Forgive Us Our Debts

Forgive Us Our Debts by Andrew L. YarrowIn this immensely timely book, Andrew Yarrow brings the sometimes eye-glazing discussion of national debt down to earth, explaining in accessible terms why federal debt is rising (and will soon rise much faster), what effects it may have on Americans if debt is not brought under control, why our government borrows, and what it will take to pay it all back. The picture Yarrow paints should concern all Americans. Specifically, he brings to light how rising Medicare, Social Security, and other spending on one hand, and insufficient government revenues on the other, make a mockery of fiscal responsibility....

Reality Check: The Guide to Outsmarting, Outmanaging, and Outmarketing Your Competition by Guy KawasakiMore uncommon common sense from the bestselling author of The Art of the Start.

In Silicon Valley slang, a 'bozo explosion' is what causes a lean, mean, fighting machine of a company to slide into mediocrity. As Guy Kawasaki puts it, 'If the two most popular words in your company are partner and strategic, and partner has become a verb, and strategic is used to describe decisions and activities that don't make sense' . . . it's time for a reality check.

For nearly three decades, Kawasaki has earned a stellar reputation as an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and irreverent pundit. His 2004...

Truth or Economics

Truth or Economics by Richard S. MarkovitsIs economic efficiency a sound basis upon which to make public policy or legal decisions? In this sophisticated analysis, Richard S. Markovits considers the way in which scholars and public decision-makers define, predict, and assess the moral and legal relevance of economic efficiency. The author begins by identifying imperfections in the traditional definition of economic efficiency.

Whatever Happened to Thrift?

Whatever Happened to Thrift? by Ronald T. WilcoxIt is no secret that Americans save very little: every economic index confirms as much. But to solve the real mystery, we must ask the questions, 'Why?' 'What are the effects on our economy?' and 'What can be done about it?'.

In this thoroughly researched and thought-provoking ebook, Ronald T. Wilcox clearly describes not only how the 'savings crisis' adversely influences personal lifestyles over the long term but also how it can undermine our national wealth and standard of living. Wilcox cogently explains that savings are essential to fuel our nation's economic growth, whether it's putting...

Gender Aspects of the Trade and Poverty Nexus: A Macro-Micro Approach

Gender Aspects of the Trade and Poverty Nexus: A Macro-Micro Approach by Maurizio BussoloThis volume introduces the gender dimension in the empirical analyses on the links between trade and poverty. Gender disparities, an important component of overall inequality, may limit the gains from trade and the potential benefits to poor people. This view is supported by the robust finding that while growth (as well as the gains from trade) is the major vehicle of lifting people out of poverty, it is more likely to be pro-poor when initial inequality is low. High inequality directly lowers the rate of poverty reduction by hindering growth. Ample evidence shows that, in spite of recent improvements,...

In addition, remittances represent more than 20% of the domestic gross domestic product (GDP) in some Caribbean countries and have played a significant role in lessening both balance of payment deficits and the impact of natural disasters to which the region is particularly...

Money, Markets, and Sovereignty by Benn Steil & Manuel HindsIn this keenly argued ebook, Benn Steil and Manuel Hinds offer the most powerful defense of economic liberalism since F. A. Hayek published The Road to Serfdom more than sixty years ago. The authors present a fascinating intellectual history of monetary nationalism from the ancient world to the present and explore why, in its modern incarnation, it represents the single greatest threat to globalization.
