ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the pamphlet "THE AMERICAN WAY," by Maxwell S. Stewart. It is stated that this pamphlet is an antidote for the free enterprise that is being fed to the American public these days. According to Stewart the American way has never been one of complete freedom in economic matters. Even in the frontier days there was considerable government interference. It is reported that business men seldom objected so long as state intervention benefited them. Land grants, tariffs and fair trade acts were quite welcome. Yet when government tries to provide jobs in times of depression it is accused of dictatorship, if it does nothing, then bureaucrats are ruining the nation.
