Written originally in 1941, this analysis of the world's plight by an eminent Geneva economist seeks to define "an economic and social structure which releases us from the sterile 'either-or' of collectivism and laissez-faire." In general, the author remains loyal to the ideals of a free market economy, multilateralism and the Redemptio Proletariorum.
