“Adrian Wooldridge tries to make sense of the enormous and sustained change that has been unleashed recent times. He sees big governments, large public sectors, big churches, unions and political parties as a relic of the past. The big companies that once employed armies of workers now engage disposable workers, contractors and consultants. The new business model is all about being light on assets and people and the name of the game is to be nimble and responsive to change.
Wooldridge outlines what has happened as we move from a period of great stability to one of volatility and he says there’s much more change still to come. The process of globalisation has only just begun and while there are advantages there are also unintended consequences.
