Shamcher’s first book, Distribute or Destroy, is now reprinted and available in paperback or kindle. Find out more here at the website for the book

Originally the book was published in 1934 in Norway as Efter Oss Kommer Overfloden (After Us the Glut), his world economic survey (published by Aschehoug.) It was immediately translated into English, and released in Britain and the US as Distribute or Destroy, subtitled A Survey of the World’s Glut of Goods with a Description of Various Proposals and Practical Experiments for its Distribution.

Another great cover by Diane Feught. Wonderful to have the opportunity to look back at earlier economic theories, and see these through the eyes of Shamcher when he was a young civil engineer with a strong interest in new economy.
