Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In this new edition Boatright provides broad coverage of the topic, encompassing financial markets, the financial service industry, and investment decisions made by corporate personnel and individuals. Boatright clearly explains the ethical issues but does not take a position, since it is the individual's obligation to make the ethical choice. A volume for all readers concerned with financial decision making. Extensive notes and index. Highly recommended.” (Choice Reviews, December 2008)
