欧洲何以征服世界?

Call Number: 909.08/H699=1/2017
(美)菲利普 霍夫曼著 ; 赖希倩译 中信出版集团 2017-6

1492-1914年间,欧洲人征服了84%的世界。为什么几个世纪以来,中国、日本、土耳其和南亚的文明更先进,却是欧洲登上了权力之巅?为什么这些强权国家没能确立全球主导地位?为什么欧洲征服了世界?作者菲利普·霍夫曼指出,地理、传染病以及工业革命等传统解释都不能提供答案。相反,政经因素起到了举足轻重的作用。霍夫曼认为,如果政经因素迥然不同,那么欧洲便不可能实现关键的军事创新,则另一个强权国家将主导世界。

软价值:

量子时代的财富创造新范式
Call Number: 658.4063/T420/2017
滕泰著 中信出版社 2017-9

量子时代最宝贵的资源,是人的创造性思维,这是一次新的财富大发现。本书是全球首部建立在量子理论基础上的经济学著作,探究如何为人类的思维活动定价,软价值如何开启未来财富的新起点。为什么很多制造业为我们的生活提供各种产品却面临亏损或倒闭的命运,而哈利•波特的作者J.K.罗琳几乎不消耗任何地球资源却创造出亿万财富?为什么奔驰的前首席设计师认为,他们卖的不是汽车,而是艺术品,只是碰巧它会跑?有哪些软产业一直向公众提供直接、免费的服务,股东却通过立体、弯曲的路径赚得盆满钵满?

软价值既不取决于要素成本,也不取决于需求,甚至也不取决于供求关系,软价值是由有效投入因子C、传播群体广度N,以及软价值乘数m共同创造的。本书将量子理论引入现代经济学,不仅揭示了知识产业、信息产业、文化娱乐产业、金融产业、其他服务业完全不同于牛顿物理世界的价值创造和价值实现规律,而且阐述了后工业时代社会组织方式的软性变革和量子时代的全球经济新范式。软价值时代,如果人们还抱着“物质财富观”不放,用硬价值的“算术级增长”去追赶软价值的“指数级增长”,结果一定会受到无情的冲击,就如同近现代制造业曾经无情地冲击中小手工业者一样。本书提出的家庭、企业、国家的软价值战略,对企业家、投资者、学者和决策者都具有重要的参考价值。

激荡十年,水大鱼大:

中国企业,2008-2018
吴晓波著 中信出版集团 2017-11

急速扩容的经济规模和不断升级的消费能力,如同一个恣意泛滥的大水,它在焦虑地寻找疆域的边界,而被猛烈冲击的部分,则同样焦虑地承受着衍变的压力和不适。它既体现在各社会阶层之间的冲突、各利益集团之间的矛盾与妥协,同时,也体现在中国与美国、日本、欧盟,以及周遭邻国之间的政治及经济关系。

大水之中,必有大鱼。在这十年当中,中国公司的体量发生了巨大的变化,在世界500强的名单中,中国公司的数量从35家增加到了115家,其中,有四家进入到前十大的行列中。在互联网及电子消费类公司中,腾讯和阿里巴巴的市值分别增加了15倍和70倍,闯进全球前十大市值公司之列,在智能手机领域,有四家中国公司进入前六强,而在传统的冰箱、空调和电视机市场上,中国公司的产能均为全球第一。在排名前十大的全球房地产公司中,中国公司占到了7家。全球资产规模最大的前四大银行都是中国的。中国的商业投资界发生了基础设施级别的巨变,以互联网为基础性平台的生态被视为新的世界,它以更高的效率和新的消费者互动关系,重构了商业的基本逻辑,在十年时间里,中国人的信息获取、社交、购物、日常服务以及金融支付等方式都发生了令人难以置信的改变。

Call Number: 658/H236=1/2017
查尔斯 汉迪著; 崔美薇译 东方出版中心 2017-7

四位管理之神,正象征着四种特色鲜明的管理方式和企业文化——富有个人魅力的众神之王宙斯,崇尚秩序的太阳神阿波罗,尊崇创造力的智慧女神雅典娜,还有追随个性与专业性的酒神狄奥尼索斯。每种组织文化,都有自己的文化假设,进而产生了形式各异的管理、架构、程序与报酬体系。没有文化上的觉醒,组织就可能尊崇错误的神,从而导致效率低下和管理松弛。文化的混乱,乃是危害组织的主要病症之一。因此,管理者必须清楚自己组织的文化倾向,知道应该追随哪个神,选择怎样的文化。

这本管理学经典之作,力图帮助人们去除组织的神秘感,了解各种组织的运作方式,从而促使更多的组织和个人思考自己目前的工作方式,以及未来不得不采用的工作方式。

Demographic change and long-run development

Call Number: 338.9/D383/2017
Matteo Cervellati, Uwe Sunde MIT Press 2017-10

Over the last two hundred years, mortality and fertility levels in the Western world have dropped to unprecedented levels. This demographic transition was accompanied by an economic transition that led to widespread education and economic growth after centuries of near-stagnation. At the same time, other changes have occurred in family structures, culture, and the organization of society. Economists have only recently begun to take into account the demographic transition from high mortality and high fertility when modeling and researching economic development. This CESifo volume reviews recent approaches to economic demography, considering such topics as the bio-geographic origins of comparative development differences, the role of health improvements and mortality decline, as well as physiological, familial, cultural, and social aspects.

After an overview of the study of demography and economic demography, the chapters cover subjects including the Neolithic era and the period of the formation of states and social institutions; longevity and economic growth; household decision making and fertility; land inequality, education, and marriage in nineteenth century Prussia; and caste systems and technology in pre-modern societies. The book concludes with a call for further investigation of the institutional and social factors that influence demographics and economies, suggesting that unified growth theory offers a potential approach to studying development.

Natural resources as capital

Call Number: 333.7/K187/2017
Larry Karp MIT Press 2017-10

This introduction to natural resource economics treats resources as a type of capital; their management is an investment problem requiring forward-looking behavior within a dynamic setting. Market failures are widespread, often associated with incomplete or nonexistent property rights, complicated by policy failures. The book covers standard resource economics topics, including both the Hotelling model for nonrenewable resources and models for renewable resources. The book also includes some topics in environmental economics that overlap with natural resource economics, including climate change.

The text emphasizes skills and intuition needed to think about dynamic models and institutional remedies in the presence of both market and policy failures. It presents the nuts and bolts of resource economics as applied to nonrenewable resources, including the two-period model, stock-dependent costs, and resource scarcity. The chapters on renewable resources cover such topics as property rights as an alternative to regulation, the growth function, steady states, and maximum sustainable yield, using fisheries as a concrete setting. Other, less standard, topics covered include microeconomic issues such as arbitrage and the use of discounting; policy problems including the "Green Paradox"; foundations for policy analysis when market failures are important; and taxation. Appendixes offer reviews of the relevant mathematics. The book is suitable for use by upper-level undergraduates or, with the appendixes, masters-level courses.

It lists historical great bubbles of various markets over hundreds of years.

Financial crisis, corporate governance, and bank capital

Sanjai Bhagat Cambridge University Press 2017-3

In the aftermath of the 2007-8 crisis, senior policymakers and the media have blamed excessive risk-taking undertaken by bank executives, in response to their compensation incentives, for the crisis. The inevitable follow-up to this was to introduce stronger financial regulation, in the hope that better and more ethical behaviour can be induced. Despite the honourable intentions of regulation, such as the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, it is clear that many big banks are still deemed too big to fail. This book argues that by restructuring executive incentive programmes to include only restricted stock and restricted stock options with very long vesting periods, and financing banks with considerably more equity, the potential of future financial crises can be minimized. It will be of great value to corporate executives, corporate board members, institutional investors and economic policymakers, as well as graduate and undergraduate students studying finance, economics and law.

how modern companies use entrepreneurial management to transform culture and drive long-term growth
Call Number: 338.04/R559/2017
Eric Ries Currency 2017-10

Eric Ries laid out the practices of successful startups – building a minimal viable product, customer-focused and scientific testing based on a build-measure-learn method of continuous innovation, and deciding whether to persevere or pivot. In this book, the author turns attention to an entirely new group of organizations: established enterprises like iconic multinationals GE and Toyota, tech titans like Amazon and Facebook, and the next generation of Silicon Valley upstarts like Airbnb and Twilio.

Drawing on author's experiences over the past five years working with these organizations, as well as nonprofits, NGOs, and governments, Ries lays out a system of entrepreneurial management that leads organizations of all sizes  and from every industry to sustainable growth and long-term impact.

Breaking the zero-sum game :

transforming societies through inclusive leadership
Call Number: 331.1143/B685/2017
Aldo Boitano de Moras, Raúl Lagomarsino Dutra, H. Eric Schockman Emerald Publishing 2017-9

In a world plagued by wicked problems, escaping the win-lose dynamics of zero-sum game approaches is crucial for finding integrated, inclusive solutions to complex issues. In this book, the reader will uncover real-life examples of inclusive leaders that have broken the zero-sum game. From Ivy League colleges to African villages, from the very top of the Catholic Church to anarchist conferences and meetings, inclusive leadership can be applied – and the protagonists will tell you how.

As the examples in the book demonstrate, inclusive leadership is not the privilege of a few gifted individuals with extraordinary human qualities. Inclusive leaders are not necessarily charismatic (like Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, or Martin Luther King, Jr). The vast majority of inclusive leaders are just regular everyday people. They only differ — and what a difference it makes! — in being able to turn what seem to be zero-sum problems into opportunities for inclusiveness.

Including a foreword from Edwin Hollander, a pioneering visionary of inclusive leadership, you will find concrete examples and tools in this book that you can start using from day one (and in your own way) as an inclusive leader.

Management consulting today and tomorrow :

perspectives and advice from leading experts
Thomas H. Olson, Flemming Poulfelt Routledge 2017-9

This new edition gathers more than 22 experts to outline the theory behind consulting, providing insight into change processes and management issues in the field. The business of consulting has grown faster than most other businesses, due not only to increased demand by clients, but also to the innovative capabilities of numerous consulting firms as they develop new services.

Divided into six parts, the book introduces readers to the consulting industry, addressing the major practice areas, contexts, and implementations of the field. Significant updates detail the effect of the economic troubles between 2004 and 2010 and then 2010 and now; analyze the market response to consulting in recent years; and provide a more thorough understanding of how consulting is applied in the different areas of a business, such as operations, marketing, and finance. Introductions written by the editors offer further insight into the themes and learning goals of each section, helping readers to recognize the elements of a successful consultation, and utilize their new skill set. The text concludes with a look at the future of consulting with regards to ethics standards and how strong manager-client relationships contribute to financial growth. Readers will also learn how the developing field of entrepreneurship creates new economic structures and job opportunities.

