Abstract

Interview with Lord Edwin Plowden, chief planning officer of the Economic Planning Board 1947-1953 and Head of Treasury Planning Staff, and his assistant Douglas Allen, speak of Committee established at the NATO conference 1951 to formulate a military programme, with Averell Harriman as Chairman and with Jean Monnet and Plowden as vice-Chairmen. The Committee was temporary and compensated for lack of power in OEEC and therefore pushed some of the emphasis of the economic discussions away from the OEEC into NATO this was due also to the fact that economic work was connected with defense programmes. They speak also of success of European Recovery Programme.
