OK, enough formality.  Here is where I let it all hang out—opinions and viewpoints of my own, unrestrained and unfettered by maniacal editors, picky reviewers, and politically correct censors.  A bit like a coffeehouse conversation with a friend.  The idea is to explore, probe, challenge, question, seek novel ways of understanding business behavior—and even have a spot of fun while doing so.  Please join the conversation by sending me  billfred@katz.pitt.edu  your thoughts, objections, corrections, and new ideas about what you find here.  And stay tuned for new postings.


The Business School in a Geo-political Context
William C. Frederick (Circa late 1980s)
These thoughts about the business school’s role were written sometime in the late 1980s as the pace of capitalist globalization became more rapid and the accompanying problems more evident. Though never published prior to this July 2009 posting on my website, the earlier insights are lamentably still relevant for today’s business schools.
