Testimony Before the Commission on Manpower, Automation and Technology.
A discussion of the difficulties in determining the impact of automation on industries. A manager cannot accurately answer the question because he cannot run an experiment with all factors constant except automation. Because what is happening is less important than why, the author finds that solutions involving reduction of the total production by society are wrong. The paper concludes that too few scientists are working in the public sector to accommodate the great rate of change in the private sector. 9 pp.
