- Everybody's Guide to Money Matters | by William Cotton
- The Author, emboldened by a Banking experience of over forty years,
offers this little work to the public in the hope that, elementary
though it be, it may prove acceptable to many persons of both
The work has been prepared chiefly for the use of women, a vast
proportion of whom are brought up in utter ignorance of money matters
in the simplest form, though otherwise they may be highly
The subject, it must be allowed, is not a fascinating one, but
there are periods in the lives of most persons when some knowledge of
money matters may be useful and even necessary.
- Money And Investments | by Montgomery Rollins
- A reference book for the use of those desiring information in the handling of money or the investment thereof
- Getting Your Money's Worth. A Book On Expenditure | by Isabel Ely Lord
- The purpose of this book is intensely practical. From long experience in the School of Household Science and Arts of Pratt Institute, where thousands of women have come for help in all phases of their homemaking problems, and from experience with many other women, young and old, earning a money income or sharing in a marriage partnership, I have learned that one great obstacle in planning expenditure - in budget making - is lack of knowledge of the mere mechanics of it. To those inexperienced in financial record it looks like a complicated and a formidable undertaking, whereas it is neither if approached and carried out in the right way
- The Science Of Wealth | by Amasa Walker
- In the preparation of the following work, it has been my hope,
while furnishing a Manual of Political Economy, which should present
clearly and intelligibly the leading principles of the science, to
afford a full and thorough analysis and description of the different
currencies used in the commerce of the world, especially to exhibit
the nature and effects of the mixed-currency system of the United
- Banking Principles And Practice | by E. L. Stewart Patterson
- It would be impossible within the narrow confines of one volume to deal exhaustively with so extensive a subject as that of Canadian banking practice, but it is hoped that the parts of this subject dealt with herein will be found to be treated with due regard to their relative importance, and that no really essential information has been overlooked. As far as possible, all matters coming within the scope of the Bills of Exchange Act have been purposely omitted, because an intimate knowledge of the act itself is essential to every business man and banker.
- Banking Principles And Practice | by Ray B. Westerfield
- The aim of this book is to give a comprehensive exposition of the theory and practice of commercial banking in the United States
- Canadian Banking Practice | by John T. P. Knight
- "Canadian Banking Practice," as a work of reference, undoubtedly affords information upon almost every conceivable point likely to arise in the course of dealings between banks and their customers, and in addition to the knowledge of usage and custom likely to be acquired by the student of its pages, he will be given an appreciation of the general principles of the law governing banking and commercial transactions.
- Elementary Banking | O. Howard Wolfe
- This book is not the result of any preconceived theories on methods of education in banking. Neither does it make any pretense of being complete as to the subjects covered nor exhaustive in its treatment of them. It is based on fifteen years of practical experience, beginning with a small country bank and extending through eleven years with a large city bank. To this first-hand knowledge of the educational needs of the beginner in banking has been added four years spent in the teaching of banking subjects to young men in the various chapters of the American Institute of Banking. The subject matter presented herewith consists in the main of a series of lectures delivered to a class of younger men in New York Chapter. This book is intended for the young man just entering the bank from school and too new in the business to be able to undertake the regular Institute study course. No other text book so far as the writer knows is designed to meet this particular need. The method of treatment is to explain the underlying principles not only of bank accounting, but of the everyday transactions that are common to all forms of banking. The danger of the small bank is that it tends to narrow the horizon of the young banker, while in the large bank the beginner too often regards his institution as something inhuman that moves along as entirely independent of him or his associates as if it were a part of the solar system. Another difficulty confronting the beginner is that when he does feel the need of instruction he is apt to fall a victim to the advice of well - meaning but untrained "instructors," who attempt to teach him banking by explaining the use of accounting forms.
- Banks And Bankers | by Daniel Hardcastle, Jun
- The object of the following pages is to explain, in a plain and familiar manner, what money, Banking, and currency, properly speaking, are; and how it behoves us to deal with them at present in this country. I conceive that this object may be realized in a manner the most satisfactory, and that the information conveyed will be rendered valuable to the greatest number of persons, by giving an intelligible account, clear of all technical expressions, of the doctrines of the leading authorities upon the subject, the different systems propounded, and the results of the efforts that have been made to carry them into execution.
