The economic system of the United States has made it the most productive country in the world, with more food, cars and symphony orchestras per person than any other. This at a time when freedom, individual and news media, is shrinking elsewhere on the globe. Yet many Americans lack the understanding of the system, and business is not attracting a significant percentage of America’s best youth as they consider preparation for careers.
It is the desire of the donors of the Amrhein Economics and Business Management Fund
that income from the Fund is used by Moravian College to aid in furthering the
understanding of American business and commerce, as it functions in the economic world at large. It is the desire that this is done in a way that will be useful to all students as they later arrange their own affairs, especially to those who prepare to lead the business world of the future. To achieve this, it is desirable that the best possible instruction be coupled with the exposure of as many students as possible to the functioning business world, regardless of their present vocational goal. Encouragement should also be given highly qualified students to choose business as a career.
Income from the Amrhein Fund is to be expended toward the achievement of the goals stated above in a way that will also strengthen Moravian College.