Ethics

Organizational moral learning : a communication approach

a communication approach
Call Number: 174.4/B621/2017

This book presents communication-based recommendations for managers and leaders to encourage authentic moral dialogue at work so that these discussions can be used to update work practices vigilantly as organizations strive for ethical excellence. Organizational ethics are crucial to individual, organizational, national, and even global well-being, and this work leads a revolution in thinking about how to manage organizational ethics.

History

The four :

the hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google
Scott Galloway Portfolio 2017-10

Instead of buying the myths these compa­nies broadcast, the author Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they’re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world's first trillion-dollar company, can anyone chal­lenge them?

In the same irreverent style that has made Galloway one of the world's famous business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves.

Americana :

a 400-year history of American capitalism
Call Number: 330.973/S774/2017
Bhu Srinivasan Penguin Press 2017-9

From the days of the Mayflower and the Virginia Company, America has been a place for people to dream, invent, build, tinker, and bet the farm in pursuit of a better life. Americana takes us on a four-hundred-year journey of this spirit of innovation and ambition through a series of Next Big Things -- the inventions, techniques, and industries that drove American history forward: from the telegraph, the railroad, guns, radio, and banking to flight, suburbia, and sneakers, culminating with the Internet and mobile technology at the turn of the twenty-first century. The result is a thrilling alternative history of modern America that reframes events, trends, and people we thought we knew through the prism of the value that, for better or for worse, this nation holds dearest: capitalism.

In a winning, accessible style, Bhu Srinivasan boldly takes on four centuries of American enterprise, revealing the unexpected connections that link them. We learn how Andrew Carnegie's early job as a telegraph messenger boy paved the way for his leadership of the steel empire that would make him one of the nation's richest men; how the gunmaker Remington reinvented itself in the postwar years to sell typewriters; how the inner workings of the Mafia mirrored the trend of consolidation and regulation in more traditional business; and how a 1950s infrastructure bill triggered a series of events that produced one of America's most enduring brands: KFC. Reliving the heady early days of Silicon Valley, we are reminded that the start-up is an idea as old as America itself.

渐行渐近的金融周期

Call Number: 338.542/P566/2017
彭文生著 中信出版社 2017-6

中国在经历第一个金融周期,上半场的繁荣已经持续了10年,房地产和信用(债务)过度扩张损害潜在增长率,扭曲经济结构,加剧贫富分化和环境污染,不可持续。央行加息(紧货币)、监管加强(紧信用)、结构改革包括税制调整,独立或合力作用,将触发金融周期拐点。下半场调整意味着房地产去泡沫、非政府部门去杠杆,经济增长在一段时间面临下行压力,但结构改善。寄希望于刺激增长和通胀去杠杆、家庭加杠杆扶持企业降杠杆、只减债务不减资产泡沫、汇率贬值消化高房价等都是不现实的。进入金融周期下半场后,理想的宏观政策是“紧信用、松货币、宽财政”,但这是技术层面的调整,不改变金融的基本结构。促进金融服务实体经济还需要深层次的变革:一是央行(财政)扩表增加货币投放,降低对银行信贷的依赖,央行发行数字货币支持财政大幅减税;二是回归某种形式的分业经营,存款归存款、投资归投资,区隔金融的公用事业和风险部分。

华尔街之战:

贝尔斯登72小时覆灭记
(美)凯特 凯利著; 史雷译 机械工业出版社 2017-4

贝尔斯登的高管们素以傲慢闻名华尔街。也许正是这种行事风格为他们赢得了无数的财富,让贝尔斯登在从大萧条到互联网泡沫破裂以来的每一次危机当中都能全身而退。不幸的是,次贷危机引发了贝尔斯登高层的内讧。通过鲜活的,且从未公开的细节,作者凯利让我们切身感受到了这个惊心动魄的周末。

作者简介:凯特·凯利,《华尔街日报》的金牌记者,曾经供职于《时代》杂志社和《纽约观察家报》。她因2008年5月在《华尔街日报》头版刊登的叙述贝尔斯登兴衰的三部曲而享誉全球。

本书的开篇可靠地论证了收入不平等与2008年金融危机以及大萧条的联系。当下主要的经济理论认为2008年危机和大萧条主要是低利率、宽松的借贷环境和房地产价格泡沫导致的。然而通过用统计的方法进行仔细的分析后,马修·德雷南发现收入不平等才是那次危机的主要原因。同时德雷南还发现在经济大萧条和经济衰退前的消费者行为存在惊人的相似之处。

作者简介:马修·德雷南 (Matthew P. Drennan) 是加州大学洛杉矶分校(UCLA)城市规划的访问学者以及康奈尔大学城市与区域规划系的名誉教授。

Economics

Beeronomics:

how beer explains the world
Johan Swinnen, Devin Briski Oxford University Press 2017-11

At the same time when mega-mergers in the brewing industry are creating huge transnationals selling their beer across the globe, the craft beer movement in America and Europe has brought the rich history of ancient brewing techniques to the forefront in recent years. But less talked about is the economic influence of this beverage on the world and the myriad ways it has shaped the course of history. The book covers world history through the lens of beer, exploring the common role that beer taxation has played throughout and providing context for recognizable brands and consumer trends and tastes.

The book examines key developments that have moved the brewing industry forward. Its most ubiquitous ingredient, hops, was used by the Hanseatic League to establish the export dominance of Hamburg and Bremen in the sixteenth century. During the late nineteenth century, bottom-fermentation led to the spread of industrial lager beer. Industrial innovations in bottling, refrigeration, and TV advertising paved the way for the consolidation and market dominance of major macrobreweries like Anheuser Busch in America and Artois Brewery in Belgium during the twentieth century. We're now in the era of global integration -- one multinational AB InBev, claims 46% of all beer profits -- but there's a counterrevolution afoot of small, independent craft breweries in America, Belgium and around the world. Beeronomics surveys these trends, giving context to why you see which brands and styles on shelves at your local supermarket or on tap at the nearby pub.

Honours versus money:

the economics of awards
Call Number: 330/F893/2017
Bruno S. Frey, Jana Gallus Oxford University Press 2017-10

Presenting empirical evidence using modern statistical techniques the book argues that awards can significantly raise performance in different contexts even if they are purely symbolic, recommending how this can be used in practice. It makes the case for reorienting our focus- away from the monetary or material dimensions of work and private life, and towards the symbolic dimensions to celebrate and shine a light on merit and achievement.

Honours versus Money discusses award bestowals in their different forms and facets, including as signals and as components of organisations' human resource strategies. It opens our perspective for motivational strategies beyond money, while also outlining their potential pitfalls.

Finance

Public-private partnership projects in infrastructure:

an essential guide for policy makers
Jeffrey Delmon Cambridge University Press 2017-10

Infrastructural investment is critical to economic growth, quality of life, poverty reduction, access to education, health care, and the achievement of many of the goals of a robust economy. But infrastructure is difficult for the public sector to get right. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can help; they can provide more efficient procurement, focus on consumer satisfaction and lifecycle maintenance, and provide new sources of investment, in particular through limited recourse debt. But PPPs present challenges of their own. This book provides a practical guide to PPPs for policy makers and strategists, showing how governments can enable and encourage PPPs; providing a step-by-step analysis of the development of PPP projects; and explaining how financing works, what contractual structures look like, and how risk allocation works in practice. It includes specific discussion of each infrastructure sector, with a focus on the strategic and policy issues essential for successful development of infrastructure through PPPs. This second edition includes new sections on institutional frameworks, mechanisms for leveraging public financing, small scale PPP projects and more.

Adaptive markets:

financial evolution at the speed of thought
Call Number: 332.64/L795/2017
Andrew W. Lo Princeton University Press 2017-5

Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, the book shows that the theory of market efficiency isn't wrong but merely incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. Lo's new paradigm explains how financial evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thought―a fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation.

A fascinating intellectual journey filled with compelling stories, Adaptive Markets starts with the origins of market efficiency and its failures, turns to the foundations of investor behavior, and concludes with practical implications―including how hedge funds have become the Galápagos Islands of finance, what really happened in the 2008 meltdown, and how we might avoid future crises.

Management

Principles:

Call Number: 650.1/D143/2017
Ray Dalio Simon & Schuster 2017-9

In the book, Dalio shares what he's learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book's hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of "radical truth" and "radical transparency", include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating "baseball cards" for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, this book also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they're seeking to achieve.

Open source leadership:

reinventing management when there's no more business as usual
Call Number: 58.4092/P474/2018
Rajeev Peshawaria McGraw-Hill 2017-10

In the book, the author reveals the vision, insight, and practices he has used to help some of today’s largest and most influential organizations meet the open source world head on. Peshawaria reveals the answers to these questions: What’s the most effective leadership style in a world of 24/7 connectivity? How has the very concept of leadership changed in the open source era? How do you inspire and reward performance in the “gig economy"? How do you measure engagement and effectively address the gaps? How can you lead innovation--quickly and continuously?

Based on his company’s groundbreaking research spanning 28 countries, he concludes that traditional industrial age thinking needs a massive upgrade to successfully navigating the brave new world of business. this book rewrites the rules of management, giving you a unique look at the most common misperceptions, illusions, and downright wrong information you’ve been getting about what works and what doesn’t. It provides a new, counterintuitive model for seizing competitive edge in industries. Among other issues the book argues convincingly that “positive autocracy” must replace democratic leadership; talent and innovation are abundant not scarce; early identification of high-potentials is counter-productive; and setting employees free to do as little as they want will increase productivity.

The book tells the story of how a small group of libertarian entrepreneurs began in the 1990s to hijack the original decentralized vision of the Internet, in the process creating three monopoly firms-Facebook, Amazon and Google-that now determine the future of the music, film, television, publishing and news industries.

It offers a vital, forward-thinking prescription for how artists can reclaim their audiences using knowledge of the past and a determination to work together. Using his own half century career as a music and film producer and early pioneer of streaming video online, Taplin offers new ways to think about the design of the World Wide Web and specifically the way we live with the firms that dominate it.

The spartan w@rker

Call Number: 158.72/P461/2018
Konstantinos Perrotis, Cary L. Cooper Routledge 2017-5

The authors approach the research of Organizational Psychology and Occupational Stress from a fresh and different perspective. It compares the modern work environment with the features and way of life of the famous Greek Spartan warriors. Spartan warriors embraced a unique lifestyle which made them become more resilient, engaged, committed and efficient in their everyday lives, both in times of peace and war. The book proposes that in an increasingly demanding work environment, such an approach would be very beneficial for workers who want and need to learn how to become more resilient and thus remain unaffected from the daily stresses of modern life. This book dedicates itself to explaining in detail the mechanisms through which occupational stress negatively affects our lives as well as in proposing techniques that will help individuals to enhance their coping skills in dealing with stress. This book will appeal to a broad range of professionals looking to understand and reduce the occurrence of occupational stress with its playful style, which is nevertheless grounded in scientific literature and research.

