“To prevent immigration pressure is . . . very much like preventing the law of gravity.”
Claremont, Calif. (PRWEB) May 14, 2010
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University today added a new topic to Drucker Apps, an ongoing conversation about bettering society through effective management and responsible leadership.
This latest addition to Drucker Apps springs off the new law in Arizona that’s aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration. Taking part in this running dialogue will be Tomás Jiménez, author of Replenished Ethnicity: Mexican Americans, Immigration, and Identity; John Schmitt, co-author of Low Wage Work in the Wealthy World; and a young undocumented woman from Ecuador.
As with every installment of Drucker Apps, this online conversation is informed by the words of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management. In this way, Drucker Apps ties the timeless wisdom of one of the great thinkers and writers of the 20th century to the hottest issues of today, all delivered by the latest in 21st-century technology.
“To prevent immigration pressure is. . .very much like preventing the law of gravity,” Drucker wrote in his 1999 book Management Challenges for the 21st Century.
We invite you to join our Drucker Apps conversation about immigration. We open things up with this question: Should we focus on trying to prevent the undocumented from living in the U.S.? Or should we concentrate on making sure that everyone who is here, regardless of status, becomes as productive as possible?

About the Drucker Institute
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to better society by stimulating effective management and responsible leadership. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.
The Institute acts as a hub for a worldwide network of Drucker Societies: volunteer-driven organizations that are using Drucker’s teachings to bring about positive change in their local communities.
In addition, the Institute maintains a digital archive of Drucker’s papers; undertakes research that builds on Drucker’s writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; produces curricular material that distills Drucker’s decades of leading-edge thinking, including a management training system called Drucker Unpacked; applies Drucker’s work to current events (through a regular online column in Bloomberg Businessweek by Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman and through a social media tool called Drucker Apps); and hosts visiting fellows with Drucker-like insights and values.
The Institute is a close affiliate of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, which is training the next generation of leaders and managers to do good while they do well.
