About the Book

The corporate scandals that have been ravaging American Corporate Economy during 2002 have been widely discussed in newspapers and broadcasts. Even if it's a very serious problem, people believe that little has been done in order to correct the underlying issues, which seem to be far from clear.

The Ten Capitalistic Sins of American Corporate Economy discusses in short chapters the main issues related to this ominous problem. In each case the main points are identified and discussed in a very simple language, and several original proposals are outlined for discussion. People unfamiliar with the American business world will find surprising revelations about several wrong ideas prevailing in big corporations, ideas that have much to do with their poor performance. On the other hand, people familiar with that world will find in the book an original line of though to deal with certain complex issues in a common sense language, avoiding the usual and confusing technical jargon.
