By the year 2000 our tremendously increased capacity created by accelerating technological change will enable us to develop forecasting and analytical techniques of sufficient precision to find out about the possible futures, to single out the more desirable, and to invent the instrumentalities for their deliberate pursuit. Scientific productivity will grow tenfold, computer power will double annually, and the social scientist will be seeking interdisciplinary systems approaches to socio-political problems, all of which will enable us to develop a theory of organization that deals rationally with situations of interpersonal or international conflict.
