The Revolution in World Trade
by Samuel Lubell

This is a hodge-podge of ideas on how to resolve the grave problems that face the United States in the present world struggle. It deals with the difficulties of the American economic position in the world by attacking the better known programs emanating from Washington on how to alienate friends and lose allies in this world struggle. Lubell thinks it can be done by some drastic “reforms” in character of foreign trade and the accommodation of the United States to needs of its friends abroad.

We doubt that it will seriously influence future events or help to resolve any of the basic problems of the present imperialist struggle.
