<p><strong>A bold agenda for a better way to assess societal well-being, by three of the world鈥檚 leading economists and statisticians</strong></p> <p><strong>"If we want to put people first, we have to know what matters to them, what improves their well-being, and how we can supply more of whatever that is."<br /></strong><strong>鈥擩oseph E. Stiglitz</strong><br /><br />In 2009, a group of economists led by Nobel laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz, French economist Jean-Paul Fitoussi, and Nobel laureate Amartya Sen issued a report challenging gross domestic product (GDP) as a measure of progress and well-being. Published as <em>Mismeasuring Our Lives</em> by The New Press, the book sparked a global conversation about GDP and a major movement among scholars, policy makers, and activists to change the way we measure our economies.<br /><br /><br /><br />Now, in <em>Measuring What Counts</em>, Stiglitz, Fitoussi, and Martine Durand鈥攕ummarizing the deliberations of a panel of experts on the measurement of economic performance and social progress hosted at the OECD, the international organization incorporating the most economically advanced countries鈥攑ropose a new, 鈥渂eyond GDP鈥?agenda. This book provides an accessible overview of the last decade鈥檚 global movement, sparked by the original critique of GDP, and proposes a new 鈥渄ashboard鈥?of metrics to assess a society鈥檚 health, including measures of inequality and economic vulnerability, whether growth is environmentally sustainable, and how people feel about their lives. Essential reading for our time, it also serves as a guide for policy makers and others on how to use these new tools to fundamentally change the way we measure our lives鈥攁nd to plot a radically new path forward.</p>

<b>An international business expert helps you understand and navigate cultural differences in this insightful and practical guide, perfect for both your work and personal life.</b><br /><br />Americans precede anything negative with three nice comments; French, Dutch, Israelis, and Germans get straight to the point; Latin Americans and Asians are steeped in hierarchy; Scandinavians think the best boss is just one of the crowd. It's no surprise that when they try and talk to each other, chaos breaks out.<br /><br />In <i>The Culture Map</i>, INSEAD professor Erin Meyer is your guide through this subtle, sometimes treacherous terrain in which people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together. She provides a field-tested model for decoding how cultural differences impact international business, and combines a smart analytical framework with practical, actionable advice.<br />

The world is changing in ways most of us find incomprehensible. Terrorism spills out of the Middle East into Europe. Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, China and Japan vie to see who can be most aggressive. Financial breakdown in Asia and Europe guts growth, challenging hard-won political stability.<br />Yet for the Americans, these changes are fantastic. Alone among the world's powers, only the United States is geographically wealthy, demographically robust, and energy secure. That last piece -- American energy security -- is rapidly emerging as the most critical piece of the global picture.<br />The American shale revolution does more than sever the largest of the remaining ties that bind America's fate to the wider world. It re-industrializes the United States, accelerates the global order's breakdown, and triggers a series of wide ranging military conflicts that will shape the next two decades. The common theme? Just as the global economy tips into chaos, just as global energy becomes dangerous, just as the world really needs the Americans to be engaged, the United States will be...absent.<br />In 2014's The Accidental Superpower, geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan made the case that geographic, demographic and energy trends were unravelling the global system. Zeihan takes the story a step further in The Absent Superpower, mapping out the threats and opportunities as the world descends into Disorder.

As Pogo once said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."<br />The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge.<br /><br />Icelanders wanted to stop fishing and become investment bankers. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pi帽ata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.<br /><br />Michael Lewis's investigation of bubbles beyond our shores is so brilliantly, sadly hilarious that it leads the American reader to a comfortable complacency: oh, those foolish foreigners. But when he turns a merciless eye on California and Washington, DC, we see that the narrative is a trap baited with humor, and we understand the reckoning that awaits the greatest and greediest of debtor nations.

Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once鈥攁nd it is dizzying.</p><p>In <i>Thank You for Being Late</i>, version 2.0, with a new afterword, Thomas L. Friedman exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. His thesis: to understand the twenty-first century, you need to understand that the planet鈥檚 three largest forces鈥擬oore鈥檚 law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)鈥攁re accelerating all at once. These accelerations are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. The year 2007 was the major inflection point: the release of the iPhone, together with advances in silicon chips, software, storage, sensors, and networking, created a new technology platform that is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. It is providing vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world鈥攐r to destroy it.</p><p>With his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, Friedman shows that we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations鈥攊f we slow down, if we dare to be late and use the time to reimagine work, politics, and community. <i>Thank You for Being Late</i> is an essential guide to the present and the future.</p>

<b>How can garbage turn into gold? What does recycling have to do with globalization? Where does all that stuff we throw away go, anyway? </b><br /><br />When you drop your Diet Coke can or yesterday's newspaper in the recycling bin, where does it go? Probably halfway around the world, to people and places that clean up what you don't want and turn it into something you can't wait to buy. In <i>Junkyard Planet</i>, Adam Minter-veteran journalist and son of an American junkyard owner-travels deeply into a vast, often hidden, 500-billion-dollar industry that's transforming our economy and environment.<br /><br />Minter takes us from back-alley Chinese computer recycling operations to recycling factories capable of processing a jumbo jet's worth of trash every day. Along the way, we meet an international cast of characters who have figured out how to squeeze Silicon Valley-scale fortunes from what we all throw away. <i>Junkyard Planet</i> reveals how 鈥済oing green鈥?usually means making money-and why that's often the most sustainable choice, even when the recycling methods aren't pretty.<br /><br />With unmatched access to and insight on the waste industry, and the explanatory gifts and an eye for detail worthy of a John McPhee or William Langewiesche, Minter traces the export of America's garbage and the massive profits that China and other rising nations earn from it. What emerges is an engaging, colorful, and sometimes troubling tale of how the way we consume and discard stuff brings home the ascent of a developing world that recognizes value where Americans don't. <i>Junkyard Planet</i> reveals that Americans might need to learn a smarter way to take out the trash.
