News & Opinion: The 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards, Finance & Economics
The entries were submitted, the books were read, the decisions have been made. And, in the Finance & Economics category, Robert Shiller's Finance and the Good Society from Princeton University Press takes the top spot.
“At its broadest level, finance is the science of goal architecture—of the structuring of the economic arrangements necessary to achieve a set of goals and of the stewardship of assets needed for that achievement. The goals may be those of households, small businesses, corporations,
civic institutions, governments, and of society itself.”
Finance and the Good Society, page 6
