National Wages Policy in War and Peace
National Wages Policy in War and Peace
By B. C. Roberts
Allen and Unwin, Macmillan, 1958, 180 pp.

The author, Reader in Industrial Relations at the London School of Economics, reviews the experience of national wage policies gained under the varying conditions of war and peace and concludes that a centrally administered national wages policy is not effective as a means of preventing inflation. Examples are drawn from experience in Britain, the United States, Sweden, Australia, the Netherlands and Germany.
