In one respect the scope of this-comment is broader than the title suggests, in another respect narrower. Price-fixing in Georgia cannot be adequately considered without giving some attention to price-fixing elsewhere, particularly in cases which have reached the United States Supreme Court. On the other hand, certain aspects of price-fixing will be purposely omitted from this discussion: those attempted under the N.I.R.A. during the depression; those growing out of War Powers, such as the Lever Act, the Office of Price Administration, and its successor, the Office of Price Stabilization. To deal with these would require a treatment far more extensive than is possible in a brief comment.

If the section considering other states seems disproportionately long in a paper which, by its title, should concentrate more on Georgia, it is because the writer feels that without fitting this state's experiences into the national pattern, the essential perspective cannot be achieved.
