Progress without Poverty: Socially Responsible Economic Growth

By Peter S. Albin | Go to book overview

Bibliographic Notes

CHAPTER 1
1.
See Jonathan Shell, The Time of Illusion (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1976). Shell claims that Nixon's overt actions, the policies and programs of his administration, were guided by the same plan for assuming despotic control of the state that governed his covert actions and adventures. Economic policy was conceived of as a political modality, an instrument that could be used to foment divisions and isolate enemies.
2.
See Robert L. Heilbroner, An Inquiry into the Human Prospect (New York: Norton, 1974). Heilbroner draws a terrifying picture of a near future in which the growth impulse has died: stagnation coupled with competition for insufficient product at both the international and national levels has repression of individual expectations and the establishment of totalitarian national states as its inevitable consequences.
3.
It should be noted that "mismanagement" is an established analytical category within a taxonomy of crises associated with advanced capitalism. Jurgen Habermas in Legitimation Crises (Boston: Beacon, 1975) devotes considerable attention to the "steering problem" in state capitalism (pp. 61-68). In Habermas's scheme there can be a "... rationality deficit in public administration [which] means that the state apparatus cannot under given boundary conditions adequately steer the economic system" (P.47).

It is chilling to note that in one very-official (but ostensibly private) circle blame for the "mismanagement" problem is assigned instead to the polity. See Michael J. Crozier, Samuel P. Huntington, and Joji Watanuki, The Crisis of Democracy: Report on the Governability [!] of Democracies to the Trilateral Commission (New York: New York University Press, 1975).

4.
Geoffrey Barraclough, "The End of an Era," New York Review of Books, 27 June, 1974.
5.
Michael Harrington, The Accidental Century (New York: Penguin, 1967).
6.
Harrington, Accidental Century, p. 13.
7.
Harrington argues that socialized production is the only defense against the technological imperative.
8.
Michael Harrington, The Other America (New York: Penguin, 1962), pp. 15-19 and chapter 2.
9.
Harrington's view on causation in a technically oriented economy oversimplifies an extremely complex historical process. The pattern of accidental adaptation is only one of many that emerge in a broad, fully developed history. See, for example, David
