Overview

In recent years there has been a great influx of sources for business and financial news, yet the hope that this financial media boom would lead to the democratization of the financial markets has not been realized. Thomas Schuster's The Markets and the Media explores why the expansion of economic communication has proven to be of only limited benefit, arguing that the financial media boom has had negative repercussions resulting in substantial costs for the individual as well as the system. The Markets and the Media stands alone in its class: It is the first comprehensive analysis focusing on the complex, intricate, and often puzzling relationship between the financial markets and the mass media. Featuring a comprehensive business bibliography, this book is a must-read for both finance experts and media scholars.
