On the Record with George W. Buckley
Esther V. Rudis
George W. Buckley, chairman, president, and CEO of 3M Company, shares his views on the challenges and opportunities faced by U.S. companies in today’s global economy. He addresses the issue of global availability of managerial talent; the importance of cost control and pricing power; the correlation between innovation and regulatory environment; and growth opportunities in India and China. According to Buckley, most people think of government intervention in almost every subject as negative, but sometimes the government has to be the catalyst for initiatives and change that companies might not choose to enact individually.
