Peter Drucker writes James Hoopes, professor at Babson College, saying that he has attached a list of his publications. He says that the tardy acceptance of ideas such as quality management or empowerment in the United States was primarily because of union rejection and union resistance. Drucker shares that there would have been universal catastrophic illness insurance had Walter Reuther not vetoed it. He goes on to say that he helped introduce the realization that the self-governing plant community presupposed guaranteed employment security and an annual wage to Japan. The letter contains original handwritten edits and Drucker's signature.
