How Jack Welch Gutted the Heartland and Crushed the Soul of Corporate America―and How to Undo His Legacy
David Gelles - 2022-05-31
Goodreads Rating
This book exposes the root cause of what’s wrong with capitalism today, brought about by legendary GE CEO Jack Welch. David Gelles reveals how Welch’s obsession with profit and stock prices at any cost paved the way for a cutthroat era of American capitalism that eviscerated jobs, destabilized the middle class, and led to the greatest socioeconomic inequality since the Great Depression. Through this captivating and revelatory read, Gelles offers urgent advice on how we might right those wrongs, highlighting companies and leaders who have abandoned Welchism and thrive in the business world without destroying livelihoods, gutting communities, and spurning regulation.

The Brussels Effect
How the European Union Rules the World
Anu Bradford - 2020-03-02
Goodreads Rating
"The Brussels Effect" argues that despite being perceived as a declining power on the world stage, the European Union remains an influential superpower that shapes the world in its image through regulations that elevate standards worldwide. The book explores how the EU has acquired such power, why multinational companies use EU standards as global standards, and why the EU's role as the world's regulator is likely to outlive its gradual economic decline, extending its influence long into the future.