OKR工作法:

谷歌,领英等顶级公司的高效秘籍
(美)克里斯蒂娜 沃特科著;明道团队译 中信出版社 2017-9

本书讲述了一种风靡硅谷科技企业的全新工作模式。硅谷的两个年轻人汉娜和杰克,像很多人一样,在萌生了一个创意后,就走上创业之路。但是,很快他们发现好的想法远远不够,必须还有一套适合的管理方法确保梦想能实现。为了让创业团队生存下来,汉娜和杰克遭受了内心的苦苦挣扎和煎熬。他们患上“新奇事物综合症”,什么都想做,导致无法聚焦,同时需要不停地处理沟通问题。本书从这个险象环生的创业故事讲起,围绕一家创业公司的试错、困惑、决断和成长的全过程说明了OKR(Objectives and Key Results,目标与关键成果)方法的基本原理和实施原则。

OKR起源于与英特尔,后来谷歌、领英、Zynga(社交游戏巨头)、General Assembly(硅谷知名创业教育公司)使用它实现了持续高速的增长。O表示目标(Objective),KR表示关键结果(Key Results),目标就是指你想做什么事情(比如上线一款游戏),关键结果就是指如何确认你做到了那件事(比如一天2.5万个下载量,5万美元收入)。

本书的第二部分,本书的作者、领英资深产品经理克里斯蒂娜•沃特克总结了她在领英、Zynga以及许多硅谷大红大紫的公司中学到的管理经验,详细阐述了OKR的基本框架,目标制定方法,从组织层面的落地方法,以及产品团队完成目标的时间规划,执行OKR的过程中的常见错误等。

赫什 舍夫林(Hersh Shefrin)著;贺学会,王晶,朱伟骅译 上海财经大学出版社 2017-9

证券交易大师杰西·利维摩尔在20世纪初说:“华尔街永不改变,股票会变,钱袋会变,但市场永不改变,因为人性永不改变。”在这本书分析实际影响决策过程因素的权威指南中,行为金融大师赫什·舍夫林运用最新的心理学研究来帮助我们理解那些影响股票选择、金融服务和公司财务决策的人类行为。赫什·舍夫林认为金融从业人员必须承认和了解行为金融—将心理学运用到金融行为中—以避免由于人为失误引发的诸多投资陷阱。通过丰富多彩的,常常带有诙谐意味的真实世界的案例,赫什·舍夫林指出了资金管理人、证券分析师、财务规划师、投资银行家和公司领导人所犯的一些常见的、代价不菲的错误,因此读者可以获得有关自身金融决策的有价值的洞见。

石油即政治:

埃克森美孚石油公司与美国权力
(美)史蒂夫 科尔著;杨婵宇译 文汇出版社 2017-7

对财富与权力的争夺总是伴随在石油周围。这种争夺动摇了世界的经济、支配了战争的结果并且改变了人和国家的命运,所以石油公司、金融集团和各国政府之间一直联系紧密。基辛格说:“谁控制了石油,谁就控制了世界,谁就能控制对手。”石油企业一直都站在全球权力的顶峰。世界五百强中的前十大公司中,半数都是石油公司。作为全世界私人石油企业的代表,埃克森美孚石油公司俨然是一个独立的国家。因为这家公司拥有雇佣军、外交部和情报部门,掌握着国家能源命脉,可以直接安排元首会晤、左右国内政策制定,代替国防部做战争评估、支配战争的结果,还能在一些地区行驶大使馆的外交职能……所以埃克森美孚石油公司董事长雷克斯•蒂勒森辞职后,能够直接出任美国国务卿。因为管理一家石油公司和治理一个国家的工作内容几乎一样。

Foreign Direct Investment and the Chinese Economy:

A Critical Assessment
Chunlai Chen Edward Elgar Publishing 2017-10

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of foreign direct investment, with extensive empirical evidence, on the Chinese economy over the last three and a half decades.

Chen presents a compelling and thorough analysis of the leading theoretical explanations of the impact of FDI through a series of rigorous and in-depth empirical investigations on China's regional economic growth, urban-rural income inequality and urbanization development. These case studies show that despite FDI's contribution to economic growth, reduction of income inequality and the rise in urbanization, there is further evidence of uneven regional distribution of FDI inflow. This has negatively affected economic growth, exacerbated income inequality and impeded urbanization of inland China. The book concludes by demonstrating that these findings have important policy implications, not only for China, but also for other developing countries influenced by the implementation of FDI policies.

Management

Supply chain risk management:

understanding emerging threats to global supply chains
John Manners-Bell Kogan Page 2017-11

With increased outsourcing, globalisation, and just-in-time production, the ability to effectively identify, assess and manage risks in the supply chain is more important than ever. This book is a practical learning resource which explores a wide range of external threats to the supply chain such as natural disasters, economic risk, terrorism and piracy. An ideal companion to academic and professional training courses, it presents a robust set of strategies which can minimise and mitigate supply chain risk.

The book includes numerous case studies, with each case documenting the company's supply chain or production strategy and outlining the catastrophic event which occurred. This comprehensive second instalment of Supply Chain Risk, which won the 2014 ACA-Bruel Special Mention prize, analyses the supply chain consequences, material losses, management response, and resultant changes to a company's supply chain strategy. With a new chapter on cyber threats to supply chains, it also includes academic pedagogy such as objectives, summaries and a key point checklist in each chapter.

Quantum negotiation:

the art of getting what you need
Call Number: 658.4052/M322/2017
Karen Walch, Stephan M. Mardyks, Joerg Schmitz Wiley 2017-12

This is a handbook for getting what you need using a mindset and behaviors based on a refreshingly expansive perspective on negotiation. Rather that viewing every negotiation as an antagonistic and combative relationship, this book shows you how to move beyond the traditional pseudo win-win to construct a deal in which all parties get what they need. By exploring who we are as negotiators in the context of social conditioning, this model examines the cognitive, psychological, social, physical, and spiritual aspects of negotiation to help you produce more sustainable, prosperous, and satisfying agreements.

We often think of negotiation as taking place in a boardroom, a car dealership, or any other contract-centered situation; in reality, we are negotiating every time we ask for something we need or want. Building more robust negotiation behaviors that resonate beyond the boardroom requires a deep engagement with others and a clear mindset of interdependence. This book helps you shift your perspective and build these important skills through a journey of discovery, reflection, and action.

This book is mainly for managers and leaders of small and medium companies and mid-level management of large companies; general public interested in managerial leadership.

New and experienced managers will benefit from principles and approaches, and checklists for managerial challenges used in the book.The book covers a broad range of managerial challenges - from role definition to strategy to communication. Key features: based on author's experience and not on surveys (as are many other management books); useful for managers and leaders of small and medium companies and mid-level management (directors and VP's) of large companies;contains problems that are presented from the point of view of the today's managers.

how to mobilize social word of mouth (sWOM)
Call Number: 658.872/W873/2017
Natalie T. Wood, Caroline K. Muñoz Business Expert Press 2017-2

Electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) communication has been shown to influence consumer actions across a variety of industries (King, Racherla, and Bush 2014). A significant portion of eWOM occurs on social media platforms. Whether it is a status update to Facebook of an upcoming vacation, a picture of a laundry room makeover on Pinterest, or a YouTube video discussing the features on the new iPhone, consumers are turning to a variety of social platforms to make everyday purchasing decisions easier for themselves and others. Indeed, social word of mouth (sWOM)-a subset of eWOM-has incredible reach with the potential to influence over two billion active social media consumers. The purpose of this book is to examine the influence of sWOM and provide guidance on how to operationalize its growing power. The goal of this book is to bring together industry best practices and academic research to help construct social media content that speaks with your brand voice, stimulates engagement, inspires consumers to share (#share), and complies with industry and federal guidelines. Each chapter highlights a key area of sWOM that will further readers' understanding and provide actionable information to assist readers in mobilizing positive sWOM for your company.

Ethics

Resisting corporate corruption:

cases in practical ethics from enron through the financial crisis
Stephen V. Arbogast Wiley-Scrivener 2017-10

This book teaches business ethics in a manner very different from the philosophical and legal frameworks that dominate graduate schools. The book offers twenty-eight case studies and nine essays that cover a full range of business practice, controls and ethics issues. The essays discuss the nature of sound financial controls, root causes of the Financial Crisis, and the evolving nature of whistleblower protections. The cases are framed to instruct students in early identification of ethics problems and how to work such issues within corporate organizations. They also provide would-be whistleblowers with instruction on the challenges they’d face, plus information on the legal protections, and outside supports available should they embark on that course. Some of the cases illustrate how ‘The Young are the Most Vulnerable,’ i.e. short service employees are most at risk of being sacrificed by an unethical firm. Other cases show the ethical dilemmas facing well-known CEOs and the alternatives they can employ to better combine ethical conduct and sound business strategy. Through these case studies, students should emerge with a practical toolkit that better enables them to follow their moral compass. Finally, the cases provide an in depth look at how a corporation becomes progressively corrupted (Enron), how the Financial Crisis was rooted in ethical decay at institutions as diverse as Countrywide, Goldman Sacks, Citigroup, Fannie Mae and Moody’s, and at the ethical challenges that persist in the post-Crisis, post-Dodd-Frank environment.

About the author: Stephen V. Arbogast is Professor of Practice of Finance and Director of the Energy Center at the Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

匡特家族:

"德国制造"幕后的传奇缔造者
卢蒂格 荣布卢特著; 丁树玺译 中译出版社 2018-1

宝马、奔驰、阿尔塔纳化学品集团、生产毛瑟步枪的德意志武器和弹药厂、瓦尔塔电池公司……这些光芒炫目的“德国制造”背后,都闪烁着一个家族的身影——匡特家族。匡特家族是世界上*富有的家族之一,在公众视野中却近乎“隐形”。家族成员保持着从19世纪中叶沿袭下来的家族传统——谦逊、低调、自信与坚忍,从不使用家族姓氏作为产品商标或企业名称,也鲜少在媒体上曝光,却是名至实归的“德国女首富”“德国前十大富豪”,并且多位名列“福布斯全球富豪榜”。《匡特家族》讲述匡特家族从18世纪迁往勃兰登堡直至今天的历史。第一代是创始者,埃米尔·匡特从勃兰登堡的一家纺织厂发家。第二代是发展者,金特·匡特拥有商业天赋,能准确地预测市场趋势并擅长与政府打交道。第三代是创新者,两大家族分支分割家族资产,选择了不同的传承模式。今天,匡特家族的第四代成员已经登上历史舞台,其中德国女首富、宝马大股东苏珊娜·克拉滕和斯蒂芬·匡特最受瞩目,在21世纪续写着家族传奇。

荣格自传:

回忆, 梦与思考

荣格说,人的一生是一个毫无把握的实验——到头来,我这一辈子仅有的值得一提的事情,竟是那些从永恒之境闯入了短暂之界的刹那。在《回忆、梦与思考:荣格自传》中,荣格所讲的主要是内在经验——他的梦和幻象。这些内在事件塑造了荣格奇特而多彩的一生,也构成了这部自传的主要内容。正是借助梦、回忆、幻象、炼金术以及各种深刻的沉思,得益于从内在事件的角度去认识自我的思考方式,荣格才最终完成了自性化道路,找到了本命所归。对于一直在探寻活着的意义的现代人来说,踏上荣格的自我发现之旅,也许会让我们产生一种豁然开朗、孤独尽去的体验,帮助我们找到自己独特的人生价值和生而为人的意义。

作者简介:荣格(C.G.Jung),瑞士心理学家、精神分析医师和分析心理学的创立者。早年曾与弗洛伊德合作,后来由于两人观点不同而决裂。他提出了“情结”的概念以及内倾和外倾两种心理类型的理论,主张把人格分为意识、个人无意识和集体无意识三层。作为人类历史上最杰出的心理学家之一,荣格的著述极为丰富,主要内容以精神分析为主,同时涉及文学、历史、神学、宗教、人类学、文化学等诸多方面,代表作品有《荣格自传》《心理类型》《分析心理学》《原型与集体无意识》等。

Economics

The end of theory:

financial crises, the failure of economics, and the sweep of human interaction
Call Number: 330.019/B724/2017
Richard Bookstaber Princeton University Press 2017-5

Our economy may have recovered from the Great Recession—but not our economics. In The End of Theory, Richard Bookstaber discusses why the human condition and the radical uncertainty of our world renders the standard economic model—and the theory behind it—useless for dealing with financial crises. What model should replace it? None. At least not any version we've been using for the past two hundred years. Instead, Bookstaber argues for a new approach called agent-based economics, one that takes as a starting point the fact that we are humans, not the optimizing automatons that standard economics assumes we are.

