A spirited, albeit eccentric polemic written in the year of the 1929 Wall Street crash by the Indian journalist Frederic E. Holsinger, former managing editor of the Indian Daily Mail, Bombay. The book was reviewed positively at the time of publication in The New Statesmen and Nation as 'A book which in simple and non-technical makes a sensational exposure of what is really wrong in the economic system and of the fallacies and contradictions in the teachings of the Economists'.
