Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a second edition of this popular truck game developed by SCS Software from the Czech Republic. It is the most popular truck driving simulator on the market which gives you the chance to become a real truck driver.Truck Driver’s Life & DutiesHave you ever dreamed of being a truck driver? Dreams come true, and now you can experience the truck driver’s life. Everyone knows that factories produce, and supermarkets sell the products that we buy every day. However, a big number of truck drivers are hard-working people who provide us those products. But for their work, we would not get all those imported food, cosmetics and clothes. Now, you can be one of them and get to know their duties.Truck Driver’s GoalsAt the beginning, the player gets his first order and begins to drive a truck. Beginnings are hard, but the farther, the better. Every player has a six-steps goal to be the best driver: after you will start, you will make your first delivery, first trip abroad, first ADR certification, first valuable and time pressured cargo, and finally – buy your first own car. You can choose one of 13 licensed trucks from 7 manufacturers: MAN, Scania, DAF, Iveco, Renault Trucks, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz. Every truck can be customized according to your preferences – you can select the appearance of cabin, interior, chassis, engine, sideskirts, mirrors, tires, rims or even door handles and door steps. After buying your first car, you can also run a business and plan your company’s activity from the comfort of your home. As you can see, ETS 2 is not only a game about driving, but you can also grow your own shipping company and feel like a real businessman.Travel The WorldYou can visit 60 cities located in Belgium, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, the UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. If you dreamed of traveling and always wanted to visit those countries, you can do that with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (PC) which was intended both for professionals and amateurs. The American counterpart of this game (American Truck Simulator by SCS Software) became an inspiration for one of the players who found being a truck driver his dream job, learned a lot from the game and then took an exam and got a truck driver’s license. Euro Truck Simulator 2 can be also an inspiration for amateurs and enjoyable entertainment for professionally active and retired truck drivers.
From the acclaimed author of Bernanke's Test, "an essential title for any reader with investments or interest in financial instruments" (Library Journal). The End of the Euro begins with an overview of the birth of the euro itself. Understanding this history is essential to understand the anomalies built into the project from the beginning. These anomalies form the subject of chapter two, along with how they led to the situation that turned Greece, Portugal, and Spain into euro-destroying economic disaster areas. Chapter three shows how this was not an unforeseeable situation, as Europe's history is filled with earlier failed attempts to build monetary unions. Chapter four is focused on Germany, by far the most important country within EMU, and why the chances of Germany leaving the union are much higher than is generally assumed. The book concludes with an analysis of what lies in wait for the remains of the monetary union-and for a deeply divided and troubled continent in general. Either the EMU transforms itself fundamentally or it disintegrates. "Johan Van Overtveldt is a consistently insightful and incisive writer and I await each of his books with real anticipation." -Tyler Cowen, The Marginal Revolution blog "A whole generation of Europeans has found comfort in the idea that economic cooperation has overruled the pull of power politics and even some basic laws of economics. This book forcefully squashes that illusion. A must-read!" -Jonathan Holslag, research fellow at the Brussels Free University

