Tough question and there's no real answer.  First off it depends on how you define a computer.

Com ...

Every one of the items mentioned worked fine in the 50s and 60s without the aid of computers, but it would mean returning to old style tried and tested methods.

It's a nice idea in theory however the practicality of the modern world dictates a high level of reliance on computers and allied systems.  No computers and there is no research in medicine or current diagnostic devices such as CAT, PET or MRI scanners, ultrasounds, modern X-ray and so on, let alone research in to genetics, modern medications, communications and all areas of science that are complex in nature.  Without computers modern society would literally fall apart in a few weeks.
