Solid hardcover.; "The Finance Forum is conducted by the West Side Y M C A, New York, as a branch of the Educational Department. It was inaugurated in 1905 ... The policy of the Forum has been to invite as speakers men of practical experience, and many of the most representative members of the business community have lectured on the particular branches of finance in which they have gained distinction. Public Utilities was chosen as the subject of the 1913-1914 course, particularly because of the prominence of such securities in the investment markets. The connection between the investor and the engineering and operating features of Public Utilities is direct. Of no less interest and importance is the relationship between the investor and the consumer, and the public attitude toward the utility company. ... The course consisted of ten lectures and aroused widespread interest. Their economic importance induced the Y M C A to waive its custom in such matters and allow these lectures to be distributed first in single pamphlets and now in this volume ..." - Preface.
