Neglect of the relation among the socio-economic method and its traditional atmosphere has had dangerous effects some time past, for instance - the pollutants of the average surroundings (water, air and soil) through generating, utilizing and eating the goods of our industrialized economic system, - the forseeable exhaustion of usual assets by way of carrying on with the rise of commercial construction. many of the contemporary actions, either in study and in adminis­ tration, opposed to those affects were technically orientated, with the purpose of stimulating and introducing new applied sciences of produc­ tion and new items to decrease the environmental pollutants. yet those efforts, that are after all worthwhile, can't be winning in forthcoming the purpose - which should still and needs to within the long term view be outlined because the improvement of society in stability with the average setting. for that reason, as well as an check­ ment of applied sciences, emphasis could be wear an review of socio-economic structures.