When Jean Tirole won the Nobel Prize in Economics, he suddenly found himself being stopped in the street by strangers and asked to comment on current events far from his own research. His transformation from academic economist to public intellectual prompted him to reflect more deeply on the role economists and their discipline play in society. The result is Economics for the Common Good, a passionate manifesto for a world in which economics can help us improve the shared lot of societies and humanity as a whole. To show how, Tirole shares his insights on a broad range of questions affecting our everyday lives and the future of our society, including global warming, unemployment, the post-2008 global financial order, the euro crisis, the digital revolution, innovation, and the proper balance between the free market and regulation. Compelling and accessible, Economics for the Common Good sets a new agenda for the role of economics in society.
When Jean Tirole won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics, he suddenly found himself being stopped in the street by complete strangers and asked to comment on issues of the day, no matter how distant from his own areas of research. His transformation from academic economist to public intellectual prompted him to reflect further on the role economists and their discipline play in society. The result is Economics for the Common Good, a passionate manifesto for a world in which economics, far from being a "dismal science," is a positive force for the common good. To show how economics can help us realize the common good, Tirole shares his insights on a broad array of questions affecting our everyday lives and the future of our society, including global warming, unemployment, the post-2008 global financial order, the Euro crisis, the digital revolution, innovation, and the proper balance between the free market and regulation. Providing a rich account of how economics can benefit everyone, Economics for the Common Good sets a new agenda for the role of economics in society.
From the internationally bestselling author and prizewinning economist--a highly original guide to the global economy. In his bestselling 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism, Cambridge economist Ha-Joon Chang brilliantly debunked many of the predominant myths of neoclassical economics. Now, in an entertaining and accessible primer, he explains how the global economy actually works--in real-world terms. Writing with irreverent wit, a deep knowledge of history, and a disregard for conventional economic pieties, Chang offers insights that will never be found in the textbooks. Unlike many economists, who present only one view of their discipline, Chang introduces a wide range of economic theories, from classical to Keynesian, revealing how each has its strengths and weaknesses, and why there is no one way to explain economic behavior. Instead, by ignoring the received wisdom and exposing the myriad forces that shape our financial world, Chang gives us the tools we need to understand our increasingly global and interconnected world often driven by economics. From the future of the Euro, inequality in China, or the condition of the American manufacturing industry here in the United States--Economics: The User's Guide is a concise and expertly crafted guide to economic fundamentals that offers a clear and accurate picture of the global economy and how and why it affects our daily lives.
Like so many others, David Lebovitz dreamed about living in Paris ever since he first visited the city in the 1980s. Finally, after a nearly two-decade career as a pastry chef and cookbook author, he moved to Paris to start a new life. Having crammed all his worldly belongings into three suitcases, he arrived, hopes high, at his new apartment in the lively Bastille neighborhood. But he soon discovered it's a different world en France. From learning the ironclad rules of social conduct to the mysteries of men's footwear, from shopkeepers who work so hard not to sell you anything to the etiquette of working the right way around the cheese plate, here is David's story of how he came to fall in love with - and even understand - this glorious, yet sometimes maddening, city. When did he realize he had morphed into un vrai Parisien? It might have been when he found himself considering a purchase of men's dress socks with cartoon characters on them. Or perhaps the time he went to a bank with 135 euros in hand to make a 134-euro payment, was told the bank had no change that day, and thought it was completely normal. Or when he found himself dressing up to take out the garbage because he had come to accept that, in Paris, appearances and image mean everything. The more than 50 original recipes, for dishes both savory and sweet, such as Pork Loin with Brown Sugar-Bourbon Glaze, Braised Turkey in Beaujolais Nouveau with Prunes, Bacon and Bleu Cheese Cake, Chocolate-Coconut Marshmallows, Chocolate Spice Bread, Lemon-Glazed Madeleines, and Mocha–Crème Fraîche Cake, will have listeners running to the kitchen once they stop laughing. The Sweet Life in Paris is a deliciously funny, offbeat, and irreverent look at the city of lights, cheese, chocolate, and other confections. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Drummond.

From Nobel Prize-winning economist Jean Tirole, a bold new agenda for the role of economics in society.

The result is Economics for the Common Good, a passionate manifesto for a world in which economics, far from being a "dismal science," is a positive force for the common good. Economists are rewarded for writing technical papers in scholarly journals, not joining in public debates. But Tirole says we urgently need economists to engage with the many challenges facing society, helping to identify our key objectives and the tools needed to meet them. To show how economics can help us realize the common good, Tirole shares his insights on a broad array of questions affecting our everyday lives and the future of our society, including global warming, unemployment, the post-2008 global financial order, the euro crisis, the digital revolution, innovation, and the proper balance between the free market and regulation.
