If you use an outside source, be sure to mention what it was and where you found it. For information on accessing the FTCC Library databases, see the Resources in the weekly assignments folders.
1. (From Module 15) Many key industries are dominated by a handful of large firms. This tendency has been increasingly evident in recent years, as many separate firms have merged into larger ones.

2. (From Module 15) Who comes to mind when you think of present-day entrepreneurs? To what extent are they similar to the classic entrepreneurs of the past who propelled industrial innovations? Does today’s organizational environment promote or retard entrepreneurial efforts?
