New Yorker;2/1/1969, Vol. 44 Issue 50, p65
The author reflects on politics in the U.S. in 1969. Arthur Burns, who is believed to be the most influential adviser of Richard Nixon, speaks with authority, saying that he thought some programs might be in shape in March. The U.S. is not in trouble because of the strains of Vietnam war has imposed on the economy but because of the strains it has imposed on the society. Nixon's problem is to build a broader coalition that can support him in his first term.
