This richly illustrated and well documented book gives a full picture of the economic development of the Polish Republic during the seventeen years which elapsed since the independence of Poland was proclaimed by Marshal Pilsudski on October 11th, 1918. The author, in his capacity of President of the greatest and most important of Polish banks, proceeds from a description of the general conditions of the state of the country at the close of the great war, from which it suffered almost a complete destruction of economic resources, through an account of the work of reconstruction so brilliantly accomplished by the united efforts of the Polish nation, to a statement of the position as it is today.
The author discusses concisely but adequately the national finances, banking, production, distribution, foreign and overseas trade, communications and transport and closes with an extremely interesting chapter on the measures which Poland undertook in order to overcome the crisis which overwhelmed world economy in 1930. Numerous diagrams and full index enhance the great usefulness of this work which should be indispensible to the banker, maunfacturer, and trader, contemplating business with Poland, and to all students of economics and international affairs.
