Excerpt from An Approach to Business Problems

Before a science of business can take shape, there must first be build up a system of business practice. The methods, plans, and rules of the most efficient organizations must be brought together, tested, and compared, and the most effective must be selected and coordinated. Some of this work has been done. Trade associations, universities, periodicals, and various governmental agencies have been studying the details of production and distribution.

But up to the present, no plan for the guidance of the student in the maze of business practice has been offered. To supply this deficiency, to discover a classification molded on the living activities of business, to supply a uniform method of approach to business problems in whatever form they may arise, and to illustrate the application of this method to typical problems, including those involving the relations of business to - society these are the purposes of this book. I need hardly say that in all this the book makes no claim to finality. If the classification and the uniform method should do no more than suggest improvements upon themselves, the work, I feel, would have been worth while. But I venture to hope also that they will be of some practical value in their present form: that they will make it easier for business men and all thinking men to see each activity of business in its relations to others and to visualize and weigh all the significant factors bearing on any business problem.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from An Approach to Business Problems So with many business proverbs and maxims. One frequently hears, for example, that Goods well bought are half sold. Yet this is misleading unless good buy ing comprehends a knowledge of all the complex con ditions which govern the market. Cheapness alone is not a final test of good buying, for the loss from over stocking in order to secure price concessions may more than counterbalance a price advantage. Applying the proverb in a mere mechanical way, therefore, might bring loss, if not disaster. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
