Part of the Chapman and Hall Advanced Industrial Technology Series book series (AITS)


As American industry turns to the 2lst century, the major thrust is to come from the application of technology. In a maturing society, the gross national product (GNP) from the output of physical labor obeys the economic law of diminishing returns. For each added increment of labor, there is a reduced increment of production. The increase in GNP will, of necessity, come from added efficiencies of technological capacity.
