The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World, Alan Greenspan
4 Alan Greenspan The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World
The Penguin Press 237899 New York 2007 First Edition 1594201315 / 9781594201318 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine In the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, in his fourteenth year as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan took part in a very quiet collective effort to ensure that America didn't experience an economic meltdown, taking the rest of the world with it. There was good reason to fear the worst: the stock market crash of October 1987, his first major crisis as Federal Reserve Chairman, coming just weeks after he assumed control, had come much closer than is even today generally known to freezing the financial system and triggering a genuine financial panic. But the most remarkable thing that happened to the economy after 9/11 was...nothing. What in an earlier day would have meant a crippling shock to the system was absorbed astonishingly quickly. After 9/11 Alan Greenspan knew, if he needed any further reinforcement, that we're living in a new world - the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-directing, and fast-changing than it was even 20 years ago. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. "The Age of Turbulence" is Alan Greenspan's incomparable reckoning with the nature of this new world - how we got here, what we're living through, and what lies over the horizon, for good and for ill-channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure. He begins his account on that September 11th morning, but then leaps back to his childhood, and follows the arc of his remarkable life's journey through to his more than 18-year tenure as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, from 1987 to 2006, during a time of transforming change. Alan Greenspan shares the story of his life first simply with an eye toward doing justice to the extraordinary amount of history he has experienced and shaped. But his other goal is to draw readers along the same learning curve he followed, so they accrue a grasp of his own understanding of the underlying dynamics that drive world events. In the second half of the book, having brought us to the present and armed us with the conceptual tools to follow him forward, Dr. Greenspan embarks on a magnificent tour de horizon of the global economy. He reveals the universals of economic growth, delves into the specific facts on the ground in each of the major countries and regions of the world, and explains what the trend-lines of globalization are from here. The distillation of a life's worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview, "The Age of Turbulence" will stand as Alan Greenspan's personal and intellectual legacy. 531 pages.

How We Got Here: A Slightly Irreverent History of Technology & Markets, Andy Kessler
5 Andy Kessler How We Got Here: A Slightly Irreverent History of Technology & Markets
Collins 235423 New York 2005 0060840978 / 9780060840976 Softcover Very Good Condition Best-selling author Andy Kessler ties up the loose ends from his provocative book, Running Money, with this history of breakthrough technology and the markets that funded them.Expanding on themes first raised in his tour de force, Running Money, Andy Kessler unpacks the entire history of Silicon Valley and Wall Street, from the Industrial Revolution to computers, communications, money, gold and stock markets. These stories cut (by an unscrupulous editor) from the original manuscript were intended as a primer on the ways in which new technologies develop from unprofitable curiosities to essential investments. Indeed, How We Got Here is the book Kessler wishes someone had handed him on his first day as a freshman engineering student at Cornell or on the day he started on Wall Street. This book connects the dots through history to how we got to where we are today. 262 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

HarperCollins 238469 Great Britain 1996 0006386792 / 9780006386797 Softcover Good Condition Shaping and transforming an organization to meet the demands of a shifting market place means continual learning and adapting. This book addresses the fundamental roles of chairmen and directors in directing the organization through a learning process called strategic thought.

This book illustrates the neccesity and the advantages of using strategic thinking and how this differs from strategic planning. 318 pages. Pages browned. Quantity Available: 1.

Hello Laziness - Why Hard Work Doesn't Pay, Corinne Maier
20 Corinne Maier Hello Laziness - Why Hard Work Doesn't Pay
Orion bOOKS 228199 Great Britain 2005 0752871862 / 9780752871868 Hardcover Fine Condition Fine Picture the scene: The boardroom at French electricity giant EdF. The subject: 'Motivation'. One of the senior economists piped up: She came to work, she declared, because she was paid to. The stunned silence lasted a full 15 seconds. The woman was Corinne Maier and she had dared to voice the unspeakable - we go to work not because we love it, not because we love organising childcare, and cramming on the Tube for 45 minutes, but because we have to. This sets the tone for Maier's revolutionary book on getting away with doing as little as possible at work. Full of practical tips as well as insights into the workings of the modern company, HELLO LAZINESS is as inspirational as it is enlightening. Covering subjects ranging from getting promoted, to managing in meetings and dealing with colleagues, HELLO LAZINESS is a witty antidote to the rash of American motivational books on the market. It is a call to the office-workers of the world to rise up and throw their laptops and mission statements in the air. HELLO LAZINESS will make you laugh, then make you wish you'd known all of this years ago. 130 pages. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
