National Association of Manufacturers

 

(NAM) the largest organization of US monopolists. Founded in 1895; as of 1973, some 30,000 firms were members of the NAM, including the country’s most powerful business concerns.

The NAM plays a major role in American political and social life. The organization is headed by a board of directors. Among its officers are a president and a group of permanent, regional, and honorary vice-presidents. There are also approximately 20 standing committees which analyze and draft recommendations on problems of government policy in the USA. These include such questions as foreign policy, current economic prospects, international trade, domestic social change, influence over public opinion, labor unions and the labor movement, and taxation. The NAM’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., coordinates the activity of the organization’s regional centers.
