Library Journal - Library JournalWhat are the top ten market research companies? What are the most popular movies of all time? These are among the many questions answered in Louis Rukeyser's Business Almanac . Host of the television series Wall Street Week , Rukeyser has compiled a reference guide to ``business in America, what we have created, and how it shapes our lives.'' The Almanac covers the role of government in business, wealthiest U.S. families, the stock market, corporate crime, leading industries, and largest companies. It features essays on the history of business and on current economic events. Tables of business statistics, many from government agencies, are located throughout the work. Valuable because it pulls together and analyzes diverse statistics. Recommended for academic and public libraries. Lucy Heckman, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, N.Y.
