    Introduction to Arthur Spiethoff, in: Frederic C. Lane and Jelle C. Riemersma, Enterprise and Secular Change, Homewood, Ill., 1953, 432. Werner Sombart, my esteemed teacher, went so far as to regard economic history as the empirical division of economics; cf.

    Paul P. Harbrecht and Adolf A. Berle, Jr., Towards the Paraproprietal Society, New York 1959. The reader's attention should be drawn to the excellent work by Allan G. Gruchy, Modern Economic Thought/The American Contribution, New York 1947. It is a “holistic” approach to the teachings of Thorstein Veblen, John R. Commons, Wesley, C. Mitchell, John M. Clark, Rexford G. Tugwell, Gardiner C. Means. Chapter 7 on the “administrative economics” of Means shows Means to be of one mind with Berle with regard to what Berle had called the “corporate revolution” and the “democratization of industry”. Cf. also Peter Drucker, Businessmen Must Manage For the World of Tomorrow. EXXON USA, Third Quarter 1978, vol. XVII, No. 3, 30–31. A book somewhat similar to that by Gruchy (see above) is Paul T. Homan's Contemporary Economic Thought, New York 1928.Google Scholar
