The fall of the Bell system : a study in prices and politics by Peter Temin( Book )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces and analyzes the events that resulted in the breakup of AT & T, the largest corporate reorganization in history. As the author demonstrates, AT & T's status eroded over many years. That process of erosion began when the FCC allowed competition into small corners of the telecommunications system, while professing support for the overall status of AT & T. But as the FCC should have foreseen, the structure of regulatory prices provided a generous price umbrella for the new entrants into telecommunications. Each time the FCC allowed more entry, both the entrants' expected profits and the demand for still more entry rose

17 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors take the reader from the world of J.P. Morgan, when a private network of investment banks presided over a tumultuous market of competing entrepreneurial firms, to the world of Lee Iacocca, where the power of even the most celebrated chief executive is more than matched by the government. Morgan commanded; business leaders of the 1980s negotiate. Over the course of the twentieth century, corporations developed new means of innovating and of achieving efficiency and control of their political and market environments. -- Book Jacket

The moral corporation--Merck experiences by P. Roy Vagelos( )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merck and the pharmaceutical industry are headline news today. Controversies over public safety, prices, and the ability of the industry to develop the new drugs and vaccines that society needs have been covered worldwide. Roy Vagelos, who was head of research and then CEO at Merck from the mid-1970s through the early 1990s, addresses these issues here. Success with targeted research started Merck on a path that would lead to a series of block-buster therapies that carried the firm to the top of the global industry in the 1990s and Vagelos into the top position at the company. Trained as a physician and scientist, he had to learn how to run a successful business while holding to the highest principles of ethical behavior. He was not always successful. He and his co-author explain where and why he failed to achieve his goals and carefully analyze where he succeeded

The creative society--and the price Americans paid for it by Louis Galambos( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Creative Society is the first history to look at modern America through the eyes of its emerging ranks of professional experts, including lawyers, scientists, doctors, administrators, business managers, teachers, policy specialists, and urban planners. Covering the period from the 1890s to the early twenty-first century, Louis Galambos examines the history that shaped professionals and, in turn, their role in shaping modern America. He considers the roles of education, anti-Semitism, racism, and elitism in shaping and defining the professional cadre and examines how matters of gender, race, and ethnicity determined whether women, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East were admitted to the professional ranks. He also discusses the role professionals played in urbanizing the United States, keeping the economy efficient and innovative, showing the government how to provide the people a greater measure of security and equity, and guiding the world's leading industrial power in coping with its complex, frequently dangerous foreign relations"--

Networks of innovation : vaccine development at Merck, Sharp & Dohme, and Mulford, 1895-1995 by Louis Galambos( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Networks of Innovation offers an historical perspective on the manner in which private-sector organizations have acquired, sustained, and periodically lost the ability to develop, manufacture, and market new serum antitoxins and vaccines. The primary focus is on the H. K. Mulford Company, on Sharp and Dohme, which acquired Mulford in 1929, and upon Merck et Co Inc., which merged with Sharp and Dohme in 1953. By surveying a century of innovation in biologicals, the authors are able to analyze the conditions that either promoted or prevented creative changes in this important industry. They show how the activities of these three commercial enterprises were related to a series of complex, evolving networks of scientific, governmental, and medical institutions in the United States and abroad. This is the first such history to draw exclusively on sources internal to Merck, one of the world's leading innovators in modern vaccines and pharmaceuticals

The third industrial revolution in global business by Giovanni Dosi( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume probe the impact the digital revolution has had, or sometimes failed to have, on global business. Has digital technology, the authors ask, led to structural changes and greater efficiency and innovation? While most of the essays support the idea that the information age has increased productivity in global business, the evidence of a "revolution" in the ways industries are organized is somewhat more blurred, with both significant discontinuities and features which persist from the "second" industrial revolution. Chapter One Technological Revolutions and the Evolution of Industrial Structures. Assessing the Impact of New Technologies upon the Size, Pattern of Growth and Boundaries of Firms Giovanni Dosi, Alfonso Gambardella, Marco Grazzi, Luigi Orsenigo Introduction There is little doubt that over the last three decades the world economy has witnessed the emergence of a cluster of new technologies - that is a new broad techno-economic paradigm in the sense of Freeman and Perez (1988) - centered on electronic-based information and communication technologies. Such ICT technologies did not only give rise to new industries but, even more importantly, deeply transformed incumbent industries (and for that matter also service activities), their organizational patterns, and their drivers of competitive success"--

Eisenhower : becoming the leader of the free world by Louis Galambos( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this engaging, fast-paced biography, Louis Galambos follows the career of Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower, offering new insight into this singular man who guided America toward consensus at home and a peaceful victory in the Cold War. The long-time editor of the Eisenhower papers, Galambos may know more about this president than anyone alive. In this compelling book, he explores the shifts in Eisenhowers identity and reputation over his lifetime and explains how he developed his distinctive leadership skills. As a career military officer, Eisenhowers progress was uneven. Galambos shows how Ike, with the help of Brigadier General Fox Conner, his mentor and patron, learned how to profit from his mistakes, pivot quickly, and grow as a military and civilian leader. On D-Day, Eisenhower guided the largest amphibian force in history to a successful invasion of France and a decisive victory. After the defeat of Nazi Germany, he turned to politics and was elected president in 1952. While todays fiercely partisan political climate makes it difficult to imagine a president forging consensus in Washington, thats exactly what Eisenhower did. As Americas leader in an era of profound postwar changes at home and abroad, President Eisenhower sought a middle way with compromise and coalition building. He provided his country with firm-handed leadership, bringing prosperity and peace to the American people in the dangerous years of the Cold Waran accomplishment that made him one of the most influential men of the twentieth century. Destined to be the best short biography of the 34th president of the United States, Eisenhower conclusively demonstrates how and why this master of the middle way became the successful leader of the free world

This research is presented in two clusters. The first cluster of studies explores four cross-cutting topics, including surveys of the changes in industry structure, corporate strategies, plant technologies, governmental policies, finance, and corporate governance. The second cluster of studies comprises nine country surveys that examine the experiences of representative nations in chemical production and foreign trade. By combining the similar historical cases of a few nations (such as Sweden, Norway, and Finland), the authors are able to deal with eleven chemical-producing nations, including all of the leaders in this area as well as some of the important followers
