"In this book Wesley B. Truitt offers in plain English historical fact and analytic rigor on the topic of corporations: their history, their role, their operations, and their future. Insomniacs will find no relief in this well-written and engaging volume." -- Benjamin Zycher, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute for Policy Research "Economic literacy is an essential condition for our democracy to work. Only an educated public can make sense of the myriad of economic issues that characterize our public debate, ranging from the collapse of private pensions to the impact of outsourcing on our job markets. This series constitutes a significant step towards the achievement of this goal. Written by eminent professionals and experienced practitioners, each of its seven volumes renders complex issues easy to assimilate without sacrificing nuance or controversy. Aimed at the general public, the authors succeed in bringing to everyday life the substance of most important economic agents and forces." -- Jos^D'e R. de la Torre, Dean, Alvah H. Chapman Jr. Graduate School Of Business, Florida Interntional University

«Truitt, a practitioner and academic, provides an accessible introduction to the nature of corporations. He begins with an overview of the historical evolution of the corporation as a form of economic organization based on the principles of capitalization and limited liability. Moving from medieval chartered companies through the postmodern corporation, he examines the transformative forces shaping the structure and strategies of contemporary business entities. An instructive example is Wal-Mart, now the largest corporation in the US with gross revenues of $288.1 billion, compared with $193.5 billion for General Motors. Other chapters cover such topics as the benefits accruing to owners and employees of corporations; the legal requirements for creating a corporation; routine operations of a corporation; international comparisons and multinational corporations; corporate governance through boards of directors; and a concluding chapter on the future of the corporation in the global economy….[T]ruitt offers an i»

«Truitt believes the corporation is responsible for making the American economy the largest in the world and for creating the global economy as well. Using examples from major corporations, he traces how the concept of the corporation developed over time from the Middle Ages through the age of imperialism and colonization and on into the postmodern model. He explains the advantages of incorporating and the ways corporations are structured to make best use of these advantages, describes the systems of corporate governance, and analyzes why certain people in certain corporations commit fraud. Along the way he explains historical trends and the ways corporations transformed themselves as well as the corporations to come, and closely examines why some corporations have lasted over 950 years while others seem to fail in 950 nanoseconds." - Reference & Research Book News»
