CAN REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT DO THE JOB

Assuming that America -- after the war -- will continue her involvement in foreign affairs and will want to maintain a more stabilized domestic economy, the author analyzes here the ways in which representative government is unequal to doing the job. There's the perennial problem of the Executive vs the Legislative, a conflict subdued in times of war, more virulent when peace is again declared. But he believes that representative government can be maintained and conflict eliminated if three reforms are inaugurated :-closer collaboration between President and Congress ; freer communications; and the creation of a joint legislative-executive cabinet, so that the powers can work together with greater efficiency and harmony. A valid brief for the national good, sensible and sustained in interest.
