A Bit on the Side: Price Fixing, Rationing, Profiteering and Black Markets in Australia and Britain, 1939¿1945
This book is designed to provide a deeper understanding of rationing and price control in wartime Australia with an eye to contemporary developments in Britain. It is by no means an economic history. It breaks new ground in this little known and understood aspect of Australia's society during World War Two.
A Bit on the Side: price fixing, rationing, profiteering and black markets in Australia and Britain, 1939-1945 seeks to explore Australia's economic and social landscape to gauge the extent of black markets, profiteering and wartime theft throughout the period under review.
