This is side A of the first tape from the second day of the annual Drucker Symposium of 1979. Bill Dill is the moderator, and Worth Loomis is the panelist. The topic for the day is managing productivity. In this segment Drucker begins his talk on the subject, which includes reasons why Karl Marx's predictions did not come true, the ways banking has changed over time, and how productivity in medical care has increased. He states that there is no end to the learning curve, so one should never plan on reaching a plateau. In closing he begins a discussion of environmental restrictions on industry, which continues on the other side of the tape.
