LAND OF PLENTY

An industrial designer explores the field of creative activity which may well change all aspects of life in the years to come. He investigates the potentials in Power, Transportation, Communications, Electronics; in Health; in Housing, (this is the most exciting section, with its indications of what is to come in lighting, heating, plumbing, refrigeration, cooking techniques, ventilation); in Community Planning, in the making of better citizens. Though he charges us with accepting a responsibility to the world in which we alone are prospering, his emphasis is definitely on development of individual liberties on the home front. His position on labor offers a challenge, and the appendix presenting the Keule-Kenyon Plan makes a constructive application.
