Business history as history

Abstract

Even if we operate in a climate of extreme openness, it must be clear that in business history we need a minimum level of fundamentals (or, information) upon which we can base all sorts of arguments. We must also know the management side, the ways a firm works, its functions, the way to understand its performances, with the ratios and the indices that are used by firms themselves. It is important that we have the ability to analyse a balance sheet, as this is clearly an indispensable tool for better understanding what is going on within the firm.
