This book doesn't offer overrated success stories which in most cases cannot be imitated. It contains no check lists or recipes for success and it presents no theoretically-based models. The meta-competencies discussed in this refreshing book are timeless virtues of which effective leaders seem to possess, but which are rarely if ever included in lists of competencies in the vast business leadership literature. They include: Existential intelligence - distinct from the much discussed emotional intelligence, is about the ability to pose questions and reflect on fundamental issues in ways that develop a mature ability to interpret the world and better understand other people. Phronesis - is the ability to exercise sound judgement based on skilful application of moral and political rationality. Solitude - is a voluntary state achieved when an individual has the ability to momentarily withdraw and be free of external pressures and demands in order to concentrate on desired mental-cognitive activities. Trust building - is more often discussed in leadership literature. As a leadership competence it is about the ability to be credible, show trust in and respect for other people and inspire trust. For the curious business practitioner, business student, or business educator wishing to consider aspects of leadership competence that have to some extent been hidden or forgotten, this book introduces the notion of meta-competences and deals in detail with them.

What have the market forces of supply and demand to do with making the tax system more equitable? John Braithwaite argues that the competition policies that attack monopolies to ensure vigorous price competition and more efficient production of goods also drive more efficient production of "bads". Tax avoidance, like any good or service, follows market logic: as the supply increases, so does the demand. Braithwaite makes this argument and explores its implications through a detailed comparative case study of taxation in the United States and Australia. He shows that it is possible to "flip" markets in the vice of tax avoidance to markets in the virtue of tax system integrity. Braithwaite sets out specific regulatory strategies and gives examples of how these might be applied. The result is a blueprint for restoring the equity of Western tax systems and a breakthrough theory of how regulators can support markets in virtue and curtail markets in vice. Markets in Vice, Markets in Virtue is essential reading for anyone involved in policy, governance and regulation. It has profound implications for business, and is of special interest to those working in taxation.
