The Development of American Industries, Their Economic Significance

Excerpt

Since The Development of American Industries was first published in 1932, social, economic, and business changes have made a revision necessary. Statistics have been brought up to date, changes in the status of industries have been explained, the effects of legislative enactments have been stressed, changes in methods of production have been discussed, and new products have been described.

The effect of war conditions abroad and of our own national defense program has not been unduly emphasized. The final outcome of the Second World War, the amount of disruption of industry, the new products and new methods that will have to be developed to meet emergency conditions, and the effect of the heavy tax program to cover national deficits are all factors that will have to be known before anything can be written that will be more than a matter of opinion or surmise.
