Analyzes possible increased technological exchange from Soviet Bloc to United States. Technology imports can return benefits for what we export and establish a stronger U.S. position vis-a-vis Soviet requests for exports. The pattern of Soviet investment and use of technology implies a large, unused stock of technical information in applied research, not available through usual publications or current institutions. Major technical surprises are unlikely in this mix; rather a number of items are expected allowing moderate improvements in our mass production industries, particularly metallurgical, electrical and heavy construction. Development by small steps instead of great leaps is conventional for these industries and Soviet technology of this nature can contribute to maintaining viability of such U.S. firms. Employment of U.S. research institutes in a technology exchange role can reduce some current exchange barriers. A deductive method is outlined to find useful technology. 46 pp.
