An industrial consultant and efficiency expert with experience on both sides of the water surveys in broad lines the operation of big business. In the United States, the origins, principles, methods of mass production which have resulted in more for more people; the growth of certain volume enterprises, Ford, Woolworth, Standard Oil; the friendly relations between leaders and labor. English industry where mass production has been less successfully handled -- the changes desirable in the future; briefly France and Germany -- which did not equal American output in spite of Hitler. A criticism of British post-war policy which intends to restrict competition, raise prices, and operate for the few against the many. A book for industrialists only -- and to them it should be somewhat obvious. No excess of social consciousness.
