Parity Loops the Loop
( 1948-02-01) Shepherd, Geoffrey ; Extension and Experiment Station Publications

( 1948-02-01) Extension and Experiment Station Publications

When we decided how much of World War II to fight with taxes and how much to fight with credit inflation, we set a pattern of economic affairs for several years to follow.

We are now in the third-the first postwar boom.
