One of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history here shares his sensible, sage outlook on the economic affairs of the nation as a whole as it existed at the turn of the 20th century. This collection of essays discusses everything from the most personal aspects of the world of business-such as the virtues of hard work, dedication, thrift, sincerity, and other prudent qualities anyone aiming for success should embrace-to the most fundamental: the "bugaboo of trusts"; the state of the oil and steel industries in the United States; the best uses of tariffs; and more. Gathered from such popular publications of the era as The New York Evening Post, The New York Journal, Macmillan's Magazine, and others, and published in book form in 1902, this is a must-read look into the mind of one of the men who helped create the "American century."Entrepreneur and philanthropist ANDREW CARNEGIE (1835-1919) was born in Scotland and emigrated to America as a teenager. His Carnegie Steel Company launched the steel industry in Pittsburgh, and after its sale to J.P. Morgan, he devoted his life to philanthropic causes. His charitable organizations built more than 2,500 public libraries around the world, and gave away more than $350 million during his lifetime.

Strona 18 - The partner's sons will never trouble you much, but look out that some boys poorer, much poorer, than yourselves, whose parents cannot afford to give them any schooling, do not challenge you at the post and pass you at the grand stand.
