Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from High Pressure: What It Is Doing to My Town and My Neighbors IN the United States we have always allowed business a freer rein than business is allowed in older countries. Perhaps an extra amount of freedom was advisable be cause we had a new country with so much to be done. But I believe the time is past when business can be allowed so much freedom without disastrous consequences. In this book I have tried to show what can happen in a typical American community as a result of allowing business an excess of freedom. This book is not an autobiography, nor is it a fictional biography. Merely, I have set down things that I have observed during my own rather long experience as a businessman. The city that I call Wellston might be any American city. We Americans don't have the sense of security that we used to have. All sorts of panaceas have been proposed to bring it back. But as far as I know, no one's panacea goes quite to the root of the matter. We can't have the old sense of security until something is done to curb the American practice of high-powered salesmanship. With our production machinery in its present state of efficiency, the country can be glutted with manufactured products in two years or less. Then there is a depression. But as soon as signs of revival appear, business goes into high gear and again oversells its market. Then there is another depression. Just recently we have seen this demonstrated.
