This book explores the foundation of European management philosophy at a dramatic moment in European history: the Cold War has ended; Western capitalism has triumphed over communism. The book reflects on the role of business and management that has emerged in Western capitalism and it searches for the roots of moral philosophy and the philosophies of management derived from the history of economic thought. It traces such ideas from the late 18th century works, Quesnay and Smith, down through the 19th 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.
