Item #d90jul44

Energy Aftermath, T.H. Lee, B.C. Ball Jr., R.D. Tabors, 288 pp., 1990, $24.95 + shipping (Harvard Business School).

Three well-known scholar-practitioners discuss how all sectors of society contributed to the blunders in the energy industry: academics and scientists oversold their ability to analyze and forecast; business leaders searched for simplistic solutions; policy makers preferred high-sounding slogans to studying the complexities of the issue; consumer groups promoted their causes with little reference to economic and market realities. Offers a future approach with many paths to integrate energy systems.
