Nariman Behravesh

Spin-free Economics by Nariman Behravesh

With technology and globalization advancing at breakneck speed, the world economy becomes more complex by the day. Activists, politicians, and media enablers—conservative and liberal, left and right, informed and just plain wrong—consistently seize this opportunity to present woefully simplistic explanationsand hype the latest myths regarding issues affecting the economy. Their purpose is not to educate but to advocate and, in many cases involving the media, manufacture outrage to drive ratings higher. So, where can you find the truth about today's economy and how it affects you? Turn off the...

Let's Get Real or Let's Not Play: Transforming the Buyer/Seller Relationship

Mahan Khalsa

Let's Get Real or Let's Not Play: Transforming the Buyer/Seller Relationship by Mahan KhalsaThe new way to transform a sales culture with clarity, authenticity, and emotional intelligence.

Too often, the sales process is all about fear.

Customers are afraid that they will be talked into making a mistake; salespeople dread being unable to close the deal and make their quotas. No one is happy.

Mahan Khalsa and Randy Illig offer a better way. Salespeople, they argue, do best when they focus 100 percent on helping clients succeed. When customers are successful, both buyer and seller win. When they aren't, both lose. It's no longer sufficient to get clients to buy - a salesperson must also...

Pension Reform in Southeastern Europe: Linking to Labor and Financial Market Reforms

Pension Reform in Southeastern Europe: Linking to Labor and Financial Market Reforms by Robert HolzmannAround the world, pension reform remains at the center of public debate.

Pension systems in aging societies-in need of reform and further stressed by the pressures of globalization-require parallel reforms of the labor market and effective lifelong learning, not only to promote working longer, but to ensure that people can actually do so. At the same time, the working population should be motivated to contribute to pension schemes and prepare for old age. Diversifying...

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. He then develops and illustrates an appropriate response to Second-Best Theory and investigates the moral and legal relevance of economic-efficiency analyses.

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

Maurizio Bussolo

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,...

So What?: How to Communicate What Really Matters to Your Audience by Mark Magnacca

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

It's a hard reality: the people you're trying to communicate with, sell to, or convince don't really care about you. Nor do they care about what you're offering them, until they understand exactly how it'll benefit them. If you start from that assumption every time you make a presentation, write a memo, or even talk to someone in the elevator, you'll make more money, grow your business, and have more fun. Of course, merely knowing what people care about is...

Inside the Box: Leading With Corporate Values to Drive Sustained Business Success (JB Foreign Imprint Series - Canada. #15)

David S. Cohen

Inside the Box: Leading With Corporate Values to Drive Sustained Business Success (JB Foreign Imprint Series - Canada. #15) by David S. CohenHow to turn company values into competitive advantage

We are inclined, for whatever reason, to treat values like works of art. We view them as nice to hang on the wall, and beautiful to look at, but we don't act as though they truly mean much to us in the real world. In fact, the opposite is true. The best organizations understand their values, articulate them clearly, and hold them higher than any short-term concerns or short-cut methods. This does not put these companies at a competitive disadvantage. It is the source of their competitive advantage.

If there's no clarity at the top about what...

Agile Leadership and the Management of Change: Project Lessons from Winston Churchill and the Battle of Britain

Mark Kozak-Holland

Agile Leadership and the Management of Change: Project Lessons from Winston Churchill and the Battle of Britain by Mark Kozak-HollandAround the turn of the millennium, there was a poll conducted in Britain that asked who people thought was the most influential person in all of Britain's history. The winner: Winston Churchill. What set Churchill above the others was his leadership qualities: his ability to create and share a powerful vision, his ability to motivate the population in the face of tremendous fear, and his ability to get others to rally behind him and quickly turn his visions into reality. By any measure, Winston Churchill was a powerful leader. What many don't know, however, was how Churchill used his leadership...

The Wall Street Journal. Financial Guidebook for New Parents

Stacey L. Bradford

The Wall Street Journal. Financial Guidebook for New Parents by Stacey L. BradfordA practical approach to affording your kids from cradle to college.

Bringing home your bouncing baby boy or girl should be an exciting time of celebration–not cause for worry about how you're going to pay for feeding, clothing, and caring for your new bundle of expenses. The average family will spend between $11,000 and $16,000 during a new baby's first year, and more than $200,000 before a kid's eighteenth birthday. Unfortunately, a second child only doubles your costs, with little economy of scale for each additional baby.

Before you start using these statistics as birth control, take a deep...
