Excerpt from Getting a Living: The Problem of Wealth and Poverty-of Profits, Wages and Trade Unionism

To remedy society's many ills, and to attain its magnificent possibilities, the all-inclusive need of course is knowledge of natures economic and sociological laws, whose observance by men, or non-observance, makes society at any time what it is. To a large extent the same is true of such knowledge with each person individually.

The belief that this knowledge can be sufficiently possessed by the people in general appeared in the establishment of popular government, and appears now, stronger and more widespread than ever before, in the dissemination of information by state labor bureaus and by economic societies, and in the unprecedented interest in sociological study among preachers and teachers, trade unionists, literary club women, and the thoughtful in every class. It seems to be true that "all economists and labor bodies agree that education in economics is the great desideratum for working people," and, it may be added, for all other people. Hence, in view of the present interest, and of the general study of economics since the rise of trade unionism twenty years ago, the reason why so few have other than a hazy idea of the problem of wealth and poverty seems not to be indifference; nor is it lack of knowledge to be studied, for the investigators and economists have found out nearly enough in most particulars what the truth is. The trouble seems to be that its scattered form has made this truth inaccessible to all not having the mind, the time, and the money to study scores of books and hundreds of reports and periodicals, and to pick out the truth from a mass of error.
