A short book review for you today.
Krupp is a German Company famous for its high quality steel, armaments, appliances and other products. It is a prototypical German company that follows the German model of higher wages, export led growth, and close cooperation with the government.
Krupp: A History Of The Legendary German Firm is an informative and easy- to-read history. German corporations are distinctly different from American ones: they are typically family-owned and prize quality instead of cost saving. A lot of this is made possible by the extreme emphasis on export led growth, and the book is very informative on this point.
