This little book of 14G pages is a
gonuino contribution to the pedagogy
of economics. It contains an "Intro
duction," which discusses the subject
of political economy in high schools;
tion, "A Word to Teachers";
ten brief chapters of exposition under
the heads "Fluctuating Prices,"
"Steady Prices," "Profits," Wages,"
"Speculation," "Industry," "Industrial
Centers," "A Rich Country," "Lux
ury," and "Capital"; thirty-two care
fully planned and suggestive "Exer
cises" placed at the ends of the var
ious chapters; and a two-page "appen-

hands of tho majority of high school
pupils. ' Its mission is rather that of
suggestion to the well Informed, who
cannot fail to find within its pages

that shall be less formal and empty,
more closely in touch with the ob

be urged more strongly than boloro

as our classes in biology, must bo

of the so-called "orthodox" political
economy, and, second, a study of
"economic history." The book deals
almost entirely with the first of these
two kinds of discipline.
As the author himself eays, one of
the chief difficulties in the way of
such economic teaching ia the lack of
efficient teachers. It is indeed doubt
ful if a teacher who has not had ad
vanced economical training could do
much-with a class In this mannor. On
but only incidentally. It should be
done with aa much care as tho "ortho
dox political economy" has been done.
Those who believe In the text book
should give a complete and thoroughly
systematic exposition of the whole sub
ject of economics will also find much
to criticise in this book. The present
writer, however, agrees with tho au
mor that no greater mistake can be
made than to leave a student at tho
end of a brief course in tho high
sshool with the feeling that ho "knows
ia all." Such a result would bo Im
possible if tho method of this book
were followed. It is to bo regretted
that tho book has no index.
