I do not think President Eisenhower's Emergency Fund for International Affairs demonstrated the products and cultural values of a free enterprise system that he hoped they would. Even though the United States' invested money in to cultural export programs such as Radio Liberty and American talk shows, individuals may have been skeptical to accept these programs. To countless individuals, this tactic may have been viewed as a way to abandon their own products and cultural values to become indoctrinated with the American way of life. While the fund was highly successful, the idea of conformity to an unfamiliar way of life may been hard for a number of individuals to accept.
