Summary

Businesses need to be smart to succeed, but it’s not enough to make yourself smarter as the leader or to fill the company with smart people. Businesses full of smart people (and led by them) make stupid decisions all the time. Instead, in today’s rapidly changing, uncertain world you need to design your business itself to be intelligent, to harness the collective abilities of its people by systematically addressing critical thinking, communication and focus. 
 
The real lesson from Amazon, Google and the like – that enables them to keep winning year after year – is that they do business intelligently. Business is complex, which is why it requires a deep, practical intelligence to survive, let alone thrive. This book shows why businesses that act smartest, and display an organizational capacity for critical thinking, underpinned with clear and effective communication, allowing them to develop razor-sharp focus, are the ones that really stand out and achieve sustained success.

    Paul Nathan, an expert on the gold standard, has written the definitive modern guide to returning to a gold standard that will work for global markets that are far different than those that existed in the 1970s when the U.S. moved off the gold standard. Written for beginning and professional readers, Nathan succinctly and clearly explains the nature of sound money, the causes and cures of inflation and deflation, the importance of fiscal responsibility within a sound monetary system, and the reasons for recessions and depressions. He then offers guidance on how we can lean toward a gold standard (that doesn't involve extremist positions of abolishing the Fed and the like) that will strengthen the dollar, reduce debt, and help stabilize the economy. Booms and busts can never be prevented but depressions and recessions can be avoided with a sustainable, stable monetary policy. Finally, Nathan presents strategies for investing in gold now and in the future. Readers will learn that the international run toward gold is not a fad but a world in monetary transition. Everyone needs to understand what this means for their investments and their spending and saving.

    It's no secret that steering a business has become dramatically more complex and uncertain in our modern era. Constant exploration of new territory by teams is the name of the game. Yet most companies are stuck with yesterday's approach to problem solving.Having reached the highest levels of the Fortune 500, digital disrupter Atif Rafiq has written Decision Sprint to pull the curtain back on the hidden management systems within your organization that impact how people think, collaborate, and make decisions.Talent is vital to any company's advancement, but it's the collaboration and problem solving systems that separate industry leaders from the rest. Systems designed to embrace unknowns are the quickest, most enduring way to foster growth, continuous innovation, and results. Learn how teams begin with upstream work—the phase of a promising idea or initiative where the unknowns predominate—to problem-solve anything, thus unlocking downstream actions from alignment to decision making to execution. With Rafiq's guidance, you'll overtake your competitors by moving upstream, embracing workflows that convert unknowns to clear recommendations, alignment, and action. In addition, you'll receive advice from the CEOs/presidents of H&R Block, Volvo, Peacock, and Orange Theory Fitness, among others—and learn from in-depth case studies.
