The World's Monetary Problems.
Two Memoranda.London, Constable, 1921 Stock Code: 134863
NotesFirst combined edition, and first publication of the second memoranda. Gustav Cassel (1866-1944), together with Knut Wicksell and David Davidson, was the founder of modern economics in Sweden. The two memoranda were written by Cassel at the request of the League of Nations, the first for the International Financial Conference in Brussels in 1920 (which was published in the Proceedings of the Conference, vol. V), the second for the Financial Committee of the League (here published for the first time). "The two memoranda are so intimately connected with one another that it has been thought desirable that they should appear together in book-form. It is also hoped that this publication may give a wider circle the opportunity to study the nature of the present monetary difficulties and of the means for restoring sound conditions which I have tried to expound in recent years" (from Cassel's foreword).
