JAMES DYSART MAGEE, Ph.D.,
PROFESSOR OF ECONOMICS, NEW YORK UNIVERSITY ;
This book is frankly patterned after Professor Charles W. Gerstenberg's “Materials of Corporation Finance" and the syllabus and problems used with it. Here syllabus, materials, and problems are brought together in one book.
My experience in teaching banking has convinced me that the best approach is to consider present conditions and the history which has led up to them.
My obligations to others are many. From Professor J. Lawrence Laughlin, I received my training in banking history and theory. From Mr. Charles W. Dupuis, President of the Citizens National Bank, a colleague at the University of Cincinnati, I learned much about bank management and operation.
I have been fairly diligent in getting ideas and suggestions for problems from all of the standard treatises on banking. I have found the Federal Reserve Bulletin a veritable mine of information on banking topics.
I am indebted to Professor George W. Edwards for material on present conditions of banking in Europe. The American Acceptance Council, the General Motors Acceptance Corporation, and numerous banks throughout the country have kindly permitted me to reproduce material and forms.
