Mr. Pitkin is an eminent journalist who has written journalistically about many topics and with great success. He here offers his views as to our future in relationship to the capitalistic system. His book is full of truisms, and he brings himself to the view that the capitalistic system must carry on in the United States, but that, of course, it must modify itself to changing conditions. He looks on the middle class as the hope of humanity, at present being ground to dust through the desperate rich and desperate poor.