Bookstaber's groundbreaking paradigm promises to do a far better job at preventing crises and managing those that break out. As he explains, our varied memories and imaginations color our economic behavior in unexpected hues. Agent-based modeling embraces these nuances by avoiding the mechanistic, unrealistic structure of our current economic approach. Bookstaber tackles issues such as radical uncertainty, when circumstances take place beyond our anticipation, and emergence, when innocent, everyday interactions combine to create sudden chaos. Starting with the realization that future crises cannot be predicted by the past, he proposes an approach that recognizes the human narrative while addressing market realities.

Sweeping aside the historic failure of twentieth-century economics, The End of Theory offers a novel and innovative perspective, along with a more realistic and human framework, to help prevent today's financial system from blowing up again.

When things don't fall apart:

global financial governance and developmental financial in an age of productive incoherence
Call Number: 332.042/G727/2017
Ilene Grabel, Foreword by Dani Rodrik MIT Press 2018-1

In this book, Ilene Grabel challenges the dominant view that the global financial crisis had little effect on global financial governance and developmental finance. Most observers discount all but grand, systemic ruptures in institutions and policy. Grabel argues instead that the global crisis induced inconsistent and ad hoc discontinuities in global financial governance and developmental finance that are now having profound effects on emerging market and developing economies. Grabel's chief normative claim is that the resulting incoherence in global financial governance is productive rather than debilitating. In the age of productive incoherence, a more complex, dense, fragmented, and pluripolar form of global financial governance is expanding possibilities for policy and institutional experimentation, policy space for economic and human development, financial stability and resilience, and financial inclusion. Grabel draws on key theoretical commitments of Albert Hirschman to cement the case for the productivity of incoherence. Inspired by Hirschman, Grabel demonstrates that meaningful change often emerges from disconnected, erratic, experimental, and inconsistent adjustments in institutions and policies as actors pragmatically manage in an evolving world.

Grabel substantiates her claims with empirically rich case studies that explore the effects of recent crises on networks of financial governance (such as the G-20); transformations within the IMF; institutional innovations in liquidity support and project finance from the national to the transregional levels; and the “rebranding” of capital controls. Grabel concludes with a careful examination of the opportunities and risks associated with the evolutionary transformations underway.

It enables a team, a unit, or an enterprise to nimbly adapt and upgrade products and services to meet rapidly changing technology and customer needs.

Filled with examples from every sector, this book helps readers to master the three laws of agile management (team, customer, network), embrace the new mindset, overcome constraints, employ meaningful metrics, and make the entire organization agile.

Team creativity and innovation

Call Number: 658.4022/T253/2018
Edited by Roni Reiter-Palmon Oxford University Press 2017-12

For the past two decades, creativity and innovation have been viewed by researchers as critical to organizational success and survival. Understanding the factors that facilitate or inhibit creativity and innovation at the individual level has been the focus of much of the research in this area. However, while earlier work on teams considered the working dynamics of the group as a context variable with individual creativity the outcome, research now emphasizes group creativity as the intended, desired outcome. This shift in thought has occurred because many of the problems routinely facing organizations are complex and cannot be solved by a single individual at the helm.

Edited by Roni Reiter-Palmon, Team Creativity and Innovation provides readers with a state-of-the-art review of the major concepts and current research related to the demonstrable benefits of team creativity and innovation. In this volume, Reiter-Palmon and contributors explore such topics as team collaboration and communication, trust and psychological safety, team diversity, social networks, conflict, organizational learning, and more as a way to introduce readers to the issues that matter most in today's modern, forward-thinking workplace.

If you're in a dogfight, become a cat! strategies for long-term growth

Call Number: 658.4012/S553/2017
Leonard Sherman Columbia University Press 2017-1

This book explains how businesses such as Yellow Tail survive and thrive in industries embroiled in “dogfights”—intense competition among established companies for a small piece of the market. FedEx, Apple, Southwest Airlines, and Starbucks have thrived as cats by differentiating their businesses, aligning their goals and practices, and continuously innovating their products. Rather than compete head-on with other PC manufacturers, Apple introduced a new category of tablet devices to unlock latent demand for mobile computing. Yellow Tail turned beer- and liquor-lovers on to casual, inexpensive, drinkable wines through youthful packaging. In this book, managers of companies big and small encounter dozens of model strategies for product design and forward-thinking organization that have resulted in real long-term, profitable growth. The author, Leonard Sherman, a longtime business consultant and faculty member at Columbia Business School, has developed a three-part strategy based on years of consulting for such companies as Audi, Toyota, and United Technologies. His advice: compete on different terms to attract new customers.

Psychology

A brain for business-- a brain for life:

how insights from behavioural and brain science can change business and business practice for the better
Call Number: 158.7/O547/2018
Shane O'Mara Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan 2017-10

The brain matters in business. The problem is that our brains have many biases, heuristics and predilections that can distort behaviour and decision making. The good news is that we know more about how these work than ever before.

Behaviour change is hard, but O’Mara shows that by adopting strategies that are well-founded in the science of brain and behaviour individuals and organisations can adapt to the demands of the modern world. O’Mara’s starting point is that, as our behaviour arises from the structure and function of our brains, careful examination of a series of brain–based (‘neurocognitive’) analyses of common aspects of human behaviour relevant to business and management practice reveals lessons that can be used at work.

He begins by looking at neuroplasticity and how it is enables a shift from a restrictive ‘fixed mindset’ to an enabling ‘growth mindset’. He shows how this changing mindset approach – where the focus is on task and improvements based on effort – is scalable within organizations. Next, as the brain is a living organ like the heart and lungs, O’Mara shows how to keep it physically in the best possible shape before examining how we exercise control over our behaviour, build resilience and create positive brain states. He also considers the implications for business of our brains wiring for status and illustrates how research shows that it is possible to de-bias assumptions about gender and race – and the impact that this has on performance.

About the author: Shane O’Mara is Professor of Experimental Brain Research and a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator at Trinity College Dublin.

The ethical practice of consulting psychology

Call Number: 158.7/L918/2018
Rodney L. Lowman and Stewart E. Cooper American Psychological Association 2017-10

This volume provides an overview of these issues for consulting psychologists, graduate students, and practitioners in other fields who want to transition to organizational consulting. Using the APA Ethics Code as its foundation, the book teaches readers how to make ethical decisions when conducting assessments and applying interventions with individual employees, work groups, and entire organizations, small and large.

Authors Rodney Lowman and Stewart Cooper explore common themes in ethical practice, including informed consent, confidentiality, multiple relationships, conflicts of interest, and competence. They demonstrate how these issues manifest differently in the work environment through vivid case examples that bring to life the concrete work of consulting psychologists. These informative vignettes teach readers how to negotiate complex challenges, such as when organizational demands and corrupt business practices come into conflict with psychologists’ ethical responsibilities. Special attention is also given to emerging areas of practice, including telepsychology, multinational and multicultural consulting, and coaching.

The net and the butterfly:

the art and practice of breakthrough thinking
Call Number: 153.35/C112/2017
Olivia Fox Cabane and Judah Pollack Portfolio/Penguin 2017-3

The creative mode in your brain is like a butterfly. It's beautiful and erratic, hard to catch and highly valued as a result. If you want to capture it, you need a net. Enter the executive mode, the task-oriented network in your brain that help you tie your shoes, run a meeting, or pitch a client. To succeed, you need both modes to work together--your inner butterfly to be active and free, but your inner net to be ready to spring at the right time and create that "aha!" moment. But is there any way to trigger these insights, beyond dumb luck?

Thanks to recent neuroscience discoveries, we can now explain these breakthrough moments--and also induce them through a series of specific practices. It turns out there's a hidden pattern to all these seemingly random breakthrough ideas. From Achimedes' iconic moment in the bathtub to designer Adam Cheyer's idea for Siri, accidental breakthroughs throughout history share a common origin story. In this book, you will learn to master the skills that will transform your brain into a consistent generator of insights.

Drawing on their extensive coaching and training practice with top Silicon Valley firms, Cabane and Pollack provide a step-by-step process for accessing the part of the brain that produces breakthroughs and systematically removing internal blocks.

Politics

Governing hybrid organisations

exploring diversity of institutional life
Call Number: 658.046/J652/2018
Jan-Erik Johanson and Jarmo Vakkuri Routledge 2017-8

Intuitively, organisations can easily be categorised as ‘public’ or ‘private’. However, this book questions such a black and white dichotomy between public and private, and seeks a deeper understanding of hybrid organisations. These organisations can be found at micro, meso and macro levels of societal activity, consisting of networks between companies, public agencies and other entities. The line between these two realms is increasingly blurred ― giving rise to hybrid organizations.

This book presents an engaging discussion around hybrid organisations, highlighting them as important and fascinating examples of modern institutional diversity. Chapters examine the changing landscape of service delivery and the nature and governance of hybrid organisations, using international examples and cases from different service contexts. The authors put forward a clear analytical framework for understanding hybrid governance, looking at strategy and performance management.

Culture

The sum of small things:

a theory of the aspirational class
Elizabeth Currid-Halkett Princeton University Press 2017-5

In today’s world, the leisure class has been replaced by a new elite. Highly educated and defined by cultural capital rather than income bracket, these individuals earnestly buy organic, carry NPR tote bags, and breast-feed their babies. They care about discreet, inconspicuous consumption―like eating free-range chicken and heirloom tomatoes, wearing organic cotton shirts and TOMS shoes, and listening to the Serial podcast. They use their purchasing power to hire nannies and housekeepers, to cultivate their children’s growth, and to practice yoga and Pilates. In The Sum of Small Things, Elizabeth Currid-Halkett dubs this segment of society “the aspirational class” and discusses how, through deft decisions about education, health, parenting, and retirement, the aspirational class reproduces wealth and upward mobility, deepening the ever-wider class divide.

