About Profits and Losses (2nd edition)

Recognizing the historical importance of business news in America's
journalistic past, this book asserts that current social attitudes were
set in place by 20th-century reporting on finance, business trends,
markets, unemployment, governmental economic policy, corporate
malfeasance and — perhaps most important — the consumer. According to this
analysis, breakthroughs in automobile safety, food and drug regulation
and public health were brought about by the scrutiny of the national
press and news coverage of the business response to problems of
pollution, energy and global trade remains critical to debates of the
future.
