You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can’t miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once—and it is dizzying.</p><p>In <i>Thank You for Being Late</i>, version 2.0, with a new afterword, Thomas L. Friedman exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. His thesis: to understand the twenty-first century, you need to understand that the planet’s three largest forces—Moore’s law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)—are accelerating all at once. These accelerations are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. The year 2007 was the major inflection point: the release of the iPhone, together with advances in silicon chips, software, storage, sensors, and networking, created a new technology platform that is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. It is providing vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world—or to destroy it.</p><p>With his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, Friedman shows that we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations—if we slow down, if we dare to be late and use the time to reimagine work, politics, and community. <i>Thank You for Being Late</i> is an essential guide to the present and the future.</p>

<p>An International Bestseller<br /><br /><br /><br />"Accessible, provocative, and highly readable." —Alan Cowell, <em>New York Times</em></p><br /><p>In this crucial expansion and update of his landmark bestseller, renowned economist and Nobel Prize winner Joseph E. Stiglitz addresses globalization’s new discontents in the United States and Europe. Immediately upon publication, <em>Globalization and Its Discontents</em> became a touchstone in the globalization debate by demonstrating how the International Monetary Fund, other major institutions like the World Bank, and global trade agreements have often harmed the developing nations they are supposedly helping. Yet globalization today continues to be mismanaged, and now the harms—exemplified by the rampant inequality to which it has contributed—have come home to roost in the United States and the rest of the developed world as well, reflected in growing political unrest.</p><br /><p>With a new introduction, major new chapters on the new discontents, the rise of Donald Trump, and the new protectionist movement, as well as a new afterword on the course of globalization since the book first appeared, Stiglitz’s powerful and prescient messages remain essential reading.</p>

<p><b><br /> </b></p> <p><b>Killing your current marketing structure may be the only way to save it!</b></p> <p><b><i>Two of the world’s top marketing experts reveal the next level of breakthrough success—transforming your marketing strategy into a standalone profit center.</i></b></p> <p>What if everything we currently know about marketing is what is holding us back? Over the last two decades, we’ve watched the entire world change the way it buys and stays loyal to brands. But, marketing departments are still operating in the same, campaign-centric, product-led operation that they have been following for 75 years. The most innovative companies around the world have achieved remarkable marketing results by fundamentally changing their approach. By creating value for customers through the use of owned media and the savvy use of content, these businesses have dramatically increased customer loyalty and revenue. Some of them have even taken it to the next step and developed a marketing function that actually pays for itself.</p> <p><i>Killing Marketing </i>explores how these companies are ending the marketing as we know it—in favor of this new, exciting model.</p> <p><i>Killing Marketing</i> provides the insight, approaches, and examples you need to understand these disruptive forces in ways that turn your marketing from cost center to revenue creator. This book builds the case for, literally, transforming the purpose of marketing within your organization. Joe Pulizzi and Robert Rose of the Content Marketing Institute show how leading companies are able sell the very content that propels their marketing strategy. You’ll learn how to:</p> <p>* Transform all or part of your marketing operation into a media company</p> <p>* Integrate this new operation into traditional marketing efforts</p> <p>* Develop best practices for attracting and retaining audiences</p> <p>* Build a strategy for competing against traditional media companies</p> <p>* Create a paid/earned media strategy fueled by an owned media strategy</p> <p>Red Bull, Johnson & Johnson, Disney and Arrow Electronics have succeeded in what ten years ago would have been deemed impossible. They continue to market their products as they always have, and, through their content-driven and audience-building initiatives, they drive value outside the day-to-day products they sell—and monetize it directly.</p> <p><i>Killing Marketing</i> rewrites the rules of marketing—enabling you to make the kind of transition that turns average companies into industry legends.</p> <div><br /> </div>

The world is changing in ways most of us find incomprehensible. Terrorism spills out of the Middle East into Europe. Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, China and Japan vie to see who can be most aggressive. Financial breakdown in Asia and Europe guts growth, challenging hard-won political stability.<br />Yet for the Americans, these changes are fantastic. Alone among the world's powers, only the United States is geographically wealthy, demographically robust, and energy secure. That last piece -- American energy security -- is rapidly emerging as the most critical piece of the global picture.<br />The American shale revolution does more than sever the largest of the remaining ties that bind America's fate to the wider world. It re-industrializes the United States, accelerates the global order's breakdown, and triggers a series of wide ranging military conflicts that will shape the next two decades. The common theme? Just as the global economy tips into chaos, just as global energy becomes dangerous, just as the world really needs the Americans to be engaged, the United States will be...absent.<br />In 2014's The Accidental Superpower, geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan made the case that geographic, demographic and energy trends were unravelling the global system. Zeihan takes the story a step further in The Absent Superpower, mapping out the threats and opportunities as the world descends into Disorder.

