New York, Jan. 20—At the coming Roosevelt-Stalin-Chur
chill meeting, the most decisive conference of this war, Roose

his plan for a world security organization, Business Week de
Clares in its weeKly analysis ui
“The War and Business Abroad.”
“The president, anticipating the
biggest foreign policy fight of his
career, is preparing to use the bar
gaining strength of this country’s
enormous economic resources to a t
tain some of the international polit
ical ends he believes are necessary
if world peace is to be maintained,”
says the publication.
“Objective at the pending meet
ing will be to bribe and threaten
on such a vast economic scale that
Stalin and Churchill will be forced
to make the political concessions
necessary to sell the plan to the
senate on his return. Roosevelt
hopes to accomplish all this in time
to call a United Nations conference,
(probably at French Lick, Jnd.) not
later than March.
“There, following a minimum
commitment from the senate (al
ready hinted by Senator Vanden
berg), the decisions reached at the
Big Three conference would be
translated into a specific United

to unify this country’s vast eco

battering ram. Execution, for the
immediate future at least, will be
concentrated in the state depart

“The foreign economic adminis
tration will come under state's con
trol as soon as FEA can divorce
itself from any activities that
might embarrass state.
“Roosevelt’s most powerful bar
gaining weapons, once their blows
can be synchronized through the
economic high command, include:
“(1) Access to this country’s un
paralleled financial resources,
through the Bretton Woods banks
and the enlarged export-import
“(2) Access to this country’s
market (presumably with a greatly
enlarged reciprocal trade pro
“(3) Access to this country's
huge supplies of war surpluses, and
to its vast capacity to produce new
equipment of the most advanced
design. (Britain is being tempted
this week with a special offer to
acquire an important portion of
this country's surplus ships; Tur

have been allowed to buy airplanes;
France has been given high pri

between British capitalism and
