DIRECT MANAGEMENT FROM ABROAD: THE FORMATIVE YEARS OF THE BRITISH COLUMBIA ELECTRIC RAILWAY

This is a case study of London-directed firm that supplied transportation, gas, and electric power in British Columbia. Its history suggests that, in a young and rapidly developing economy, control of a company's activities by outsiders who are chiefly concerned with long-term investment prospects may be of greater benefit to all than critics of absentee management are willing to admit. Informational and bibliographical notes accompany the article.