Exploring the rise of the aspirational class, Currid-Halkett considers how much has changed since the 1899 publication of Thorstein Veblen’s Theory of the Leisure Class. In that inflammatory classic, which coined the phrase “conspicuous consumption,” Veblen described upper-class frivolities: men who used walking sticks for show, and women who bought silver flatware despite the effectiveness of cheaper aluminum utensils. Now, Currid-Halkett argues, the power of material goods as symbols of social position has diminished due to their accessibility. As a result, the aspirational class has altered its consumer habits away from overt materialism to more subtle expenditures that reveal status and knowledge. And these transformations influence how we all make choices.

With a rich narrative and extensive interviews and research, The Sum of Small Things illustrates how cultural capital leads to lifestyle shifts and what this forecasts, not just for the aspirational class but for everyone.

Manufacturing

Advanced manufacturing:

the new American innovation policies
William B. Bonvillian and Peter L. Singer MIT Press 2018-1

The United States lost almost one-third of its manufacturing jobs between 2000 and 2010. As higher-paying manufacturing jobs are replaced by lower-paying service jobs, income inequality has been approaching third world levels. In particular, between 1990 and 2013, the median income of men without high school diplomas fell by an astonishing 20% between 1990 and 2013, and that of men with high school diplomas or some college fell by a painful 13%. Innovation has been left largely to software and IT startups, and increasingly U.S. firms operate on a system of “innovate here/produce there,” leaving the manufacturing sector behind. In this book, William Bonvillian and Peter Singer explore how to rethink innovation and revitalize America's declining manufacturing sector. They argue that advanced manufacturing, which employs such innovative technologies as 3-D printing, advanced material, photonics, and robotics in the production process, is the key.

Bonvillian and Singer discuss transformative new production paradigms that could drive up efficiency and drive down costs, describe the new processes and business models that must accompany them, and explore alternative funding methods for startups that must manufacture. They examine the varied attitudes of mainstream economics toward manufacturing, the post-Great Recession policy focus on advanced manufacturing, and lessons from the new advanced manufacturing institutes. They consider the problem of “startup scaleup,” possible new models for training workers, and the role of manufacturing in addressing “secular stagnation” in innovation, growth, the middle classes, productivity rates, and related investment. As recent political turmoil shows, the stakes could not be higher.

语言与制序:

经济学的语言与制度的语言之维
Call Number: 330.1/W521/2014
韦森著 商务印书馆 2014-9

本书为“当代中国经济学人”系列丛书之“韦森作品系列”之四。作者把自己近年来从语言哲学的视角反思经济学,尤其是社会制度的经济分析的一些探索 整理成册,梳理自己对这一领域研究的认识。

通过阅读本书,读者可以梳理出语言与制序的关系和相互作用机制:(1)正是因为人具有内在语法或者说内化语言,人才有自在行为和自由行动中一致性,因而人作为人的语言官能中初始状态本身就意味着人是遵从规则的动物——也因而人的行为是自由的,但不是“自然的”和任意的。(2)正是因为人作为人有共同的先天语言结构和心智中原初状态上的一致性,人与人才能进行社会博弈,才能互相沟通和理解,才会在博弈和相互反应中生成种种生活形式即我所理解的种种制序。(3)正是因为有了内化语言以及外化语言,以及在外化语言中有从内化语言中内含的先天生成语法转化而来的外在语法(表层语法),人们才能用之建构或界定规则,尤其是调节性规则,主要是通过符合外在语法的语言和语句编织或者说“建构”起来。秩序只有在语言中才成为规则,或者更确切地说,只有由语言所界定和规定的秩序才称为“规则”,因而所有制序实在均与语言密切相关,或者说是一个语言现象,或与语言这种“元制序”密不可分。

未来董事会

(西)佩德罗 雷诺著; 李琦译 中国财富出版社 2017-7

本书介绍了企业在未来几年内将面临的最为迫切的变化,也解释了董事会应以怎样的方式来运作,才能在快节奏、动荡的商业市场中保持必要的敏捷性。

科技的发展、企业经营环境的变化,各国经营法律的变化,需要董事会的董事们具备前瞻性视野和准确的战略把握能力。如何投资、何时引入新技术、如何进行战略选择,都是他们面对的难题和责任;同时公司外部环境的深入变革都要求对公司治理进行一场深刻的思考。作者认为,未来的董事会需要在各领域做得更专业,以期能够有能力进行综合评估,来保证履行其职责。为此,公司有必要对董事会组成的组织架构、成员构成、任职时间和董事报酬进行深入的评估。在本书中,你将会找到改进董事会过程的基础理论和实用指南,使用实际的案例分析来加强理解这一过程中的关键问题。

Economics

Completing Capitalism:

Heal Business to Heal the World
Call Number: 330.122/R673/2017
Bruno Roche, Jay Jakub Barrett-Koehler Publishers 2017-5

For the past fifty years, leaders in the business world have believed that their sole responsibility is to maximize profit for shareholders. But this obsessive focus was a major cause of the abuses that nearly sunk the global economy in 2008. In this analytically rigorous and eminently practical book, Bruno Roche and Jay Jakub offer a more complete form of capitalism, one that delivers superior financial performance precisely because it mobilizes and generates human, social, and natural capital along with financial capital. They describe how the model has been implemented in live business pilots in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. Recent high-profile books like Capital in the Twenty-First Century have exposed financial capitalism's shortcomings, but this book goes far beyond by describing a well-developed, field-tested alternative.

Financing Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Markets

Call Number: 338.04/C335/2018
Lourdes Casanova, Peter Klaus Cornelius, Soumitra Dutta Academic Press 2017-11

This book offers an original perspective on the links between macro data on innovation, data on micro-entrepreneurial processes and venture capital supply. The authors synthesize two disparate fields of research and thinking―innovation and entrepreneurship and economics―to illuminate how domestic companies compete and the business environment in which entrepreneurial firms operate. Its broad scope and firm linkages between processes at different levels leapfrogs research topics. For those investigating entrepreneurship and innovation in the early stages of economic development, this book demonstrates how micro and macro foundations of productivity, and hence economic growth and development, are inextricably intertwined.

Strategy beyond the hockey stick:

people, probabilities, and big moves to beat the odds
Call Number: 658.4012/B811/2018
Chris Bradley, Martin Hirt, Sven Smit John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2018-2

Mining the data from thousands of large companies, McKinsey Partners Chris Bradley, Martin Hirt and Sven Smit open the windows of that room, and bring an “outside view.” They found three discrete groups of companies: the bottom quintile with massive economic losses; the long, flat, middle 60 percent with practically no economic profit; and the top 20 percent to whom all the value accrues.

Some companies do achieve real hockey stick performance: but just 1-in-12 jump from the middle tier to the top over a ten year period. This does not happen by magic—there is an empirically-backed science to improve your odds of success by capitalizing on your endowment, riding the right trends, and most importantly, making a few big moves.

To make these big moves happen, you’re going to have to break through inertia, gamesmanship and risk aversion. You’re going to have to mitigate human biases and manage group dynamics. Eight practical shifts can help you do this, and unlock bigger, bolder, better strategies.

Call Number: 330.1/S356=1/2017
(德)古斯塔夫 冯 施穆勒著; 黎岗译 商务印书馆 2017-11

本书是德国新历史学派经济学领袖古斯塔夫·冯·施穆勒的重要著作之一,它系统而扼要地阐述了施穆勒的方法论体系。 经济学方法论可能是施穆勒留给我们的最重要的学术遗产。他一方面反对古典经济学试图从几个简单的前提推导出永恒有效的“经济定律”的做法,另一方面提倡运用归纳方法和跨学科工具,对经验事实进行广泛渗入的研究,认为只有这样做才能总结出经济活动的规律性。另外,他否认自由放任的市场能够自动提高整个社会的福利,认为经济学家有责任在道德理想的指引下,探索和建设更高级、更美好的社会经济制度。 在经济政策领域,施穆勒及其同仁最大的功绩是促使俾斯麦政府建立了世界上第一个社会福利系统,为工人阶级提供医疗、养老等最低限度的保障;在学术领域,施穆勒等一批德国经济学家使德国经济学的世界影响力达到了顶峰。 施穆勒提出的研究范式是一个意义重大的社会、经济分析框架,相对于主流经济学,它很可能是最具潜力的替代和补充方案。

不论是用手机打电话还是用WiFi 上网,都需要分享网络媒介。就像空气一样,你需要和许多其他人共享。在这种情况下,怎么可能不干扰彼此的连接呢?今天的许多网站都需要处理大量原始数据,以找到有效的排序方法。像谷歌这样的搜索引擎如何对呈现给我们的结果进行排序?亚马逊和网飞(Netflix)等在线零售及娱乐公司拥有很多顾客。网站如何为广告商分配空间?我们是否能够对大众的意见产生影响,使产品评价及推荐更加准确和有用?为何有些视频会出现病毒式传播?在社交网络中,某些人是否比其他人更具影响力?

