How to understand the underlined sentence?
Thanks in advance.
In October 1923, National Geographic ran an article reporting that there were 13 million “motorcars” on U.S. roads. The author gushed, “The demand for initiative and enterprise in those who own and operate an automobile are giving to the American people a training the value of which cannot be estimated in dollars and cents.”
I can understand the comprehensional difficulty, it's not very clear at all. My best guess is that the writer seems to be saying that all these people who are rich and progressive enough to own a motorcar are going to be employers who will want workers who think ahead, and that that need is going to push America into the future more than cash could.
