On the discussion of the death of the unions, the following Atlantic article at might interest some on this list.

As you may know, Drucker is the management guru who some say invented management "science." In this article he prophesies the demise of the proletariat and discusses what he calls the knowledge worker. You may not buy into his argument, but I think his discussion is provocative and insightful.

I know Doug H. has done some work in undermining the notion that we are entering the Age of Information and that this will bring the kinds of rewards that folks like Drucker espouse, but he has not taken on Drucker head on. Anyone know of any interesting articles dealing with Drucker's thesis?
