JF Ptak Science Books Quick Post
This is an interesting pamphlet (printed ca. 1933/4) that makes a lot of good points in what seems to be our current post-salient world, except that the author's presentation makes it all look kooky, borderline, Outsider-y, and therefore dismissable. But the good points are there, and no doubt a lot of the numbers seem as though they can be true--it is just that the presentation is about as actionable as listening to some guy sitting in a shopping cart under the overpass and wearing cardboard box signs while delivering his message in bolts of screams--the medium really can be the message, or the mess. And this is just a mess, true or not, which was too bad.
(This is another one of those pamphlety works that seem as though they were very popular--and perhaps so, except that its popularity did not translate into any sort of existing longevity--there is only one copy of this work located in WorldCat/OCLC, and the only two online references to the pamphlet are for the listings for in the the library found by WorldCat. So, popularly, this work is no longer "around". It is interesting to note that for the few dozen Google hits on "Quack Economic Remedies" there are several referring to presidential programs, with those including a wide range of politics, and include Obama, Nixon, and Wilson.)
