Die schonungslose Bestandsaufnahme unserer Wirtschaft: Wir können alles - außer digital! Was kann Google, was Volkswagen und Bosch nicht können? Unsere Maschinenbauer, Autoindustrie, Energieversorger, unser Handel, unsere Banken und Dienstleister, aber auch unsere Politiker – Deutschland hat das 21. Jahrhundert mit einem Fehlstart begonnen. Werden wir digitale Provinz oder gelingt uns die Wende zum "Silicon Germany"? In seinem neuen Buch unterzieht Christoph Keese, Autor des Bestsellers „Silicon Valley“, die deutsche Wirtschaft einem Praxistest in Sachen Digitalisierung. Konkret und anschaulich zeigt er, wo die Schwachstellen sind und wie wir den Rückstand aufholen können.

Das neue Buch von Gabor Steingart zeigt: Die Zukunft findet statt - nur anders als die etablierten Mächte aus Wirtschaft und Politik sie erwarten Konflikte und Komplexität überfordern unsere Institutionen und Politiker. Ein aggressiver Finanzkapitalismus zehrt die Wirtschaft aus, die tragende Mitte unserer Gesellschaft wird immer weiter ausgehöhlt. Warum wir trotzdem nicht verzweifeln müssen und wie wir im Zeitalter der Überforderung gut leben können. Das neue Buch von Gabor Steingart bietet beides: schonungslose Analyse und Hoffnung auf eine Zukunft, die wieder Zuversicht verdient.

Der erste umfassende Report über die Machtverhältnisse im globalen Kapitalismus Sie heißen Larry Fink, Stephen Schwarzman oder Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Saud Al-Thani. Mit ihren Billionen schweren Fonds legen Blackrock, Blackstone oder Qatar Investment mehr Geld an als Deutschland erwirtschaftet. Sie dominieren längst die zentralen Felder der Weltwirtschaft und konzentrieren Geld und Einfluss wie nie zuvor. Doch wer sie wirklich sind und welche Ziele sie verfolgen, wusste bisher niemand. Die 200 mächtigsten Akteure des Weltfinanzwesens, die hier im Porträt vorgestellt werden, versammeln zusammen mehr als 40 Billionen US-Dollar – das sind 60 Prozent des Buttoinlandsprodukts der Welt oder fast das Dreifache der Wirtschaftsleistung der EU. Das Gesamtbild dieses neuen Kapitalismus ist bedrohlich: Denn die nächste große Krise wird vom »grauen« Kapitalmarkt und den »Schattenbanken« ausgehen, die in der Gier nach Renditen ungeregelt und ungezügelt wachsen. Mit über 50 Infografken und Tabellen.

A LIBRARY JOURNAL 2008 BEST BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR! Globalization. The Flat World. Outsourcing. Free Trade. Each of these phrases is a flashpoint in one of the most heated debates of our lifetime: Is globalization a force for good, or is it a policy that is sure to destroy the economic foundation of the United States and Europe while exporting our wealth and prosperity overseas? In The War for Wealth, leading intellectual and agenda-setting journalist Gabor Steingart examines how globalization has affected the state of the world's economy and returns with a bleak outlook for the West: our prosperity and wealth are disappearing faster than ever, and with it our political power and our long-held democratic ideals. But all is not lost; we can still stem the flow of capital and jobs and once again restore the West to its respected position of global leader in economics and politics. In this eye-opening and dramatic account, Steingart lays out the three potential scenarios the world faces - a “shock scenario” in which there is a global economic crash, an “Asia-over-all scenario” where the rising economies of Asia completely overtake the West, or the “American renaissance scenario” in which U.S. politicians unite with each other and with Europe, forming a pragmatic third way to bring the West back from the brink of destruction. Compelling, controversial, and thought-provoking, The War for Wealth alerts readers to the crucial state of the Western economy--and shows how leaders can return the West to its position of power in the global arena.

One of Time Magazine's Ten Best Books of 2014 Selected by NPR, Slate, and Kirkus as one of the Best Books of 2014 Shortlisted for the Pacific Northwest Book Award Three young adults grapple with the usual thirty-something problems--boredom, authenticity, an omnipotent online oligarchy--in David Shafer's darkly comic debut novel. The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee. Leo and Mark were best friends in college, but early adulthood has set them on diverging paths. Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark's platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online. But the Committee is reading--and erasing--Leo's words. On the other side of the world, Leila's discoveries about the Committee's far-reaching ambitions threaten to ruin those who are closest to her. In the spirit of William Gibson and Chuck Palahniuk,Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is both a suspenseful global thriller and an emotionally truthful novel about the struggle to change the world in- and outside your head.

Schafft das Internet wirklich Geld, Banken, Einzelhandel, Zeitungen, Bücher und Verkehrsampeln ab? Was muss Deutschland unternehmen, um den Anschluss nicht zu verpassen?

For the first time an award-winning Harvard professor shares the lessons from his wildly popular course on classical Chinese philosophy, showing you how these ancient ideas can guide you on the path to a good life today. The lessons taught by ancient Chinese philosophers surprisingly still apply, and they challenge our fundamental assumptions about how to lead a fulfilled, happy, and successful life. Self-discovery, it turns out, comes through looking outward, not inward. Power comes from holding back. Good relationships come from small gestures. Spontaneity comes from practice. And excellence comes from what you choose to do, not your “natural” abilities. Counterintuitive. Countercultural. Even revolutionary. These powerful ideas have made Professor Michael Puett's course the third most popular at Harvard University in recent years, with enrollment surging every year since it was first offered in 2006. It's clear students are drawn by a bold promise Professor Puett makes on the first day of class: “These ideas will change your life.” Now he offers his course to the world.

In 1918, the Italian-Americans of New York, the Yupik of Alaska and the Persians of Mashed had almost nothing in common except for a virus--one that triggered the worst pandemic of modern times and had a decisive effect on the history of the twentieth century. The Spanish flu of 1918-1920 was one of the greatest human disasters of all time. It infected a third of the people on Earth--from the poorest immigrants of New York City to the king of Spain, Franz Kafka, Mahatma Gandhi and Woodrow Wilson. But despite a death toll of between 50 and 100 million people, it exists in our memory as an afterthought to World War I. In this gripping narrative history, Laura Spinney traces the overlooked pandemic to reveal how the virus travelled across the globe, exposing mankind's vulnerability and putting our ingenuity to the test. As socially significant as both world wars, the Spanish flu dramatically disrupted--and often permanently altered--global politics, race relations and family structures, while spurring innovation in medicine, religion and the arts. It was partly responsible, Spinney argues, for pushing India to independence, South Africa to apartheid and Switzerland to the brink of civil war. It also created the true "lost generation." Drawing on the latest research in history, virology, epidemiology, psychology and economics, Pale Rider masterfully recounts the little-known catastrophe that forever changed humanity.
