Bear Markets and Beyond : A Bestiary of Business Terms

$19.98
  • Unicorns, narwhals, yaks, cows, and civets are all beasts that appear in the global economic ecosystem as warnings, messages, or signals and offer useful analogies to help navigate what can be a confusing, closed-off world. BBC business journalist Dhruti Shah guides the reader through the world of business jargon with this bold, graphic A-Z bestiary. As well as more familiar terms such as piggy bank, loan sharks, and rat race, there are alligator spreads—which occur when an investor will never be able to make a profit on their transactions—or a lobster trap, which is a type of strategy a company will deploy in order to prevent a hostile takeover.
