Front Cover
Bedford/St. Martin's, Mar 15, 1995 - History - 168 pages
Louis Brandeis published Other People's Money in 1914 to warn of the dangers of the "money trust" - the extensive control a few powerful banks exercised over the nation's money supply and American industry.

Photographs, a chronology, questions for consideration, a bibliography, and an index are also provided.
