Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What i had in mind was the emergence of professional management that migrates between companies, and the ability of top management to walk out of the company with vast fortunes not based on any investment of their own, the imposition of systems such as 6Sigma and the measurement of white collar work, the internal financialization of even industrial companies, the shift of stock ownership to mutual funds and other investment vehicles, the deep and ongoing involvement in the political process via professional lobbying and in shaping public culture via marketing

These companies don't look like 1850s manchester textile companies.
