To clearly and thoroughly understand the capital markets it is essential to have a knowledge of economics (can an idea become profitable?), finance (how can an idea be developed?), and accounting (was an idea successful?). Equally important, one must understand the politics involved within each category. Most of the books listed below deal directly or indirectly with these topics, while some cover other - but related - subjects.

We trust that you will find several interesting and useful, and please contact us if you have any comments or questions.
