The seasonal trades "seem never to have been made the subject of detailed study." In the United Kingdom of today, according to Mr. Webb, there is no seasonal slackness in the community as a whole. "Stating it definitely, I venture to say that if we could get accurate statistics of the total number of wage-earners actually in employment in the United Kingdom this week we should find it to be very nearly identical with the total number for any other week of the present year." – Introductory paragraph of review.
