Larry Ribstein on Movies
Our greatly lamented colleague Lary Ribstein was a movie buff. Some time ago he wrote an encyclopedic article on business in the movies, “Wall Street and Vine: Hollywood’s View of
Business.” At the time of his death, he and I were in discussions about publishing this article in the journal I edit, Managerial and Decison Economics. After his tragic death, I contacted his widow, Ann, and received permission to publish the article. It is now published in the June issue of MDE. (If your library does not subscribe to MDE, the article is still available on SSRN.) Anyone with any interest in the movies and their perception of business must read this article. Given the volume of Larry’s scholarship, it is amazing that he had time to see as many movies as he discusses in this article.
