It was not the question of finding the money that troubled these capitalists and other men of large affairs, since to them the securing of $50,000,000 was a small matter. But, as a leading member of the group, President Vanderlip of the National City Bank, put it, how to vitalize the $50,000,000, how to make America a financial and industrial power throughout the world, how to send the American dollars into other lands to open the way for American merchandise - that was the one great problem.It was management, not money, that exercised us - brains, practical experience, judgment, vision, energy, plus patriotism. We scanned the whole country in search of the proper man.From an abundance of experience in dealing with corporations of all sorts, both successful and otherwise, these men recognized the vital connection which exists between efficient management and satisfactory profits. And the necessity which they felt of placing at the helm of their corporation a carefully selected executive is common to all corporations, whether newly organized or going concerns of many years existence.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
