Part 1, Economic-Related Foundations, includes a concise history of the economic contributions of eight eminent economists as well as a discussion of basic economic principles and systems. Part 2, Business-Related Foundations, discusses the American institution of business and its component areas. Differing views of the business world as judged by management, labor, and the consumer are also included. Part 3, Social-Related Foundations, delves into the philosophical, psychological, and political foundations, and Part 4, Education-Related Foundations, discusses the contributions of the various levels of education and major types of organizations to education for business.
