Garden City, Doubleday, Doran (1930). A vision of economic theory from nearly a century ago, in many ways still unfortunately relevant. From the rear cover: " ...Wages can be expected to increase in the future at an even more rapid rate -- provided the leaders of industry actually lead. If wages to not continue to increase, the fault will be a human one -- it will be due to a lack of intelligence." Written with Samuel Crowther, with whom Ford authored two previous books. Owing to the preservation of the rare dust jacket, the book is fine. The jacket itself is very good, with several shallow edge chips and some fading to the spine. Uncommon in dust jacket.
