Panel discussion on the topic of public housing development and regulation: thousands of workers are looking for homes in towns humming with defense activity. Who should provide houses - government or private capital? Is a housing shortage delaying the defense program?

Hosted by Lyman Bryson
Series note: panelists discussed the topics around a table rigged with concealed microphones.
