The article discusses the progress made in decades of 1940s and 1950s. Assistance to the underdeveloped countries has increased substantially, virtually all the industrially advanced nations not only contribute through the United Nations but have country-to-country assistance and development programs, and many are participating in regional programs. The U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower has supported foreign aid aggressively and the U.S. not only maintains a huge program of bilateral technical assistance and bilateral lending, but it also contributes generously through United Nations agencies, the Colombo Plan and the Latin American Development Association. Great Britain, France, the German Federal Republic, the Soviet Union and other countries have also established programs for giving technical and financial assistance to underdeveloped countries. No less than 22 nations have insisted upon and won independence for their 800,000,000 people in the short period of the 1940s and 1950s. Several other nations comprising many tens of millions of people will become independent in 1960. And there is explosive unrest in many countries, on every continent--Africa, Europe, South America and even North America.
