The 2009 edition of the Associated Press Stylebook has a number of changes and new entries related to business journalism.
The range of new business terms includes collateralized debt obligations, Libor, recession-proof, reverse auction, securitization and solvency.Â
Changes include allowing CEO on first reference for chief executive.
The company names entry was updated and expanded to include 125 major U.S. companies and 65 non-U.S. companies. The Stylebook Online contains additional information, including each company’s market capitalization, revenue, net income, size and business description, as provided by Capital IQ, a division of Standard and Poor’s.
That information will be updated online regularly, with certain statistics revised quarterly. Online subscribers will get access to this information at no additional charge. It does not appear in the print edition.
