    In this 6-part series Robert Heilbroner, distinguished economist and author, and Richard Paul, Director of Research and Professional Development at the Center for Critical Thinking, discuss the economic prospects for the U.S. in the next century. Will the economic success of the U.S. be determined by our ability to cultivate a work force of critical thinkers, as Paul argues, or will resources, new technologies and the laws and politics governing production and world trade outweigh any foreseeable improvements in education? In pursuit of this fundamental question, Heilbroner and Paul address this and other closely related issues such as:

    • The long and short range implications of global economic changes and the need for educational reform
    • Common misperceptions about economics and the role of economists
    • Robert Reich’s and Lester Thurow’s analysis of the U.S. economic future
    • Individualistic vs. communitarian forms of capitalism
    • Japanese vs. U.S. forms of management
    • Endemic corruption in U.S. politics and business
    • The capacity of the U.S.educational bureaucracy to adapt
    • The qualities of a critical thinking work force
