The former head of E.C.A., after denying the possibility of doing business with Stalin or the necessity of a preventive war, outlines in simple terms a program for thwarting the U.S.S.R. through the effective use of United States economic strength. Generally optimistic in his outlook, he favors overcoming the pressure of inflation through increased production rather than through price controls. He advocates the vigorous arming of ourselves and our allies, assistance to other areas--Asia as well as Europe--in the improvement of their economies, and an active campaign on the "information front."
