Amortization Schedules in Human Growth and Developments Investments: The Case for Social Mutation.
Weber, Robert E.
Decision makers, policy makers, and influential special interest groups typically view many appropriations for programs that will help the poor, the handicapped, social deviants, etc. as mere expenditures and not as investment which produce substantial results. This paper sets forth several cases which illustrate that people can be an attractive form of investment. No attempt is made to calculate the dollar value of such intangibles as increases in IQ, self-image, and family and individual stability. Consideration focuses on the size of an investment, the amount of earnings and savings which offset the investment, and rate at which that occurs. Exemplary cases include descriptions of an occupational training program for mentally retarded educables and trainables, vocational training for handicapped youths, welfare recipients manpower training, a program for confined juvenile delinquents, and treatment for convicted felons. The conclusion is reached that man is the crucial environment and investment priority. (Author/SHM)
