Business-A Profession (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Business-a Profession It is true that at the present time the lawyer does not hold that position With the people which he held fifty years ago; but the reason is in my opinion not lack of opportunity. It is because, instead of holding a position of independence between the wealthy and the people, prepared to curb the excesses of either, the able lawyers have to a great extent allowed them selves to become an adjunct of the great corporations, and have neglected their obligation to use their powers for the protection of the people. If we are to solve the important economic, social and industrial ques tions Which have become political questions also, it seems to me clear that the attitude of the lawyer in this respect must be materially changed. The great opportunity of the American Bar is and will be to stand again as it did in the past, ready to protect also the interests of the people. Of this work in the people's service, his story is a unique example. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
