Summary

"Radical thinkers might have a point" - Financial Times
 The Greatest Crash argues that the financial system which evolved from the early Italian bankers has now reached a roadblock. The weight of debt already created prevents further economic expansion, while paying down the debt shrinks economies. To escape this trap, evolution is needed. But bureaucratic design, delegated government, and group think, all combine to prevent evolution.

    Part 1 of 2 of Portfolio Management. 
    Many people consider investing to be a daunting activity. They are bewildered by the profusion and proliferation of investment alternatives, rattled by the fluctuations in financial prices, overwhelmed by the presence of mighty institutional investors, confused by exotic instruments and complicated investment strategies, confused by the intricacies of the tax system, and exasperated by the financial scams that periodically rock market. 
    Notwithstanding these concerns, investing can be fairly manageable, rewarding, and enjoyable experience, if we adhere to certain principles and guidelines. By this we can expect and hope to maximize our returns by diversifying our investments into suitable portfolios. For this, each and every investor has to be well educated about economy, investment options, market conditions and its consequences. 
    The main objective is to select the suitable investment criteria like if we want better returns, or consider risk factors, or liquidity or safety of principal. By this we can set our portfolio objectives and construct our portfolio according to our needs and manage it with respect to the market conditions and the securities fairing in the market.

  • Codes of Ethics in Tourism - Practice Theory Synthesis - cover

    Codes of Ethics in Tourism -...

    With ethics fast becoming a mainstay in tourism studies and the tourism industry in general, this volume provides a timely and intensive look at the theory and practice of codes of ethics in tourism. While the book includes a broad overview of what has been done to date in tourism studies in the area of code development and implementation, it ranges much more widely to incorporate theoretical work from outside the tourism field. This interdisciplinary approach serves two essential purposes. First, it furnishes the study of tourism codes of ethics with a theoretical foundation, which up to the present has been lacking. Second, it affords tourism scholars the opportunity to investigate codes in tourism from a multiplicity of perspectives, with direct relevance to the industry at many levels.

  • Game of Thrones on Business - Strategy morality and leadership lessons from the world’s most talked about TV show - cover

    Game of Thrones on Business -...

    We have always learned through stories, and in Game of Thrones on Business managers learn from the parallels drawn between HBO’s global phenomenon and today’s business world. The authors also use stories and characters from the series to breathe life into management theory. Readers will discover:
    • What Tywin Lannister has in common with Steve Jobs;
    • Why Ned Stark should have had a scenario-planning meeting;
    • What Daenerys Targaryen can teach us about servant leadership;
    • How to network like Littlefinger;
    • Why behaving like Jon Snow will just antagonise your boss.
    Game of Thrones may look like a story that is as far removed from modern business as is possible, but look a little closer and you’ll notice that the differences are merely superficial: that hostile small council meeting is a boardroom showdown, Daenerys Targaryen is the business ingenue you can’t afford to disregard and the White Walkers are a slowly advancing threat to your company’s survival.
    If you think you can stomach the cut and thrust of business this book will show you the insider tricks for success and the hidden pitfalls to watch out for. But remember, if you want to go all the way it takes full commitment: when you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

    A computer beats the reigning human champion of Go, a game harder than chess. Another is composing classical music. Labs are creating life-forms from synthetic DNA. A doctor designs an artificial trachea, uses a 3D printer to produce it, and implants it and saves a child's life.Astonishing technological advances like these are arriving in increasing numbers. Scholar and entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa uses this book to alert us to dozens of them and raise important questions about what they may mean for us.Breakthroughs such as personalized genomics, self-driving vehicles, drones, and artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. But the same technologies raise the specter of a frightening, alienating future: eugenics, a jobless economy, complete loss of privacy, and ever-worsening economic inequality. As Wadhwa puts it, our choices will determine if our future is Star Trek or Mad Max. Wadhwa offers us three questions to ask about every emerging technology: Does it have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are its risks and rewards? And does it promote autonomy or dependence? Looking at a broad array of advances in this light, he emphasizes that the future is up to us to create—that even if our hands are not on the wheel, we will decide the driverless car's destination.
