The Stock MarketBook - 2007
The stock market has come to symbolize business more profoundly than any other entity or institution. This book provides a glimpse into the history, development, regulation, and increasing importance that it plays in business and economic growth--in the U.S. and around the world, including Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, and "emerging markets" that are rapidly integrating into the global economy. From initial public offerings (IPOs) to hedge funds to American Depository Receipts (ADRs) to options and more, the authors go beyond basic stocks and bonds to trace the the development and current applications of a wide variety of financial instruments that are used to raise capital. Featuring examples, graphics, illustrations, glossary, index, and references and on-line resources, this volume offers and accessible and engaging introduction to the world of investment and corporate finance, while illuminating one of the icons of capitalism.
