A Barrington Lecture on the above subject has recently been given
in Cork, Enniscorthy, Limerick and Sligo, and this paper represents
the further elaboration of the material collected for that lecture.
The paper itself is a sequel to certain other lectures, given in 1933,
which have since been published by the Talbot Press under the title of
"The Nemesis of Economic Nationalism and Other Lectures in Applied
Economics." I have also made use of the material contained in an
article on "The Purchasing Power of Irish Free State Farmers in 1933,"
which appeared in the Economic Journal of September, 1934.
I would like to express my great indebtedness to Mr. A. I. Qureshi,
M.Sc. (London), who has made a special study of post-depression agricultural
credit problems in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the
U.S.A., and is now completing, in Trinity College, Dublin, a valuable and
important work on agricultural credit in the last-mentioned country.
Many of the works referred to in the bibliography were acquired by
him in the course of his world-wide travels and investigations, and
made available for my use in the most convenient possible manner.
Read on Thursday, 23rd May, 1935 - This lecture is delivered under the auspices of the Barrington Trust (founded by the bequest of John Barrington Esq.) with the collaboration of the Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry of Ireland.
