Description
Article by Peter F. Drucker on how the economy is changing in multiple sectors, and how it is mostly becoming organized around the flow of information, rather than commodities or capital. Drucker recognizes how distribution is increasingly becoming concentrated, while manufacturing is increasingly splintering, and uses multiple examples of successful corporations to demonstrate such changes. The consequence of these changes, alongside technological innovations, is that more information is now available on what occurs in the marketplace. As a result, manufacturing and distribution decisions will be increasingly based on the buying actions of consumers, producers will practice flexible manufacturing, and wholesalers and other intermediaries will become obsolete.
