In chapter II, the International Balance of Payments are analyzed. Chapter III reviews how the purchasing power was declining and how it affected the balance of payments. Chapter IV discusses why inflation produced a financial disaster in the United States.

This is done by the rise and fall of the interest rate and also by the oil prices that washed out any good news in the trading industry.
