Excerpt from American Railway Problems: In the Light of European Experience or Government Regulation Vs; Government Operation of Railways

The purpose of this work is to present the broader economic, political and social aspects of our railway problem, while leaving in the background those technical and administrative questions which must remain largely the same, whether we adhere to our present policy of Government regulation or decide to embark upon a regime of public ownership and management.

While maintaining that our present experiment with State and Federal regulation should be tried out energetically and thoroughly, so as to bring it to the most successful attainable issue, at the same time I have endeavoured to make clear that the alternative of Government ownership, if brought about in a conservative and businesslike way, is very far from constituting the dangerous possibility which many railway apologists and others would have us consider it. As a matter of fact, in view of the indisputable success of State railways in Continental Europe, the assumption that we are constitutionally incapable of achieving similarly happy results would seem more like an interested prejudice or an exploded superstition than like a sound deduction from known facts.
