1. Three related questions:
a. What can we infer from "Coming of post-industrial society" about Bell's political leanings, educational background, and career path, and how does this personal context shape his conclusions?
b. Are Bell's forecasts convincing based on the evidence he presents, or is he presenting a personal utopia?
c. Who (as a political grouping) is Bell anxious to refute in the process of forecasting?
2. Who are the winners and who are the losers in Bell's projection of the post-industrial society?
3. How does the self-styled Conservative movement of the last twenty-five years fit into Bell's agenda? Why isn't the corporation "subordinate" in 2004?
