Summary

This paper argues that, in addition to responding to surface manifestations of imbalance in scientific manpower supply and demand, we should examine and understand far better than we now do the nature and extent of the structural forces operative on the supply and demand of scientific talent. The author reviewed the literature and the parameters of the current situation of an apparent surplus, and admits that there is no unanimity on what remedial policies the Federal Government should follow. It is suggested that long-range national manpower planning must take a very broad view both of national economic and social objectives and of alternative productive technologies and that such planning must take into account the implications for both in terms of requisite manpower. The issue of manpower supply and demand should be viewed from the perspective of formulation of more comprehensive, even if they be crude, national objectives, and from these deduce intermediate goals. This strategy might well lead to significantly different conclusions about appropriate federal policies and programs. A 32-item bibliography is included. (Author)
