Fable: Adapt Or Die
An Auschwitz survivor who had been liberated by the US 84th Infantry Division emigrated to the USA and worked as a taxi-driver.
Using a $25,000 grant from the US army, he set up an office machine repair shop which became an importer of typewriters.
He then sold adding machines and calculators before buying a semiconductor company where the chief designer told him calculators were old hat and computers were the new thing. He challenged the designer to prove it by building one.
The designer did that, using the company’s own microprocessor, and the machine sold a million units. Its successor sold several million.
Moral: Only the adaptable survive.
