R. Buckminster Fuller on education by R. Buckminster Fuller( Book )

33 editions published between 1962 and 1966 in 4 languages and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was one of the most innovative and influential thinkers of the twentieth century. Best known as the inventor of the geodesic dome, Fuller sought out long-term, technology-led solutions to the world's most pressing social and environmental problems. His prodigious creative output-from visionary architectural works and experimental structures to expressive drawings and poetic musings-foreshadowed today's green design and prefab housing movements. R. Buckminster Fuller: World Man documents his never-before-published 1966 Kassler lecture at Princeton University School of Architecture. Delivered at the height of his career (Fuller had appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1964), he used the lecture to reflect on and synthesize his most significant concepts. In addition to a faithful facsimile of the lecture's typewritten transcript, the book includes an introductory essay on Fuller's work, a glossary of key terms and phrases, and an interview with Robert Geddes, the dean responsible for bringing Fuller to teach and lecture at the school"--

The less developed and more developed countries are frequently compared. Factual textual material accompanies many charts. Most of the data given are drawn from sources compiled in the second half of the 1970s.

The report presents quantitative assessments of basic human needs in the areas of food, health, education, shelter, and clothing and considers how these needs may be met in ways harmonious with environmental and developmental objectives. The target group consists of those who are below or just below poverty line. The book is presented in six chapters. Chapter I considers the dimensions of need. The chapter presents world statistics on undernourishment, literacy, income, life expectancy, and inadequate housing. It stresses that provision for psychosocial as well as physiological needs must be made. Chapter ii suggests three lines of approach in assessing priority areas: the reference country, unit household, and life cycle methods. Chapter iii discusses ways of establishing basic need levels, deficits, and targets. A review of population trends is included. Chapter iv considers alternatives in development and the needs/environment interaction. Chapter v discusses ways to meet needs deficiencies while considering environmental and developmental objectives within which needs would be met. Topics include food and agriculture, health services, education, shelter, and clothing. Chapter vi considers directions of technological development and the role of international trade in determining the degrees of self-reliance and interdependence of developing countries.

Of 3,000 organizations and individuals in a variety of institutional settings at different levels of engagement with future studies surveyed by mail, 433 organizations and 527 individuals from 50 countries responded.

The risk of social security benefit rule changes : some international evidence by John McHale( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against a background of projections of sharply increasing elderly dependency rates, workers in the major industrial economies are apprehensive that their social security benefit entitlements will be cut before or after they retire, leaving them with inadequate retirement income. This paper looks at recent benefit rule changes in the G7 countries to see what can be learned about such political risk in PAYG pension systems. From this small sample, I find that projections of rising costs under current rules are inducing reforms, and that these reforms often have a major impact on the present discounted value of promised benefits for middle-aged and younger workers. Usually, however, the benefits of the retired and those nearing retirement are protected. The phasing in of benefit cuts raises the question as to why younger workers are willing to take significant cuts in their implicit wealth while protecting the currently old. One possible answer is explored through a simple model: these workers fear even larger cuts in their benefits if the tax burden on future workers rises too high
