Das neue Werk von Thomas Piketty in einer ungekürzten Lesung: Wirklich große Ökonomen beschränken sich nicht auf wissenschaftliche Grundlagenwerke, sondern suchen auch die öffentliche Debatte. Thomas Piketty ist hierfür das beste Beispiel. Der Autor des wohl bedeutendsten Werkes der politischen Ökonomie der letzten Jahrzehnte ist ein kritischer Beobachter seiner Zeit. Hier versammelt er seine auf die Finanz- und Eurokrise bezogenen Interventionen der letzten Jahre und führt dabei zugleich in die großen Themen seines internationalen Bestsellers ´´Das Kapital im 21. Jahrhundert´´ ein. Kann die Europäische Union der zentrale Gegenspieler eines außer Kontrolle geratenen Finanzkapitalismus werden oder kapituliert sie vor der Macht der Märkte? Wie lässt sich die Eurozone nachhaltig stabilisieren, nachdem die Zentralbank das Schlimmste vorerst abgewendet hat? Die Spekulation gegen einzelne Eurostaaten, so zeigt Thomas Piketty, kann letztlich nur durch die Einführung von Eurobonds und eine Stärkung der europäischen Institutionen verhindert werden. Andernfalls wird der Euro scheitern. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Herbert Schäfer. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hoer/001478/bk_hoer_001478_sample.mp3. Digitales Hörbuch im AAX Format.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

An engaging look at the road to a sustained economic recovery The global finance system can be regulated to prevent massive credit fraud, tame capitalism, confront the sovereign debt crisis, and move towards investing in the real economy and full employment. ´´Obamanomics´´, and American reinvention can lead to a sustained economic recovery but only together with major domestic, European, and global monetary reforms in cooperation with emerging nations. For decades, the U.S. dollar has served as the world´s reserve currency. But after the global market meltdown and the resulting massive stimulus spending meant to keep the Great Recession from becoming an even Greater Depression, confidence in America´s ability to make good on its growing debt is at all-time lows. In Brave New World Economy: Global Finance Threatens Our Future, Wilhelm Hankel and Robert Isaak two extremely controversial, yet highly respected experts on international economics and management describe how ´´Obamanomics,´´ the Euro crisis, and shift of economic growth from the West to emerging economies, if handled properly, can lead to true economic stability and job creation. Highlights America´s ´Great Bluff´ bail-out strategy to cope with the crisis and the reforms Obamanomics must make to bring about sustainable job recovery Describes the risks and rewards of borrowing from future generations in the United States, Europe, and the developing world to save the current generation Details how money became separated from government control and why the interbanking credit system threatens western nations with bankruptcy, undermining pensions, and the human right to work Points out why nation-states need to go back to helping themselves and not rely on the false promises of regional integration and globalization Shows how legalizing underground labor will create more jobs How we arrived at this economic crossroads isn´t as... 1.

Ein Beitrag aus der Maiausgabe der brand eins zum Schwerpunkt ´´Wettbewerb´´.Eigentlich ist doch alles in Ordnung. Die Firma hat im vergangenen Jahr mit 1000 Mitarbeitern weltweit einen Umsatz von 150 Millionen Euro erwirtschaftet. Die 450 Mitarbeiter am Stammsitz in Wermelskirchen brachten davon 86,8 Millionen Euro den höchsten Umsatz in der Geschichte der Firma, die es bereits seit 1923 gibt. Die Umsatzrendite lag wie in vielen Jahren zuvor bei acht Prozent. Stabile Verhältnisse bei der Tente International GmbH, dem größten europäischen Hersteller von Rollen. Und doch steht der Geschäftsführer Peter Fricke in seinem Kölner Büro mit Rheinblick und fragt: Ist unsere gute Rendite wirklich eine gute Rendite? Treffen wir die richtigen Entscheidungen bei Märkten und Produktentwicklung? Wir wissen nicht, woran wir sind. Erfolg ist immer relativ. Er hängt davon ab, wie die Wettbewerber dastehen. Und von denen wissen wir kaum etwas. Wir schauen uns um, doch unsere Verfolger verschwinden im Nebel. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Anna Doubek, Klaus Lauer.

