MEDIA REVIEWS
"An examination of the newest developments in the area of financial services and institutions. The innovations that Gart probes can be broadly classified as changing organizational structures, new distribution systems, advanced technologies, and government deregulation. Obviously these factors will have a differing impact depending upon the nature of the institution. Consequently, Gart studies virtually all of them. Savings and loans, credit unions, investment companies, pension plans, life like insurance and companies, commercial banks, and investment bankers are all included in his analysis. . . . Gart does provide valuable background information for each institution as well as a critical analysis of the most recent developments. A useful bibliography arranged by institutional type suggests further reading. This work is intended to be a handbook for managers facing a dynamic and uncertain environment. Gart tries to provide them with the strategies, institutional detail, and analysis of those factors that affect their business operations on a continual basis. This book should prove useful for practicing managers as well as students of business management and administration. A worthwhile acquisition for both corporate libraries and libraries of larger universities."-Choice
