Editorial Reviews

?Joyce (Wellesley College and The Center For International Affairs of Harvard) presents a primer on general business activities. The author's goal is to provide an overview of business activities and to that end he discusses a wide variety of topics from business formation to business failures and reorganizations including marketing, foreign operations, financial analysis, and forecasting. Joyce also considers public policy and the economic environment in which business units operate. The coverage varies from a simplistic introductory analysis of a subject to the inclusion of more technical data, such as formulas for present value and some econometric modeling. An excellent bibliography guides interested readers to more detailed discussion of a particular topic. A useful volume for undergraduates and general readers.?-Choice
