ABSTRACT
Analyzes the criticism of Point Four program of the U.S. which provides for U.S. foreign aid aimed at providing technological skills, knowledge and equipment to poor nations throughout the world. Importance assumed by the Program for the U.S. because as a creditor nation the later is dependent on international stability and cooperation; Stress on the necessity of a basic, long-range development program, geared to helping distressed countries help themselves to become permanently strong partners in the community of free nations; Suggestion that local investment should be encouraged to finance the long-range development of Point Four pilot projects; Arguments in favor of merging more that 20 overseas U.S. economic programs into one development agency.
