Is Disneyland a symptom of cultural decline from a
cultural-evolutionist perspective, as V. Geiger suggests? More
significant, probably, is the underlying shift from a manufacturing to a
service-oriented economy, as discussed by M. Harris in his *America Now*
(1981). If we think of this from a global-cultural perspective, though,
the productive declines of the "advanced" economies may play an
important part in the economic--and ultimately the
political--integration of the world as a single society. --Bob Graber
