Book Description

"The basic economic resource - 'the means of production', to use the economist's term - is no longer capital, nor natural resources, nor 'labour'. it is an will be knowledge."
With penetrating insight Peter Drucker describes the changes that are affecting politics, business and society itself.

It is vital that we are aware of and understand these changes in order to benefit from the opportunities that the future has to offer.

Reviews

Drucker writes 'that knowledge has become the resource, rather than a resource is what makes our society 'post-capitalist'. It changes, fundamentally, the structure of society. It creates new social dynamics. It creates new politics.' ..in a couple of
paragraphs, he makes more sense of macro-economic policy than most life-time specialists.
Financial Times
'..his boldest book...the range is breathtaking'
The Independent
'...Drucker, the most enduring management thinker of our time.'
