Really a text book, but with content of value to youth in search of an entering wedge to the business world. Basic facts about business as such; its evolution through money, transportation, communication. Profit the yardstick. Organization and financial set-up. The stock markets and the commodity markets. Insurance, credit, etc. The last part of the book deals with types of modern business organization, from manufacturing and distribution to agriculture, professions and entertainment, all handled from his angle -- ""the what of business as contrasted with the why"".
