Explains the logic of the book, how it is thematic, rather than chronological, and attempts to explore the concept and practice of thrift via influential characters and specific eras in which it has proved a particularly potent concept. Sets up the difference between the early meaning of thrift as thriving, and its later meaning of frugality. Briefly explores the implications of this shift from ethical concerns about the human condition, to more pragmatic concerns about human habits.
