This is side B of the seventh tape of recordings of a course taught by Peter Drucker in 1978. He discusses the differences between family and work bonds, and how they are both equally important and can strengthen each other. He also talks about gender based labor division, and how spinning was historically done by women. It was very slow and unproductive until the invention of the spinning wheel altered the cultural, social and economic implications of that. Unmarried "spinsters" were effectively able to become respectable and productive by doing work that used to need a lot more people and time. Drucker also goes over the Chase Manhattan bank merger and what made it possible. At the end of the tape, students can be heard discussing which case they want to use for the following class.
