The article discusses the production and consumption of electricity in the United States. The article states that shortages of electricity and rising real costs would impede economic growth. The private utilities from the very beginning have opposed and obstructed the construction of government power plants. The new Administration has shown little realization that an investment in natural resources now will reduce waste and erosion and yield large dividends in goods produced, income opportunities created, and taxes paid or that many of the programs initiated during the last 20 years pay for themselves in power revenues.