Present at the Creation: The Story of CERN and ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Large Hadron Collider is the biggest, and by far the most powerful, machine ever built. A project of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, its audacious purpose is to re-create, in a 16.5-mile-long circular tunnel under the French-Swiss countryside, the immensely hot and dense conditions that existed some 13.7 billion years ago within the first trillionth of a second after the fiery birth of our universe. The collider is now crashing protons at record energy levels never created by scientists before, and it will reach even higher levels by 2013. Its superconducting magnets guide two beams of protons in opposite directions around the track. After accelerating the beams to 99.9999991 percent of the speed of light, it collides the protons head-on, annihilating them in a flash of energy sufficient to coalesce into a shower of particles and phenomena that have not existed since the first moments of creation. Within the LHC’s detectors, scientists hope to see empirical confirmation of key theories in physics and cosmology. In telling the story of what is perhaps the most anticipated experiment in the history of science, Amir D. Aczel takes us inside the control rooms at CERN at key moments when an international team of top researchers begins to discover whether this multibillion-euro investment will fulfill its spectacular promise. Through the eyes and words of the men and women who conceived and built CERN and the LHC, Aczel enriches all of us with a firm grounding in the scientific concepts we will need to appreciate the discoveries that will almost certainly spring forth when the full power of this great machine is finally unleashed. With Present at the Creation, we can all follow the progress of an experiment that promises to greatly satisfy the curiosity of anyone who ever concurred with Einstein when he said, ´´I want to know God’s thoughts - the rest is details.” 1.

This is the story of the greatest achievement in the history of international football. After decades of failure, Spain won the European Championship in 2008 and then the World Cup in 2010. At Euro 2012 they became the first team to win three consecutive tournament titles. Graham Hunter was inside the dressing room as the players celebrated after the finals of the World Cup and Euro 2012. His access-all-areas pass at all three tournaments has resulted in remarkable eyewitness accounts and new interviews with star players and the men behind the scenes. Across every day of La Roja’s treble, the author takes you on to the training ground; on the team bus; into the canteen; inside the hotels and on to the pitch. You’ll hear the team talks that inspired Spain to victory plus the inside stories from Fernando Torres, Xavi, Iker Casillas, David Villa, Cesc Fàbregas, Andrés Iniesta, Gerard Piqué, and the others behind an unprecedented era.

And the Weak Suffer What They Must?: Europe´s C...

A number one Sunday Times best seller (UK) A titanic battle is being waged for Europe´s integrity and soul, with the forces of reason and humanism losing out to growing irrationality, authoritarianism, and malice, promoting inequality and austerity. The whole world has a stake in a victory for rationality, liberty, democracy, and humanism. In January 2015, Yanis Varoufakis, an economics professor teaching in Austin, Texas, was elected to the Greek parliament with more votes than any other member of parliament. He was appointed finance minister, and, in the whirlwind five months that followed, everything he had warned about - the perils of the euro´s faulty design, the European Union´s shortsighted austerity policies, financialized crony capitalism, American complicity and rising authoritarianism - was confirmed as the ´´troika´´ (the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund, and European Commission) stonewalled his efforts to resolve Greece´s economic crisis. Here, Varoufakis delivers a fresh look at the history of Europe´s crisis and America´s central role in it. He presents the ultimate case against austerity, proposing concrete policies for Europe that are necessary to address its crisis and avert contagion to America, China, and the rest of the world. With passionate, informative, and at times humorous prose, he warns that the implosion of an admittedly crisis-ridden and deeply irrational European monetary union should and can be avoided at all cost. 1.

Tower of Basel: The Shadowy History of the Secr...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Tower of Basel is the first investigative history of the world’s most secretive global financial institution. Based on extensive archival research in Switzerland, Britain, and the United States, and in-depth interviews with key decision-makers including Paul Volcker, the former chairman of the US Federal Reserve; Sir Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England; and former senior Bank for International Settlements managers and officials. Tower of Basel tells the inside story of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS): the central bankers’ own bank. Created by the governors of the Bank of England and the Reichsbank in 1930, and protected by an international treaty, the BIS and its assets are legally beyond the reach of any government or jurisdiction. The bank is untouchable. Swiss authorities have no jurisdiction over the bank or its premises. The BIS has just 140 customers but made tax-free profits of $1.17 billion in 20112012.Since its creation, the bank has been at the heart of global events but has often gone unnoticed. Under Thomas McKittrick, the bank’s American president from 19401946, the BIS was open for business throughout the Second World War. The BIS accepted looted Nazi gold, conducted foreign exchange deals for the Reichsbank, and was used by both the Allies and the Axis powers as a secret contact point to keep the channels of international finance open. After 1945 the BIS still behind the scenes for decades provided the necessary technical and administrative support for the trans-European currency project, from the first attempts to harmonize exchange rates in the late 1940s to the launch of the Euro in 2002. It now stands at the center of efforts to build a new global financial and regulatory architecture, once again proving that it has the power to shape the financial rules of our world. Yet despite its pivotal role in the financial and political history of the last century and during the econ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Mawson.
