GENERAL ELECTRIC has a three-fold responsibility— l.o'lhc public, lo its employees, and to its owners. The 1945 annual report, jtusl printed, gives some indicatiorfof how well we met these objectives last year. General Electric's growth has come from new and better products for the public, continuously improved. Out of production efficiency have conic higher wages, increased jol:a, and the earnings needed to continue these gains. This year General Electric did not get off to ns good a start as in 19-15. But the objectives and aims of General Electric arc the same and will continue to be the same—to keep wages as high as possible, to keep prices down as far as possible, and to earn a fair profit.
