Studies in food rationing by Judith Russell( Book )

2 editions published between 1947 and 1948 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of several commodities rationing programs and different types of rationing programs under the auspices of the OPA-- such as the coffee program as an example of unit rationing, a single food for a single stamp, as sugar had been rationed; and processed foods and fats and oils as exemplified by the two-point rationing system, a number of separate commodities rationed with a single 'currency'. The milk program, never instituted, is an example of how commodities could be rationed on a area basis, rather than nationwide; while the slaughter control program analyzes the methods used at production level to reinforce distribution controls for rationing and price control

Problems in price control, legal phases by United States( Book )

1 edition published in 1947 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ultimate verdict on the legal liability is found in the judgment of the courts. In OPA's case, they are found in the specialized court and procedures established to hear and dispose of challenges to price controls. The first essay is devoted to the nature and work of the Emergency Court of Appeals. In a real sense, the decisive test of the legal validity of the OPA's action was met before the stage of litigation was begun. The principle burden of responsibility to draft a framework for the OPA to work in were the price lawyers. They drafted the regulations and counseled the Price Administrator. The second essay attempts a review of the role and actions of the legal staff assigned to work price control
Problems in price control, national office organization and management by Virgil B Zimmerman( Book )

1 edition published in 1947 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of the OPA was part of the history of an all-over mobilization of the Nation's resources. But within the Agency, there were organizational and administrative problems of price control of considerable importance and magnitude. This volume differs from others in the series which bear the same general title in that it treats not the substantial economic or legal problems of price control, but rather the administrative machinery developed in the national office to cope with them. It covers the major organizational land administrative problems of OPA's price department and traces the evolution of more or less satisfactory solutions for most of them
