Product Overview

"What is the meaning of all this that we see? Is this wealth or is it poverty?" asks Stephen Leacock in this clear-headed and highly readable study of work, wages, and social utopia.

"The world seems filled with money and short of goods -- while even in the midst of this very scarcity a new luxury has broken out," he states. "The capitalist rides in his ten thousand dollar motorcar. The seven-dollar-a-day artisan plays merrily on his gramophone in the broad daylight of his "afternoon" that is saved, like all else, by being ''borrowed'' from the "morning!""

While he gained his fame as a writer from such amusing books as "Frenzied Fiction," "Nonsense Novels," and "Literary Lapses," Stephen Leacock (1869-1944) was also Professor of Political Economy at McGill University, Montreal.
