The Commanding Heights: The Battle Between Government and The Marketplace That is Remaking The Modern World

By: Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw

Price: $15.00

Publisher: New York, Simon & Schuster: 1998

Seller ID: 248460

ISBN: 0684829754

Condition: Near Fine Condition


Taking a worldwide perspective, including that of Britain (where the process began under Margaret Thatcher), Europe, the former USSR, China, Latin America and the USA, this is a study of the redefinition of the relationship between state and marketplace. This is the process known as privatization - a term which inadequately expresses the phenomenon's far-reaching changes. The authors set out to show how a revolution in ideas is transforming the world economy and to explain why it is happening, how it can go wrong, and what it will mean for the global economy at the dawn of the 21st century. 45...

Condition: Near Fine Condition


Now that the old division of the world into the two power blocs of East and West has subsided, the great gap in wealth and health that separates North and South remains the single greatest problem and danger facing the world of the Third Millennium. The only challenge of comparable scope and difficulty is the threat of the environmental deterioration, and the two are intimately connected, indeed are one. David Landes argues that the North-South division is the great drama of our times, and that drama implies tension, passion, conflict and disappointment as well as happy outcomes. While Landes ...

This text argues that money has brought the world to a condition of unprecedented instability. In the book, the author examines money from a psychological perspective - how men and women feel about money, about its acquisition, possession, loss and absence. Ranging across literature, finance, painting, business and philosophy, he shows how money has colonized the world in both its forms, as coin, banknote or electronic book entry, as well as an idea of happiness in the minds of men and women. 320 pages.

The Future of Capitalism: How Today's Economic Forces will Shape Tomorrow's World

Seller ID: 246656

ISBN: 1864481080

Condition: 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 bo...

In this landmark book, Richard Layard shows that there is a paradox at the heart of our lives. Most people want more income. Yet as societies become richer, they do not become happier. This is not just anecdotally true, it is the story told by countless pieces of scientific research. We now have sophisticated ways of measuring how happy people are, and all the evidence shows that on average people have grown no happier in the last fifty years, even as average incomes have more than doubled. In fact, the First World has more depression, more alcoholism and more crime than fifty years ago. This ... View more info

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?
