"You have a genie at your command, scarcely less spectacular than the slave of Aladdin's lamp. You call him into being by flicking a switch…to sweep floors, chill food, cook meals, power gadgets, and run factories. This genie has taken the load off the muscles of man. He has converted muscle power and skill into a capacity to produce th emany wonderful things that make our lives easier and more enjoyable. Without him, they would be a futile dream. This genie is power. His parent is capital and his grandparent is savings."
Good Reading Rack Service, 1953
