PREFACE.

THE state of affairs resulting from the Great War has stimulated inquiry into economic questions, not only among University students, but also among that much larger class of persons which feels drawn to take an intelligent interest in financial, industrial, and commercial affairs. The present work is intended to meet the demand thus arising for a new book which shall cover the whole field of current inquiry rather than present the results of original research on some particular question.

The author has been guided in his treatment of the subject by the syllabus of the London University Intermediate Examinations in Economics and in Commerce, but not to the extent of diminishing the value of the book for general purposes.

Some readers may like to begin with Appendices I. and II., and may also like to postpone the reading of the first two chapters, which cannot at first be fully understood by those to whom Economics is a fresh subject.

The Bibliography that follows the Appendices will provide ample material for further study. The author wishes to acknowledge his indebtedness to most of the writers there mentioned.
