-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 States.
-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.
-Canadian Banking Practice | by John T. P. Knight
Banking Practice Questions and Answers. A Persian philosopher, being ashed by what means he had acquired so much knowledge, answered, "By not being prevented by shame from asking questions where I was ignorant."
-Practical Banking | by Albert S. Bolles
A detailed, comprehensive guide to banking practices
-Introduction To Public Finance | by Carl Copping Plehn
This Introduction to Public Finance is intended to be an elementary text-book. It contains a simple outline of those things which are necessary to prepare the student for independent research
-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 produce.
-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.
