Wilcox discusses world-wide food production; ""Transportation"" by Hobart S. Perry surveys the international problems connected with water and air transport and international controls; ""Industry and Trade"" by J. Anton de Haas treats agriculture, industry, raw materials--and the place of international control; foreign investments, reparations, repayment of debts are discussed in ""Money and Finance"" by Michael A. Heilperin; international issues of labor are weighed in a chapter by Otis E. Mulliken. Mulliken; there's a brief chapter on politics by the editor, a discussion of communism, revolution and the problems of conquered nations. George N. Shuster discusses education.
