Abstract

With Ivar Krueger dead or disappeared, with Samuel Insull living in Athens, a hunted and declassed expatriot, with the leaders of the Marcus family behind Penitentiary bars, with a Peer of Great Britten but recently freed from Penal servitude, and with the great local distress that has come to Richmond in the failure of a Bank having as depositors more than one out of every four inhabitants, the time is right to investigate thsi person created by the Sovereign--the Corporation. The state being no more than the collection of the individuals comprising it, it would appear that these individuals have created a person, the Corporation, which has proved a veritable Frankenstein, eating ravenously into their savings and using their capital for their own undoing.
