    Thriving In the New Economy - An organized way of engaging the thinking of the best business minds

    Lori Ann LaRocco, aided by her vantage point as a CNBC Producer, has assembled an impressive collection of thoughts and suggestions from top business thinkers. Like her programs, the book does not try to present a single business or economic philosophy but instead brings in one place the thinking of such diverse personalities as Jack Bogle and Larry Lindsay. I would particularly commend the final chapter written by Wilbur Ross which will give readers a lot of insight into how some investors will recognize opportunity from our most recent economic downturn.
