The Liquidation of War Production: Cancellation of War Contracts and Disposal of Government-Owned Plants and Surpluses

Excerpt

The research program of the Committee for Economic Development includes a series of studies of the special problems which will arise in the transition from war to peace. The present report is one of this series.

The policies and practices adopted in the cancellation of war contracts, in the disposal of surplus war inventories, and in the disposal of government-owned plants will be among the dominant factors determining how successfully we shift from a war to a peace economy. In this study the author develops the guiding principles and the lines of action which will enable us to avoid needless unemployment and to achieve the fullest use of our productive resources as we liquidate our war efforts and turn to peacetime work.

Like all the research reports of C.E.D., this study was conducted under the provisions of the bylaws which guarantee full freedom of expression to the Research Staff. The author has had the benefit of consultation with many persons inside and outside C.E.D. but has retained complete independence of judgment in accepting or rejecting suggestions which have come to him.
