In nontechnical language, John Kenneth Galbraith supplies the underlying economic ideas which will help readers understand how particular controls affect the general operation of the economy. He shows why price controls during World War II worked as well as they did and he analyzes the criteria for effective price control both under a fully mobilized economy and under limited mobilization.
