Abstract
The 'problematique' of modern industrialized society consists - inter alia - of the dilemmas of growth, control, and work-roles. The optimization of future information systems could, if carried out properly, alleviate the 'problematique' somewhat as well as possibly revitalize capitalism itself. However, the significant future development is not the manufacture of large-scale integrated circuits. Rather it is the development of appropriate software which effectively capitalizes on this new form of massive intelligence, determining the role and direction of crisis management and long-term planning and forecasting as aids to the decision-making process.
