Excerpt from The Organization of Ocean Commerce

This monograph is the result of two lines of work. From 1899 to 1901 the author assisted Professor Emory R. Johnson with the economic investigations which he, as a member of the Isthmian Canal Commission, made to ascertain the relation of the proposed canal to the industries and commerce of the United States. This investigation required a minute study of the commercial effects which this waterway would have upon the management of the maritime trade of the United States, and upon much of the commerce of Europe with Pacific countries. This subject proved so interesting that the author continued the study of the question for two years subsequent to 1901, one year being spent in Europe and the other at the University of Pennsylvania.

The monograph, a result of this study, has been written with reference to the general reading public, and to high school and college students of commerce. For two years the author has conducted a course in the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce of the University of Pennsylvania dealing with the subjects considered in the monograph.
