A prominent Wall Street financier, Kahn was very close to publisher Horace Liveright, who persuaded him to issue this compendium of his opinions and what would today be described as "thought-pieces" drawn from public talks and presentations. Includes a two-page preface signed "The Publishers". Widely respected for his financial acumen, Kahn was also an important patron of the arts and the dedicatee of Hart Crane's masterpiece "The Bridge"
