taining united action of labor and management under adequate

petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),

ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-

wise rehabilitating industry.
