The Veil of Money

Excerpt

In starting this book I had intended to write something thoroughly elementary, on a level with my Income, an Introduction to Economics. As things have turned out, portions, particularly some of the chapters (eg. Chapter VI) of Part II, are substantially harder than anything to be found there. The book is still an 'introduction' in the sense that my larger works are not, but it is an introduction only suitable for students and other persons prepared to make some intellectual effort. Moreover, the book is general and academic in character. It is not a discussion of current problems. Some readers confronted with it can hardly fail to "regret that the writer has thrown little light, or at all events little direct light, on the grave economic difficulties with which our country is at present confronted" --or some other such cliché. Alas, I must leave them to their regret. An author is entitled to choose in his own topics, and potential readers who prefer other topics have a very simple remedy. I have to thank Professor D. H. Robertson, who very kindly read an early draft of the book in typescript and helped me with a number of valuable comments.
