THE FABULOUS FUTURE: America in 1980

From this magazine, these articles all by men of distinction represent a broad view as well as a long view, forecast the future of 1980 based on present probabilities. David Sarnoff (Chairman, RCA) and John Von Neuman (A.E.C.) survey the technological age and major problems of survival. George Meany (President, AFL-CIO) breaks down labor's ""more""; Nathan M. Pusey (President of Harvard) has a stimulating commentary on education; Earl Warren (Chief Justice) deals with the law as it faces the challenge of accelerating technology and world political struggle; George M. Humphrey (Secretary of the Treasury), maintains a sound dollar as one objective for the future; Adlai Stevenson subscribes to ""democratic capitalism"" and the common aims of government and business; Robert E. Sherwood argues that ""There is no longer any alternative to peace""; Dupont's Greenewalt writes of progress in general terms, and Charles P. Taft and Fortune's Luce deal with the individual in 1980- and the purpose of human life.... The prospects before us- rather than predictions or projections- these articles represent a solid, substantial viewpoint- the forward look is in terms of the status quo.
