pre-g to 4 G Peter Drucker- When Norman Macrae aged 10 first met Peter Drucker in British Embassy of Stalin's Moscow , Drucker was about 10 years ahead in journalising the world and all the worst big systems in history that had spiralled into world wars and great depressions let alone big brother tyrants like stalin and hitler. Norman served his last days as a teenager in world war 2 navigating airplanes over modrenday myanmar and Bangladesh which slowed down his journalist career but may have grounded his edge in Asian realities. Norman started writing for the Economist in 1947 and by 1956 both men were writing books questioning old world colonial systems- normans' first book on the idiosyncracies of the london capital market and peter druckers classic on the practice of management were published in almost thew same year 1956.
