Investigation of concentration of economic power, monograph no. 7, Measurement of the social performance of business. No. 14, Hourly earnings. No. 20, Taxation, recovery, defense. No. 24, Consumer standards. [With] Final report [5 items together]

Washington: GPO, 1940. First item [no. 7]: ix, 207p., one folded chart, plain printed orange wraps, ex libris, covers laid down on heavy cardstock over a maroon binder's tape spine, mild external handling wear, minimal accession marks; all other items respectively xv, 94, xviii, 374, xii, 433, ix, 783) in wraps, edgeworn, dog-eared, dust-soiled, several dampstained, all are handleable. The Final Report is also ex libris and is rather disfigured. These five odd volumes as a small lot. 76th congress, 3d session.

As an example of content, no. 7 briefly touches on foods, textiles, automobiles and communications, three huge companies (only) are measured against "social performance" criteria developed in the text, one page each. Again for example, the Final Report volume points up brand names such as Nylon to have potential "dictatorial control" over markets, but there's no discernable mention of DuPont, the parent company, and lack of indexing contributes to the fog.
