There is 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.
