Follows on from 864 R. Richey send the brochure listing the lectures offered by the Lecture Management Inc., which has been distributed to schools and lecture societies,  and asks Harrod to keep her posted with any booked dates he has.
The List of Lectures and Subjects, Season 1939-40, undated, is preserved in the same folder. Harrod introduced himself as "an expert on Banking and Finance, and a keen advocate of monetary reform" and "as [one] interested in the Population problem [who] has recently been making vigorous pleas for the greatest diffusion of knowledge and for the institution of family allowances". He advertised lectures on "Banking Policy and the Trade Cycle" (The nature of trade cycle--importance of variations in capital outlay--rate of interest in theory and practice--power of the banking system--limits of interests in banking policy), "Trade Recession and Defence Expenditure" (Recession of 1938--is worse to be expected? American outlook--Defence expenditure in place of Public Works--short term, long term borrowing--Curing depression and financing defence), and "Our Declining Birth-Rate" (Historical survey--danger of racial extinction--Economic aspect--Education--Women's position--Family allowances--Change of outlook).
