Summary

How disputes over privacy and security have shaped the relationship between the European Union and the United States and what this means for the future 
We live in an interconnected world, where security problems like terrorism are spilling across borders, and globalized data networks and e-commerce platforms are reshaping the world economy. This means that states’ jurisdictions and rule systems clash. How have they negotiated their differences over freedom and security? Of Privacy and Power investigates how the European Union and United States, the two major regulatory systems in world politics, have regulated privacy and security, and how their agreements and disputes have reshaped the transatlantic relationship. 
The transatlantic struggle over freedom and security has usually been depicted as a clash between a peace-loving European Union and a belligerent United States. Henry Farrell and Abraham Newman demonstrate how this misses the point. The real dispute was between two transnational coalitions—one favoring security, the other liberty—whose struggles have reshaped the politics of surveillance, e-commerce, and privacy rights. Looking at three large security debates in the period since 9/11, involving Passenger Name Record data, the SWIFT financial messaging controversy, and Edward Snowden’s revelations, the authors examine how the powers of border-spanning coalitions have waxed and waned. Globalization has enabled new strategies of action, which security agencies, interior ministries, privacy NGOs, bureaucrats, and other actors exploit as circumstances dictate. 
The first serious study of how the politics of surveillance has been transformed, Of Privacy and Power offers a fresh view of the role of information and power in a world of economic interdependence.

    How to overcome barriers to the long-term investments that are essential for solving the world’s biggest problems 
    There has never been a greater need for long-term investments to tackle the world’s most difficult problems, such as climate change and decaying infrastructure. And it is increasingly unlikely that the public sector will be willing or able to fill this gap. If these critical needs are to be met, the major pools of long-term, patient capital—including pensions, sovereign wealth funds, university endowments, and wealthy individuals and families—will have to play a large role. In this accessible and authoritative account of long-term capital investment, two leading experts on the subject, Harvard Business School professors Victoria Ivashina and Josh Lerner, highlight the significant hurdles facing long-term investors and propose concrete ways to overcome these difficulties. 
    Presenting the best evidence in an engaging way by using memorable stories and examples, Patient Capital describes how large investors increasingly want and need long-run investments that have the potential to deliver greater returns than those in the public markets. Yet success in such investments has been the exception. Performance has suffered from both the limitations of investors and the internal structure of their fund managers, often resulting in the wrong incentives and a lack of long-term planning. 
    Yet the challenges facing long-term investors can be surmounted and the rewards are potentially large, both for investors and society as a whole. Patient Capital shows how to make long-term investment work better for everyone.

    In 1943, Lebanon gained its formal political independence from France; only after two more decades did the country finally establish a national central bank. Inaugurated on April 1, 1964, the Banque du Liban (BDL) was billed by Lebanese authorities as the nation's primary symbol of economic sovereignty and as the last step towards full independence. In the local press, it was described as a means of projecting state power and enhancing national pride. Yet the history of its founding—stretching from its Ottoman origins in mid-nineteenth century up until the mid-twentieth—tells a different, more complex story.
    
     
    Banking on the State reveals how the financial foundations of Lebanon were shaped by the history of the standardization of economic practices and financial regimes within the decolonizing world. The system of central banking that emerged was the product of a complex interaction of war, economic policies, international financial regimes, post-colonial state-building, global currents of technocratic knowledge, and private business interests. It served rather than challenged the interests of an oligarchy of local bankers. As Hicham Safieddine shows, the set of arrangements that governed the central bank thus was dictated by dynamics of political power and financial profit more than market forces, national interest or economic sovereignty.

    Are you 100% aware of your character traits and how they influence your leadership?
     
     
     
    Have you ever run into miscommunication issues with the team you lead?
     
     
     
    On a scale from 1-10, how good would you rate your communication skills?
     
     
     
    …
     
     
     
    If your answer is not 10, you’ve already left money on the table.
     
     
     
    Effective communication is an integral element of professional success.
     
     
     
    No matter if you define success through profit or impact, every leader needs to apply certain skills to properly get their message across.
     
     
     
    Unfortunately, you are not born as someone like Tony Robbins who can motivate hundreds of people to change their lives through the message he spreads.
     
     
     
    First of all, he wasn´t born with this skill either.
     
     
     
    And second of all, no one else is.
     
     
     
    Effective communication is a soup of psychological insights, simple nonverbal and verbal tools to successfully deliver, receive and understand an intended message. 
     
     
     
    If you know how to eat the soup, you´ll be able to erase all kinds of drama from your workplace and only focus on creating profit and positive impact.
     
     
     
    Fortunately, good communication skills are not written in your DNA. They are an easily attainable skill set that can be learned faster than you think…
     
     
     
    ...if you know where and how to start.
     
     
     
    In “Communication in the Workplace”, you´ll discover:
     
     
     
    - How to speak a language that no one will ever misunderstand
     
    - How to increase your likeability as a leader without losing your authority
     
    - How to create a team of warriors who love to fight for your ideas
     
    - How to skyrocket your sales and hack your customer's brain
     
    - How to overcome communication barriers even if you have to deal with the most difficult people
     
    - How to ask the right questions and never fear not getting a response
     
    - The 93% that is responsible for effective communication (hint: not your words)
     
    - How to become a master in public speaking and own the stage like Tony Robbins
     
     
     
    And much more.
     
     
     
    Effective communication is not only a way to deal with conflicts.
     
     
     
    Even if you have a great relationship with all your team members, you most likely still lack in client relationships, profitability or engagement.
     
     
     
    Integrating effective communication tools into your messages will help your business to survive tough times and give a step up in good times.
     
     
     
    Be proactive and prepare yourself before you fall into the communication trap of leadership.
