The Near Future Economy 

When we try to anticipate, it is always a good idea to take a look at where we are coming from. It gives us a direction on which to extrapolate. At the venerable age of 95, Peter F. Drucker does have an impressive background on which he can base his extrapolations.

In “The Next Society: A Survey of the Near Future”, Peter Drucker describes how he thinks the society will evolve as a result of the “knowledge economy”.

I agree with most of his predictions even though I think he was sometimes too conservative. As an example, he believes that corporations will be challenged to the extreme during the coming years. Personally, I believe they will become irrelevant. Nonetheless, that is the kind of article I would have loved to write if I were a legendary business scholar such as Peter Drucker.

Thanks to Harold for mentioning his work after he read “The End of Corporations”.
