IN PRAISE OF BUSINESSMEN. Josiah Wedgwood is an example of a businessman dealing with problems that he did not choose. The problems were presented by his pottery business. Bronowski and Mazlish trace his activities to the problems of his business.

Within the last year, I read an interview with a successful restaurant owner who was discussing the problems of the restaurant business. He said that he welcomed the problems. He said that dealing with problems was what businessmen did and that if you didn’t enjoy dealing with problems, you should do something else.
