Booknews
Drawing on examples from diverse industries/markets, Asch (management, Open U. Business School, UK) and retired British CEO Wolfe discuss the changing, global nature of business competition; the legislative and regulatory framework (or lack of regulation, as per the case of the US Food and Drug Administration and dietary health claims); and how this new economy challenges suppliers and affects consumer behavior.
