Michael S. Teitelbaum presents his new Princeton University Press book, Falling Behind?, which documents how corporate and military-industrial elites have frequently claimed in the postwar world that the U.S. is suffering from desperate shortages of scientists.  He will seek to explore why political and corporate leaders have been so prone to foment panics about scientific shortages when these often do not exist upon closer examination.
