The world over, leisure time has increased tremendously since World War II. In this time period social problems and maladies have also increased. Frustrations, nervous break downs, broken marriages, alcoholism and crime rates are directly related to too much time with nothing to do. Combine this with the permissiveness that has permeated our culture and the attitude of doing just enough to get by, and the problems are multiplied workers often lose pride in their workmanship and their performance begins to go down. When performance goes down, shoddy merchandise is produced and shoddy Merchandise does no find a ready market because consumers anywhere demand quality. They turn to foreign imports and the local producer is caught in the squeeze by lowered sales volume. Every nation must resell the idea of performance and honest effort for an honest day’s pay. Surely the world owes us a living, but we have to work for it. We have to reverse the philosophy of doing little and collecting much or we will be caught in the pinch of pricing ourselves out of quality products and services. The only plan that is going to work over the long haul is an internal change in our philosophy. We must produce the quality merchandise people. demand at the right price or the consumer will turn more and more to imported products, Fortunately, we can do this, we say this without any mental reservation, because the local worker, under controlled tests, has consistently out produced his counterparts on project after project. Better quality means better price. Honest efforts, not higher tariffs in the solution to the problem.

Q.48. The issue of low quality products can be addressed through:

(1) Honest workmanship

(2) Imposition of higher tariffs on imported goods

(3) Lowering the production volume

(4) Hiring of non-local workers

Q.49. How can we move towards quality products that people demand?

(1) Importing more and more foreign goods

(2) By working for longer hours

(3) Maintaining our existing philosophy of work

(4) Produce quality products and price them properly

Q.50. The idea of honest performance is linked to:

(1) Higher Prices for local products

(2) Earning an honest day’s pay