- Banks And Banking | by H. T. Easton
- This small volume consists of a series of notes on the growth and development of banking in this country. The author has endeavoured to show how the deposit of money in a bank has developed into a complex system of finance, and also how capital, wielding an immense power in the present day, is largely under the management and control of our great banking institutions. The study of banking is of great importance when we consider how dependent the commercial world is upon the existence of a perfectly sound system. To understand the why and wherefore of credit, which forms the basis of banking, is an essential study for those who have adopted it as their profession.
- Money, Banking, And Finance | by Albert S. Bolles
- Excellent books on the best methods of bank bookkeeping already exist, also other books on the theories and history of money and banking. In a well-organized course on banking this book should fill an intermediate place between those described; it is the pioneer of its kind. It is designed especially for three classes of students, or readers: those who intend to devote themselves to the business of banking; those who are thus engaged; and those who are studying the history and theories of banking.EOB

- The Law Of Banks And Banking | by John Maxcy Zane
- Including acceptance, demand and notice of dishonor upon commercial paper with an appendix containing the federal statutes applicable to national banks
- Banking Practice And Foreign Exchange | by Howard McNayr Jefferson
- The authors of this volume have aimed to describe and explain the best practices that American banking experience has yet produced. The chapters on "Banking Practice," written by an educated and experienced banker, represent the fruits of personal experience as well as of study and observation. This part of the volume, it is hoped, will be found to contain suggestions for which men who have been long in the banking business will be grateful, and should also prove a most valuable aid to any young man desiring to fit himself either for a banking career or for general business.
- Organized Banking | by Eugene E. Agger
- This book grew out of a part of a course on the subject of money and banking given by the author at Columbia University. It was written under stress of numerous other duties, hence the author himself feels called upon to confess that in several directions the book leaves something to be desired. But it is hoped that it will be helpful to the student and to the general reader in obtaining a little more comprehensive and more closely coordinated knowledge of the broader relations of modern banking. For use in the classroom it is recommended that a good book of readings like W. Hamilton's Readings in Money and Banking, or H. G. Moulton's Principles of Money and Banking be used to supply illustrative, concrete material as a basis for further discussion.
- The ABC Of Banks And Banking | by George M. Coffin
- The object of this little volume is to give to the public a simple and concise explanation of the principles and practice of banking in the United States. It is designed to appeal to the reader outside as well as inside of a bank. It is by no means the last word or every word about banking. It may be said that it is a primer covering a field that has hitherto been somewhat neglected. In view of the growth of commercial and economic education the author hopes that the book will be serviceable to teachers and students as well as business men
- Elementary Banking | by John Franklin Ebersole
- With the idea of providing a practical and logical course of study for these newcomers in the banking profession, as well as a foundation for the Institute Standard courses of study, a text-book covering the elements of banking and law seemed to be desirable. J. F. Ebersole of the University of Minnesota, who had been teaching an elementary banking course in Minneapolis Chapter, was selected to prepare such a book, based on the lectures given in Minneapolis Chapter. That book has been a distinct success. The present text entitled "Elementary Banking" is based on the book just referred to. However, the original text literature has been completely revised and brought to date, in some cases being rewritten and rearranged, and, in addition, four chapters on bank bookkeeping and accounting have been added.
- Money And Banking | by William A. Scott
- The present book is the outcome of ten years' experience in teaching large classes in the University of Wisconsin, and is presented to the public in the hope that students in other institutions as well as the average citizen who wishes to understand this subject may find it useful. Its subject is modern currency, and it aims to analyze and explain the complex media of exchange of the great nations of the present day in such a way as to reveal the nature and workings of each element and the relations between them all.
- Money And Banking | by John Thom Holdsworth
- There are many excellent manuals treating of the history and principles of money, of credit, and of the history, principles and practices of banking, but the author has not found any single book which presents in a concise way the whole general subject of money and banking, so arranged as to make it suitable for use as a textbook. The curricula of many schools and colleges limit the time given to the study of this subject to one year, and there has long been a demand for a textbook presenting the essentials of money and banking in such a way that it could be covered in that time. It is hoped that this book may in some measure meet this need.
- Manual Of Canadian Banking | by H. M. P. Eckardt
- One of the strong points of the branch system of banking is that it brings all the offices operating under it, even the most remote and the smallest of them, into subjection to carefully devised codes of rules, ensuring reasonable uniformity of practice. The system also ensures expert and skilful guidance for the banking offices of every district, and the employment everywhere of the most modern and effective safeguards against fraud or dishonesty. This Manual essays to outline the methods and practices obtaining in Canada.
