<P>The emerging present is a fast-changing context for incumbent organizations, especially in market segments where online behavior is replacing physical proximity, and users engage with digital platforms for the acquisition of products and services.

<h2>BITCOIN</h2><br /><b>Download This Great Book Today! Available To Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet!</b><br /><br />The world has always run on traditional fiat currencies, which have been backed and controlled by governments. The government can inflate or deflate the price of these currencies without any democratic involvement. This also meant a high degree of regulation and government scrutiny that led to manipulation, but then came Bitcoin.<br />Bitcoin is a decentralized virtual currency that is not controlled by anyone, and that doesn’t require a third-party intervention. It was created by a figure known as Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. His identity is still unknown, and he vanished from the online world a few years after introducing the world to the revolutionary technology of Bitcoin.<br /><br />Bitcoin’s value has increased over the years because of its popularity, and many people have made a lot of money from it. No central figure controls Bitcoin, but it’s regulated by a peer-to-peer network that provides it with a functional base without the need of an external figure. Bitcoin is a democratic currency because it can’t be influenced or manipulated by a few wealthy people for their gains and interests.<br /><br />Most people have heard about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, but there is a lot of mystery that surrounds this terminology. Therefore most people are hesitant about investing in this lucrative currency. Bitcoin has almost become a buzzword in the last few years, thanks to its growing popularity. But the important question is, how does Bitcoin function? Is it a sound investment opportunity? How can you buy Bitcoin?<br /><br />If you want the answer to these questions, then this is the book that you need. Bitcoin is changing the world, and it is entirely possible that in the next twenty years, it might become the currency that everyone in the world uses. Some governments, like that of Japan and Switzerland, are openly embracing it while others are strictly against its use. <br /><br />Bitcoin is growing every day, and those who are in the game are already making thousands of dollars from it. So, if you want to understand what the hype is all about it, you have found the right book. <br /><br /><br /><h2>Here Is A Preview Of What’s Included…</h2><br /><ul><li>What is Bitcoin?</li><li>How do Bitcoins work?</li><li>How are Bitcoins created?</li><li>what are the benefits of Bitcoins over regular currencies?</li><li>How is Bitcoin valued?</li><li>The History of Bitcoin</li><li>What is the Blockchain technology behind bitcoin?</li><li>How do Bitcoin transactions take place?</li><li>What is Bitcoin Mining?</li><li>Who Controls Bitcoin?</li><li>How to Buy and Sell Bitcoin?</li><li>What is a Bitcoin Wallet/ How to get a Bitcoin wallet?</li><li>Real world use of Bitcoin</li><li>Should I invest in Bitcoin?</li><li>The Future of Bitcoin and Challenges it faces</li><li>Much,Much More</li></ul><br /><br /><br /><b>Join the Bitcoin Revolution and get your copy today!</b><br />

<P>With interest in topics such as climate change, energy security, and alternative energy sources being at an all-time high, the effects of today's decisions now rest on the shoulders of future generations. There are no easy answers to our energy issues, so costs and benefits must be considered when evaluating all energy alternatives; alongside that, prices must be right and need to reflect the full social costs to society of a given source of energy.</P><I><br /><P>Energy Economics</I> outlines the fundamental issues and possible solutions to the challenges of energy production and use, and presents a framework for energy decisions based upon sound economic analysis. It considers market forces and policy goals, including economic prosperity, environmental protection, and other considerations that affect societal well-being. This book focuses on both energy choices and the impact of these choices on market performance, environmental conditions, and sustainability. The initial section covers the fundamental economic concepts for analyzing energy markets. Following this, a detailed analysis of established energy sources, specifically fossil fuels and nuclear energy, leads into consideration of energy alternatives such as renewable energy and next-generation alternatives. Electricity production and regulatory trends are covered in depth. The final section considers policy: environmental considerations, sustainability, and energy security. The concluding chapter is a comprehensive vision for our energy future.? </P><br /><P>Drawing on current energy headlines, perspectives familiar from the popular press, and views outside economics, this text sharpens students' ability to understand, evaluate, and critique policy using appropriate economic analysis. The text builds a foundation that culminates in a view of a comprehensive energy policy that improves upon the vacillations of past decades.? </P>

The Labors of Sisyphus: Economic Development of Communist China

Almost a half century has passed since the inception of the People's Republic cf China. In that time a charismatic leader has ruled and died, leaving a wake of .Destruction in his quest to transform China. In that time, too, the PRC's most powerful ally and mentor, the Soviet Union, has dismantled and announced that jcmmunism had failed. Today, China fluctuates between tradition and modernity, ideology and pragmatism, between an antiquated collectivist ethic and a new spirit rf individualism. It is a country precariously suspended between past and future. Maria Hsia Chang's The Labors of Sisyphus is a long overdue reassessment of rie meaning and purpose of the Chinese communist revolution. In it, she discusses ihe thought of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, reform and its dilemmas, regionalism in greater China and autonomous areas, and nationalism. She also eyjnines China's immediate present and uncertain future. If it manages to transform economic growth into development, China--filled with natural resources and a large, capable labor force--has the potential to become a world superpower. It could also collapse under the weight of its own problems: regionalism, a flawed state sector, corruption, and a pronounced decline in state capacity. If China succeeds, an imposing new economic power will enter the global stage, one that is often arbitrary and prone to despotism and xenophobia, unless it is tempered by political reform. Prior accounts of communist China have failed to capture China's evolving present In all its complexity and variety, misrepresenting Maoist China In the process. Information shortfall was partly to blame: as recently as August 1994, the Chinese government itself decried falsification of statistics by government officials and cadres. Sinologists in the 1960s and 1970s had to approach analysis of contemporary China with clear recognition of the limitations involved and the questionable validity of the factual sources available. Maria Hsia Chang lends structure, meaning, and purpose to the very complex recent political and historical past of communist China. With greater access to more accurate information, Chang is able to analyze objectively, without political motive or intention, providing readers with a fresh look at the People's Republic. Her pathbreaking work will be of interest to scholars of international economics and politics, sinologists, and historians.

In the early modern period, trade became a truly global phenomenon. The logistics, financial and organizational complexity associated with it increased in order to connect distant geographies and merchants from different backgrounds. How did these merchants prevent their partners from dishonesty in a time where formal institutions and legislation did not traverse these different worlds? This book studies the mechanisms and criteria of cooperation in early modern trading networks. It uses an interdisciplinary approach, through the case study of a Castilian long-distance merchant of the sixteenth century, Simon Ruiz, who traded within the limits of the Portuguese and Spanish overseas empires. Early Modern Trading Networks in Europe discusses the importance of reciprocity mechanisms, trust and reputation in the context of early modern business relations, using network analysis methodology, combining quantitative data with qualitative information. It considers how cooperation and prevention could simultaneously create a business relationship, and describes the mechanisms of control, policing and punishment used to avoid opportunism and deception among a group of business partners. Using bills of exchange and correspondence from Simon Ruiz?s private archive, it charts the evolution of this business network through time, debating which criteria should be included or excluded from business networks, as well as the emergence of standards. This book intends to put forward a new approach to early modern trade which focusses on individuals interacting in self-organized structures, rather than on States or Empires. It shows how indirect reciprocity was much more frequent than direct reciprocity among early modern merchants and how informal norms, like ostracism and signalling, helped to prevent defection and deception in an effective way. This book will be of interest to all early modern historians, especially those with an interest
