Epoch of which I now at length write. It is when theY ear is closing that we begin to sum up its characteristic features. It is when the trees of the orchard are becoming stripped and bare that we seek to reckon up the fruits of the season. And so, as the Golden A ge, which I have watched as a contemporary, is now fallen into the sere and yellow leaf, it is natural, and for the first time becomes possible, to write its History, to exhibit and appreciate its effects upon theW orld; and also to unravel some problems in economic science, upon which there has been a conflict of opinion and (as seems to me) much serious error, yet which during this memorable Epoch have been strikingly tested and illustrated by the light of Experience. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
