Annotation

Anti-capitalist allegory set on the island of Nogi, which was a successful, balanced economy until a capitalist arrived and destroyed the economy. “… the moral of this story is that the insurance companies, the food trust and other large corporations are taking away from the public billions of dollars in excess profits which they are unable to either use or lend. The result is exactly what we should expect.” (7). See also 1935 Parker.
