    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the machinery for government-business cooperation in post-war planning in the U.S. A great deal of thinking on post-war planning has already been done by private scholars and by public and private institutions. For a number of years the official topside planning agency of the federal government, the National Resources Planning Board, carried on important studies. Personnel in certain federal departments and in many state and local government are now devoting part of their time to post-war planning. At the suggestion of the Secretary of Commerce, business men organized the Committee for Economic Development for post-war business planning. The Chamber of Commerce, National Planning Association, National Association of Manufacturers, and numerous other voluntary associations have published material on the subject. According to a survey by the Twentieth Century Fund there are now 197 organizations doing continuing work in planning on the national or international level. Of these, 39 are government agencies and 158, private organizations.
