Penguin / Pelican, 1966, Paperback, Book Condition: Near Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: N/A, First Edition
red titles spine; cover design by Bruce Robertson; "What is it that places American industry, as a whole, so far ahead of the world? The talent of businessmen, the good sense of unions, the attitude of government, the intensity of competition, or just a wealth of raw materials? This new Pelican takes a dispassionate look at how American industry is managed, how the key decisions are reached, and how managers are trained (at institutions like the Harvard Business School) to make these decisions; what lessons, the author asks, can Britain learn from American experience? The book emphasizes the high esteem in which business has always been held in the United States - hence the high calibre of American businessmen. At the same time, the author argues, actions by government have made a big contribution to American prosperity."; previous owner's name on front endpaper; some browning (from age) to spine & extremities; including index - 215 pages.
