Recognizing the historical importance of business news in journalism, this work 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 the consumer. A comprehensive look at the history of American business news reporting--from its conception to today's online news outlets--topics touched upon include breakthroughs in automobile safety; food and drug regulation; and response to problems of pollution, energy, and global trade that remain critical to debates of the future.

Der Sammelband fragt nach den Konjunktionen von Finanzmarkt und den Krisen der modernen Gesellschaft, und zwar unter dem Aspekt von Öffentlichkeit beziehungsweise unterschiedlicher Finanzmarktpublika. Denn es sind insbesondere Öffentlichkeit und Publikumsstrukturen, in deren Wandel sich das Paradigmatische von Finanzmärkten für allgemeine Mechanismen der Integration, Kohäsion und Imagination moderner Gesellschaften zeigt. Finanzmarktpublika sind Szenerien der Konstitution der (Un-)Moralität der Finanzmärkte, Austragungsorte gesellschaftlicher und finanzökonomischer Krisen und zugleich Projektionsflächen nicht nur ökonomischer, sondern gesellschaftlicher Teilhabe. Solche Momente finanzmarktlicher Paradigmatizität werden auf der Grundlage konzeptioneller Überlegungen und empirischer Befunde zu Verhältnissen zwischen Operationsweisen von Finanzmärkten, der Konstitution von Öffentlichkeiten und der Strukturierung moderner Gesellschaften freigelegt und zur Diskussion gestellt.

In her colorful insider's account, Sue Bridge analyzes the bitter struggle that ensued when a sophisticated entrepreneurial leadership tried to diversify and reposition The Christian Science Monitor beyond the failing newspaper -- into radio, the Internet, multimedia publishing, and the highest ticket item of all -- The Monitor Channel, a CNN-style, 24-hour news and public affairs channel. The entire enterprise came crashing down in a cloud of confusion about media realities and costs in the electronic age, rumors of illegal use of funds (which turned out not to be true), and accusations of a misbegotten sense of mission. Using the Monitor's story as a focus, Sue Bridge raises fundamental questions about how and whether the public's interest can be served in an age of spiraling costs, competition between print and electronic media, changing public tastes, and undeclared media wars.

This text challenges the orthodox view of marketing communication. Using references to communication studies, cultural studies, and critical management studies, the focus of managing marketing communication is shifted from message-making to relationship-building. This textbook provides a contemporary examination of marketing as a social process. The scope of communication theory is broadened and a two-way conception of communication is introduced. The existing model of marketing communication is replaced with a new and exciting concept, that integrates the relational and social emphases of the twenty-first century. "Marketing Communication" investigates the problems of organizing and locating marketing in a business corporation, management responsibility for planning and decision making, and the role of the marketing communication manager in contemporary society.
