    A history of the iconic department store and a city’s life over a century and a half.Anyone who has waited in a Christmas line for the Walnut Room’s Great Tree can attest that Chicago’s loyalty to Marshall Field’s is fierce. Dayton-Hudson even had to take out advertising around town to apologize for changing the Field's hallowed green bags. And with good reason—the store and those who ran it shaped the city's streets, subsidized its culture, and heralded its progress. The resulting commercial empire dictated wholesale trade terms in Calcutta and sponsored towns in North Carolina, but its essence was always Chicago. So when the Marshall Field name was retired in 2006 after the stores were purchased by Macy’s, protest slogans like “Field’s is Chicago” and “Field’s: as Chicago as it gets” weren't just emotional hype. Many still hope that name will be resurrected like the city it helped support during the Great Fire and the Great Depression. Until then, fans of Marshall Field’s can celebrate its history with this warm look back at the beloved institution.</

The author explains the concept in detail so you can fully grasp the power of this symbiotic relationship and how it influences your health and determines the conditions of your life. When you truly understand the creative power of thought, you will have opened the door to a new way of living, one that allows you to take control of your thoughts and actions in order to make the life you have always wanted. Learn how you can use the laws to attract that which you desire and help solve your most pressing problems.

Ordinary people, with seemingly extraordinary abilities, started with nothing and have built and continue to shape the world around us. Would you like to know how they did it? Here's a hint...they applied the principles found in this book and worked within the natural laws. It's no coincidence that after this book and others like it were published, there was an exponential leap forward in so many areas of human achievement. Mental Chemistry was written by Charles F. Haanel, the author of the incredible life changing course The Master Key System.

    What motivates employees? As a manager, you need to know why people come to work every day, what makes them stay - and what drives them to perform at their best.According to Teresa Amabile and Steven Kramer, the best leaders are able to build a cadre of employees who have satisfying inner work lives: consistently positive emotions; strong motivation; and favorable perceptions of the organization, their work, and their colleagues. To do this, you must create forward momentum in meaningful work - and steer clear of the obstacles that undermine inner work life. Through rigorous analysis of nearly 12,000 diary entries provided by hundreds of employees in several different organizations, Amabile and Kramer explain how you can foster progress and enhance your people's inner work life every day - in the process boosting long-term creative productivity. The book shows how you can remove common barriers to progress, such as meaningless tasks and toxic relationships, and emphasizes how these factors can disrupt employees' inner work lives.  The Progress Principle also explains how you can activate two forces that enable progress: "catalysts" - events that directly facilitate project work, such as clear goals and autonomy; and "nourishers" - interpersonal events that uplift workers, including encouragement and demonstrations of respect and collegiality.  Filled with honest, real-life examples, compelling insights, and practical advice, The Progress Principle equips aspiring and seasoned leaders alike with the guidance they need to maximize people's performance.

    Preview:
     
    Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is a study of inequity, both historically and in the present. The book describes how the concentration of wealth has changed over time. Its central thesis is that return on capital is greater than growth over time, which means that capital and inequality inevitably increase. The book also considers the ways governments might address the increasing concentration of wealth in the future.
     
    Many economists have argued that increasing worker productivity in the modern era will inevitably result in reduced inequality. The historical record suggests that this is untrue. For most of history, there has been a huge gap between the rich and poor with no real middle class.
     
    That changed in developed countries during the twentieth century for a number of reasons. First, two world wars caused massive shocks to the status quo and resulted in severe losses to many holders of capital…
