Medycyna > English Division
Profit Power Economics is the first comprehensive manual of competitive strategy and value-investing for the economic realities of the 21st century, an age in which information costs are getting close to zero and everyone is connected. This book offers a new economic paradigm for our age-and the tools to make the most of it. Readers learn to apply these rules step-by-step to navigate today's new challenges: to choose among vastly expanded investment opportunities; exploit unprecedented freedom to structure and manage modern global enterprises; win in new 3-dimensional corporate competition; and tailor strategies to new powerlaw market dynamics. Profit Power Economics includes lively lessons from the author's experience and examples from other successful investors and enterprises-all in the context of cutting-edge economics. Visionary strategist, experienced corporate executive, banker, and economist Mia de Kuijper takes readers from first principles to practical applications. She offers new ideas and concepts, illustrated with lively lessons from her own experience and from other successful investors and organizations. Profit Power Economics gives readers a clear grasp of the underlying forces that are reshaping our world as well as a step-by-step approach to build (or find) exceptionally high-return enterprises and to navigate new-age market dynamics. She declares that it is high time that we update our ideas about competition, business models, market dynamics and risks, even about the nature of winning itself. The emergence of perfect information-fast-moving, very cheap, universally available information and unlimited connectivity-is transforming our fundamentals so dramatically that this is grounds for doubting many of the most familiar principles of mainstream economics. Corporate leaders, political leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, strategists, not-for-profit organizations, marketers, and students of modern economics will find an invaluable resource in Profit Power Economics. a fascinating new book which combines corporate strategy and economics...Profit Power Economics is a very stimulating read, whether you are a business manager or someone trying to figure out the best career path.

Friedman, William Joseph Maier Professor of Political Economy, Harvard University, author of The Moral Consequences of Economic Growth Mia de Kuijper presents compelling ideas about the role of today's more complete, immediate, and very cheap information ... and how it still does not lead to perfect markets.

Theories of Political Economy Cambridge University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
'Political economy' has been the term used for the past 300 years to express the interrelationship between the political and economic affairs of the state. In Theories of Political Economy, first published in 1992, James A. Caporaso and David P. Levine explore some of the more important frameworks for understanding the relationship between politics and economics, including the classical, Marxian, Keynesian, neoclassical, state-centred, power-centred, and justice-centred approaches. The book emphasises both the differences between these frameworks and the issues common to them.

For the past 150 years, economics has been treated as a social science in which economies are modeled as a circular flow of income between producers and consumers. In this "perpetual motion" of interactions between firms that produce and households that consume, little or no accounting is given of the flow of energy and materials from the environment and back again; in the standard economic model, energy and matter are completely recycled in these transactions and economic activity is seemingly exempt from the second law of thermodynamics . As we enter the second half of the age of oil, and as energy supplies and the environmental impacts of energy production and consumption become major issues on the world stage, this exemption appears illusory at best. Why are economics and energy still studied and taught separately when all forms of economic production involve the transformation of materials, which in turn requires energy? §The answer probably lies in the recent era of cheap and seemingly limitless fossil energy. Without energy or other resource constraints, the rate-determining step in any economic transaction became the choice of insatiable humans attempting to get maximum psychological satisfaction from the money at their disposal, and markets appeared to have an infinite capacity to serve these needs and wants. However, "the end of cheap oil," as Campbell and Laherrere put it, is a game changer, and it is again time to ask why economics should be a social science when it is about the production, transportation and consumption of things, all of which is embedded in the biophysical world, dependent on the use of energy, and results in environmental impacts on local and global scales. Peak oil, the concept that world oil production has reached a maximum and will enter terminal decline, is now a reality (e.g., U.S. Energy Information Administration, 2009), and we must revise our economic assumptions.§In Energy and the Economy, concepts such as energy return on investment (EROI) provide powerful insights into the real balance sheets that drive our energy economy. Hall and Klitgaard explore the relation between energy and the wealth explosion of the 20th century, the failure of markets to recognize or efficiently allocate diminishing resources, the economic consequences of peak oil, the EROI for finding and exploiting new oil fields, and whether alternative energy technologies such as wind and solar power meet the minimum EROI requirements needed to run our society as we know it. This book is an essential read for all scientists and economists who have recognized the urgent need for a more scientific, unified approach to economics in an energy-constrained world, and serves as an ideal teaching text for the growing number of courses, such as the authors own, on the role of energy in society.
