This folder contains correspondence soliciting Edison's opinions, along with a few letters hoping to shape his opinions, regarding banking and currency issues. Included are letters concerning trade, finance, gold supplies, corporate organization, antitrust policy, currency reform, and economic prosperity. Some items discuss the central bank debate. Most of the letters were written in reaction to newspaper and magazine articles, including Edison's Saturday Evening Post interview with Roger W. Babson entitled "Our Foolish Panics." Less than 10 percent of the documents have been selected. The selected items contain Edison's reply in the form of marginalia. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
