment, decline of private investment opportunities, growth of propaganda, decline of population, etc. With this as background, he faces the problems of the future, -- re-employment,private investment, excess production, foreign trade, agriculture, politics -- all to be covered in the succeeding volumes. Chase has not proved a dependable prophet in international politics (witness his New Western Front, 1939), but in his own field, that of economics, he has a faculty for bringing the subject into the layman's comprehension and has much to offer.
