Peter Drucker: 1909 -2005

Peter Drucker passed away last Friday, November 11, 2005. He was 95 years young. I've been a Drucker fan since my college days, when I discovered his books at the library. I have read many of his books and always enjoyed reading his essays and articles published in the Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal and elsewhere. Although I never got a chance to meet the man, one of the pieces he published in the Wall Street Journal back in 1984 changed my life. In the editorial, Peter noted that if you wanted to be successful in the business world, you should always strive to surround yourself with excellence. This simple insight became the foundation of my business career.

I'll miss Peter Drucker's wise counsel. He was one of the best in the business.

May he rest in peace.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