通过简单的语言、类比、故事以及数百幅插图,两位专家通俗易懂地解答了这些问题,描述了网络的核心理念。Alphabet董事长埃里克•施密特,威瑞森无线前首席执行官丹尼斯•斯特里格尔,以及“互联网之父”温顿·瑟夫和罗伯特·卡恩也在本书中分享了他们宝贵的见解。

Call Number: 658/B959=1/2017
(美)戴维 布尔库什著; 赵竞欧译 中信出版集团 2017-7

美国在线DVD租赁商网飞(Netflix)为什么鼓励员工随心所欲地休假? 全球领先的信息技术服务商源讯公司(Atos SE)为什么禁止公司员工使用电子邮件? 给每一位中途离职的员工提供奖金,亚马逊子公司Zappos和它的创始人谢家华是不是疯了? 很多公司明文禁止员工谈论工资,为什么全食超市(Whole Foods)却推行薪资透明化管理? 谁说招聘仅仅是HR的工作?为什么全员参与招聘,反倒让谷歌找到了更适合的人才? 在《新管理革命》一书中,享有国际盛誉的奥罗尔罗伯茨大学商学院教授戴维•布尔库什博士系统研究了全世界范围内上千家高速成长型公司,对上述问题做出了回答。他的研究结果一公布就引发热议,因为极具颠覆性而震惊了整个管理界。 他认为,当工作的本质从工业型转变到知识型,当公司需要员工解决问题和设计新产品,新型管理系统应该以员工为中心。伟大的领导者一直关注于这项原则并重新改造工厂以最大化所需效率。在这场新管理革命中,这些公司都找到了更高效的运行方法。这些挑战思维定式的人就是工厂创新者:他们正在打造一个更好的发动机。结果就是更优秀的公司以及更出色的管理。 在《新管理革命》中,布尔库什博士系统总结了知识经济时代的13项全新的管理法则,这些法则的核心是:坚持员工第一,顾客第二,通过提升员工幸福感达到提高客户满意度;取消管理层,把管理者的职责下放到曾经的被管理者身上;对招聘过程进行重组和革命,让员工参与招聘的过程;取消年度绩效考评,鼓励季度反馈讨论等。

廉价的代价:

资本主义, 自然与星球的未来
Call Number: 303.44/P295=1/2018
(美)拉杰 帕特尔, 詹森 W. 摩尔著; 吴文忠, 何芳, 赵世忠译 中信出版集团 2018-3

作者运用前沿的生态学研究、西方列强殖民史、原住民斗争史和其他被压迫人群的反抗史,阐明资本主义正是通过廉价战略——使自然、货币、劳动、关怀、食物、能源和生命保持廉价——才造成了当今世界的现状及资本主义即将灭亡的趋势。

这是一本让人耳目一新的、再认识资本主义的伟大著作。跟其他同类书相比,本书的独特性在于作者主张从 “世界-生态”理论的视角下去理解资本主义。该理论主张用生命网络(web of life)的方式思考人类历史,研究权力、生产和再生产是如何通过生命网络实现的。作者认为资本主义是集权力、资本和自然界于一体的各种关系的集合,资本主义在追求无穷无尽积累的驱动下,通过不断开辟新边疆而实现全球扩张。新边疆是资本与自然界的交汇区,正是在一个一个新边疆,资本主义国家运用暴力、文化、知识确保廉价战略得以贯彻,才获得巨大的市场。

Economics

Tomorrow 3.0:

transaction costs and the sharing economy
Call Number: 338.51/M966/2018
Michael C. Munger Cambridge University Press 2018-3

With the growing popularity of apps such as Uber and Airbnb, there has been a keen interest in the rise of the sharing economy. Michael C. Munger brings these new trends in the economy down to earth by focusing on their relation to the fundamental economic concept of transaction costs. In doing so Munger brings a fresh perspective on the 'sharing economy' in clear and engaging writing that is accessible to both general and specialist readers. He shows how, for the first time, entrepreneurs can sell reductions in transaction costs, rather than reductions in the costs of the products themselves. He predicts that smartphones will be used to commodify excess capacity, and reaches the controversial conclusion that a basic income will be required as a consequence of this new 'transaction costs revolution'.

Sport entrepreneurship:

developing and sustaining an entrepreneurial sports culture
Call Number: 658.421/R237/2018
Vanessa Ratten Springer 2018-2

This book introduces the structure, economic arguments, and business strategies for entrepreneurship in sport. Here, the entrepreneurial process is usually initiated by organizations, people or governments who are embedded in both economic and social contexts. The development of technologies that have enhanced the diffusion of information and the creation of new international markets has impacted sports entrepreneurship activities.

The goal of this book is to introduce readers to emerging issues in sport entrepreneurship and management. The book focuses on the role of entrepreneurship in the sports context by examining how to leverage the opportunities that arise from networks and optimize resources by identifying where they can most effectively be put to use. As a unique discipline, sport entrepreneurship helps to identify the conditions under which and the processes in which upcoming business ventures need to be pursued.

Meltdown:

why our systems fail and what we can do about it
Call Number: 158.1/C623/2018
Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik Penguin Press 2018-3

A crash on the Washington, D.C. metro system. An accidental overdose in a state-of-the-art hospital. An overcooked holiday meal. At first glance, these disasters seem to have little in common. But surprising new research shows that all these events--and the myriad failures that dominate headlines every day--share similar causes. By understanding what lies behind these failures, we can design better systems, make our teams more productive, and transform how we make decisions at work and at home.

Weaving together cutting-edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the frontlines of the Volkswagen scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest, Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik explain how the increasing complexity of our systems creates conditions ripe for failure and why our brains and teams can't keep up. They highlight the paradox of progress: Though modern systems have given us new capabilities, they've become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns--and even to corruption and misconduct.

But Meltdown isn't just about failure; it's about solutions--whether you're managing a team or the chaos of your family's morning routine. It reveals why ugly designs make us safer, how a five-minute exercise can prevent billion-dollar catastrophes, why teams with fewer experts are better at managing risk, and why diversity is one of our best safeguards against failure. The result is an eye-opening, empowering, and entirely original book--one that will change the way you see our complex world and your own place in it.

Politics

Class attitudes in America:

sympathy for the poor, resentment of the rich, and political implications
Call Number: 305.50973/P679/2018
Spencer Piston Cambridge University Press 2018-4

This book explains a long-standing puzzle in American politics: why so many Americans support downwardly redistributive social welfare programs, when such support seems to fly in the face of standard conceptions of the American public as anti-government, individualistic, and racially prejudiced. Bringing class attitudes into the analysis, Spencer Piston demonstrates through rigorous empirical analysis that sympathy for the poor and resentment of the rich explain American support for downwardly redistributive programs - not only those that benefit the middle class, but also those that explicitly target the poor. The book captures an important and neglected component of citizen attitudes toward a host of major public policies and candidate evaluations. It also explains why government does so little to combat economic inequality; in key instances, political elites downplay class considerations, deactivating sympathy for the poor and resentment of the rich.

Computer Science

Big data:

a very short introduction
Call Number: 005.7/H749/2017
Dawn E. Holmes Oxford University Press 2018-1

"Big Data" represents a qualitative change, not simply a quantitative one. The term refers both to the new technologies involved, and to the way it can be used by business and government. Dawn E. Holmes uses a variety of case studies to explain how data is stored, analyzed, and exploited by a variety of bodies from big companies to organizations concerned with disease control. Big data is transforming the way businesses operate, and the way medical research can be carried out. At the same time, it raises important ethical issues; Holmes discusses cases such as the Snowden affair, data security, and domestic smart devices which can be hijacked by hackers.

Enlightenment now:

a manifesto for science, reason, humanism, and progress
Call Number: 306/P655/2018
Steven Pinker Allen Lane 2018-2

We're living longer, healthier, safer and more affluent lives-not just in the West, but worldwide. Why? In Enlightenment Now, Pinker proposes that human progress is the gift of a coherent value system that many of us embrace without even knowing it. The values of the Enlightenment underlie all our modern institutions and deserve credit for the stupendous progress we have made. The progress we have enjoyed is not, of course, an excuse for complacency: Some of the challenges we face today are unprecedented in their complexity and scope. The way to deal with these challenges, Pinker argues, is to treat them as problems to solve, as we have solved other problems in our past. Putting the case for an Enlightenment newly recharged for the 21st century, Pinker shows how, by using our faculties of reason and sympathy to understand the world and to enhance human flourishing, we can tackle problems that inevitably come with being products of evolution in an entropic universe.

The business blockchain: promise, practice, and application of the next Internet technology

Call Number: 332.178/M925/2016
William Mougayar John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2016-5

Blockchains are new technology layers that rewire the Internet and threaten to side-step older legacy constructs and centrally served businesses. At its core, a blockchain injects trust into the network, cutting off some intermediaries from serving that function and creatively disrupting how they operate. Metaphorically, blockchains are the ultimate non-stop computers. Once launched, they never go down, and offer an incredible amount of resiliency, making them dependable and attractive for running a new generation of decentralized services and software applications.

The Business Blockchain charts new territory in advancing our understanding of the blockchain by unpacking its elements like no other before. William Mougayar anticipates a future that consists of thousands, if not millions of blockchains that will enable not only frictionless value exchange, but also a new flow of value, redefining roles, relationships, power and governance. In this book, Mougayar makes two other strategic assertions. First, the blockchain has polymorphic characteristics; its application will result in a multiplicity of effects. Second, we shouldn’t ask ourselves what problems the blockchain solves, because that gives us a narrow view on its potential. Rather, we should imagine new opportunities, and tackle even more ambitious problems that cross organizational, regulatory and mental boundaries.

Drawing on 34 years of technology industry experience as an executive, analyst, consultant, entrepreneur, startup mentor, author, blogger, educator, thought leader and investor, William Mougayar describes a future that is influenced by fundamental shifts brought by blockchain technology as the catalyst for change. William Mougayar has been described as the most sophisticated blockchain business thinker. He is a blockchain industry insider whose work has already shaped and influenced the understanding of blockchain for people around the world, via his generous blogging and rigorous research insights. He is a direct participant in the crypto-technology market, working alongside startups, entrepreneurs, pioneers, leaders, innovators, creators, enterprise executives and practitioners; in addition to being an investor, advisor, and board member in some of the leading organizations in this space, such as the Ethereum Foundation, OpenBazaar and Coin Center.

The money formula: dodgy finance, pseudo science, and how mathematicians took over the markets

Call Number: 332.64/W744/2017
Paul Wilmott, David Orrell. Wiley 2017-6

The Money Formula takes you inside the engine room of the global economy to explore the little-understood world of quantitative finance, and show how the future of our economy rests on the backs of this all-but-impenetrable industry. Written not from a post-crisis perspective – but from a preventative point of view – this book traces the development of financial derivatives from bonds to credit default swaps, and shows how mathematical formulas went beyond pricing to expand their use to the point where they dwarfed the real economy. You'll learn how the deadly allure of their ice-cold beauty has misled generations of economists and investors, and how continued reliance on these formulas can either assist future economic development, or send the global economy into the financial equivalent of a cardiac arrest.

Rather than rehash tales of post-crisis fallout, this book focuses on preventing the next one. By exploring the heart of the shadow economy, you'll be better prepared to ride the rough waves of finance into the turbulent future.

● Delve into one of the world's least-understood but highest-impact industries

● Understand the key principles of quantitative finance and the evolution of the field

● Learn what quantitative finance has become, and how it affects us all

● Discover how the industry's next steps dictate the economy's future

Move: how decisive leaders execute strategy despite obstacles, setbacks, and stalls

Call Number: 658.4092/A999/2017
Patty Azzarello John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2017-2

Move is your guide to mobilizing your whole organization to take your business forward. Whatever your needed transformation may be: a new initiative, a new market, a new product, your fresh strategy is up against a powerful foe: an organization's tendency to stay very busy and completely engaged what it's already doing. This book shows you how to cut through resistance and get your team engaged and proactively doing the new thing! Author Patty Azzarello draws on over twenty-five years of international business management experience to identify the chronic challenges that keep organizations from decisively executing strategy, and to give you a practical game plan for breaking through. Leaders tend to assume that stalls in execution are inevitable, unchanging parts of the workplace—but things can change. At the heart of every execution problem is the fact that there simply are not enough people doing what the business needs. This guide shows you how to get your entire organization on board—remove the fear, excuses, and hurdles—and uphold the new pursuit against distractions and dissent.

No transformation can succeed without suitable engagement from the whole organization, but building engagement can be difficult, uncomfortable, and tentative. This book shows you how to get it done.

