Getting from Here to There
Getting from Here to There
By Walt W. Rostow
McGraw-Hill, 1978, 271 pp

"There" is a U.S. with adequate growth, full employment, food surpluses and a mostly domestic energy supply playing a leading part in a more cooperative world than we have nowadays. The "getting there" is laid out in a series of fairly short, concrete, readable chapters on all the key issues that are inevitably a bit uneven. The best put productivity, research & development, and related matters in a good historical perspective. The whole is given a certain tone by the thought that the world is on the upswing of a long economic cycle, so governments should be especially concerned with the supply side.
