"No matter how isolated from
the world we Americans feel from
time to time, we are truly not
isolated," he said. "We are touched
by events around the globe and are
more a part of the world economy
than we imagine."
With the year 2000 just over a
decade away. Brooks said "it’s time
to take a furturistic look at what
lies ahead of us. This area is be
coming recognized more and more
as an important economic region
in the southeastern United States.
The community should take advan
tage of this opportunity to look
ahead in terms of our economy."

nomist for the World Bank's East

population, health and nutrition.
