The future course of American business will depend a great deal on the political, economic, and psychological forces now at work throughout the world. This book presents the foreign and domestic problems with which business must reckon, today and in the future: the struggle for men’s minds abroad, the Red menace in Asia, mobilization of our Western allies, our relations with Latin America; and, at home, the problems of inflation, price and wage controls, materials control, and manpower.
