What is business? 1948 view

What is business? Well, here’s a 1948 instructional video to tell you all about it.


I wrote a post, What is business?, on this subject last year. But there’s just something kinda kitschy and fun about this 1948 educational video…where we see "Mother" and Joan waving to "Father" as he sets off in the car to go to work, seeing as business creates the livelihood for most of the working population. I suppose "Mother" just sits around on her chair and the apron’s just a decoration and the kids take care of themselves, of course. And Mother most certainly wasn’t running off to grab her Tupperware or Avon consultant kits or even bake up some apple pie once the kids were at school. But I digress!
