In this timely and provocative book, Charles Heckscher provides a deft synthesis of New Age views but one that is tempered with critical sympathy for the Diehards. He tackles difficult and important questions and does not shy from trying to provide answers to them.
But other parts are fads or stem from factors emphasized by the Diehards: cost reduction (via teams); effort control (of more educated workers); union avoidance; and the need to provide incentives to service workers whose productivity and wage levels are stagnant.
Reality and realpolitik lie somewhere between the New Age and the Diehard positions.
