Under Hoover, an Englishman seeking to market English industrial output in the U.S. once said, “Our competitor is not so much American industry as it is the United Stated Department of Commerce.” But a century of progressive distortion to the very concept of Commerce, has now limited the meaning of the word, to simple trade or movement of goods generally imported, without any relationship to their native origin, or the level of science applied in finishing them for market. Recreating the BoM within Commerce may help to straighten out this badly skewed understanding, as well as recreating the sense of National mission-orientation which should cloak highly productive activity like mining
