Description - The Charles Ilfeld Company by W.J. Parish
In a pioneering study of far western commercial enterprise from Santa Fe Trail days to the present, detailed company records reveal the merchants' solutions of monetary exchange, balance of trade, and transportation problems, in depression and prosperity. Finally, the author traces the defeat of mercantile capitalism by modern specialization. New materials give valuable insights into the history of economic development in the western hemisphere. An important book for economists and historians, its frontier stories will delight less specialized readers.
