International Cartels
International Cartels
By Erwin Hexner
University of North Carolina Press, 1945, 555 pp.

A former SCAP official argues that the appearance and persistence of cartels in most major countries indicate that it would be futile to try to eliminate them. Instead, he favors international control of cartels and commodity agreements as a major means of "rationalized international economic planning." The author's style is heavily marked by his years in government and business, and somewhat scarred by his contact with the writings of economists.
