Format: Hardcover
THE BLACK MARKET, from MARSHALL B CLINARD, dated Feb 1952, at the
University of Wisconsin, is an extensive, comprehensive study of an
insider that doesn't hold back his own personal opinion concerning
the behavior of Americans within the framework of the Second World
War, during which price price controls and rationing were imposed on
consumers and businesses alike, to curtail the insidious effects of
inflation on the country's population and its ability to sustain the
Allied war efforts against the Axis countries (Germany, Italy,
Japan, etc.)

The upshot of the discussion, is that unless there is a moral,
ethical, spiritual, human bond between individuals comprising the
citizenry of the USA, the peril of the USA failing in the war is
more likely, and the extent of injury, death and pain so much
greater among its weaker and more vulnerable population strata.
"United we stand, divided we fall" is the key phrase here.

The author compares the needs of a country in wartime in matters of
gasoline, rubber, steel, meat, sugar and more with the violation
behavior of 1 in every 2 businesses in matters of ration coupons,
and participation in the black market, such as by selling off, at
premium prices, one or more of the controlled commodities to eager
buyers.

Every accounting trick in the book conceivable is used to defeat the
government's intentions of price controls, and commodity flowing
evenly and fairly to the needy population. Side payments in cash (
doing business of the books, obviously), watering down the various
food products (sausage, olive oil, canned fruit, fish, etc.
