Making the Future Work
Making the Future Work
By John Diebold
Simon & Schuster, 1984, 256 pp

This is a wide-ranging inquiry into "why things don't work anymore and what we can do about it." Government, business, labor, management, finance, the law, high technology, the handling of research and development, communications and leadership are all dealt with in a combination of analytical case studies and reasonably concrete proposals. The book contains both synthesis of widely held views and suggestions that are bound to prove highly controversial.
