S. E. Harris '20, lecturer on Economics, will speak on "The Banking Crisis and What Next" at a mass meeting to be held this evening by the Harvard Inquiry at 7.30 o'clock in the Lowell House Common Room. He will take up the recent history of American banking in its relation to the national bank holiday, discuss the proposed emergency measures, and examine the case for inflation, which he, in company with many other economists, favors, provided always that it be limited.
Second Special Meeting
This meeting is the second on an emergency issue which the Inquiry has arranged within the past week. The previous one, on the subject of "Jehol--World Crisis?", was conducted by E. S. Mason, associate professor of Economics, C. J. Friedrich, associate professor of Government, and Colonel O. L. Spaulding, U.S.A., professor of Military Science.
Dr. Harris is the author of "Monetary Problems of the British Empire," which appeared last year, and has written a new book on "Twenty Years of Federal Reserve Policy." The latter book, however, is still in the press.
