Peter Ferdinand Drucker (November 19, 1909–November 11, 2005) was a writer,   
management consultant and university professor. His writing focused on           
management-related literature. Peter Drucker made famous the term knowledge     
worker and is thought to have unknowingly ushered in the knowledge economy,     
which effectively challenges Karl Marx's world-view of the political economy.   
George Orwell credits Peter Drucker as one of the few writers who predicted the 
German-Soviet Pact of 1939.