● Get your organization to embrace and personally commit to the new work

● Remove obstacles and passive aggressive attacks that block progress

● Defend new strategic initiatives against short term pressures to revert to "business as usual"

● Sustain momentum and the desire to move forward

● Make sure no one is ever asking, 'Are we still doing this?'

High velocity hiring: how to hire top talent in an instant

Call Number: 658.311/W794/2017
Scott Wintrip McGraw-Hill 2017-4

An employee leaves and you post the open position. Resumes trickle in. You interview a few candidates. No one fits the bill. The next thing you know, three months have passed and that desk is still empty . . .

Nothing drives business success like a staff of talented, productive employees. So why accept a hiring process that fails you time and time again?

Well, there’s one person who doesn’t: Scott Wintrip. And in High-Velocity Hiring, he provides the tools and systems for creating a hiring process designed for today’s fast-paced, talent-deficient landscape. Using the proven methods Wintrip has applied at some of today’s more forward-thinking companies, you’ll hire top employees faster―and smarter.

High-Velocity Hiring replaces the old, worn-out way of hiring with the simple but revolutionary approach of actively cultivating top talent before positions open. The old way is slow and inefficient. Wintrip’s way is dynamic and proven-effective. You’ll enrich and maintain a flow of high-quality candidates, harness this flow by identifying the most talented people, and channel it into a pool of ready-to-hire prospective employees.

In Kirkpatrick's Four Levels of Training Evaluation, discover a comprehensive blueprint for implementing the model in a way that truly maximizes your business's results.

The RBL Group and the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan have shaped much of the HR profession for 30 years through the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS).   With this latest (7th) round of research, Dave Ulrich, David Kryscynski, Mike Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank call for us to pivot from fighting the “war for talent”―to creating victory through organization.

● How to create more integrated HR solutions for business results across multiple stakeholders

● How HR departments can better create a comprehensive information advantage

● How HR professions can master the competencies that have greatest impact on their personal effectiveness, key inside and outside stakeholders, and business results

Call Number: 658.155/L213/2017

● Effectively addresses how to develop specific ERM tools

● Contains a significant number of case studies to help with practical implementation of an ERM program

许小年著 中国计划出版社 2017-8

著名经济学家许小年教授时隔六年重磅新作,强势指明中国经济改革未来方向。

目前中国经济进入了一个困难期,在思考解决方案之前,我们需要对中国经济的严峻现实有个清醒的认识。 

要想经济复苏,必须先化解凯恩斯模式所积累的种种风险,这个过程在时间上可能不会太短。在清理了债务、过剩产能和银行坏账后,需要回归改革开放前半段的中国模式,也就是亚当 斯密模式。国际上一些人以为中国模式就是大政府、强干预,这是误解,他们不清楚中国经济改革的路是怎么走过来的,一路上又发生过什么样的变化,他们也没有搞懂斯密模式和经济增长的关系,生搬主流的凯恩斯经济学理论,硬套在中国的经济现实上。 

我们需要独立思考,了解改革的历史,深入分析过去成功的原因和当前困难的根源,找到解决的方案。只要坚定不移地推动市场化改革,中国经济重回繁荣完全是可以预期的。

文艺复兴是想看见、想知道、想了解的欲望的爆发。

作家薄伽丘、彼得拉克、但丁、马尔西利奥・费奇诺、米兰多拉、伊拉斯谟在文学领域为人们留下了传世之作;画家达・芬奇、波提切利、多米尼科・基兰达约、卡巴乔、米开朗基罗的画作令人迷醉;建筑家布鲁内莱斯基、阿诺尔夫・迪・坎比奥、巴蒂斯塔・阿尔伯蒂留下的建筑如今游人如梭。文艺复兴是人的意志得到尊重、求知的星星之火聚集起来的一座灯塔,是每个寻找自身意义的人所向往的时代。

同时,文艺复兴时代反映了两个相互冲突的图景:一方面,这是一片等级森严,强调秩序和宗教的土地;另一方面,这也是一个堕入混乱与精神痛苦的世界。

波吉亚家族的切萨雷・波吉亚意图效法恺撒建功立业;美第奇家族的“豪华者”洛伦佐一时风光无限;腓特烈二世雄心壮志与教皇对抗,剑指东方;威尼斯以商人建国,缺少神佛庇佑却仍然绵延千年;一介草民马基雅维利,心中做的是陪伴君王,指点江山的大梦想……

如果我们还能从一百五十多年前莫奈的《日出》、梵高的《星空》中,依稀辨认出艺术“原来”的模样,那么,一百五十年后安迪·沃霍尔的金汤宝罐头、达米恩·赫斯特的腌制鲨鱼,还有翠西·艾敏乱糟糟的床,足以让我们看到艺术的其他可能。回顾现代艺术一个半世纪的反叛之路,我们见证了一代又一代人如何变得愈发反叛、大胆、混乱。这背后,是艺术家对“何为艺术”的无尽追问,是他们对周遭世界的回应与抵抗。现代艺术的故事仍在继续,也许永远不会完成。

艺术就像个游戏,你真正需要知道的只是它*基本的规则,从而让一度令人困惑的东西开始变得有意义。

Tap: unlocking the mobile economy

Call Number: 381.142/G427/2017
Anindya Ghose MIT Press 2017-4

Consumers create a data trail by tapping their phones; businesses can tap into this trail to harness the power of the more than three trillion dollar mobile economy. According to Anindya Ghose, a global authority on the mobile economy, this two-way exchange can benefit both customers and businesses. In Tap, Ghose welcomes us to the mobile economy of smartphones, smarter companies, and value-seeking consumers.

Drawing on his extensive research in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and on a variety of real-world examples from companies including Alibaba, China Mobile, Coke, Facebook, SK Telecom, Telefónica, and Travelocity, Ghose describes some intriguingly contradictory consumer behavior: people seek spontaneity, but they are predictable; they find advertising annoying, but they fear missing out; they value their privacy, but they increasingly use personal data as currency. When mobile advertising is done well, Ghose argues, the smartphone plays the role of a personal concierge -- a butler, not a stalker.

Ghose identifies nine forces that shape consumer behavior, including time, crowdedness, trajectory, and weather, and he examines these how these forces operate, separately and in combination. With Tap, he highlights the true influence mobile wields over shoppers, the behavioral and economic motivations behind that influence, and the lucrative opportunities it represents. In a world of artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, wearable technologies, smart homes, and the Internet of Things, the future of the mobile economy seems limitless.

Doughnut economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist

Call Number: 330/R261/2017
Kate Raworth Chelsea Green Publishing 2017-3

Economics is the mother tongue of public policy. It dominates our decision-making for the future, guides multi-billion-dollar investments, and shapes our responses to climate change, inequality, and other environmental and social challenges that define our times.

Pity then, or more like disaster, that its fundamental ideas are centuries out of date yet are still taught in college courses worldwide and still used to address critical issues in government and business alike.

That’s why it is time, says renegade economist Kate Raworth, to revise our economic thinking for the 21st century. In Doughnut Economics, she sets out seven key ways to fundamentally reframe our understanding of what economics is and does. Along the way, she points out how we can break our addiction to growth; redesign money, finance, and business to be in service to people; and create economies that are regenerative and distributive by design.

Named after the now-iconic “doughnut” image that Raworth first drew to depict a sweet spot of human prosperity (an image that appealed to the Occupy Movement, the United Nations, eco-activists, and business leaders alike), Doughnut Economics offers a radically new compass for guiding global development, government policy, and corporate strategy, and sets new standards for what economic success looks like.

Raworth handpicks the best emergent ideas―from ecological, behavioral, feminist, and institutional economics to complexity thinking and Earth-systems science―to address this question: How can we turn economies that need to grow, whether or not they make us thrive, into economies that make us thrive, whether or not they grow?

Simple, playful, and eloquent, Doughnut Economics offers game-changing analysis and inspiration for a new generation of economic thinkers.

Platform revolution: how networked markets are transforming the economy and how to make them work for you

Call Number: 658.872/P238/2016
Geoffrey G. Parker, Marshall W. Van Alstyne, et al. W. W. NORTON & COMPANY 2017-8

Uber. Airbnb. Amazon. Apple. PayPal. All of these companies disrupted their markets when they launched. Today they are industry leaders. What’s the secret to their success?

These cutting-edge businesses are built on platforms: two-sided markets that are revolutionizing the way we do business. Written by three of the most sought-after experts on platform businesses, Platform Revolution is the first authoritative, fact-based book on platform models. Whether platforms are connecting sellers and buyers, hosts and visitors, or drivers with people who need a ride, Geoffrey G. Parker, Marshall W. Van Alstyne, and Sangeet Paul Choudary reveal the what, how, and why of this revolution and provide the first “owner’s manual” for creating a successful platform business.

Platform Revolution teaches newcomers how to start and run a successful platform business, explaining ways to identify prime markets and monetize networks. Addressing current business leaders, the authors reveal strategies behind some of today’s up-and-coming platforms, such as Tinder and SkillShare, and explain how traditional companies can adapt in a changing marketplace. The authors also cover essential issues concerning security, regulation, and consumer trust, while examining markets that may be ripe for a platform revolution, including healthcare, education, and energy.

The upstarts: how Uber, Airbnb, and the killer companies of the new Silicon Valley are changing the world

Brad Stone Little, Brown and Company 2017-1

Ten years ago, the idea of getting into a stranger's car, or a walking into a stranger's home, would have seemed bizarre and dangerous, but today it's as common as ordering a book online. Uber and Airbnb have ushered in a new era: redefining neighborhoods, challenging the way governments regulate business, and changing the way we travel.

In the spirit of iconic Silicon Valley renegades like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, another generation of entrepreneurs is using technology to upend convention and disrupt entire industries. These are the upstarts, idiosyncratic founders with limitless drive and an abundance of self-confidence. Led by such visionaries as Travis Kalanick of Uber and Brian Chesky of Airbnb, they are rewriting the rules of business and often sidestepping serious ethical and legal obstacles in the process.

The Upstarts is the definitive story of two new titans of business and a dawning age of tenacity, conflict and wealth. In Brad Stone's riveting account of the most radical companies of the new Silicon Valley, we discover how it all happened and what it took to change the world.

The attention merchants: the epic scramble to get inside our heads

Call Number: 659.1042/W959/2016
Tim Wu Alfred A. Knopf 2017-9

Ours is often called an information economy, but at a moment when access to information is virtually unlimited, our attention has become the ultimate commodity. In nearly every moment of our waking lives, we face a barrage of efforts to harvest our attention.

This condition is not simply the byproduct of recent technological innovations but the result of more than a century's growth and expansion in the industries that feed on human attention. Wu’s narrative begins in the nineteenth century, when Benjamin Day discovered he could get rich selling newspapers for a penny. Since then, every new medium—from radio to television to Internet companies such as Google and Facebook—has attained commercial viability and immense riches by turning itself into an advertising platform. Since the early days, the basic business model of “attention merchants” has never changed: free diversion in exchange for a moment of your time, sold in turn to the highest-bidding advertiser. Full of lively, unexpected storytelling and piercing insight, The Attention Merchants lays bare the true nature of a ubiquitous reality we can no longer afford to accept at face value.

