Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Measuring and Forecasting General Business Conditions In modern industrial life the various forms of activity - farming, mining, manufacturing, jobbing, transporting, retailing, banking - are inter-related and inter-dependent. Each industrial unit depends upon other units for raw materials and services as well as for a market. Each unit, therefore, is both purchaser and seller of goods for present or future delivery. The connection between the various units is maintained through contracts having price, whether of commodities of labor or of securities, whether prices, wages, or interest, as the main characteristic. Price movements considered in the broadest sense are the outstanding features of business cycles of prosperity and depression. Every individual, corporation, or firm in business is, necessarily, interested in prices. Profits are secured in normal times through careful buying and intelligent selling. The problems of the manufacturer, the dealer, the speculator, or the investor are, first, the selection of the kind of security or commodity to buy or sell, and second, the selection of the time for purchase or sale. In the present discussion we are interested in the second problem - the selection of the time for purchase or sale and the increase or decrease of commitments. The nature of a business enterprise determines in general the nature of the commodities or securities in which the given concern must deal. The question, when to buy or sell, therefore, is really much more important to a given concern than the question what to buy or sell.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Business Forecasting The end and aim of all science, stated Professor Jacques Loeb, is the prediction and control of phenomena. The uncertainty which attends the outcome of business transactions offers a wide field for scientific research. It is indeed surprising to note how little science has done toward reducing the element of risk in commerce in comparison with achievements in the search for the unknown in geography, astronomy, medicine, and other fields. The age-old belief that business affairs were unworthy of study has too long blocked commercial progress. The future will always contain a large degree of uncertainty but the major changes in business conditions can be foreseen if basic economic laws are known. The most harmful effects of changing conditions are due to ignorance of these laws. The forces that primarily cause the alternation of boom and depression, stated Professor M. T. Copeland recently, can be regulated once they are understood. The severity of these ups and downs is due in large measure to the lack of adequate foresight, lack of general appreciation of the factors that influence the course of business prosperity, and failure to adopt corrective policies in season. Scientific research into the underlying causes of changes in business conditions has only just begun. Stabilization of business and the avoidance of recurring depressions and crises, declared the Economic Advisory Committee of the National Conference on Unemployment held recently at Washington, are in no small measure dependent upon a more complete knowledge of the factors affecting the business situation. To the business man, the importance of being at all times acquainted with current conditions, outside as well as within his particular field, can scarcely be overestimated. Future policies cannot be wisely decided unless future economic probabilities are carefully analyzed, and such analysis is impossible without adequate statistics of existing conditions. To the theoretical economist, the importance of knowing beforehand the relative strength of demand and supply has long been recognized.
