The Best Business Movies

Last month, the editors of Inc. Magazine celebrated the Oscars by taking a look at the Best Business Movies of all time. That is such a good idea that we did it at PROFIT Magazine about six years ago.

Here is Inc.’s Top 10 list of Best Business Movies.

The Aviator
It’s a Wonderful Life
Citizen Kane
Wall Street
Tucker: The Man and His Dream
Glengarry Glen Ross
What Women Want
Working Girl
The Hudsucker Proxy
The Insider

I think they forgot one. Here is the text of a message I left on their website today. http://www.inc.com/home/

“I think you missed the best entrepreneur movie of all time: Schindler's List.

“It tells the story of a businessman who was able to defy the Nazi empire and do a surprising amount of good, starting out at first almost by accident.

“No other movie has come close to Schindler in terms of portraying business as a basis for independent initiative and power. It makes an eloquent statement about the positive power of capitalism and the need to create non-governmental organizations of size, stability and influence in order to balance the power of the state.”
