A collection of essays by the distinguished British economist and statistician Sir Josiah Charles Stamp, first Baron Stamp (1880-1941), variously responding to the effect of the changing price level on social and industrial problems, and the relation between gold and the price level.

'As an economist, Stamp made a major contribution to the economics of taxation and to the understanding of tax returns as a statistical source.' In addition to his direct contributions to economics, Stamp also served in a series of prestigious public positions including Director of the Bank of England and President of the Royal Statistical Society as well as various notable advisory positions to the British government. 'It is not often that the academic and practical qualities he possessed in such high degree are to be found in one man' (New Palgrave).
