Lessons of Stafford Beer

"For Russia Beer's approach is very relevant in order to overcome the first stage of "wild capitalism". If we don't use Beer's ideas current attempts to struggle against bureaucracy and desires to downsize personnel will inevitably lead to increase in staff and more bureaucracy (cf. Parkinson's Laws)."
Leonid Ototsky, "Lessons of Stafford Beer ", trans. from the Russian 'Computerra Weekly', 28 Sep 2004.
