Leading Estonian Economist


Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1953. Original dark blue boards; [8], 163 pp. Second Edition. Francis M. Bator’s personal copy with his name and Cambridge 1954” in fountain pen on the flyleaf, several pages of heavy underlining and insightful marginalia. Along with 2 letter-size pages of hand-written notes pertaining to the book by Bator; type script copy of a review of this book by economist Helen B. Lamb (1906–1975); and an additional 3 page type script review of this book (by Bator?). Very good, faded spine and light bumping to corners (and of course, Bator’s comments throughout). Included ephemera folded and merely good. Ragnar Nurkse (1907–1959) was an Estonian economist specializing in the fields of international finance and economic development. He wrote frequently on Bretton Woods and the international monetary order. In this book he addresses 2nd and 3rd world countries in the international economic order: the vicious circle of poverty, source of capital, and trends in the movement of international capital. Francis M. Bator’s included notes and ephemera help us understand his position vis a vis Nurkse’s arguments.
