Paper Abstract

Industry does a lot of good things in our society. It provides jobs to many workers. It produces goods and services, including many valuable new products. It pays taxes that help support such useful enterprises as NASA, the National Institutes of Health and Stanford Medical School. (Corporate income taxes came to about $56 billion in 1974.) And it pays dividends to stockholders which include pension funds for professors, policemen, and other meritorious persons.
