The Titanic Deck Chair Rearrangement Corporation
and other anomalies of a wasted life
I ran into a couple-three things tonight, pretty much by accident as I was googling around.
A review at a site called strategy+business says...Christopher Locke's "The Case for Business Criticism" argues that although there is substantial criticism focused on art, music, literature, and media, there is a "glaring gap" in our understanding of business in society. Locke believes there should be more commentary in which business is placed in a broader historical and social context.And this bookbytes page says...Why is it that the business world has not developed its own form of rigorous business criticism? It "has become toxic, a dysfunctional complex of neurotic behaviors and primitive defense mechanisms." Locke urges us to establish a new genre of business writing, one "that recognizes the profound connections between commerce and culture..."The actual article is in Business: The Ultimate Resource (first edition; not sure about the 2nd), but sadly the type is too small to enable reading it using Amazon's "Search Inside" feature -- unless your eyes are a good deal better than mine.
