Our society must increase its ability to learn and adapt.



Technological change has produced more wealth and affluence, more consumption, more education, more communication, and more travel in our century than was produced in all preceding centuries. It has also changed society in fundamental ways and produced such crises as are examined in Part II of this book. Society does not yet know how to respond rapidly and effectively to these crises and it may not learn how to do so in time. Tnerefore, there is an urgent need to change our society in ways that increase its ability to learn and adapt. (RP 5)
