in the modern business world, on the one hand, a new
consciousness that education is an economic power which
must be availed of. There is a growing feeling among
statesmen and educationists, on the other hand, that the
real rulers of the modern world will be the business men who
are capable of managing the "large industry" that the
greatness of nations will depend more and more on their
capacity of producing these capable masters of large enterprises.
And the chasm which has so long separated the
learned professions from the practical men of affairs is
everywhere closing up by the drawing together of the two
sides. It will, surely, be worth while to indicate briefly some of
the causes which have induced so many countries to become
interested in this movement.