As Pogo once said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."<br />The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge.<br /><br />Icelanders wanted to stop fishing and become investment bankers. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a piñata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.<br /><br />Michael Lewis's investigation of bubbles beyond our shores is so brilliantly, sadly hilarious that it leads the American reader to a comfortable complacency: oh, those foolish foreigners. But when he turns a merciless eye on California and Washington, DC, we see that the narrative is a trap baited with humor, and we understand the reckoning that awaits the greatest and greediest of debtor nations.

START-UP NATION addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel-- a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources-- produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK?<br /><br />With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine the lessons of the country's adversity-driven culture, which flattens hierarchy and elevates informality-- all backed up by government policies focused on innovation. In a world where economies as diverse as <st1:country-region w:st="on">Ireland</st1:country-region>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Singapore</st1:country-region> and <st1:city w:st="on">Dubai</st1:city> have tried to re-create the "<st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region></st1:place> effect", there are entrepreneurial lessons well worth noting. As <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region> reboots its own economy and can-do spirit, there's never been a better time to look at this remarkable and resilient nation for some impressive, surprising clues.

<div>In the 1980s and 1990s many in the West came to believe in the myth of an East-Asian economic miracle. Japan was going to dominate, then China. Countries were called “tigers” or “mini-dragons,” and were seen as not just development prodigies, but as a unified bloc, culturally and economically similar, and inexorably on the rise.<br /><BR>Joe Studwell has spent two decades as a reporter in the region, and The <I>Financial Times</I> said he “should be named chief myth-buster for Asian business.” In <I>How Asia Works</I>, Studwell distills his extensive research into the economies of nine countries—Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, and China—into an accessible, readable narrative that debunks Western misconceptions, shows what really happened in Asia and why, and for once makes clear why some countries have boomed while others have languished.<br /><BR>Studwell’s in-depth analysis focuses on three main areas: land policy, manufacturing, and finance. Land reform has been essential to the success of Asian economies, giving a kick start to development by utilizing a large workforce and providing capital for growth. With manufacturing, industrial development alone is not sufficient, Studwell argues. Instead, countries need “export discipline,” a government that forces companies to compete on the global scale. And in finance, effective regulation is essential for fostering, and sustaining growth. To explore all of these subjects, Studwell journeys far and wide, drawing on fascinating examples from a Philippine sugar baron’s stifling of reform to the explosive growth at a Korean steel mill.<br /><BR>Thoroughly researched and impressive in scope, <I>How Asia Works</I> is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of these dynamic countries, a region that will shape the future of the world. <br /></div>

Whether you are trading stocks, indices, foreign exchange, bonds or commodities, you could use the Elliott Wave Principle to dramatically improve your results. It is no surprise, then, that professional traders and investors invariably use Elliott Wave analysis as a key decision making tool in their market activity. However, most people who try to learn the techniques by themselves often run into difficulty because the real world market movements appear to be different from the examples found in most standard reference books. <br /><br />This book will give you a detailed “working” knowledge of the Wave Principle. Written in simple language, and with plenty of recent and real life examples, "Five Waves to Financial Freedom" will likely become your favorite reference book which you could use to quickly verify whether your own interpretation of the market fits in with the author's guidance. With its liberal use of cross-references, this book will enhance your understanding of the rules and guidelines that govern the Wave Principle. Furthermore, you could use the hundreds of examples available in the author’s website to support what you learn from this book. The techniques outlined in this book are the very same techniques that Ramki has successfully used for nearly 30 years. <br /><br />About the Author: N.Ramakrishnan ( Ramki) is a Treasury Manager with nearly 30 years of market experience. His views are sought after by traders, hedge-fund managers, investors and corporate treasurers from around the world. Ramki has been using the Elliott Wave Principle almost his entire career, and he shares his unique perspective on the markets.<br /><br />Forbes has recently counted Ramki as one of the three excellent Elliott Wave Technical Analysts out there.<br /><br />Raves from readers: "I have found your book on Elliott Wave Analysis to be just as the reviews described it - easy to read with practical examples of how to use EW…"Micheal C<br /><br />"Thank you for the wonderful book on Elliott Waves.
