COMPTROLLER AND ACCOUNTANT-GENERAL OF THE POST OFFICE LONDON SIR ISAAC PITMAN SONS, LTD. PARKER STREET, KINGSWAY, W. C. 2 BATH, MELBOURNE, TORONTO, NEW YOEK 1031 PRINTED IN GREAT BRITAIN AT THE PITMAN PRESS, BATH PREFACE, THE purpose of this little book is to assist those who are interested in the economics of industry and trade under modern conditions, whether as students or as men of business. Oneof the most difficult, as it is one of the most important, problems for the industrial or commercial executive is to adapt his practice to the new conditions which scientific and technical progress are constantly creating. We do our thinking with a stock-in-trade of yieas and principles based on past experience abso lutely sound, no doubt, so long as the conditions in which they were evolved, and which they were made to fit, remain. But the last few years have seen a greater and more rapid advance in scientific and tech nical achievement than has ever before been known. Do the old ideas and principles still hold under these new conditions These are questions which it seems very necessary to answer and to answer them involves the re-analysis of industry and commerce as it is to-day and as it is going to be to-morrow. In that analysis we find that overhead cost has emerged as a factor of new and, in many cases, pre ponderating significance. It has to be regarded not as a fact but as a force a thing which determines industrial and commercial policy, and even the political action of governments. The flow of resources into various productive uses 5 of which economists speak presents a misleading picture, at any rate on a short-range view. What we see, rather, is banked-up productive capacity seeking productive employment. The paths which it must follow in its search are determined by cost of VI PREFACE production and cost of production under these condi tions is a very elusive thing. Here accountancy must help and anyone who observes the lines on which cost accountancy has been thinking, and developing its practice, in the last few years, will perceive that it is awaking to the need. Thisbroadening of the outlook of accountancy is indeed significant. On the financial side value, and on the cost side overhead, are coming to be recognized as factors to w r hich the accountant must direct his special attention if he is to render the service expected of him. One corollary is that the study of economics must take a definite place in the training of the professional accountant. Here, again, progress may be observed. The professional organizations are becoming alive to the need...
