Re: Retardation of technology.
- I agree with you Mr. Crawford on getting the car out of the city or
I think I need to rephrase my question. What I wanted to know is that
if we didn't hold back research in the general sense, would we have
something like, or something close to The Jetsons?
I was just wondering because I read that in the past, 1949, General
Motors along with Standard Oil of California and Firestone Tire and
Rubber Company were convicted for conspiring against highly effecient
urban electric-transit systems with bus operations which would
contract never to buy new equipment using any fuel or means of
propulsion other than petroleum. (Soource: Morton Mintz, Power Inc.,
1976, excerpt by Citizens for Balanced Transportation, Lakewood, CO).
