A paper presented at a research application conference in 1975. The author shows how The Rand Corporation has approached the analysis of energy problems. Rand has examined the historical and the present use of energy and has studied the effects of supply, cost, and government policy on the ways consumers use energy. The author pleads for better analytic tools to guide policymakers, because not enough is known today to predict with confidence the effects--and the side effects of energy policies. 37 pp.
