2.1633 How is the Ford model of production a distinctly 'modern' organization of work?
The idea of 'Fordism' being the defining feature of the modern economy is a contentious one. While few can deny that the Fordist method of production and its various attributes have greatly affected economic progress in the 20th century and the post-war years in particular just how much genuine importance can be ascribed to it remains in question. Some suggest that it encompasses 'all things' modern about an economy. Others suggest that its role is far less subdued. This paper will probe into these issues in an attempt to answer the question of how, and if, the Ford model of production is a distinctly 'modern' organization of work. 6 pgs. 10 f/c. 3b.
