Product Description

In the past two decades, the Financial Times , a London-based daily, has emerged as a worthy competitor to the Wall Street Journal. In this commissioned history, British financial writer Kynaston draws on company records, published memoirs, but mostly the paper itself to write a candid, critical history. He traces the paper back to 1884 when Harry Marks established a small London daily, the Financial News . A competitor, the Financial Times , appeared in London in 1888. The papers proved worthy competitors through strikes, depression, and wars until 1945, when they merged. Since then, the Financial Times has broadened its general news coverge, expanded circulation, and established editions in Frankfurt and New York. Kynaston makes a potentially dull subject engaging. Essential for journalism and of interest to business collections.
