Concern over the future of American industry has never been higher. Yankee quality and productivity levels often lag behind those of our foreign competitors. Every day, newspapers and magazines carry fresh stories on eroding domestic market shares or the takeover of yet another American firm by Asian and European concerns. Downsizing is a term children know and their parents know even better.

Mothers and fathers nationwide demand that someone take drastic measures to bring this plague under control, before it's too late. In F.I.A.T., someone does.
