America Faces the Future

Excerpt

No public question is of more importance than the issue raised by cyclical business disaster bringing misery to millions and threatening the security of the social order. The causes and consequences of such calamities and the projects advanced by thoughtful citizens for avoiding at least their worst evils, therefore, deserve consideration by all who hope to teach or lead in this generation. Hence it follows that, apart from the contributions of the Editor, this volume of papers on depressions and planning constitutes a highly significant document. The weight of the authorities quoted, the concreteness of their proposals, and the realistic character of their reasoning all combine to make the book an invaluable guide for current discussion and a permanent work of reference. To the gentlemen and associations whose papers are reprinted here and to Dr. Henry Goddard Leach, Editor of The Forum, the Editor of this volume owes debts that cannot be paid by mere words in a preface.
