Unternehmer in Der Politik
Unternehmer in Der Politik
By Herbert Gross and Others
Econ-Verlag, 1954, 336 pp.

This book is one manifestation of a feeling among some Germans that businessmen should concern themselves more actively and more intelligently with German policy and not just with the immediate interests of their firms or industries. The first part of the book is an essay on this theme by Herbert Gross. The second half comprises sympathetic sketches of a number of businessmen, living and dead, who exemplify public spirit and breadth of interests. Considering the title, it is odd that Walther Rathenau gets only a passing mention.
