This revised edition of the original 1923 text first appeared in 1929, a decade after the end of WWI. The war left Great Britain burdened with debt and faced with the dire issues of unemployment and unstable domestic and foreign markets. In this title, A.W. Kirkaldy gives a brief but thoroughly detailed account and analysis of the history of economics, particularly concentrating upon the economic development of England. His work concludes with an examination of how the economic principles of England s past can be applied and adapted in the post-war world. The Romance of Trade is a valuable resource for students interested in economics and economic history."
