The Twentieth Century Fund Annual Report 1971.
Twentieth Century Fund, New York, NY.
Research continued and new studies were launched in four major areas: communications, urban problems, politics, and economic issues. The foci of these studies are described briefly. Projects in communications are examining flows of news, media monopoly, press freedoms under pressure, public affairs broadcasting, press councils, political access to television and radio, and the "little" literary magazines. International conferences have also been held on satellite communications. Research in urban problems is examining community development corporations, the job crisis for black youth, democratic development of new towns, New York City, jails, and city mayors. Research on economic issues is looking at women and employment, multinational corporations, public pension systems, Haiti, rural development in Third World nations, planning and budgeting in low-income countries, and capitalism and development in India. Political research is concerned with foundations, constitutional change, youth and electoral politics, political parties, private insurance and health care, the changing South, the demography of American juries, and the contemporary commune movement.
