The Moneymaker - The Remarkable True Story of John Law, Philanderer, Gambler, Murderer and the Father of Modern Finance, Janet Gleeson
64 Janet Gleeson The Moneymaker - The Remarkable True Story of John Law, Philanderer, Gambler, Murderer and the Father of Modern Finance
Bantam Books 227551 Great Britain 2000 0553812475 / 9780553812473 Softcover Very Good Condition Three hundred years ago, a charismatic young gambler and man-about-town with a natural gift for mathematics fled London for the Continent. His name was John Law and he had a good reason to go, having killed a man in a duel. Living off his lucrative winnings at the gaming tables of Europe, Law became increasingly fascinated by the nature of finance and journeyed to the impoverished, famine-stricken France of Louis XIV with an extraordinary idea. At the time when wealth was stored and exchanged as gold and silver coin - and there was rarely enough to fund the extravagance of kings, let alone trade - Law realised that the overriding problem was lack of available money. He reasoned that if this could be lent in the form of paper, properly backed by assets, then it could be lend repeatedly and credit used to multiply the opportunities for the making of money. Such a radical notion meant Law faced opposition from powerful vested interests. His persistence paid off in 1716 when, with royal backing, he established the first French bank to issue paper money. He also created a trading company which made its shareholders rich beyond their wildest dreams: so much so that the new term 'millionaire' was coined to describe them. What follows is the stuff of epic drama: a tale of fortunes won and lost, of paupers made rich and lords losing all. And in telling this enthralling tragi-comic story, Janet Gleeson brings to life two fascinating characters who together would change the way the world worked: the inscrutable John Law, and mercurial money itself. 272 pages.

The Right Mountain: Lessons From Everest On The Real Meaning of Success, Jim Hayhurst, SR
65 Jim Hayhurst, SR The Right Mountain: Lessons From Everest On The Real Meaning of Success
John Wiley & Sons 233287 Toronto 1997 0471642207 / 9780471642206 Softcover Very Good Condition It happened in 1988, and a man named Jim Hayhurst was there to witness it. Two men died trying to climb Mount Everest. They died because they failed to understand themselves and their goals. They attempted a climb that was not for them. They were not on the right mountain. The Right Mountain is Jim's story of that climb. It is a riveting account of how traditional definitions of success can break down and what can be done to improve them. As part of the 1988 Canadian Expedition to Mount Everest, Jim experienced first hand the monumental challenges involved in climbing the world's highest mountain. He takes you on that expedition, across surging rivers, over treacherous ice fields, and up mountains where temperatures dip to 60 below and winds gust to over 160 miles per hour. He describes the life-threatening experiences that affected each member of the team, the critical choices that had to be made, and the lessons that were learned as a result. More than an adventure story, The Right Mountain is a graphic illustration of what it means to be successful. Not just in terms of short-lived victories. But in terms that are right for the individual, that lead to sustained success and real satisfaction. 209 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Appeal, John Grisham
67 John Grisham The Appeal
Century 246240 Australia 2008 1844138232 / 9781844138234 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst 'cancer cluster' in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it. Who are the nine? How will they vote? Can one be replaced before the case is ultimately decided? The chemical company is owned by a Wall Street predator named Carl Trudeau, and Mr. Trudeau is convinced the Court is not friendly enough. With judicial elections looming, he decides to try to purchase himself a seat on the Court. The cost is a few million dollars, a drop in the bucket for a billionaire like Mr. Trudeau. Through an intricate web of conspiracy and deceit, his political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mould him into a potential Supreme Court justice; their Supreme Court justice. "The Appeal" is a powerful, timely, and shocking story of political and legal intrigue, a story that will leave readers unable to think about the electoral process or judicial system in quite the same way ever again. 358 pages.

The Future of Capitalism: How Today's Economic Forces will Shape Tomorrow's World, Lester Thurow
74 Lester Thurow The Future of Capitalism: How Today's Economic Forces will Shape Tomorrow's World
Allen & Unwin 246656 Australia 1996 1864481080 / 9781864481082 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Capitalism stands alone, and apparently triumphant. Socialism is almost a memory. The social welfare state is under siege, if not already broke. But the economic, social and political forces heading into the 21st century are as paradoxical as they are irresistable. Will capitalism be able to adapt? Or will it be yet another unchallenged, and then suddenly obselete, ideology. Consider: * in all of Western Europe, net employment did not grow by a single job from 1973 to 1994 * the Japanese recession has gone on, with no end in sight, since 1989 * in mid-1994, Mexico had done everything by the book - balanced its budget, privatised more than 1000 state companies, chopped government regulations, joined Nafta and agreed to dramatically cut its tariffs and quotas. Six months later, its economy was in ruins. * in the 1980s, all of the earnings growth in the Us fell to the highest paid 20% of the workforce, with an amazing 64% of the growth going to the wealthiest 1%. the pay of the average Fortune 500 Ceo rose from 35 to 157 times that of the average production worker The dilemmas of 20th century capitalism are as much political as economic. Its democratic governments are failing to find the answers to the real worries of their citizens. The 3 or 4 year decision horizon of business and politics cannot provide for the long term social investments of the technological age. In question is the driving force of capitalism - the idea that maximised consumption and choice equates to individual welfare. The interaction of new technologies and ideologies are creating a new global economic system, mapped out in compelling clarity by Lester Thurow. The new game requires new strategies. Those who adapt and learn the new game will become the individuals, businesses, communities and nations of the new century. Lester Thurow, author of the bestseling Head To Head, The Zero-Sum Game and Dangerous Currents, is an eminent commentator on the global economy and a shaping voice of Us economic policy. He is professor of economics and former dean of MIT'S Sloan School of Economics. 385 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