- Other People's Money And How The Bankers Use It | by Louis D. Brandeis
- While Louis D. Brandeis's series of articles on the money trust was running in Harper's Weekly many inquiries came about publication in more accessible permanent form. Even without such urgence through the mail, however, it would have been clear that these articles inevitably constituted a book, since they embodied an analysis and a narrative by that mind which, on the great industrial movements of our era, is the most expert in the United States. The inquiries meant that the attentive public recognized that here was a contribution to history. Here was the clearest and most profound treatment ever published on that part of our business development which, as President Wilson and other wise men have said, has come to constitute the greatest of our problems. The story of our time is the story of industry...

- Currency And Banking | by Bonamy Price
- This work is founded on the view of Currency and Banking taken in the Lectures on the Principles of Currency, delivered at Oxford, and published in 1869, and also in other writings. I have met with no reason which, in my opinion, requires that the views therein expressed should be altered.
- Chinese Currency And Banking | by Srinivas R. Wagel
- This volume is but a sequel to my "Finance in China." In that book I tried to give a bird's-eye view of the whole situation of trade and economics in the country. Owing to the number of subjects that had to be dealt with, the treatment was necessarily brief. The situation in China at the moment is full of interesting possibilities. Reform is in the air, and the necessity for it is being felt more keenly than at any past time. No one interested in this country, in any manner, can escape at least the thought of some scheme, or schemes, tending towards the reformation of China's government and finances.
- Banking And Business | by H. Parker Willis, George W. Edwards
- In this volume the authors have undertaken to present an outline of modern American banking in its relation to other business. Their intention has been to prepare a university and college text that would be of service in teaching those elements of banking which are most needed in the schools of business and commerce now in process of development at many of our universities. The arrangement of topics and the general direction of the discussion corresponds, broadly speaking, to the organization of the work in the introductory course in banking in the School of Business of Columbia University.
- Bookkeeping: Banking | by George W. Miner
- As banking is a highly specialized subject, it is treated in a separate book.
- The Theory And History Of Banking | by Charles F. Dunbar
- The preparation of the following chapters is the result of the need of some convenient statement of ordinary banking operations, felt by the writer when lecturing upon banking to a large class of students in the elements of political economy. To the chapters devoted to such operations it was found useful to add a series of historical chapters on certain of the great banks and banking systems, partly for the easy illustration of theory and partly to supply the want of any good manual of banking history.
- Modern Banking; Commercial And Credit Paper
- A New, Authoritative, and Standard Reference Work in Five Parts Covering the Entire Field Relative to Modern Banking and Credit Practice; Bank Acceptances; Trade Acceptances; Commercial Banking and Credits; Banking Under the Federal Reserve; The Federal Reserve System with Amendments Rulings, Regulations, Opinions of Counsel on the Subjects of Bank and Trade Acceptances and Commercial Banking to 1920; American and Foreign Discount Markets; American and Foreign Credit Systems ; etc.. etc. Complete with Forms, Agreements, Records on the Subject of Acceptances, Commercial Banking and Credits; Dollar Credits for Financing Foreign Trade; Laws Relating to Negotiable Instruments, their Taxation; Digest of Bill of Lading Laws; U. S. Warehouse Laws and their Relation to Acceptances and Commercial Banking; Investments; Foreign Financing; etc., etc.
- The Romance And Tragedy Of Banking | by Thomas P. Kane
- Problems And Incidents Of Governmental Supervision Of National Banks
- The English Manual Of Banking | by Arthur Crump
- The following pages are the result of a revision and enlargement of a small book on banking and kindred subjects which was published in 1866 under the title of ' Banking Currency and the Exchanges' Exceedingly imperfect as that little work was in many respects, the public absorbed nearly one thousand copies, and that satisfactory result, all things considered, has been we think due almost entirely to the fact that it was a book about banks and banking, written after going over the ground and ascertaining by years of experience among bankers what the uninitiated wanted to know on the subject.
- The National Banks | by H. W. Richardson
- This review is, primarily, a collection from official sources of the main facts concerning the origin and practical working of the National Banking System.
- The Elements Of Banking | by Henry Dunning Macleod
- The purpose of the following work is to exhibit in the simplest language possible the mechanism of the great system of Credit, Banking, and the Foreign Exchanges, and to explain the reasoning upon which is founded the Principle of Currency, which I published in 1856 - That the true method of controlling credit and the paper Currency is by adjusting the Kate of Discount by the Bullion in the Bank and the State of the Foreign Exchanges - which is now universally acknowledged to be the true one, and which is now adopted by the Bank of England and by every bank in the world.
