"This is by far the best book yet written about the great depression. It is clever and wise, brilliant and sound, theoretically thorough, and, at the same time, soberly realistic. It can be read (and it has been widely read) by the practical man, who may learn from it the value of abstract reasoning, and it ought to be studied by the theorist, who can gather from it the importance of a fearless analysis of existing facts and politics" (M. J. Bonn, International Affairs).
