I think this sums it up nicely:

“Which begs the question: Does anyone really need 18 books to learn to fail?”

source:

abcnews.go.com/2020/story?id=1982669&page=1.

Also, this in depth analysis:

By the way, I highly encourage anyone interested in learning how to build wealth to read the link immediately above. It is not so much that you will learn about wealth but ill learn how to tune your B.S. meter in order to detect hucksters who prey on those who wish to build financial success.

What types of organizations or corporations would have an strong incentive to see their employees improve their economic and financial knowledge and critical skill sets?

To expand a bit further, a good understanding of economics (macro economics and micro economics), financial markets, financial knowledge, ever-changing events around us and beyond, technological advances, critical thinking, analytical skills etc.
Major banks?


Thanks.
