The Regulation of Industry

By Dudley F. Pegrum | Go to book overview
with his socially expressed desires. On the contrary, he does just that, sometimes more effectively and sometimes more dramatically than at other times. Man is constantly seeking to control the conditions under which he lives. In the broadest sense, he lives in a world which he has created, but the results of his efforts can scarcely be said to conform to a preconceived pattern. Not only does he have to accept at any given time the limiting conditions of the world of nature, but he also has to bow to the inertia and restraining force of historical accumulation. For better or for worse, he is compelled to proceed from the environment he has to one of which he knows nothing. Although he can predict the results of policies within narrow limits, this can usually be done only in broad terms.Social control of economic life is forced by the necessity of working with immediate problems and materials. If it is carried out intelligently, it will be based on broad objectives and a philosophy that embodies all the social values that have come to be cherished because they are indispensable to the civilization we wish to preserve and nourish. This fact precludes the recasting of the economic and social structure in the pattern indicated by some abstract model that does not and cannot comprehend within its framework all of the essential ingredients of the social structure of a virile civilization. The basic institutional arrangements which have conditioned the development of economic life in the United States are the subject of the next chapter.REFERENCES
