For example, under the auspices of the New York City Youth Board an attempt has been made to create an interdepartmental neighborhood service center. Sociology in Action: Social planning, in a way can be understood as the application of social scientific knowledge to help solve social problems. Extra information introduced into resources planning results in a reduction of physical waste and a stabilization of the cost of producing raw materials. .

All approaches have been used. The technology thus far evolved in the West will be unable to cope with the transformation of still lower-grade resources into the manyfold increase in the output of raw materials that will be required. This is especially true in democratic nations. Since the variables in this paradigm are affected by changes in the population and power structure of the American city, the analysis is best carried out historically. When this exercise is carried out, as by Landsberg and his colleagues see Resources for the Future 1963 , the future for such resource-rich territories as appears secure for at least a generation.

Not only was there total planning for the war itself, but plans for postwar reconstruction began to materialize, in and some other countries, almost as soon as the war started. Liberalism and the Social Grounds of Knowledge.
Low-income neighborhoods and residents cannot pay the taxes needed to provide them with municipal services, and the exodus of middle-class residents, stores, and industries to the suburbs is also depriving the city of its most profitable sources of tax income. Ossowski, Stanislaw 1959 Social Conditions and Consequences of Social Planning. Brager, George 1965 The Indigenous Worker: A New Approach to the Social Work Technician. The master planners did not realize that the ends they sought were opposed by many voters, that most city residents place less value on parks and open space than planning ideology dictated, and that most residents do not center their life on the , as the neighborhood unit plan proposed.
