Excerpt from Clue to the Economic Labyrinth

The great social problem is: First, the question why a growing number of workers have to go without necessaries and luxuries, though only too anxious to produce them for each other; and Second, what are the obstacles interposed against the exertion of their productive power.

"I gave a beggar from my little store
Of well earned gold. He spent the shining ore
And came again and yet again, still cold
And hungry as before.
I gave a thought, and through that thought of mine
He found himself a man, supreme, divine.
Bold, clothed, and crowned with blessings manifold,
And now he begs no more."

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

A caravan trudges wearily through the hot sand of the desert. At last an oasis is reached, and all rush toward the life-giving fluid. But only a meagre quantity is found, hardly sufficient for all, and already the more vigorous travellers are making use of their strength to monopolize this supply. Weak and tired pilgrims whose strength had barely sufficed to permit their reaching the oasis, despair of being able to force their way to the spring.

Fortunately the leader approaches, and his exhortations are heard. He asks the strong ones to moderate their greed, and to let their poor brethren obtain some of the water. He shows them how wrong it is for them to store away water for future use before others have as much as quenched their thirst.

Who has not heard this gospel, preached in the holy writings of all peoples, resounding from every pulpit of our churches? They are old, very old, these admonitions - as old as humanity. Our parents have heard them before us, their parents before them, and their echoes come down to us, faintly and more faintly, from the ever-receding generations of the past.
