A Quote by Ralph Hendershot on business, direction, facts, men, nations, past, problems, and talent

It is probably safe to say that the best brains of the nation are to be found in industry. This is partly because industry can afford to pay the highest prices for talent, and also because of the training men receive in that field. That this fact is not more apparent is due in part to the reluctance of business men to reveal their accomplishments to the public, and also because they have directed their energies in the past almost exclusively to production problems.
