Excerpt from Elementary Economics: An Introduction to the Study of Economics and Sociology

The Changing World in Which We Live. The world in which we live is an ever changing, restless world; it is not static or at a standstill. Institutions, laws and ways of getting a living are different to-day from those prevailing when George Washington was President; and before the year 2000 is ushered in many further changes will occur. There is progress, or at least change, as the years go by in government, in moral ideals and in methods employed in industry. "Constant change is the law of life, in institutions as well as in animals."

It is very difficult for us who live in the present age of variety, of luxury and of power over nature, to picture the long, hard journey through which mankind has passed in order to reach the present stage of civilization. The primitive man was but little above the animal; he lived in caves and hunted and fought as an animal. In the early ages of semi-civilization, men cooked with hot stones placed in wooden vessels. These vessels were coated with clay to prevent burning. Finally, clay vessels were used, and pottery came into being. Sugar was unknown to the Romans, and Washington's residence was without stoves. "The people in the main part of the world never had any potatoes, corn, tomatoes, peanuts, nor turkeys until after America was discovered."
