Abstract

Book Reviews A Ph.D. student at Wisconsin, Young later helped revise the best-selling Outlines of Economics of Richard T. Ely (1908). Of the twelve chapters for which he was responsible, one on the social dividend is reprinted here. The next item, “Socialism,” comprising three extracts from a set of lecture notes for a course at Washington University in 1912, is more interesting. The editors have rightly included Young’s deservedly famous contributions of “Economics,” “Capital,” and “Supply and Demand” to the fourteenth edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, but they have unfortunately excluded the complementary pieces on land, rent, labor, wages, and price, on the ground that one of the editors had republished the whole set elsewhere (Sandilands 1990, 115–60). Young’s contributions to the Book of Popular Science published by the Grolier Society in 1924 and in a revised edition in 1929 take up over half of this volume. The most interesting of the twenty-six chapters included are the six on money and credit: although they whet the appetite for the work that Young is thought to have been writing at the time of his death, they do not, in the opinion of this reviewer, live up to the promise
