Excerpt from Cannibals of Finance: Fifteen Years" Contest, With the Money TrustNo man ever had his work, while under way, more misjudged than mine has been; experts of all kinds have made maps to show where I was wrong in my calculations and estimates, yet my estimates were correct. All worked out much better than I anticipated, and I wonder what I could have done for this nation had I been left alone in peace, to serve the money entrusted to me; or had I back of me people strong enough to have said "Hands off."Let me take your time to give you my view-point of life; then the balance I write will be clearer to you.As the world advances in civilization and population, new conditions need new utilities. Men always reaching out for advancement send out their desire into the realm of thought. Cities grow, population increases; it takes men a long time to go to and from their business. They feel the need of quicker transit, and day by day this desire shapes itself until some morning the city awakes and finds some man has solved part of the problem; as McAdoo solved the great problem of interstate tubes between New York and Jersey City.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
