(Upon Reflection series)
Host Marcia Alvar talks with Lewis Branscomb, Director of the Science Technology and Public Policy Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. After 40 years of harnessing American technology to fight enemies in the Eastern Block, we find ourselves scrambling to compete with our friends in the West. Professor Branscomb discusses how America can best meet the challenge. He discusses the history of economic change, research and development in the 1960's, and how we didn't take advantage of the technology revolution that we ourselves created. He points out how Japan became a production centered economy.
