How the War Was Won book cover
How the War Was Won
Air-Sea Power and Allied Victory in World War II (Cambridge Military Histories)
Phillips Payson O'Brien - 2015-04-28
Рейтинг Goodreads
Experience World War II in a new way with How the War Was Won. In this captivating history book, Phillips Payson O'Brien argues that air and sea power were key to the war's outcome, not just land battles. Discover how the Allies used their technological and economic advantages to dominate these areas, putting pressure on Germany and Japan's entire war machine. You'll see how battles like Stalingrad and Kursk were not the ultimate deciders of the war, but rather, air and sea power was.
Paul Krugman
O'Brien's illuminating book "How the war was won" has a great opening sentence: "There were no decisive battles in World War II." What he means is that given the huge war production of the combatants, even huge losses in individual battles could be replaced in a few weeks 3/      источник

Дюна book cover
Deluxe Edition
Frank Herbert - 2019-10-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1965)
Рейтинг Goodreads
В «Дюне» Фрэнку Герберту удалось совершить невозможное — создать своеобразную «хронику далекого будущего». И не было за всю историю мировой фантастики картины грядущего более яркой, более зримой, более модной и оригинальной. Цикл «Дюна» был и остается уникальным явлением — самым грандиозным, самым дерзким, самым масштабным творением за всю историю мировой фантастики.

As a teenager, I was a total Dune fanatic; my friends and I used to have mock knife fights where the killing blow had to be delivered slowly to get through the other guy's personal shield, which means a lot if you've read the book 2/      источник
Beige Book book cover
Beige Book
Summary of Commentary on Current Economic Conditions by Federal Rese.
Federal Reserve Districts - 2014-01-13
This economic report from the Federal Reserve Districts details a continued expansion in national economic activity at a modest to moderate pace. Consumer spending is growing and the travel and tourism sector is expanding in most districts. Business spending, demand for nonfinancial services, and manufacturing activity also show modest growth. Nonresidential construction, however, is expanding at a slower rate. Agricultural reports are mixed, and there were slight price and wage pressures. Overall, economic outlook remains optimistic despite the recent government shutdown and debt ceiling debate.
Paul Krugman
The Beige Book — economics by talking to people — is one of the Fed's more interesting institutions. It seems especially useful now, when conventional economic measures are having a hard time dealing with crazy times 1/      источник

Billionaires and Stealth Politics
Benjamin I. Page - 2018-12-03
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book offers insight into the growing influence of billionaires on American politics, and their use of "stealth politics" to promote policies that benefit their interests. The authors argue that this trend poses a threat to democracy in the United States, and offer solutions for increasing political accountability and reinvigorating majoritarian democracy.

Meanwhile, I've been reading a really interesting new political science book, which tells us that billionaires are, in general, very conservative and mostly back right-wing politicians and causes 3/      источник
