The World War Veterans and the Federal Treasury

New York: National Industrial Conference Board, Inc., 1933. First Edition. Analysis, from a public finance perspective, of the Veterans' Bonus controversies of the early 1930s. The NICB (still in existence, but now known simply as "The Conference Board") is a right-leaning think tank comprised of representatives of Fortune 500 corporations. Unsurprisingly, the present report concluded that "...the bases of veteran relief have been broadened unduly, and the costs of such relief increased excessively," essentially confirming the policies of the Hoover Administration that had led to the Bonus Army march of 1932. Octavo (22cm). Green cloth boards, lettered in gilt on spine; 77pp. Tight, Near Fine copy, unmarked and free of significant signs of use.

Price: $35.00
