While various members of the business community all saw the value of free enterprise, they disagreed on exactly how such an economy should function. These disagreements came to light at the First International Conference of Manufacturers in New York on December 3rd-5th of 1951. This conference consisted primarily of executive heads of mass production companies from the United States, as well as European Industrialists that had toured American factories. The Conference discussed many aspects of business, such as policies on production, marketing, distribution, employee relations, public relations, and several others. The scan provided includes a notable excerpt of an address by Thomas R. Jones, the chairman of Daystrom Inc., a management holding company.
