Overview

There is no value at all in the bank-book which we so carefully cherish. There is no value at all in those deeds and mortgages upon which we depend so completely. The value rests first, in the integrity of the lawyers, clerks and stenographers who draw up the papers; secondly, in the integrity of the officers; thirdly, in the integrity of the courts and judges which would enable us to enforce our claims; and finally, in the integrity of the community which would determine whether or not the orders of the court will be executed. Published in 1920, but its message continues to resonate today. A master statistician and one of the early must-reads of business self-help literature, here explores how religions can serve as the basis for reintegrating the values of industriousness, cooperation, and other truly human resources into the commercial arena. This fascinating book highlights how alike today's business world is to that of the early 20th century... and how we can improve that arena to the benefit of all.
