ABSTRACT
The article discusses the elements of the Fair Deal program of U.S. President Harry S. Truman which he used as his campaign for running, in the re-election on 1952. The Fair Deal is described by Truman as a great improvement over the New Deal program of late President Franklin D. Roosevelt whom Truman succeeded due to Roosevelt's sudden death. The Fair Deal aims to remedy the defects of the New Deal because it was based upon ideas, and it was quite largely staffed by intellectuals.
