15 At least in the beginning, the atmosphere also proved congenial to those who shared a vision of planning the economy in cooperation with big business and agriculture.  He was a reformer who demanded the upper hand for government in this partnership, but he looked forward, instead of seeking through the use of antitrust to turn the clock back to the distant nineteenth­century world of smaller economic units.  Though he must have understood that the New Deal was not as much of a meritocracy as his boss tried to make it, he shared Frank's dedication.

99 Like his mentor, Fortas believed that the best reformer was a neutral expert.  He avoided examining every line in the court's opinion but made instead a more sweeping policy argument, based upon empirical and sociological data, that wage assignments themselves were ill­conceived.  Like his concept of family, his view of law proved less romantic and moralistic, and more pragmatic and efficient, than that of his intellectual forebears.  Fortas contended that inclusion would show the journal's evenhandedness.

By the middle of his third year of law school Fortas was beginning to think about career opportunities, and Douglas wrote New York lawyers about his prize student.  Yale had provided him with a jurisprudence to guide him and with mentors who would propel him to power.
