The political director, often dependent for his own political success upon corporate decisions and corporations, is also wiser to choose a man with corporate experience.

    No, everything happened in a natural way. Up to a point, these consequences for other institutional orders can be assessed; beyond such points, chances have to be taken. The chief executives have set up formal recruitment and training programs to man the corporate world as virtually a state within a state. Only after it was well under way did most of its members find themselves part of it and become gladdened, although sometimes also worried, by this fact. But it is not only the similarities of social origin, religious affiliation, nativity, and education that are important to the psychological and social affinities of the members of the power elite. He argues that since entrepreneurs have the most knowledge about the circumstances surrounding their businesses, they should have power commensurate with that knowledge.

    However, if government is too active, this also creates noise in the channel. This background is more important perhaps in the military case than in that of the corporate executives, for the training of the career is deeper and more total.

The two cannot now be seen clearly as two distinct worlds.

The Power of First Principles Ironically, perhaps the best way to develop cutting-edge ideas is to start by breaking things down to the fundamentals. The very criteria for selecting men who will rise come to embody this fact. The New Deal did not reverse the political and economic relations of the third era, but it did create within the political arena, as well as in the corporate world itself, competing centers of power that challenged those of the corporate directors.
