An account of a recent trip to attend an economic conference in Geneva, Switzerland, and to talk with various people in Paris and London about European attitudes toward foreign aid, economic integration, and domestic economic planning. There is a rapidly growing body of theoretical and empirical work and actual experience in the use of economic planning for guiding growth and development within a democratic political government. The author feels that the United States should not miss the opportunity of benefiting from this experience and of incorporating it in thinking about its own problems.
