From 1937 to 1956, Alfred P. Sloan was chairman of General Motors; he also helped found the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation remains a major force in American cultural life today. In this NBC program from 1954, Mr. Sloan is interviewed by NBC public service manager Edward Stanley. Sloan speaks his mind about the need for positive thinking as well as rigorous analysis in business, or in any undertaking; the societal impact of decisions made by the managers of large corporations; and more specifically, the obligation he believes should be placed on business leaders to help keep the statistical level of American employment as horizontal as possible. He also comments on the need for management and labor leaders to understand each other's problems.
