<h2>From How The Chinese Thought The World Was Created To China's Large Economy Today!</h2><br /><br /><ul><li>Learn about China</li><li>The Myth On How The World Was Created</li><li>Chinese Dynasties and The Move to Republic</li><li>How China Became Such a Large Economy</li><br /><br /><h2>A Brief Overview of the Introduction</h2><br /><br />China ranks at the top of the list of the largest economies in the world today. Recently, reports by the International Monetary Fund revealed that China overtook America to become the largest economy in the world.<br />Britain was the largest economy in the world until the early 7o’s when America toppled Britain to take up this position. According to the IMF, China is the world’s second largest economy by nominal GDP. And until 2015, China was the fastest growing major economy with an average economic growth rate of 10% per year for 30 years! That’s not all; China is the world’s biggest exporter of goods, and has the largest manufacturing economy worldwide. All that coupled with the fact that China is the second fastest growing consumer market and the world’s largest trading nation makes China a country worth studying about. <br />It hasn’t always been this rosy for China though. The history of China is one of ‘grass to grace’ as there was a time when China used to be impoverished and had a very poor economy.<br />Some people are still of the opinion that China is still a very poor country in spite of its brilliantly performing economy.<br />Could this really be the truth?<br />This book traces the history of China right from the ancient times to where the country is at now. <br /><br /><h2>Become more intelligent on China and buy the book for only 0.99 today!</h2></ul>

<P>Shibusawa Eiichi (1840–1931) was a Japanese banker and industrialist who spearheaded the modernization of Japanese industry and finance during the Meji Restoration. He founded the first modern bank in Japan and his reforms introduced double entry accounting and joint-stock corporations to the Japanese economy. Today, he is known as the “father of Japanese capitalism.”</P> <P><I>Ethical Capitalism</I> is a volume of essays that tackles the thought, work, and legacy of Shibusawa Eiichi and offers international comparisons with the Japanese experience. Eiichi advocated for <I>gapponshugi</I>, a principle that emphasized developing the right business, with the right people, in service to the public good. The contributors build a historical perspective on morality and ethics in the business world that, unlike corporate social responsibility, concentrates on the morality inside firms, industries, and private-public partnerships. <I>Ethical Capitalism</I> is not only a timely work; it is a necessary work, in a rapidly globalizing world where deregulation and lack of oversight risk repeating the financial, environmental, and social catastrophes of the past.</P>

<p><strong>The <em>Wall Street Journal</em>'s award-winning business reporter unveils the bizarre and sinister story of how a math genius named Tom Hayes, a handful of outrageous confederates, and a deeply corrupt banking system ignited one of the greatest financial scandals in history.</strong></p><p>In 2006, an oddball group of bankers, traders and brokers from some of the world’s largest financial institutions made a startling realization: Libor—the London interbank offered rate, which determines the interest rates on trillions in loans worldwide—was set daily by a small group of easily manipulated functionaries, and that they could reap huge profits by nudging it to suit their trading portfolios. Tom Hayes, a brilliant but troubled mathematician, became the lynchpin of a wild alliance that among others included a French trader nicknamed “Gollum”; the broker “Abbo,” who liked to publicly strip naked when drinking; a Kazakh chicken farmer turned something short of financial whiz kid; a broker known as “Village” (short for “Village Idiot”) and fascinated with human-animal sex; an executive called “Clumpy” because of his patchwork hair loss; and a broker uncreatively nicknamed “Big Nose.” Eventually known as the “Spider Network,” Hayes’s circle generated untold riches —until it all unraveled in spectacularly vicious, backstabbing fashion.</p><p><em>The Spider Network </em>is not only a rollicking account of the scam, but a provocative examination of a financial system that was crooked throughout, designed to promote envelope-pushing behavior while shielding higher-ups from the consequences of their subordinates’ rapacious actions. <em></em></p>

<p><br />From the middle of the nineteenth century until the 1888 abolition of slavery in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro was home to the largest urban population of enslaved workers anywhere in the Americas. It was also the site of an incipient working-class consciousness that expressed itself across seemingly distinct social categories. In this volume, Marcelo Badaró Mattos demonstrates that these two historical phenomena cannot be understood in isolation. Drawing on a wide range of historical sources, Badaró Mattos reveals the diverse labor arrangements and associative life of Rio's working class, from which emerged the many strategies that workers both free and unfree pursued in their struggles against oppression.</p>

<div>This book upturns many established ideas regarding the economic and social history of Quebec, the Canadian province that is home to the majority of its French population. It places the case of Quebec into the wider question of convergence in economic history and whether proactive governments delay or halt convergence.  </div><div><br /></div><div>The period from 1945 to 1960, infamously labelled the Great Gloom (Grande Noirceur), was in fact a breaking point where the previous decades of relative decline were overturned – Geloso argues that this era should be considered the Great Convergence (Grand Rattrapage). In opposition, the Quiet Revolution that followed after 1960 did not accelerate these trends. In fact, there are signs of slowing down and relative decline that appear after the 1970s. The author posits that the Quiet Revolution sowed the seeds for a growth slowdown by crowding-out social capital and inciting rent-seeking behaviour on the part of interest groups. </div><div><br /></div>
