The continuing failure of society to deal adequately with its problems has led to criticism that goes beyond the imperfections of a fundamentally sound social organization. Individual economic incentive and private markets, the basics of our economic organization, are condemned as inherently destructive of desirable social goals. It may be that such criticism is naive with respect to the basic history of economic organization and the prospects for meaningful alternatives. It also may be that the "solutions" offered are frequently more authoritarian than the critics allege the present system to be. We are still left to ponder the vital, long-standing, but changeable deficiencies and injustices that our system either tolerates or actively perpetuates.
