Page 104: par. 4: manipulation

Page 169: par. 2: formerly

Fiberglass has appeared in a variety of uses that were formely monopolized by steel—auto bodies, for example.

Page 173: par. 3: administrative

Dr. Means’ concept of “admistrative inflation,” in fact, under analysis seems little else but cost-push inflation; and he concedes, perhaps inadvertently, [...]
