Fixing the Climate book cover
Fixing the Climate
Strategies for an Uncertain World
Charles F. Sabel, David G. Victor - 2022-08-02
Рейтинг Goodreads
This thought-provoking book argues that solving the global climate crisis requires a different approach than what we have seen from top-down global treaties. Fixing the Climate advocates for local partnerships and experimentation with new technologies to quickly learn the best solutions, which can then be spread globally. The authors explain that some of the most iconic environmental policy successes were the result of this experimentalist approach. They argue that local experimentation can help societies deploy the technologies and policies necessary to tackle this daunting global problem, and finally lead to self-sustaining reductions in emissions.

The Birth of U.S. Global Supremacy
Stephen Wertheim - 2020-10-27
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book explores how and why the United States pivoted to become the world's leading superpower, leading the postwar world. The author traces this transformation to the crucible of World War II, detailing the events that led key decision-makers to believe the US ought to achieve global primacy. Weaving together a sophisticated and impassioned narrative, the author questions the wisdom of US supremacy and explores the intellectual path that brought us to today's global entanglements and endless wars.

A wonderful book about how ideas — in particular the way we frame apparent alternatives such as international “isolationism” vs “engagement” — shape our perception of interests. ⁦@stephenwertheim⁩      источник

Ghost Work book cover
Ghost Work
How to Stop Silicon Valley from Building a New Global Underclass
Mary L. Gray - 2019-05-07
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Ghost Work" by Mary L. Gray and Siddharth Suri is a revelatory expose on the invisible human workforce that powers the web. These "ghost workers" are responsible for making the internet appear smart by performing tasks like flagging X-rated content, proofreading, and designing engine parts. An estimated 8 percent of Americans have worked in this "ghost economy," and the number is growing. However, these workers are often paid less than legal minimum wages, have no benefits, and can be fired at any time. Gray and Suri explore how to ensure that this new kind of work creates opportunity rather than misery for those who do it.

The Future of Capitalism
Facing the New Anxieties

This thought-provoking book by renowned economist Paul Collier diagnoses the failures of capitalism and presents a pragmatic, realistic vision for how we can repair it.

Collier offers original and ethical solutions to heal these rifts, drawing on his personal experiences and insights from other social scientists. He shows us how to save capitalism and move beyond the intellectual baggage of the past century.

Рейтинг Goodreads
This book examines the crisis facing the American worker, with stagnant wages, surging welfare reliance and declining life expectancy. Oren Cass challenges conventional economic assumptions, arguing that prioritizing consumption over workers has led to the current situation. He offers new solutions, including a culture of respect for all kinds of work, and placing workers at the center of society's priorities. This book offers a groundbreaking re-evaluation of American society, economics, and public policy, revealing how to turn things around and support a thriving, self-sufficient society that offers opportunity to all.
