All the News That's Fit to Sell: How the Market Transforms Information into News

All the News That's Fit to Sell: How the Market Transforms Information into News by James T. Hamilton

That market forces drive the news is not news. Whether a story appears in print, on television, or on the Internet depends on who is interested, its value to advertisers, the costs of assembling the details, and competitors' products. But in All the News That's Fit to Sell, economist James Hamilton shows just how this happens. Furthermore, many complaints about journalism--media bias, soft news, and pundits as celebrities--arise from the impact of this economic logic on news judgments.

This is the first book to develop an economic theory of news, analyze evidence across a wide range of media...

Bringing Value to Healthcare: Practical Steps for Getting to a Market-Based Model

Bringing Value to Healthcare: Practical Steps for Getting to a Market-Based Model by Rita E. Numerof & Michael Abrams

The healthcare sector is on the cusp of sweeping disruption. The hallmarks of the old system-pricing that's disconnected from outcomes and incentives for treating sickness rather than maintaining health-are no longer sustainable. And yet, after decades of financial success, it's difficult for most established industry players to grapple with meaningful changes to their business models.

In their latest book, Bringing Value to Healthcare: Practical Steps for Getting to a Market-Based Model, Rita Numerof and Michael Abrams lay out the roadmap to a healthcare system that is accountable for delivering...

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises by John Graves

Today's wind turbines

  • Kill millions of birds worldwide: raptors are threatened with extinction

  • Require significant amounts of CO2 to manufacture

  • Deliver electricity intermittently, at best

  • Require enormous back up coal and gas fired power plants creating yet more CO2

  • Can be unhealthy or harmful to local residents

  • Are deadly - to core component manufacturers and maintenance personnel

  • Have enormous costs - paid for by the taxpayer


There are many alternative wind turbine choices that do no harm to birds or people. They are far more cost effective, as well.

Only the wealthiest investors take benefit...

Become an Event Planner: Secrets for Getting Hired from Employers, Recruiters, and Event Professionals by Matthew James

Wondering why you didn??t get a reply to that resume you sent out?

In this industry, getting hired doesn??t involve blindly sending out resumes to get experience; it's all about networking, contacts, and relationships.

Reflections on Hoshin Planning: Guidance for Leaders and Practitioners

Reflections on Hoshin Planning: Guidance for Leaders and Practitioners by Lisa Boisvert

The conditions in which leaders apply Hoshin Planning today have changed substantially since the method was established in the 1950's. There is better and more broadly distributed understanding of statistical process improvement principles and practices in today's organizations. Executives seem to rotate in and out of organizations with more frequency. Organizational structures are often more fluid and open. Markets change much faster, employees have greater expectations for stimulation and growth from their work, and technology is central to everything we do. To correctly apply Hoshin Planning,...

Sustainable Urban Transport Financing from the Sidewalk to the Subway: Capital, Operations, and Maintenance Financing

Sustainable Urban Transport Financing from the Sidewalk to the Subway: Capital, Operations, and Maintenance Financing by Arturo Ardila-Gomez & Adriana Orteg?n-S?nchezUrban transport systems are essential for economic development and improving citizens' quality of life. To establish high-quality and affordable transport systems, cities must ensure their financial sustainability to fund new investments in infrastructure while also funding maintenance and operation of existing facilities and services. However, many cities in developing countries are stuck in an "underfunding trap" for urban transport, in which large up-front investments are needed for new transport infrastructure that will improve the still small-scale, and perhaps, poor-quality systems, but...

Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply

Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply by Vandana Shiva

For the farmer, the seed is not merely the source of future plants and food; it is a vehicle through which culture and history can be preserved and spread to future generations. For centuries, farmers have evolved crops and produced an incredible diversity of plants that provide life-sustaining nutrition. In India alone, the ingenuity of farmers has produced over 200,000 varieties of rice, many of which now line store shelves around the world. This productive tradition, however, is under attack as globalized, corporate regimes increasingly exploit intellectual property laws to annex these sustaining...

Agricultural Finance for Smallholder Farmers: Rethinking Traditional Microfinance Risk and Cost Management Approaches

Agricultural Finance for Smallholder Farmers: Rethinking Traditional Microfinance Risk and Cost Management Approaches by Daniela RoettgerEven though traditional microfinance has successfully paved the way for offering financial services to low-income populations without traditional collateral, many microfinance institutions (MFIs) are still reluctant to move into rural areas and agricultural finance, due to the perceived high risks and costs.

Daniela Röttger's research demonstrates how MFIs can mitigate risks and costs of lending to smallholder farmers by using a combination of proven traditional microfinance mechanisms while adapting specific loan features and lending mechanisms to the particularities of smallholder agriculture....
