The Club of Rome

At the invitation of Aurelio Peccei and Alexander King, some 30 European scientists, economists and industrialists gathered in Rome to discuss global problems. The meeting was a monumental flop. King had asked a colleague at the OECD, the astrophysicist Erich Jantsch, to prepare a background paper for discussion. It was a brilliant essay, but too abstract, complicated and controversial. At a dinner afterwards with a small group of participants, they agreed they had been “too foolish, naive and impatient” and simply did not understand the subject enough. They decided to spend the following year educating themselves and call this discussion circle the “Club of Rome”.
