Drucker discusses economic life in terms of values, integrity, character,
knowledge, vision, responsibility, self-control, social integration, teamwork,
community, competence, social responsibility, the quality of life,
self-fulfillment, leadership, duty, purpose, dignity, meaning -- but rarely
money. He defends profit, but as if it were broccoli: a distasteful obligation
of managers who would rather be reading Kierkegaard.|
