Unpaginated prelims & 587pp. Book slightly canted, shaken. Red titles on dark green cloth, frayed, bumped corners. Random foxing spots [endpapers, prelims, edges], else uniform tanning. At the beginning of the book the author makes it clear, "If you are a 'Labour Supporter', this is not the book for you, but if you are 'Rabidly Anti-Labour', this book will cause you to think." Divided into 'books', chaptered and subchaptered [obviously blaming the socialist side of politics for all the world's problems], contents include: Protection and unemployment, Free trade/Unemployment, High wages/Unemployment, Overseas borrowing, Population, Prosperity, Disarmament and unemployment, An overlooked aspect of Marx, Power of banks, Summing up, War debts, Present Australian scene [read 1931]. The author claims because he is "practically a poor man", he could only defray the cost of 1000 copies. Blah Blah Blah!! [note the publishing assistance]. Book weight approx. 580g.
