The Problem of the Twentieth Century:
"Poverty in the Midst of Plenty"

The Age of Abundance is upon us. Man need never again go hungry or cold. Natural resources abound, machines necessary to convert them into goods exist, and men are trained to operate these machines. The whole world now has the capability to support itself free from want and almost free from disease.

Nevertheless, many people today are still cold, hungry, and sick. In the past, when men starved, they did so because it was impossible for them to produce enough to eat. The Twentieth Century was the first time however, to see men cold, hungry, and idle in the midst of plenty.
