You have to hand it to Borsodi. He looks at the economic devastation around him in 1933, people walking around shell shocked and penniless, and outright rejects it. Where everyone sees a savage business cycle, he sees a savage economic model. Where others queue for breadlines, he buys farmland to grow his own food. Absolutists are easy to admire, of course, but unlike most of them, Borsodi doesn't substitute ideology for logic. He embraces the scientific model and applies it over and over until he finds a way out of his mess.
Borsodi makes three arguments in the book. The first is that an economic system that can't eliminate unemployment is immoral and impractical. Snip:
..."all these victims of unemployment are alike in this respect, that they are periodically unable to support themselves and their families through no fault of their own because of their dependence upon what they earn as a cog in some part of the complex machinery of our factory-dominated civilization."
