In early 1961 the Ho-Institut fur Wirtschaftsforschung (Ho-Institute for financial study) tested an "African reviews Centre" with the aid of the Fritz-Thyssen-Foundation to behavior study into the industrial and political difficulties of constructing nations, with spe cial connection with the African countries. by way of investigations into thestructure and clients of improvement within the constructing nations, the experiences Centre will goal at contributing in the direction of the production of a genuine foundation, at the foundation of which the Federal Republic's increase ment coverage might be conducted successfully. during this "age of improvement" the social and financial sciences are faced with manifold projects. In fixing those, interdisciplinary co operation will turn out positive or even crucial, if mistaken and slender decisions are to be shunned. Co-operation among scientists and institutes engaged in several branches of study will make attainable a greater und er status of the advanced sensible courting which make certain fiscal occasions and their mutations open air Western business society than might be typically accomplished via an remoted technique. clever total monetary making plans, for instance, calls for technological research simply up to an exact wisdom of social constitution or actual context. At this element the economist needs to co-operate heavily with the engineer if he needs to prevent wasting his method generally styles of development. For, "des lors que nous parions (du developpement) en quantites globales, nous ne parions de rien" (LoUIs ]OSEPH LEBRET).
