An Economist's Protest
An Economist's Protest
By Edwin Cannan
King, 1927, 458 pp

A reprint of articles by an English economist in the years from 1914 to 1926. Like Delaisi the writer takes a strong stand against "nationalist" economics, and proves his point by an able exposition of such war and postwar problems as currency, taxation, wages, prices, etc. On the whole the essays have a permanent value and, taken together, make one of the most telling critiques of the existing system.
