The section ‘Economics in the West’ focused on aspects of economic growth and policy in the western world; for example, ‘Economic Progress in the Baltic States’, ‘United States Taxes on Company Profits’, ‘Economic Conditions of Holland Since the Departure from Gold’, and ‘Britain’s Roads’. ‘Educational Notes’ included ‘Eliminating Wastage in Education’, ‘Wardha Plan of National Education’, ‘Indian Students’ Responsibilities’, ‘Basic Education’, ‘Vocational Education’ and ‘Self-Expression, the Goal of Education’. Some themes of interest were rural reconstruction, Soviet industry, industrial conciliation in South Africa, Indian industry, public works, standard of living in India, and cooperative credit structures.
