ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The Process of Economic Growth," by W.W. Rostow. This is an economists' book, but it discusses ideas that should interest everyone. The book discusses how far have the economic wastes of war been counterbalanced by the stimulus to growth or the shifts in development which wars have brought. It also discusses long term trends of prices of individual commodities. Rostow emphasizes that there is need for economists themselves to explore more carefully the long-term tendencies hitherto left mainly to the conjectures of historians.
