Description
Peter Drucker writes to Carolina Biquard to discuss Argentina's depression. He advises her that he does not think that the solution for Argentina is political or economic instead he suggests that what the country needs is a greater sense of community. He writes, "Argentina is a country but not a nation." Because of these factors, Drucker argues that Fundación Compromiso is the best hope for building community through institutions such as public schools and the Church. In the middle of the letter he discusses Jorge's, Carolina's husband, chapters from his upcoming novel. Drucker expresses his high regard for Jorge's writing, but explains why he is unwilling to offer specific comments. On the second page of the letter he discusses his own novels, "The Last of All Possible Worlds" and "The Temptation to do Good." On the third page of the letter writes the heading "re Coca Cola Argentina." In this section of the letter he discusses Coca Cola's support of Carolina's program for public schools and his agreement to support her request for a grant from the Atlanta Coca Cola Foundation. He also informs her of his connection and possible influence with Donald Keough who is the former president of Coca Cola and recently rejoined the company as counsel to the new Chief Executive Officer.
