The "Me Decade" ... double digit inflation rages, as do fed-up consumers ... the Watergate scandal shocks a nation ... the Equal Rights Amendment comes of age ... the energy crisis forces rationing and energy conservation ... Iran hostage crisis begins ... wage and price controls ... "Star Wars" ushers in a new era in movies ... "stagflation" is born as a word and an economic condition ... "Saturday Night Fever" plays to the disco generation ... the Dow languishes around 1,000.
