Industry and Trade, Volume 1
British economist ALFRED MARSHALL (1842-1924) was one of the most prominent thinkers of his age, and his work influenced half a century of financial philosophy. Though the bulk of his work was completed before the turn of the 20th century, the global ramifications of World War I prompted him to reconsider his theories on international economics, and in 1919 he published the two-volume Industry and Trade. Here, in Volume I, he discusses. . the relationship between trade and industry . the social and political issues that thwarted and encouraged industrialization in Europe and America . technical influences on industrial economies . problems arising from marketing and massive retail commerce . modern finance and business organization . and more.
