This is side A of the third tape from the annual Drucker Symposium of 1987. This recording is from the luncheon session of day one, on April 29, 1987. William D. Guth is the moderator and Dale Zand is the panelist. The topic for this section is the future of free enterprise. Drucker gives some brief history on free enterprise with various countries and throughout wars. He focuses a lot on pension funds and hostile take-overs. He discusses defense against take-overs, the aftermath, and why he believes they will become obsolete. Drucker also states that it is more important for management to balance between long term and short term than to focus on just long term.
