Introduction Despite 50 years of development experience, fundamental questions remain unanswered. The world still lacks a comprehensive theoretical framework that adequately explains such phenomenon as the accelerating velocity of development exhibited by East Asian countries, the failure of Malthusian projections, the growing contribution of non-material resources not subject to depletion, the apparent failure of market policies in the transition of Eastern Europe, and conflicting predictions about the future of work based on the contrary recent experiences of North America and Western Europe. A profusion of economic theories provide explanations for specific expressions of development, but none unite the pieces into a unified theory that adequately defines the central principles, process and stages of development.
That the rate of degeneration is progressively accelerating constitutes a cause for great alarm, particularly since this is taking place in spite of the advance that is being made in modern science along many lines of investigation. Alexis Carrel in his treatise "Man, the Unknown" states: Medicine is far from having decreased human sufferings as much as it endeavors to make us believe.
Indeed, the number of deaths from infectious diseases has greatly diminished. But we still must die in a much larger proportion from degenerative diseases. After reviewing the reduction in the epidemic infectious diseases he continues as follows: All diseases of bacterial origin have decreased in a striking manner.
Nevertheless, in spite of the triumphs of medical science, the problem of disease is far from solved. Modern man is delicate. Eleven hundred thousand persons have to attend the medical needs of , other persons.
Every year, among this population of the United States, there are about , illnesses, serious or slight. In the hospitals,beds are occupied every day of the year. The organism seems to have become more susceptible to degenerative diseases.

The report includes a census of the health conditions of all the groups constituting the population of the United States--records of the health status and of the economic status of 2, individuals living in various sections, in various types of communities, on various economic levels.
The data include records on every age-group. He makes the following interpretations based upon the assumption that the 2, offer a fair sampling of the population, and he indicates the conclusions which may be drawn regarding conditions of status for the total population of some , people.
Every day one out of twenty people is too sick to go to school or work, or attend his customary activities. Every man, woman and child on the average in the nation suffers ten days of incapacity annually.
