Transcript N / GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 59 subservience to the needs of industry except by communal enterprise? Can we provide the cheap and easy communication and transport (as necessary to industry as the unimpeded flow of blood to the human body) except by public organisation? Can we solve the problem of "Labour versus Capital " without further laws? 4. Economies in Distribution. At present it often costs more to sell and distribute a commodity than to make it! As far back as 1892 Lord Goschen revealed to us from the Income Tax. returns that the profits taken by the directors and capitalists in distribution and transport were twice as great as those of the proprietors and managers in all thfe great manufacturing and productive industries put together. Since that time such profits have considerably increased. It would seem as if stupendous economies in agents, travellers, wholesale merchants, retailers, advertising, etc., etc., could be made (thus setting free huge resources in men and capital for really productive effort) by effective organisation of the distribution of commodities. Private industry " has already, in fact, long since begun to " eliminate the middleman " and will probably try to "eliminate' him far more thoroughly when the war is over. The Co-operative Store, supplied |>y the "C.W.S.," provides -another, and more sociallv satisfactory, illustration of economical distribution. In the national postal service and the various municipal undertakings we see perhaps the nucleus of what might he called "the public re-organisation of distribution.' D.—M Scientific Management" Of late years a new panacea has been boomed, especially in the United States, entitled " Scientific Management." So far the tremendous significance of ' scientific management ' has not been fully recognised. Properly understood, it is the complement to the Industrial Revolution, which, by the more extensive use of machinery, etc., increased the efficiency of capital. The present movement aims at a similar increase in the efficiency of labour as an agent of production. The new revolution in industry has as yet merely begun, because employers, in spite of the motive of self-interest, are conservative ; but it will receive an enormous impetus from the conditions arising out of the war." (Arthur Greenwood : " War and Democracy.")
