Facing Up to 1975

Why 1975 will be a "significant and dramatic year in our contemporary history." Since 1971, a period of "considerable material prosperity joined with a period of not inconsiderable inflation." The results of those factors. The contemplation of a recession. Four considerations that might affect our conventional thinking about material progress: ecological, economic, political, sociological. A discussion of each follows. A number of questions to study: Can democracy exist without social economic growth? Can democracy endure prolonged inflation? Can democracy survive without an effective international system? A discussion of each follows. A concluding warning about the seriousness of the problems facing us in 1975.