- The History, Principles And Practice Of Banking | by J. W. Gilbart
- Gilbart on Banking has become a classic. Gilbart himself was a giant among the pioneers of early joint-stock banking. He started his banking career some thirteen years before joint-stock banks were even possible in England, with the exception of the Bank of England. He took an active share in the task of raising these banks from the position of outcasts, barely tolerated and jealously restricted, to one, at all events, somewhere on the same plane as the older type of bank.
- A Financial History Of Texas | by Edmund Thornton Miller
- The increasing number of histories of Texas and of books about Texas testify to the| appeal which the history of the state lias alike to its sons and daughters and to those who are foreign to its soil. Texas has been under the flags of France, Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America and the United States, and the scroll which records these changing fortunes has attracted the novelist, the political historian, the student of imperialism and of colonizing movements, and finally the economic and financial historian. Just as its political history is the most fascinating of any of the American states, so its financial history is varied, frequently spectacular, usually interesting, and always illustrative of either the principles or the fallacies of public finance.
- Business Finance | by William Henry Lough
- A practical study of financial management in private business concerns.
- Problems In Private Finance | by Charles W. Gerstenberg
- These problems were originally planned for classes in Private Finance in the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance of New York University. Some of them have been used over a long period of time, having been submitted to the students in mimeograph form. As the value of solving problems of this kind became more apparent, new problems were added and it was decided, for economy's sake, to print them in book form. The problems are to be used with Materials of Corporation Finance and Syllabus of Corporation Finance, by the same author. The chapters in this problem book correspond with the chapters in the syllabus.

- Economics In Two Volumes: Volume I. Economic Principles | by Frank A. Fetter
- This text makes practical application of the theories treated in "Principles of Economics" to such matters as money, banking, international trade, labor organizations, agricultural economics, trusts, taxation, insurance, immigration, and similar topics. The book was completely revised in 1922; hence it considers economic matters in the light of the changed conditions following the World War. The volume is equipped with charts, diagrams, statistical tables, reference reading lists, and other numerous helps for both the teacher and the student.
- Economics In Two Volumes: Volume II. Modern Economic Problems | by Frank A. Fetter
- In this revised edition every chapter has been rewritten with reference to the momentous events that have filled the years since 1916, when the first edition of this work appeared. The statements of facts and figures have so far as possible been brought down to date. The materials formerly constituting the first two chapters have been distributed under other headings. New sections appear in every chapter, and new chapters have been added in the treatment of money, insurance, transportation, and socialism. Numerous charts have been added which, it is hoped, will be helpful to the reader. Most of these have been reproduced from charts prepared for the use of the author's classes, and others have been taken from various sources. A brief list of references has been appended to each chapter.
- Outlines of Public Finance | by Merlin Harold Hunter
- Interest in fiscal problems has grown rapidly. Twenty-five years ago the subject matter of Public Finance aroused comparatively little discussion. While public expenditures were continually on the increase, wealth and population were increasing more rapidly, so that no greater per capita burden was felt by the citizen. To-day the situation is different. The demands upon the public purse have become so large, because of extended and increased governmental activities, that the burden of taxes has begun to be felt, and in many cases it has begun to cut deeply. A few decades ago, therefore, the principles of Public Finance primarily commanded the interest of public officials, while at present the citizen upon whom the tax burdens fall is also interested. He is beginning to ask what is being done with the funds he has paid in taxes, whether he is paying more than his share, whether the funds are properly handled, and what can be done to secure a better fiscal system.
- Elementary Economics | by Charles Manfred Thompson
- With Special Reference To Social And Business Conditions In The United States
- Commerce and Finance | by O. M. Powers
- The book is a combination of history and economics. It relates to both the past and present. In the first 146 pages of the book, embracing a history of commerce and of banking, a foundation is laid for the proper consideration of the subjects which follow. In dealing with historical facts we have aimed to show why commerce flowed in certain channels at certain times and the influences which have affected its progress and development. In the discussion of the various subjects which follow, the aim has constantly been to reach the basic principles underlying each, to discover the theories upon which business is done. Necessarily the subjects could not be treated in exhaustive detail in a work of this size, but the most important features are set forth, and a basis is thus furnished for those who wish to pursue any special line of study farther into its details and intricacies.
