This month we’ll introduce a few books from the Economics and Business (E&B) section as part of our introduction to the various subject areas in the reading room of the library. The E&B section consists of some 45 volumes covering a variety of topics in economics and business.
A recent arrival is Kurt Eichenwald’s Conspiracy of Fools, the true account of the scandal which brought down the Enron Corporation and sure to delight readers of business books and thrillers alike.
Several volumes deal with the Japanese business scene. Robert M. March’s Working for a Japanese Company is a useful guide to what non-Japanese can expect from their Japanese employers.
In addition to the above there are a number of volumes dealing with investment and financial planning, including books in the popular Rich Dad’s series of Robert T. Kiyosaki, such as Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, and Rich Dad’s Rich Kid Smart Kid.
