The Essence of Capitalism - The Origins of Our Future, Humphrey McQueen
8 Humphrey McQueen The Essence of Capitalism - The Origins of Our Future
Sceptre 233892 Australia 2001 0733609406 / 9780733609404 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket "The Essence of Capitalism "is a timely account of globalization, the consumer culture, and the historical roots of our contemporary dilemmas. By tracking the 130-year history of Coca-Cola (and a number of other large American or transnational corporations), this book details all that is best, worst and most powerful about global capitalism.Using Coca-Cola's rise as a case study, here is the tale of how Coca-Cola employed marketing and business practices that enabled it to expand beyond its original market (that which a horse-drawn cart could cover in a day) to -today's massive corporate status. Through the use of the franchise, extreme quality control and powerful marketing, it shows how Coca-Cola--a company with virtually one product that nobody actually needs and that is, in its original sugar-laden form, plainly very bad for people--went from being a feel-good tonic in competition with more than a thousand other similar drinks to being the major market force for soft drinks.The book covers topics such as the creation of the idea of a corporation having the status of a person, how the money market works in the flow of capital, the effect of marketing and advertising on consumer tastes and how free trade really becomes oligopoly. By presenting a frightening set of examples, McQueen even joins the debate over what constitutes human nature when he demonstrates how corporations are creating a second nature by altering our needs, whether through the saturation of food with sweeteners or through genetic manipulation.Humphrey McQueen, an original and provocative thinker, features regularly as a commentator on Australian radio, and as a contributor to various newspapers and magazines. He is the author of more than a dozen books on subjects ranging through history, politics and the visual arts. 386 pages. Inscription to previous owner on inside cover. Quantity Available: 1.

The Great Reckoning: How the World Will Change Before the Year 2000, James Dale Davidson & William Rees-Mogg
10 James Dale Davidson & William Rees-Mogg The Great Reckoning: How the World Will Change Before the Year 2000
Pan Books 243908 Great Britain 1994 0330327925 / 9780330327923 Softcover Good Condition In this book, Davidson and Rees-Mogg offer their predictions: the collapse of the welfare state worldwide; the Japanese stock, bond and real estate markets will continue their uncontrollable downward spiral, and Japanese banks will face enormous losses. As a result, Japan may face a military coup; the Democratic party will not, after their 1992 success, win the White House for another twenty-five years. But even with the world's economy in a dramatic downturn, there are still ways to make money. The revised edition of "The Great Reckoning" provides hundreds of investment tips and forecasts as well as fifteen ways to build a solid financial foundation. 602 pages. Pages well browned.

The Future of Capitalism: How Today's Economic Forces will Shape Tomorrow's World, Lester Thurow
12 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.

Globalization and the New Regionalism, Stefan A. Schirm
14 Stefan A. Schirm Globalization and the New Regionalism
Polity Press 227639 Great Britain 2002 0745629709 / 9780745629704 Softcover Very Good Condition The European Single Market, NAFTA and Mercosur powerfully shape international relations and economic development; they also symbolize a shift in economic policy towards a world market--oriented and liberalizing strategy. Schirm argues that this new regionalism is essentially aresult of the impact of globalization on domestic politics. The increasing transnational mobility of private economic actors alters the costs and benefits of economic policy options for governments as well as the interests of domestic groups. Globalization stimulates economic reforms whose economic efficiency and political acceptability are increased through regional cooperation. Globalization and the New Regionalism is innovative in three aspects: it offers a new theoretical approach to integration theory; it develops a distinct interpretative model for the impact of globalization on states; and it compares systematically the influence of globalization and the preferences for cooperation cross--regionally in Europe and the Americas. Case studies include the industrialized countries France, Germany, Great Britain and the United States, as well as the newly industrializing countries Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. This book is a timely contribution to the debate on the consequences of globalization and the foundations of regionalism, and has far--reaching implications for theories of international relations and political economy. 234 pages.

The Undercover Economist, Tim Harford
16 Tim Harford The Undercover Economist
Little, Brown 246031 Great Britain 2006 0316732931 / 9780316732932 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Who makes most money from the demand for cappuccinos early in the morning at Waterloo Station? Why is it impossible to get a foot on the property ladder? How do the Mafia make money from laundries when street gangs pushing drugs don't? Who really benefits from immigration? How can China, in just 50 years, go from the world's worst famine to one of the greatest economic revolutions of all time, lifting a million people out of poverty a month? Looking at familiar situations in unfamiliar ways, THE UNDERCOVER ECONOMIST is a fresh explanation of the fundamental principles of the modern economy, illuminated by examples from the streets of London to the booming skyscrapers of Shanghai to the sleepy canals of Bruges. Leaving behind textbook jargon and equations, Tim Harford will reveal the games of signals and negotiations, contests of strength and battles of wit that drive not only the economy at large but the everyday choices we make. 278 pages.