- Source Book In Economics | by Frank Albert Fetter
- Selected and edited for the use of college classes.
- The Dogs And The Fleas | by Frederic Scrimshaw
- Henry Ward Beecher, in a sermon shortly before his death, said America was going through a period of disgrace. This was true; for there had come to pass, what the prophetic Lincoln had foretold, that, as the result of the war, monopolies had been enthroned, that had filled the land with corruption and imperilled the liberties of the people. Today the period of disgrace is worse than then, for the corrupt tree which was then bearing so luxuriant a crop has had several years more in which to develop its fruit-bearing capacity.
- The Principles Of Economics With Applications To Practical Problems | by Frank A. Fetter
- This book had its beginning ten years ago in a series of brief discussions supplementing a text used in the classroom. Their purpose was to amend certain theoretical views even then generally questioned by economists, and to present most recent opinions on some other questions. These critical comments evolved into a course of lectures following an original outline, and were at length reduced to manuscript in the form of a stenographic report made from day to day in the class-room. The propositions printed in italics were dictated to the class, to give the key-note to the main divisions of the argument. Repeated revisions have shortened the text, cut out many digressions and illustrations, and remedied many of the faults both of thought and of expression; but no effort has been made to conceal or alter the original and essential character of the simple, informal, classroom talks by teacher to student. To this origin are traceable many conversational phrases and local illustrations, and the occasional use of the personal form of address...
- Introduction To Economics | by Frank O'Hara
- The attempt is made in the following pages to present the elementary principles of economics clearly and in a small compass. The author trusts that this presentation in brief form will prove helpful not only to the general reader but also to the student who is making a beginning in economics and who often finds that the diffuseness of the text serves to obscure the principles which he is trying to grasp.
- Political Economy For The People | by George Tucker
- The following pages are, in substance, a compendium of the lectures on Political Economy delivered by the author in the University of Virginia, with such alterations and additions as his further experience and reflection have suggested. They are now offered to the public under the belief that the subject is one of peculiar importance to a free people, whose will often directs and controls the policy of the State; and who, when they do not exert that influence, ought to know how far the sentiments of the candidates for their favor are in accordance with the true principles of national prosperity.
- On The Modern Science Of Economics | by Henry Dunning MacLeod
- It is a matter of common notoriety that while economists, in this country at least, have during the last three-quarters of a century achieved a series of great successes, the science of Political Economy itself, or Economics as it may more aptly, and is now becoming more usually termed, is in a most unsatisfactory state; and, indeed, a very large number of persons deny that there is any intelligible science of Economics at all...
- Indian Finance. Three Essays | by Henry Fawcett
- The three Essays which form the chief contents of this volume were published last year in the Nineteenth Century, and I wish to express my best thanks to my friend, Mr. James Knowles, the Editor of that Review, for his kind courtesy in permitting their republication. In some introductory remarks I have endeavoured to show the importance of placing the present system of financial control on a different basis. Although it is generally supposed that the entire control over the expenditure of the revenues of India was vested in the Council of the Secretary of State by the Government of India Act of 1858, yet by an Act which was passed in 1869 the tenure of the office of the Members of Council was materially modified, and the discussion which took place when this Act was passing through Parliament plainly shows that the law had been left in a state of such extreme uncertainty by the Act of 1858 as to make inquiry into the entire subject by a Parliamentary Committee urgently necessary.

text-book. It contains a simple outline of those things which are

- International Finance | by Hartley Withers
- Finance, in the sense in which it will be used in this book, means
the machinery of money dealing. That is, the machinery by which money
which you and I save is put together and lent out to people who want
to borrow it. Finance becomes international when our money is lent to
borrowers in other countries, or when people in England, who want to
start an enterprise, get some or all of the money that they need, in
order to do so, from lenders oversea. The biggest borrowers of money,
in most countries, are the Governments, and so international finance
is largely concerned with lending by the citizens of one country to
the Governments of others, for the purpose of developing their wealth,
building railways and harbours or otherwise increasing their power to
- The Subvention In The State Finances Of Pennsylvania | by Frederic B. Garver
- The subvention has been used in England and in the United States to
equalize revenue resources between state (central) and local
governments; to equalize the burden of supporting a given service
between different localities; and to gain for the central authorities
power of supervision over local administration. Finally in the United
States it has been used to aid semi-public institutions of an
eleemosynary character. An indepth dessertation work on the subvention
State Finances Of Pennsylvania follows.
