The article analyses the handling of economic affairs of the U.S. by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. There was no preoccupation with the more rapid growth, instead many officials in what was known as the businessman's administration were convinced that keeping prosperity rolling along was mainly a matter of getting the government to mind its own business. The president emphasized the desirability of prudence and moderation. Administration officials accepted the existence of the business cycle as the prime fact of economic life.
