More About the Author

Dr. Yasser Nafei currently serves as Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing, Engineering and Customer Operations at LG Electronics. Throughout a 20+ years career, he worked for numerous multinational corporations, including Alcatel, IBM, Motorola, Nortel, and Tellabs in multiple executive capacities in engineering, strategy and mergers and acquisitions. Dr. Nafei holds a M.Sc. in electrical engineering from Ain Shams University in Egypt, a M.Sc. in telecommunications from the University of Quebec, Canada and a Ph.D. in Organization Development from Benedictine University in the United States.

His 2009 book "Corporate Dictatorship" provides a new perspective on the 21st century economic crisis and presents evidence of a quickly growing, ugly decision-making phenomenon. He presents potential governance and diversity reform ideas to reverse the track and restore professionalism at the workplace.

His 2013 new book "Corporate Spring" conveys the obvious; companies and businesses will prosper when they focus on their customers. The book presents a new customer advocacy model that emphasizes the role of culture, skills, processes and tools that businesses ought to adopt to secure their long-term sustainability and profitability by acting in the best interest of their existing and prospective customers.

Format: Perfect Paperback
In 1955, Milovan Djilas published a devastating critique of the allegedly classless society established under communist rule in Eastern Europe. Titled, "The New Class: An Analysis of the Communist System," Djilas recounted how, although communism claimed to have made everyone equal, all it had done was replace the bureaucrats of the old system with the even more powerful bureaucrats of the new system -- the "New Class."

While The New Class was highly praised in the west, especially in the wake of the "Red Scare" of the 1950s, many people missed a secondary theme in the book -- that while the Nomenklatura were definitely worse than what they replaced, the old system was hardly something to write home about. As Pope Pius XI described the situation in §§ 105-106 of his 1931 landmark encyclical, Quadragesimo Anno ("On the Restructuring of the Social Order"),

"In the first place, it is obvious that not only is wealth concentrated in our times but an immense power and despotic economic dictatorship is consolidated in the hands of a few, who often are not owners but only the trustees and managing directors of invested funds which they administer according to their own arbitrary will and pleasure.

"This dictatorship is being most forcibly exercised by those who, since they hold the money and completely control it, control credit also and rule the lending of money. Hence they regulate the flow, so to speak, of the life-blood whereby the entire economic system lives, and have so firmly in their grasp the soul, as it were, of economic life that no one can breathe against their will."

Frankly, virtually the only difference between socialism and capitalism for the propertyless worker or citizen is the name of whoever controls the wage packet.
