“This book supplies a comprehensive account of the impact of war on a democratic country. It is an analysis of Canada's experience during the first two years of war, written by a leading economist in a manner that makes it as interesting and clear to the layman as to the specialist. Here is a survey of the industrial, financial, and labour policies of the Government, and information on all the many wartime controls over commodities, prices, and wages.The principles of war organization and finance are discussed in relation to concrete problems, such as:
Mobiliaztion of man-power
Civilian consumption in wartime
The new price-and-wage ceiling
Aid to Britain
The Lease-Lend Act, etc....” - from the dj.
