This stimulating study undertakes to examine the rise and growing power of economic organizations--labor unions, trusts, governmental agencies--in relation to the ethics of a free society. Doubtful of the economic virtue of many such organizations, Mr. Boulding is particularly apprehensive of the coercive element which follows from this increased organization. A section of comments by a number of critics demonstrates the exploratory rather than dogmatic quality of the project.
