GE and the Emergence of the Professional Manager

PURNIMA BOSE
in conversation

What insights into capitalism and the possibilities for progressive resistance emerge from subjecting specific corporations to critical scrutiny? Through an analysis of management literature, Purnima Bose examines shifts in General Electric's labor practices from the 1950s to the present in the context of the emergence of the professional manager.

An associate professor and director of Cultural Studies at the Indiana University, Purnima Bose is author of Organizing Empire: Individualism, Collective Agency, and India.

Introduced by Angana Chatterji for
The Social and Cultural Anthropology Program, California Institute of Integral Studies
