The article discusses the relative roles of government and private enterprises of the United States for the control of atomic energy. The Atomic Energy Act of the U.S. has been amended to encourage research and development by private concerns. The case for private development of atomic energy centers in electric power. It is a very long-range case at best. On the other hand, some people opine that an absolute government monopoly of production of fissionable material is indispensable to effective domestic control of atomic energy. However, it is opined that there is no cause for discouraging enterprise where it desires to bear risks.
