Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Feb1976, Vol. 32 Issue 2, p47
The article discusses the dynamic equilibrium economy which sees the co-existence of increased living standards and wise use of the world's finite energy resources. It examines the economic policies for a workable equilibrium economy, and focuses on the steps by which opposition to the necessary policies can be rebutted. Finally, it discusses how problems such as food shortage, recession and energy shortage can be handled in a manner that will contribute the most to solving the emergent long-term problems.
