Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a gem of a book about economic theories of underconsumption. It is thoughtful, careful, comprehensive, balanced, insightful, and very nicely written. The book is old, and theories of underconsumption are now largely defunct. But if you're interested in portrayals of the problematics of production/consumption balance in economic thought, this book is a fascinating critical analysis of all the relevant views (Malthus, Sismondi, Marx, Hobson, Luxemburg, Baran and Sweezy, and many more).
