ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the book "America's Needs and Resources: A New Survey," by J. Frederic Dewhurst. The book raises question of the objectives of the research organizations. The Twentieth Century Fund believes that its research should serve a useful purpose. It should be concerned with areas of interest and importance to the public and with specific problems facing the American people. One of the most troublesome problems in research is to obtain required funds without obligation to present a particular viewpoint. The great success of the National Bureau of Economic Research evident in its tremendous influence in empirical economics has been associated with a concentration on the collecting and organizing of facts for the use of others.
