Few functions of economics are more important, few more difficult, than that of indicating what the relatively distant future will bring in the way of employment, investment, production, etc. The problems involved and methods used in attacking them are clearly brought out in this volume by Simon Kuznets, William Fellner, Arthur Smithies, and others. The areas covered include long-range projection as a whole; population, manpower, and productivity; industrial parts of the economy; private capital, government expenditures, and foreign trade; and regional projection.
