396Z. <+> to Harrod, 4 December, 1936 [a]

The letter refers to a speach delivered by Harrod on the previous Wednesday. [1] The author argues that the present decline of population represents a healthy reaction to the previous abnormal growth, and is not yet dangerous. The measures Harrod proposed, alone, would not be sufficient to turn the tide, but they would however raise a welcome interest on this problem.
