This book highlights the influence of business on culture and traces the increasingly dominant role that business plays in shaping social and cultural experience. It argues that in the contemporary world, the dividing line between commerce and culture is becoming increasingly blurred and that business practices and values now dominate the material, intellectual and spiritual life of the community. This general thesis is illustrated with material from economics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, history, art, biography, literature, film, theater, television, technology, and computer science--- material drawn together by the common thread of business.
