good old self serving British management simply accelerated our decline as a nation. Thatcher was needed by the country, did steady the ship and scraped away some of the rotten meat much to the horror of her (many) detractors.
The self serving British management is the result of right wing not left wing. Its still in force today!<snip>
In my observation the Management problem in Britain is that Management is seen as a job per se, rather than a means to make a business run more efficiently.
The only way for a manager to justify their salary, is to make those whom they manage work that much more efficiently so that they then earn more revenue for the company than it costs to employ the manager! (This is a very unpopular opinion when expressed to most 'professional' managers!)
Actually, hopefully to be fair to you, I believe it has been far too easy for foreign companies to asset strip here eg Cadburys or ARM and also too easy to come and go unpenalised eg Cadburys again. Too easy to steal a business or simply remove it.
That seems to be a non sequitur. The take-over of PLCs is something that's planned and arranged at board level, not a management issue.
But in itself I agree, and also agree that there has been a degree of political failing in this, particularly in the case of Cadbury's.
