Industrial Society’s Natural Future
- Unisex life expectancy
life insurer’s disaster-corrected national averages after birth
- Industrial evolution
long-term envelope above all disasters of the leading nation’s gross domestic products (GDPs), the real (inflation-corrected) value of goods and services produced per capita p.a.
- National recoveries
optimal paths with asymptotic convergence into the industrial evolution
- Human capacity
individual combination of inherited and educated capacities; its average per capita value follows from equilibrium between all main variables.
- Annual working time
the official paid working time as part of the natural flow of time; a similar part is used for unpaid homework including reproduction; both yield with Sundays and 8 h of sleep per day the inevitable annual part of spare time required for enjoying affluence far above biologic needs
- Systems engineering
optimizes annual working time for the GDP in line with technical progress
- Physical capital
real per capita value of technical...
We thank Ron Kay (IBM San Jose/ICSI Berkeley) for 20 years of continuous encouragement through all parts of this work; our medical colleagues in Lübeck for lunchtime discussions on genetics and life expectancy; Hermann Haken, the Ph.D. thesis advisor of one of us in Stuttgart, for reviving discussions on synergetics after half a century; and Axel Hutt, the editor of this chapter, for suggesting ways how to close many gaps between theory and text. The Japanese-German Center Berlin helped understanding Monbusho’s educational reports. Yasutsugu Takeda of Hitachi and George Metakides of the European Commission’s Esprit Program supported this work with the only project that was to our knowledge jointly financed by Japan’s former Ministry of International Trade and Industry and the European Commission (Danielmeyer and Airaghi 1999). Original 20 years at AT&T Bell Labs and Siemens AG allowed deep insights into innovation, systems engineering, and business administration.
