How to Do Your Part to End World Poverty
Peter Singer - 2019-12-01 (publicado por primera vez en 2009)
Calificación de Goodreads
This is the right time to ask yourself: “What should I be doing to help?” For the first time in history, it is now within our reach to eradicate world poverty and the suffering it brings. Yet around the world, a billion people struggle to live each day on less than many of us pay for bottled water. And though the number of deaths attributable to poverty worldwide has fallen dramatically in the past half-century, nearly ten million children still die unnecessarily each year. The people of the developed world face a profound choice: If we are not to turn our backs on a fifth of the world’s population, we must become part of the solution. In The Life You Can Save, philosopher Peter Singer, named one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World” by Time magazine, uses ethical arguments, provocative thought experiments, illuminating examples, and case studies of charitable giving to show that our current response to world poverty is not only insufficient but ethically indefensible. Singer contends that we need to change our views of what is involved in living an ethical life. To help us play our part in bringing about that change, he offers a seven-point plan that mixes personal philanthropy (figuring how much to give and how best to give it), local activism (spreading the word in your community), and political awareness (contacting your representatives to ensure that your nation’s foreign aid is really directed to the world’s poorest people). In The Life You Can Save, Singer makes the irrefutable argument that giving will make a huge difference in the lives of others, without diminishing the quality of our own. This book is an urgent call to action and a hopeful primer on the power of compassion, when mixed with rigorous investigation and careful reasoning, to lift others out of despair.

Por qué Bill Gates es más rico que yo y otras cuestiones.
Charles Wheelan - 2019-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 2002)
Calificación de Goodreads
Naked Economics makes up for all of those Econ 101 lectures you slept through (or avoided) in college, demystifying key concepts, laying bare the truths behind the numbers, and answering those questions you have always been too embarrassed to ask. For all the discussion of Alan Greenspan in the media, does anyone know what the Fed actually does? And what about those blackouts in California? Were they a conspiracy on the part of the power companies? Economics is life. There's no way to understand the important issues without it. Now, with Charles Wheelan's breezy tour, there's no reason to fear this highly relevant subject. With the commonsensical examples and brilliantly acerbic commentary we've come to associate with The Economist, Wheelan brings economics to life. Amazingly, he does so with nary a chart, graph, or mathematical equation in sight—certainly a feat to be witnessed firsthand. Economics is a crucial subject. There's no way to understand the important issues without it. Now, with Charles Wheelan's breezy tour, there's also no reason to fear it.

This book’s claim to fame is that it uses absolutely no graphs or numbers when explaining economics. It’s also moderately funny at times.      fuente

La estrategia para invertir con exito
Burton G. Malkiel - 2019-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1973)
Calificación de Goodreads
Este libro es una visita guiada por el complejo mundo de la bolsa y las finanzas. Muchas personas opinan que el inversor particular tiene muy pocas posibilidades frente a los expertos financieros. Es frecuente oír que ya no existe lugar para los individuos en los mercados institucionalizados modernos. Nada más lejos de la realidad. Desde que se publicó la primera edición en 1973 “Un paseo aleatorio por Wall Street” demuestra que cualquier persona lo puede hacer tan bien como los expertos, y es posible que aún mejor. “En los últimos cincuenta años no se han escrito más que media docena de libros verdaderamente buenos sobre cómo invertir. Éste puede considerarse un clásico.” Forbes “Una útil introducción al mundo de las inversiones con abundantes consejos de sentido común.” Wall Street Journal

Elon Musk
El empresario que anticipa el futuro (HUELLAS)
Ashlee Vance - 2015-05-19
Calificación de Goodreads
Esta es una mirada compleja a un hombre complejo, una moderna combinación de Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes y Steve Jobs. Su nombre es Elon Musk, y es el empresario que está detrás de Tesla Motors, SpaceX y SolarCity, empresas innovadoras en sus respectivos campos —la automovilística, la aeronáutica y la energía— con las que Musk está consiguiendo hacer realidad lo que hasta hace poco no era más que ciencia ficción Nacido en Sudáfrica, Musk tuvo una infancia difícil de niño prodigio con la mirada puesta en Estados Unidos. En cuanto pudo, cruzó medio mundo para estudiar en Pennsylvania. Vendió la primera empresa que creó, Zip2, por 300 millones de dólares, y la segunda PayPal, por 1.500. A partir de ese momento, empezó a soñar a lo grande: coches eléctricos a precios asequibles, cohetes espaciales, colonias en Marte, un tren capaz de circular a 1.200 kilómetros por hora, baterías de litio en las que almacenar energía y poder prescindir de las eléctricas… Esta es la verdadera historia de la tumultuosa ascensión a las cumbres del mundo empresarial de Musk, un hombre que ha revolucionado la industria americana y ha roto todos los límites de la innovación, ganándose inevitablemente unos cuantos enemigos por el camino. Más que un inventor, más que un pensador, más que un genio, Musk es el perfecto ejemplo del emprendedor que persigue cambiar nuestra vida cotidiana hasta extremos que todavía no somos capaces de imaginar.
