History of Business

The summaries in this category offer a little something for everyone. If you enjoy exploring the roots of economic theory or the principles of capitalism and socialism, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied. Perhaps you’re interested in learning more about foreign currencies, precious metals and the dynamics of the stock market. Or maybe you’re intrigued by political economic luminaries such as Adam Smith or Karl Marx.

Our history of business summaries are specifically designed to appeal to a large cross-section of subscribers. In addition to presenting a broad overview on such topics as the evolution of small business or the historical development of entrepreneurship, getAbstract tells the compelling stories of corporate titans whose huge footprints dot the business landscape. For example, we’ll show you how Goldman Sachs became an investment banking icon and what enabled technological visionaries such as Google, Microsoft and Apple to rise to positions of dominance. You’ll learn about the founding of IBM and how it changed industry and society.

You’ll learn about hedge funds, prime brokers and how advances in technology affect commerce, trading and banking. You’ll have a better understanding of why some experts believe that America needs to rediscover its passion for innovation and manufacturing. In short, the summaries in this category provide a broad historical perspective of business that will inevitably contribute to your personal growth. And it’s all right at your fingertips.
