Excerpt from Planning and Civil Comment, 1944 1945, Vol. 10
It is all well and good to say that planners are not to be concerned with the social aspect of their job. But planning is for people. The physical improvement of the coun try cannot be based ou money value alone since such value in itself is related to society as a whole and the individuals who make up society. Population shifts, for any reason whatsoever, have personal motives behind them. These motives will vary from a flight from the dust bowl to a search for a high paid job in a war plant or a move to a snooty subdivision because of snob appeal advertising. Those planners who believe that they can do an adequate war and postwar planning job, bas ing their ideas on the preparation of a shelf full of public works alone, are going to find that they have been working in a vacuum. Much of the planning done during the past year seems to be little more than that.
