The nation is still in the midst of an unprecedented upward trend in prosperity and economic growth. It has already attained a level of national and per capita income which would have seemed unattainable only three decades ago. But the end is not yet iri sight and American society has defined substantiative future goals accordingly. These are goals in general which suggest opportunity for all individuals and groups to share equitably in participation and gain from this advance. If they are to be attained, these goals also require an appraisal of the nation' s policies in respect to their contribution to or restraint on attainment over the next decade.
