The Metric System and Small Business.
Barbrow, Louis E.
Due to the increasing demand on the United States to convert to the metric system of measurement, this document was developed to alert owner-managers to the implications surrounding the system as well as to increase their knowledge of it. Based on the findings of a 3-year Federal study, the information presented focuses on the possibility of the U. S. changing to the metric system and the expressed anxieties associated with such a conversion. Included is a plan for national changeover to the metric system over a 10-year period. (SN)
