Down to Earth: Politics in the New Climatic Regime
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The present ecological mutation has organized the whole political landscape for the last thirty years. This could explain the deadly cocktail of exploding inequalities, massive deregulation, and conversion of the dream of globalization into a nightmare for most people. What holds these three phenomena together is the conviction, shared by some powerful people, that the ecological threat is real and that the only way for them to survive is to abandon any pretense at sharing a common future with the rest of the world. Hence their flight offshore and their massive investment in climate change denial. The Left has been slow to turn its attention to this new situation. It is still organized along an axis that goes from investment in local values to the hope of globalization and just at the time when, everywhere, people dissatisfied with the ideal of modernity are turning back to the protection of national or even ethnic borders. This is why it is urgent to shift sideways and to define politics as what leads toward the Earth and not toward the global or the national. Belonging to a territory is the phenomenon most in need of rethinking and careful redescription; learning new ways to inhabit the Earth is our biggest challenge. Bringing us down to earth is the task of politics today.

The 3 Simple Rules of Investing: Why Everything...
9,95 € *

What if the most effective investment portfolio was also the easiest to manage and the least expensive? As the authors of this clear, practical, and enlightening audiobook - part financial guide, part expos - prove, there are just three simple rules you need to follow and only a few, very inexpensive investment products that are necessary for an ideal portfolio. The authors deftly bust investing’s myths - what they call investing's Seven Deadly Temptations - and dispense with all that complicated, confusing, and self-serving advice of the Wall Street wolves. By embracing commonsense solutions and rejecting investments that seem enticing but are overpriced, needlessly complex and risky, you'll put not only yourself in a stronger position, but the entire economy as well.

The Checklist Manifesto
12,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The modern world has given us stupendous know-how. Yet avoidable failures continue to plague us in health care, government, the law, the financial industry - in almost every realm of organized activity. And the reason is simple: the volume and complexity of knowledge today has exceeded our ability as individuals to properly deliver it to people - consistently, correctly, safely. We train longer, specialize more, use ever advancing technologies, and still we fail. Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument that we can do better, using the simplest of methods: the lowly checklist. He explains how checklists have made possible some of the most difficult things people do - from flying airplanes to building skyscrapers. He takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a patient who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection, and to the flight deck of a crashingplane. Along the way, he reveals what checklists can do, what they cant, and how they could bring about striking improvements in fields well beyond medicine, from disaster recovery to investment banking, to professions and businesses of all kinds.

Wall Street's Just Not That into You: An Inside...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Do you consider yourself a long-term investor? If so, chances are you have parked your money with an advisor and pay little attention to its performance and even less to the amount of risk in your portfolio. You may be told by Wall Street to buy stocks or funds and hold them or to create a diverse portfolio to protect yourself from risk and downturns in the market. Truth be told, new studies show this approach may not be serving the long-term investor well. In his new audiobook, Roger Davis reveals point-blank that Wall Street's just not that into you. Drawing on an investment career spanning more than two decades, Davis delivers a dynamic and deadly accurate analysis of Wall Street's "one size fits all" approach - and why even wealthy investors should be wary. Davis, who has two decades of experience managing funds, raises valid questions about traditional investment techniques, exposing the inherent dangers of relying on any one technique as a primary risk-management tool. As a listener, you will be taught critical, innovative strategies, like how to stress test your portfolio and "lose your losers". Davis reveals that most investors are less concerned about making sizeable returns on their investments than they are about protecting their wealth; yet many investors have the same unprotected exposure to the stock market that they did in 2008. This book offers investors specific steps they can take to reduce investment risk and the right questions to ask of their current advisors to understand whether they should make changes. Refreshingly candid and highly informative, Wall Street's Just Not That into You offers a bold and thought-provoking alternative to the many books that offer up the same old principles of years gone by.
