Economic Consequences of the Second World War
By Lewis L. Lorwin
Random, 1941, 510 pp.
The first two parts of this book present a lucid, if conventional, contrast of the Nazi and democratic systems in terms of ideology, politics and economics. Part three outlines the consequences of a Nazi victory and part four explores the less predictable outcome of a democratic victory. After reviewing some current proposals for postwar political and economic organization, the author presents his own plan, "A World New Deal," in part five. This plan calls for increased governmental direction of economic processes. In spite of its title, the book deals at considerable length with general political and economic issues and with wartime developments.
