ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the democratic control of atomic energy development in the U.S. It is stated that though atomic energy involves a technology developed and held in restricted form by the Government, it has industrial potential for the national welfare and for the nation's business. Domestically, it is stated that atomic energy has a potential effect on the economic balance of forces. It is stated that active interplay of influence involving persons and groups outside the Government is equally important for the best operation of the atomic energy industries in the U.S.
