"To the economist, to the general reader, most of all, perhaps, to the lecturer and the student we can recommend the book very warmly."

"His suggestion of a new and more stable standard of value is so important, though he says that years of education of the public must precede any attempt to put it into practice, that we have obtained permission of the Macmillan Company, publishers of the book, to present here an abstract of the professor's proposal.
