U.S. Grain Futures Markets of the Interwar Period, 1920-1040

It is especially concerned with addressing, inter alia, the political economic environment within which the regulations were created and administered, how the regulation did and did not affect the functioning of the markets of the day, how the regulation contributed to the contemporary study of contemporary futures markets, and the long term effects of both the study of and the regulation of these important markets.
