Margaret Thatcher said that the best book on business is The Tale of Ginger & Pickles. Ginger is a yellow tom-cat and Pickles is a terrier. Together they operate a small general store that all the animals use. However, Ginger and Pickles extend credit to the customers. Tabitha Twitchit, who owns the competing general store, does not provide credit. In just a few pages, Beatrix Potter captures the essence of business, the nature of competition and consumer behavior. That’s impressive for a kid’s book.
