Rome, Inc.: The Rise and Fall of the First Multinational Corporationby Stanley Bing
A family business prospers through a series of brutal consolidations and rational growth. Then a long line of demented CEOs bring monumental expansion and foolish diversification-at a high cost in shattered, lives. In the end, a series of reverse takeovers leaves the now-overextended and corrupt parent company at the mercy of less-civilized operations that previously cringed at its grandeur. Enron? WorldCom? Try Rome, whose rise and fall carry a moral for the managers, employees, and students of any global enterprise. Stanley Bing mingles business parable and cautionary tale into an ingenious, often hilarious new telling of the story of the Roman Empire.
