0 Reviews
This book explores the foundation of European management philosophy at a dramatic moment in European history: the Cold War has ended and Western capitalism has triumphed over communism. The book reflects on the role of business and management that has emerged in Western capitalism and searches for the roots of moral philosophy and the philosophies of management derived from the history of economic thought. It traces ideas from the late eighteenth-century works, Quesnay and Smith, down through the nineteenth-century to the present. The closing chapter of the book sets out ten principles for tight management in a socio-economic doctrine of ideal enterprise and good management.
