Toward Balanced Growth: Quantity With Quality
Executive Office of the President, Washington, DC.
This report by National Goals Research Staff, established by President Nixon, is designed not as a listing of specific national goals to be sought but as a springboard for discussion and an aid to decision. It does not presume to say what our choices should be. Rather, it defines the questions, analyzes the debates, and examines the alternative sets of consequences concerning: population growth and distribution; environment; education; basic natural science; technology assessment; consumerism; and, economic choice and balanced growth. It is preceded by two other Federally sponsored Goals Reports produced since 1960: "Goals for Americans", 1960, the report of President Eisenhower's Commission on National Goals; and "Toward a Social Report", (SO 001 841) sponsored by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, 1969.
