The Newmarch Lectures for 1920-1 were given at University College in February, 1921, upon 'Current Statistical Problems in Wealth and Industry.' They received a publicity in the Press that led to numerous requests for full publication, and I feared from this widespread interest that there might have been some misapprehension on the part of the public as to the character and purpose of the lectures. They were intended to be a detached examination of the chief statistical data available in the consideration of problems of wealth and industry, and an exposition of some principles involved in arriving at those details.
Newspaper readers seemed to scent a new supply of powder and shot for current social polemics. In this respect many may have been disappointed. It is with some misgivings that the lectures are now given the permanence of book form, for while the principles have, so to speak, some enduring quality, and it is urgent that they should be better understood, the grounds for more popular interest seem to lie in the illustrations of those principles expressed in current values, which are necessarily quite ephemeral.
