Publisher Comments:

Now in new second edition, this comprehensive dictionary is a wide-ranging guide to all aspects of modern business, with over 5,000 entries covering topics from marketing and advertising to banking and international finance, and everything in between. It also includes terms from law and economics that are relevant to business, and covers aspects of computing and printing that a business person might be expected to know.

With its clear, concise entries and extensive cross-referencing, this is a guide that will give business people the answers they need quickly and effectively.
