"THE CRISIS IS STILL IN FULL SWING WITH NO IMMEDIATE PROSPECTS OF RECOVERY"
EINZIG, Paul. The World Economic Crisis 1929-1931. London: Macmillan, 1931. Octavo, original red cloth, original dust jacket. $900.
First edition of Einzig's contemporary analysis of the worldwide economic depression that preceded World War II, in original dust jacket.
Einzig was both a well-known financial journalist and an author who published more than 50 books on financial topics as well as a number of scholarly articles. Einzig did some of his best research during the long period leading up to the Second World War, reporting on Nazi Germany's exploitative exchange rate policies toward the East as well as eventually breaking the scandal of the Swiss National Bank's purchase of looted gold from the Reichsbank in 1943. This work focuses on the global economic depression that preceded and, in many ways, led to the outbreak of World War II.
Book very nearly fine, dust jacket with light wear and toning to extremities. A near-fine copy.
