Business News of the Week For High School Business and Marketing Students - September 25, 2017

Successful business leaders and CEOs read voraciously to stay up-to-date with their industries and business trends.

Bill Gates reads the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Economist cover to cover.
