Excerpt from The Creation of Wealth: Modem Efficiency Methods Analyzed and Applied
If the reader, in taking up this book, should become alarmed at the term "economics," which it professes to touch upon, he should not unceremoniously cast it aside, for it may not be so dangerously economic after all. In this reflection the economists will no doubt heartily concur. This treatise does not deal with the ordinary subject-matter to be found in the current works on economics, but begins where they leave off and attempts to build a super-science, so to speak, upon the old one.
There has been a tendency in recent literature treating of industrial life to emphasize a mysterious element ulterior to the recognized factors of production - land, labor and capital. The subject has been approached from the practical side by Harrington Emerson in his treatises on "Efficiency"; by Frederick W. Taylor, in his "Scientific Management," and others. Hugo Munsterberg and other psychologists have discoursed upon it from their point of view, and W. H. Mallock and various social writers have dealt with it from a humanitarian angle - and even the poetically inclined have not altogether ignored it, for Gerald Stanley Lee, in "Inspired Millionaires" and "Crowds," gets a glimpse of a great truth from Mt. (Parnassus) Tom.
