View the President's Schedule

A brief meeting with Brazil Pres. Elect Neves. This is Brazils 1st move toward Democracy in 20 yrs. He faces a rough time & a huge debt. This can be blamed on the Minister of Ec’s. who it would seem handled things so as to torpedo the new Presidents chances. I wish Pres. Neves well & hope we can be of help.

An interesting lunch with “The Futurists.” This is a group of men & women who are engaged in various kinds of projections for business & industries. Some are academicians. I’m happy to say we weren’t too far apart on our ideas about where we are going & what we should be doing. We agree that many of our social programs were started without thought as to where they might be taking us & how they could make worse the problem they were intended to solve. For example did the “war on poverty” actually increase poverty because it removed any need or incentive for people to become independent. Off to Camp D.—had to drive again—low clouds, rain & icing conditions.
