The Butterfly Defect - How Globalization Creates Systemic Risks and What to Do about It

Summary

The Butterfly Defect addresses the widening gap between the new systemic risks generated by globalization and their effective management. It shows how the dynamics of turbo-charged globalization has the potential and power to destabilize our societies. Drawing on the latest insights from a wide variety of disciplines, Ian Goldin and Mike Mariathasan provide practical guidance for how governments, businesses, and individuals can better manage globalization and risk. 
Goldin and Mariathasan demonstrate that systemic risk issues are now endemic everywhere—in supply chains, pandemics, infrastructure, ecology and climate change, economics, and politics. Unless we address these concerns, they will lead to greater protectionism, xenophobia, nationalism, and, inevitably, deglobalization, rising inequality, conflict, and slower growth. 
The Butterfly Defect shows that mitigating uncertainty and risk in an interconnected world is an essential task for our future.

    The Principles of Islamic Banking

    This book is about the principles of Islamic banking. It explains the prohibition of Riba, and how the prohibition of usury was common to all monotheist religions. The use of Islamic laws in banking can bring together investors and managers; and also to explain mudarabah which is an arrangement where an investor entrusts his capital or merchandise to an agent.
    
    The book explains the belief of economic progress; that development does not imply Westernization. The encouragement of private sector activity is not, however, accompanied by any deliberate policy of fostering competition. The authority in an Islamic state is an interest that extends not only to criminal law, but also to the commercial law which affects both local and foreign companies. Although the law is usually applied consistently within individual countries, there is less consistency among Islamic states. The Koran and the sunnah, of course, provide the basis of the law in all Islamic states, but interpretation varies considerably.
    
    It finally explains the greatest challenge to the world of Islamic commerce in the 20thcentury is, to transform the classical mudarabah into an equally smooth functioning and efficient modern Islamic bank with the potential of almost unlimited growth.

    Monopoly is one of the topics under market structure in microeconomic theory. Comparatively, based on conventional economics, monopoly is the third best solution in economics because under its operational theories it can create Dead Weight Loss (DWL) to the society in term of increasing price and reduce quantity of product in order to increase monopoly profit and reduce the consumer surplus. However in my book of Industrial Economics: Monopoly in Islamic Perspective shown that monopoly power under control of Islamic man it will create more social benefit rather DWL. For example ZAM-ZAM water in Mecca Saudi Arabia is a natural monopoly the only one in the world, but King of Saudi Arabia he is an Islamic Man in this regard he can freely supply ZAM-ZAM water to the people all over the world. Nonetheless, if he is an economic man (Characters of selfish and opportunist and main motive of profit maximization) he can put the price of the only natural monopoly to the people based on his own greediness and monopoly power. To see the Islamic Ethic, Morality and Altruism as well as characters of Islamic Man, under monopoly power, although he/she is a monopolist it still could give benefit to society at large. In this regard, please refer to the above book for your additional knowledge in the field of discipline.

    The U.S. antidumping law enjoys broad political support in part because so few people understand how the law actually works. Its rhetoric of “fairness” and “level playing fields” sounds appealing, and its convoluted technical complexities prevent all but a few insiders and experts from understanding the reality that underlies that rhetoric. CONNUM? CEP? FUPDOL? TOTPUDD? DIFMER? NPRICOP? POI? POR? LOT? Confused? You’re not alone. Even members of Congress, whose opinions shape the course of U.S. trade policy, are baffled by those devilish details. 
    Antidumping Exposed book seeks to penetrate the fog of complexity that shields the antidumping law from the scrutiny it deserves. It offers a detailed, step-by-step guide to how dumping is defined and measured under current rules. It identifies the many methodological quirks and biases that allow normal, healthy competition to be stigmatized as “unfair” and punished with often cripplingly high antidumping duties. The inescapable conclusion is that the antidumping law, as it currently stands, has nothing to do with maintaining a “level playing field.” Instead, antidumping’s primary function is to provide an elaborate excuse for old-fashioned protectionism. The authors offer 20 specific proposals for reform of the World Trade Organization’s Antidumping Agreement. Their analysis and ideas should be of great interest to businesses, trade lawyers, and trade negotiators around the world.

    This profound and accessible book details how science is studying nature’s best ideas to solve our toughest 21st-century problems. 
    If chaos theory transformed our view of the universe, biomimicry is transforming our life on Earth. Biomimicry is innovation inspired by nature – taking advantage of evolution’s 3.8 billion years of R&D since the first bacteria. Biomimics study nature’s best ideas: photosynthesis, brain power, and shells – and adapt them for human use. They are revolutionising how we invent, compute, heal ourselves, harness energy, repair the environment, and feed the world.  
    Science writer and lecturer Janine Benyus names and explains this phenomenon. She takes us into the lab and out in the field with cutting-edge researchers as they stir vats of proteins to unleash their computing power; analyse how electrons zipping around a leaf cell convert sunlight into fuel in trillionths of a second; discover miracle drugs by watching what chimps eat when they’re sick; study the hardy prairie as a model for low-maintenance agriculture; and more.
