Automation and Technological Change

Excerpt

The chapters in this volume, edited by John T. Dunlop, were not intended to provide a detailed program for private and public policies on automation and technological change. They were designated to eliminate some of the exaggeration, suspicion, and mystery that have surrounded the subject; to provide historical perspective and factual information as to the impact of automation and technological change; and to sharpen some of the central issues for public discussion.

The first discussion of this subject sponsored by The American Assembly took place May 3-6, 1962, in a national meeting at Arden House, on the Harriman (New York) Campus of Columbia University. The final report of that Assembly begins on page 175.

The views expressed herein are those of the individual authors and the participants and not of either The American Assembly, which by charter and legal limitation takes no position, or of the Maurice and Laura Falk Foundation, whose generous support made this Twenty-first American Assembly program possible.

Henry M. Wriston
President
