Economic growth is the force that drives almost all aspects of American society. For over half a century, CED has advocated business and public policies that would enhance the opportunities for all Americans to improve their lives. In addressing a broad range of policy issues, CED has argued that economic growth and economic oppor- tunity are usually complementary. Without growth, resources will be unavailable to widen opportunity. Without broadly available opportunity, we will fail to fulfill the democratic charge of the nation's founders and may reduce our potential for economic growth as well. CED and the Marshall Plan ""We...recommend that the United States should undertake a broad program of economic cooperation with Western Europe.

Committee for Economic Development, An American Program of European Economic Cooperation (New York, NY: 1948), pp.10-11
