Selected Books - When China Rules the World... The Rise of the Middle Kingdom and the End of the Western World

Feb 2018
The book is based on a well-informed and subtle analysis of Chinese history and culture, and as the title implies, the author is convinced that it is not a matter of whether China will dominate the world over the next few decades, but how. He is careful to avoid over-confidence in his predictions, however, and notes that "China's present behavior can only be regarded as a partial indicator, simply because its power and influence remain limited compared with what they are likely to be in the future". But he is surely right to say that American confidence that "the Chinese are inevitably becoming more like us" is misplaced and is based on a view of globalization that is seriously flawed. Issued in 2009. ...

Selected Books - The Alchemists, Inside The Secret World of Central Bankers

Feb 2018
When the first rumblings of the coming financial crisis were heard in August 2007, three men who were never elected to public office suddenly became the most powerful men in the world. They were the leaders of the world's three most important central banks: Ben Bernanke of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Mervyn King of the Bank of England, and Jean-Claude Trichet of the European Central Bank. Over the next five years, they and their fellow central bankers deployed trillions of dollars, pounds and euros to try and contain the waves of panic that threatened to bring down the global financial system. Issued in 2014. ...

Selected Books - Confessions of An Economic Hitman

Jan 2018
Overview: "Economic Hit Men”, John Perkins writes, “are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder.” John Perkins should know—he was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the U.S.—from Indonesia to Panama—to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development, and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to U. S. corporations. Saddled with huge debts, these countries came under the control of the United States government, World Bank and other U.S.-dominated aid agencies that acted like loan sharks—dictating repayment terms and bullying foreign governments into submission. This New York Times bestseller exposes international intrigue, corruption, and little-known government and corporate activities that have dire consequences for American democracy and the world. It is a compelling story that also offers hope and a vision for realizing the American dream of a just and compassionate world that will bring us greater security. Issued in 2004 ...

Selected Books - Freakonomics

Jan 2018
Overview: Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to sports and child rearing—and whose conclusions turn conventional wisdom on its head. Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their mothers? How much do parents really matter? How did the legalization of abortion affect the rate of violent crime? Freakonomics is a ground-breaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They begin with a mountain of data and a simple, unasked question. Some of these questions concern issues of life-or-death; others have an admittedly freakish quality, thus the new field of study contained in this book: Freakonomics. Issued in: 2004 ...

IMF World Economic Outlook published in October 2014

Oct 2014
Despite setbacks, an uneven global recovery continues. Largely due to weaker-than-expected global activity in the first half of 2014, the growth forecast for the world economy has been revised downward to 3.3 percent for this year, 0.4 percentage point lower than in the April 2014 World Economic Outlook (WEO). The global growth projection for 2015 was lowered to 3.8 percent. To read more: http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/weo/2014/02/pdf/exesum.pdf ...
