Debt: Private and Public, Good and Bad by Sir Ernest Benn

Status: Almost Complete (v.2)

Thank you to myhumangetsme for requesting this EPUB on the Mises Forums.


Fix Notes:

Page 49: Housing

The House-ing Acts of 1930 and ’31 permitted local authorities to borrow for eighty years to build houses, a more doubtful proceeding since few would be found to imagine that the houses will be acceptable to anybody in eighty years’ time.

Page 96, 111: right single quote before "bus" and "buses" (?) (UNCHANGED)

The average housewife, for example, peels 4,380 potatoes in a year; our trams carry the equivalent of the total population of Asia; the London ’buses and coaches convey, in the course of a year, almost as many people as there are in the world; 35s. is spent in this country every second of the day and night in the purchase of confectionery; 400,000,000 transactions are carried through in this little island every day of the year, each of them involving the sale and purchase of paper and so on.
