    When in money trouble, it taxed its dealers. This class of managers would replace capitalism. The seminar was held along the banks of the Douro River, Portugal, on October However, Burnham has made other predictions besides these. Much of the book is a historical review of these processes, beginning with the colonial era and the early decades of independence. In the years since World War II institutions of higher learning have increasingly engaged in a conscious effort to find ways and means of using their resources with greater efficiency.

    This transformation reduced the number of transactions involved in the flow of goods, increased speed and regularity, and so lowered costs and improved productivity of the overall distribution system. However, it is not so simple as that. The instruments of professionalism—societies, journals, university training, and specialized consultants—hardly existed in the U. He was the individual entrepreneur, who owned the whole or the greater share of a factory or mine or shop or steamship company or whatever it might be, and actively managed his own enterprise; perhaps to retire in old age in favour of management by his heirs. For salaried managers the continuing existence of their enterprises was essential to their lifetime careers. So much for the United States.

    The germ of truth in all this is that the smaller European states, demoralized by the chaos and stagnation of the pre-war years, collapsed rather more quickly than they need have done, and might conceivably have accepted the New Order if the Germans had kept same of their promises. The entrepreneurs continued to look on their enterprises as small-business owners previously had. In all other manufacturing enterprises the volume of production was not enough to bring the subdivision of labor nor the integration of several production processes within a single establishment. Growth, moreover, entailed mobilization of funds, whether via bank loans or public sales of ownership shares, and this too often countered family interests.

The Managerial Revolution: What Is Happening in the World

Though they were often far from clear about what they wanted out of history, they did not just sit back and let history take its own course. As shortly as I can summarize it, the thesis is this: Capitalism is disappearing, but Socialism is not replacing it. One silent evidence of this modernity: the large number of watch and clock dealers and repairers.

The Managerial Revolution

The growing reliance on professionally trained managers entailed an assault on the structures and habits of personal and familial enterprise. But it does constitute unblinkable evidence that, whatever its moral quality, Socialism is no going to come. Basically, the managers are the agents.

In the United States, it was the chemical and even more the automobile manufactures that led the way. For salaried managers the continuing existence of their enterprises was essential to their lifetime careers.

For Burnham, the only thing that defines a political system is who is exercising power. Most Americans who think of the matter at all would prefer to see the world divided between two or three monster states which had reached their natural boundaries and could bargain with one another on economic issues without being troubled by ideological differences.

Later, the need to justify the Russian dictatorship and to explain away the obvious resemblances between Communism and Nazism clouded the issue still more. KennanBurnham was invited to lead the "Political and Psychological Warfare" division of the Office of Policy Coordination, a semi-autonomous part of the agency.

But if one considers the world movement as a whole, his conclusions are difficult to resist; and even in the United States the all-prevailing faith in laissez-faire may not survive the next great economic crisis. A second is that, although integration led to more concentration, it rarely resulted in monopoly.
