Two excellent, very different guides will appeal to business professionals. Greg LeRoy's THE GREAT AMERICAN JOBS SCAM: CORPORATE TAX DODGING AND THE MYTH OF JOB CREATION (1576753158, $24.95) exposes a scam maintained by the myth of 'job creation' in which big billion-dollar corporations play states and cities against each other to gain lucrative taxpayer subsidies. The myth has revolved around the fact that the payoff for such subsidies lies in job creation and higher wages--but is this true? Greg LeRoy exposes a bait-and-switch scam, naming actual corporate names in a discussion of the rigged corporate development system which promises much but seldom delivers, in exchange for lucrative agreements. State-by-state examples discuss free growth, costs, and vanished benefits of such scams. Truly revealing. Keith Merron's CONSULTING MASTERY: HOW THE BEST MAKE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE (1576753204, $34.95) goes beyond the usual guide to consultant roles in solving company project problems, discussing how the savvy consultant can actually influence and change company direction in the process. CONSULTING MASTERY seeks to explore and explain the consultant's wider role in the business process, surveying how a consultant can make a difference and reframe a decision-making process. An intriguing guide re-defining the consultant's role in a company.
