THE UNDISCIPLINED CITY IN A RESOURCE SHORT WORLD

The U.S. city is claimed to be suffereing from a serious breakdown of discipline. While population and economic trends do offer grounds for hope, greater discipline will be needed to cope with the world's rising population and dwindling resources. Scarcity will make the politics of planning easier while the placement and compatibility of both public and private development will be determined increasingly by energy and resource costs. More economical means of transporting people will be perfected. There will be more questioning of the waste and personal extravagance which characterizes present society. While the standard of living will likely go down, greater cooperation and self sacrifice may actually improve the quality of life.
