Abstract:

Business is the most deliberate activity in the world and the most mindless. It is the most calculating of the consequences of what it does and the least conscious of its own side effects. This book is full of diabolic stuff about business. Angelic stuff, too, and that will inspire you, give you hope and enlightenment of almost celestial quality; the diabolic stuff will make you gnash a tooth or two and provide enlightenment of almost hellish quality. A person needs both and if, by perusing this dictionary you were to get rich, be promoted or otherwise succeed in business. The infernal author of this work has included many little known, brain boggling business facts, fantasies and fallacies. A Devil's Dictionary, with short, clear explanations of business terms, American society, American culture, American Dream, and American business.
