Principles of Macroeconomics (with Xtra!)

·
 
Book Description
In writing this textbook, Mankiw has tried to put himself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. The author's conversational writing style is superb for presenting the politics and science of economic theories to tomorrow's decision-makers. Because Mankiw wrote it for the students, the book stands out among all other principles texts by intriguing students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives. Receiving such a praise as "perhaps the best ever" textbook in economic principles, it's no wonder Mankiw's prize project has quickly become one of the most successful books ever to be published in the college marketplace.

Trading Up (Revised Edition)
Michael Silverstein

Jan 2005
(Hardcover) - Revised Ed.
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In Bobos in Paradise, David Brooks traced the cultural forces behind the rise of what he called the bohemian bourgeois class. Now Silverstein and Fiske take a close look at its buying patterns. Both authors have v-p-level experience at the Boston Consulting Group studying retail practices, and they display deep familiarity with "new luxury" goods favored by a growing segment of the American middle market with more disposable income than ever. They're talking about people who take shopping tips from Oprah and Martha, swear their washing machine makes them happy, and dine at "fast casual" restaurants instead of burger chains. Many chapters focus on companies that produce specific luxury items. Victoria's Secret, for example, was a small, seedy store before it was purchased by a visionary retailer convinced American...

Why People Buy Things They Don't Need
Pamela N. Danziger
0793186021
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Danziger, who owns a marketing research and consulting company, dismisses people who worry that too much personal spending imperils individual financial security and crowds out public spending; she even cites the World Trade Center attacks to argue that overshopping is a patriotic duty. Right-thinking Americans, according to the author, encourage people to buy things they don't need by focusing on the shopping and ownership experience rather than on the good or service itself. This "sell the sizzle, not the steak" advice is not original, but this book elaborates on it by defining five types of consumers using 14 different "justifiers" to make unnecessary purchases; some of these are illustrated by a company that exploits the niche. The bulk of the book consists of statistical summaries of 37 different product...

One Nation, Underprivileged : Why American Poverty Affects Us All
Mark Robert Rank
0195101685
April 1, 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Professor Rank, author of Living on the Edge: The Realities of Welfare in America (1994), meticulously builds the case that, despite America's great wealth, society as a whole has abnegated its responsibility to ease the burdens of the nation's poor even while creating an economic system that structurally ensures that a great portion of its citizens will live in poverty. The author debunks the traditional belief that the poor are largely responsible for their own condition. He equates the economy to a game of musical chairs, with a limited amount of jobs substituting for chairs. Thus in this book an amazing statistic is brought out for the first time: nearly one-half of all people in America spend at least one year of their lives in poverty. Rank argues for a recapturing of our Judeo-Christian ethic and that...


Innovation-The Missing Dimension

Review
Patrick le Qu�ment, Chief Designer, Renault : Lester and Piore tell us that a corporate focus on core competencies will not suffice to make a brand irreplaceable and thus earn a ticket to prolonged life. Indeed great brands don't just fall from the sky, they have to be built through the carefully assembled blocks of innovation. The authors lead us to the conclusion that you have to go beyond just listening to the customer, you have to observe them and anticipate what they themselves never imagined they would want.
Robert W. Galvin, Former CEO, Motorola : Innovation-The Missing Dimension does have a central focus, but it is such a broad-ranging coverage of the important subject of innovation that it actually adds many dimensions to the reader's thinking. A worthwhile experience.

Book Review
Thank God the U.S. government has begun to cut funding of the arts, humanities, and social services ... but what are they going to do with all that surplus cash? Although the popular media has been largely mum about it, most of the welfare payments go to large corporations in the form of tax write-offs, subsidies, and plain old handouts. This frightening and enlightening book by the editor of The Tucson Comic News (a monthly collection of comic strips and panels) traces the flow of money into such worthy projects as subsidizing nuclear power plants (the last one was finished in 1973, but that doesn't stop the U.S. government from spending $7.1 billion a year on this vapor industry), tax breaks for the tobacco industry ($41 million last year), and corporate expense account write-offs ($5.5 billion last year).

Our Brave New World

Paperback

Book Description
History never repeats itself; but it often rhymes. This simple fact explains why so many financial analysts, market strategists and portfolio managers like to study past economic cycles and market reactions before taking investment decisions. For over ten years now, a wide majority of economists have drawn on historical parallels to warn us that the expansion of the past decade in US consumption was unsustainable and likely to end in tears. So far, and despite the strength of the above thought process and the numerous historical parallels, the dreaded meltdown has completely failed to materialize. So what is the next step? When a thought process fails, i.e.: when History fails to rhyme, analysts can typically respond in one of four ways: 1- Shut up and crawl under the carpet. This is usually an expensive...
