Editorial Reviews


Seldom does one come across so small a volume containing so much wealth. -- New York Times Book Review, December 12, 1926

The book makes a distinct contribution to economic evolution... -- The World, October 24, 1926 and The Times Literary Supplement, September 30, 1926

From the Publisher

This book provides interesting insight into the individuals who conducted business in a great civilization of antiquity. Describing how business and finance were carried out in Athens in the fourth century before Christ, it enhances our appreciation of what the Greeks contributed to standards and ideals that set the stage for modern commercial activities. With a pleasant lightness, the author examines the sort of men who controlled trade and finance, their aims and ideals, their standards of honesty, and their methods of doing business.
