Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses British society in terms of two kinds of capitalism - an older and a newer, the difference between them and the tensions between them. It talks more specifically about Britain today, about where we are in this transition, and about the way in which both the attitudes of those dominant in the system and the attitudes of the working class are shaped by our present conditions. The chapter also explains what is an enormous fact for management. At a time when everybody is talking about the effects that automation is going to have on British industry, there is something of a crisis in the actual automating of British industry. Everyone had predicted that in Britain the increase in automation would follow the lines taken in the United States and which are being taken in Germany - that investment in computers would follow the same upward trend.
