The economic organization of the Marshall Islanders

"This study of the economic organization of the Marshall Islanders was undertaken as one part of a survey of American Micronesia; this survey was conducted by the U.S. Commercial Company, a government agency operating within the framework of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. The U.S. Commercial Company, cooperating with the Military Government Section of the Navy Department, is directly responsible for economic developments among the peoples of Guam and the former Japanese Mandated Islands. This economic survey, carried out during the summer of 1946, was considered essential for planning future economic development of the island area." (Quoted from Preface)
