"The managerial demiurge means
more than an increased proportion of people who work and live by the rules
of business, government, and labor bureaucracy; it means that, at the top,
society becomes an uneasy interlocking of private and public hierarchies,
and at the bottom, more and more areas become objects of management and
manipulation" (White Collar: The American Middle
Classes, 1951, p. 77).
