At times some foresters even seem to be doubtful concerning the capacity of the nation to use all the wood 500,000,000 acres of forest land is capable of producing. Mr. Duncan analyzes the causes for the secular downward trend of lumber consumption. He points out that the majority of urban American dwellings are substandard and obsolete and suggests that a democratic welfare economy should make housing one of its major objectives. The conclusion is reached that the problems of the volume of lumber consumption are not technological but institutional and that an intelligent society would find use for all the wood the available forest land can produce.
