Die Zuständigkeit des Bundes im Rundfunkwesen

I. Im Laufe der letzten Jahre ist "der Rundfunk" häufiger Gegen­ stand kritischer Auseinandersetzungen gewesen und hat seine große Bedeutung für das gesamte inner most und öffentliche Leben im Zeit­ modify der Vermassung offenbar werden lassen. Die einen sehen in ihm eine der gewaltigsten technischen Erfindungen, die - wie Eisenbahn oder Fernsprecher - das Leben des modernen Menschen in seinen verschiedensten Auswirkungen entscheidend mitzugestalten vermag; andere erblicken in ihm ein wichtiges publizistisches Mittel, durch das die politischen Anschauungen und das politische Urteil der breiten Massen beeinflußt oder gar gelenkt werden können; wieder andere meinen, wenn sie vom "Rundfunk" sprechen, nur dessen Programme, deren kulturschöpferische und -vermittelnde Funktion ihnen geradezu das Wesen des Rundfunks auszumachen scheint; es fehlt auch nicht an solchen, die im Rundfunk ein - ihnen angeblich noch zu Unrecht vorenthaltenes - Mittel für ihre privatwirtschaftlichen Zwecke sehen und die auf den Augenblick warten, in dem eine große Zahl in ihrer Reichweite beschränkter Ultra-Kurzwellensender dem Werbe­ und Reklamewesen neue Chancen eröffnet.

A large majority agreed with the students Peter had previously called on. Only a few thought that the second executive who constantly bothered the former president had been the one selected.

In fact, I wrote one (How To Make It Big as a Consultant, AMACOM, 1985, 1991, 2001). However, this was not always so. In the 1970’s, management consulting was just becoming popular in the business community and there was a great deal of interest in the subject. There was a considerable mystique about what management consultants did and how they operated. Peter had consulted for some of the largest corporations in the world, including General Motors. His project with General Motors, actually a study, was the basis of his book, Concept of the Corporation, which helped to establish him as the foremost thinker in the field of management.

This was his grounding in business. My thought was that he must have identified with the theoretical economics he had discussed with his family’s visitors and done this with a definite purpose in mind. Shortly after completing his apprenticeship, he left for Frankfurt. Clearly, he did not intend to continue the work for which he had apprenticed. The fact that he completed this year-long apprenticeship, yet immediately moved on, speaks volumes about what must have been his principles of self development, of which I will have more to say in the last chapter.
