The Corporation and the Economy: Notes

Excerpt

The following Notes represent a kind of distillation of the work and findings of the people who have been engaged for the past year and a half in studying the Corporation under the basic issues program of the Fund for the Republic. The program is now being carried on at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, which the Fund has established in Santa Barbara, California.

W. H. Ferry, who is Vice President of the Fund and the staff administrator of the Corporation Project, based his Notes on the studies that have been prepared for the Project, the conferences held by the Advisory Committee to the Project, and the meetings of a Seminar on the Corporation organized by Scott Buchanan.

The Notes were discussed by the staff almost daily over a twoweek period and the final draft that resulted from these discussions was presented to the Consultants for two days of discussion on April 26 and 27, 1959. It is this draft which is printed here. It is followed by an edited version of the Consultants' remarks.

The participants in the April meetings were: A. A. Berle, Jr., Scott Buchanan, Eric Goldman, Clark Kerr, John Courtney Murray, S.J., Reinhold Niebuhr, and I. I. Rabi, Consultants; Robert M. Hutchins, who served as chairman of the meetings; John Cogley, W. H. Ferry, Hallock Hoffman, Paul Jacobs, Frank K. Kelly, Walter Millis, James Real, and Edward Reed, of the staff.
