Synopsis

Synopsis

The Executive’s Almanac is an entertaining collection of facts and figures covering all aspects of business—from the assembly line to the bottom line; from the stock market to the supermarket.
 
A sample of what’s in store:
 
     •  The ratio of the salaries of the average worker to the average CEO is 301 to 1.
     •  As of 2004, 8.3 million people in the world have $1 million to invest, spend, or save.
     •  Blue Chip stocks got their name from poker, where blue chips are more valuable than white or red.
     •  Starbucks was named for the first mate in Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick.
     •  The New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol for Mauna Loa is NUT; Men’s Wearhouse is SUIT;
     •  Sotheby’s is BID; and Genentech is DNA.
