April 21, 1996
The iceberg is already grinding into the bow plates of the "USS Economy," but James Pinkerton ("Learn to Earn Is the New Mantra," Column Right, April 17) and other pundits and executives are busy rearranging the deck chairs. They say that all we need to do to prepare our economy, our society, for the crunch of the technological revolution bearing down on us at flank speed, with exponential effects, is improve our "educational" system. The effects of this new industrial revolution are already upon us; improved "training" for jobs that have disappeared into the maw of the computer won't hack it. There must be economic remedies of equally revolutionary effect.

Gorbachev heads west today for the first tour of the United States by a Soviet leader since Nikita S. Khrushchev tramped through Iowa cornfields 31 years ago. The Gorbachev tour, with stops scheduled in Minneapolis and San Francisco, has one underlying theme: trade.

Our plate is full! Will someone please inform President Bush. A Bali nightclub has been bombed, with many deaths ("Al Qaeda Blamed for Bali Bombing," Oct. 15). An oil tanker has been attacked, Marines in Kuwait were shot at and killed, the Philippines is under attack, a sniper is loose in Washington and President Pervez Musharraf in Pakistan is slipping. The president does not seem to have enough and wants to start some more fires. Who will pay for all this? He beats the war drums and Republicans fall in behind him as the USS Economy is sinking.
