Got to give him credit - 18.5 percent of the way into the period he is talking about, and his predictions are not too off the mark. He tends to be an optomist (more than I was in 1976), he didn't mention super power rivalries, and even anticipates global warming, if you read it close enough.

This is an excellent book on the future for those who want to predict it and for those who are just curious. It was written during a time in which Americans were somewhat gloomy about over-population, depletion of resources, and future wars; and yet it predicted an optimistic scenario which history has proven correct over the last 20 years. Furthermore it gives some insight on how to make sucessful predictions for the long term. There are 18 tables and 11 figures illustrating how we (rich and poor alike) are likely to be better off in the future.
