ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the departure of Charles E. Wilson from the post of Defense Mobilizer. This can prove to be a boon to efficient operation of the Defense Production Program and to the achievement of economic stabilization. Though he was a presidential appointee, the reports of his Council of Economic Advisors have repeatedly pointed out the deficiency in Wilson's planning and performances. Under Wilson's leadership, United States' productive might was still operating on a "business as usual" basis. The new Mobilization Director will have a heavy task in repairing the damage to the Economic Stabilization Program done by Wilson's insistence on acting as the defender of big business, in the matter of the steel wage case.