Reach: a new strategy to help you step outside your comfort zone, rise to the challenge, and build confidence

Call Number: 158.7/M723/2017
Andy Molinsky Avery 2017-1

What often sets successful people apart is their willingness to do things most of us fear. What’s more, we have the false notion that successful people like to do these things, when the truth is that successful people have simply found their own way to do them.

According to Andy Molinsky, an expert on behavior in the business world, there are five key challenges underlying our avoidance tendencies: authenticity, competence, resentment, likability, and morality. Does the new behavior you’re attempting feel authentic to you? Is it the right thing to do? Answering these questions will help identify the “gap” in our behavioral style that we can then bridge by using the three C’s: Clarity, Conviction, and Customization. Perhaps most interesting, Molinsky has discovered that many people who confront what they were avoiding come to realize that they actually enjoy it, and can even be good at it.

Short, prescriptive, and based not only on the author’s groundbreaking research but on his own quest to get out of his comfort zone, Reach will help you take the thing you are most afraid of doing and make it a proud part of your personal repertoire.

Hacking growth: how today's fastest-growing companies drive breakout success

Call Number: 658/E471/2017
Sean Ellis, Morgan Brown Crown Business 2017-4

It seems hard to believe today, but there was a time when Airbnb was the best-kept secret of travel hackers and couch surfers, Pinterest was a niche web site frequented only by bakers and crafters, LinkedIn was an exclusive network for C-suite executives and top-level recruiters, Facebook was MySpace’s sorry step-brother, and Uber was a scrappy upstart that didn’t stand a chance against the Goliath that was  New York City Yellow Cabs.

So how did these companies grow from these humble beginnings into the powerhouses they are today? Contrary to popular belief, they didn’t explode to massive worldwide popularity simply by building  a great product then crossing their fingers and hoping it would catch on. There was a studied, carefully implemented methodology behind these companies’ extraordinary rise. That methodology is called Growth Hacking, and it’s practitioners include not just today’s hottest start-ups, but also companies like IBM, Walmart, and Microsoft as well as the millions of entrepreneurs, marketers, managers and executives who make up the community of GrowthHackers.com.

Think of the Growth Hacking methodology as doing for market-share growth what Lean Start-Up did for product development, and Scrum did for productivity. It involves cross-functional teams and rapid-tempo testing and iteration that focuses customers: attaining them, retaining them, engaging them, and motivating them to come back and buy more.

An accessible and practical toolkit that teams and companies in all industries can use to increase their customer base and market share, this book walks readers through the process of creating and executing their own custom-made growth hacking strategy. It is a must read for any marketer, entrepreneur, innovator or manger looking to replace wasteful big bets and "spaghetti-on-the-wall" approaches with more consistent, replicable, cost-effective, and data-driven results.

Why simple wins: escape the complexity trap and get to work that matters

Call Number: 650.1/B666/2016
Lisa Bodell Bibliomotion 2016-10

Imagine what you could do with the time you spend writing emails every day.  Complexity is killing companies' ability to innovate and adapt, and simplicity is fast becoming the competitive advantage of our time. Why Simple Wins helps leaders and their teams move beyond the feelings of frustration and futility that come with so much unproductive work in today's corporate world to create a corporate culture where valuable, essential, meaningful work is the norm. By learning how to eliminate redundancies, communicate with clarity, and make simplification a habit, individuals and companies can begin to recognize which activities are time-sucks and which create lasting value.  Lisa Bodell's simplification method has several unique principles:  Simplification is a skill that's available to us all, yet very few leaders use it. Simplification is the right thing to do--for our customers, for our company, and for each other. Operating with simplification as our core business model will make it easier to be respectful of each other's time. Simplification drives culture, and culture in turn drives employee engagement, customer relations, and overall productivity.

This book is inspired by Bodell's passion for eliminating barriers to innovation and productivity. In it, she explains why change and innovation are so hard to achieve--and it's not what you might expect. The reality is this: we spend our days drowning in mundane tasks like meetings, emails, and reports. These are often self-created complexities that prevent us from getting to the meaningful work that truly matters.  Using simple stories and techniques, Why Simple Wins shows that by using simplicity as an operating principle, we can eliminate the busy work that puts a chokehold on us every day, and instead spend time on the work that we value.

Build your dream network: forging powerful relationships in a hyper-connected world

Call Number: 650.13/H696/2017
J. Kelly Hoey Tarcher Perigee 2017-1

If you think of networking as schmoozing at boring cocktail parties or scrolling through LinkedIn for new contacts to add, think again. In the social media age, you need a modern roadmap for creating and cultivating meaningful connections to stand out from the crowd and achieve any of your goals, no matter how big or small.

In Build Your Dream Network, acclaimed business columnist and networking expert J. Kelly Hoey offers a fresh new approach to mastering this timeworn skill in a world where everyone is posting, liking, and friending fast and furiously, but many are failing to leverage their connections successfully. Hoey presents innovative strategies for forming strong relationships—the genuine, mutually beneficial, long-lasting kind—using all of the social tools at your disposal. She also reveals creative and surprisingly simple ways to harness the power of your network to accomplish any ambition, from landing your dream job or a coveted account or client to successfully crowdfunding a new business venture. 

Good people: the only leadership decision that really matters

Call Number: 658.4092/T625/2017
Anthony Tjan Portfolio 2017-4

Leaders love to say that any company is only as good as its people, but tend to evaluate candidates and employees more by their measurable accomplishments than by their “softer” qualities, like integrity, compassion, and other values. Bestselling author Anthony Tjan is leading a movement to change the way we think about goodness so that we can become better judges of people and create more goodness in ourselves, in others, and in our organizations.

Tjan argues that while competence is necessary, real goodness must also encompass values; a fantastic résumé can never compensate for mediocre character. In Good People, he provides a clear language to discuss goodness, redefining it as a lifelong, proactive commitment that, like any skill, can be exercised, honed, and taught. When leaders prioritize goodness in themselves and in others, they can create lasting cultures and tremendous value.

Drawing from his own experiences as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Tjan also taps into the wisdom of his relationships and interviews with extraordinary innovators, executives, artists, academics, teachers, and role models from all disciplines and walks of life who embody his vision. The cases and profiles shared include: Harvard Business School Dean Nitin Nohria, who has called for balancing leadership of competency with leadership of character; Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who has never forgotten her roots and shows profound kindness to her staff and clerks;  Hollywood talent manager Shep Gordon, who has counseled his clients on the importance of generosity and gratitude; legendary venture capitalist Henry McCance, whose success proves that humbly ceding the spotlight to others makes room for their greatness; and master jazz musician Clark Terry, who devotedly mentored the young, blind pianist Justin Kauflin.

Brand vs. wild: building resilient brands for harsh business environments

Call Number: 658.827/L673/2017
Jonathan David Lewis Routledge 2017-5

Today’s business leaders operate in an increasingly harsh environment. Uncertainty in the economy causes paralysis. Quarterly goals drive short-term and shortsighted decisions. Workforce mobility kills loyalty. Iconic products decline as fast as start-ups create new categories. And the pressure to do more with less, combined with the multiplicity of available marketing tools and technology, can be overwhelming.

Now more than ever, brands and the people who lead them need clarity and guidance. The good news is that people have found ways to thrive in harsh environments for millennia. Author Jonathan David Lewis, combining the lessons of group survival dynamics with more than a decade of proprietary research into the factors that cause companies to lose their way, 

Outsmart your instincts: how the behavioral innovation approach drives your company forward

Call Number: 658.4012/H249/2017
Adam Hansen, Edward Harrington, and Beth Storz Forness Press 2017-1

"Just trust your gut" is great advice when your instincts tell you to run from a lion in the jungle. But when it comes to thinking innovatively about your business, those same instincts can be your own worst enemy. Cognitive biases—the instinctual mental shortcuts we all have in our brains that shape how we see and respond to the world around us—can also be the archnemeses of innovation/innovative thinking. New ideas appear too risky. Data gets discounted if it doesn't match the hypothesis of the researcher. And even like-minded innovation enthusiasts can find that enacting disruptive change is tough when they all see things the same way.
It's time to let go and learn a new way to think.

Created by innovation experts, Outsmart Your Instincts cleverly merges behavioral science with business savvy. Using the trademarked Behavioral Innovation™ model, the authors provide an in-depth examination of eight unique biases (Negativity, Confirmation, and Conformity among them) that get in the way of creativity/creative thinking—and show us how we can overcome these barriers and break from the status quo.

With clever, thought-provoking activities, accessible writing, and easy-to-follow advice, Outsmart Your Instincts shows us how and why we react to new ideas the way we do, and then—helps us rethink what-we-think. Once we learn to outsmart our own instincts, we can take on challenges as true innovators who rely on all of our brains' powers—not just our guts—and be equipped to outsmart the competition.

Upside: profiting from the profound demographic shifts ahead

Call Number: 658.83/G876/2017
Kenneth W. Gronbach, with M.J. Moye AMACOM 2017-4

Demographics not only define who we are, where we live, and how our numbers change, but--for those who can read beyond the raw figures--they open up hidden business opportunities that lie ahead.
What will happen when retiring Boomers free up jobs? How will Generation Y alter housing and transportation? Which states will have the most dynamic workforces? Will American manufacturing rebound as Asia's population boom stalls?

Upside puts this powerful yet little-understood science to work finding answers. Demographer Kenneth Gronbach synthesizes reams of data to show how generations impact markets and economies, and how to target promising trends.Lively and full of surprises, the book explains:

What each age cohort is likely to buy now and in coming decades - How profits dovetail with consumer numbers - What sectors are likely to grow or lag - How to make sense of the numbers to chart your own path - And more
As waves of people are born and age, fortunes and futures are determined. Whether you're an investor, marketer executive, or entrepreneur, Upside helps you spot the potential for profits in ever-shifting demographics.

大衰退: 宏观经济学的圣杯

The Holy Grail of macroeconomics: lessons from Japan's great recession
辜朝明 (Richard Koo)著; 喻海翔译 东方出版社 2016-12

1930年代的美国大萧条为何会那样严重和漫长?这是一个长期以来一直都困惑着经济学家们的问题。美国联邦储备委员会前主席本・伯南克甚至将美国大萧条称之为依旧无法触及的“宏观经济学圣杯”。但是1990年至2005年的日本大衰退通过证明在传统对策明显失效的同时,一个处于后泡沫期的经济体将会陷入长期衰退,最终为我们提供了一些决定性的线索。这本具有开拓性意义的著作不仅解明了美国大萧条与日本大衰退的根源,同时也为那些正在与后泡沫期经济衰退进行斗争的国家提供了重要的政策建议。

逆向管理: 先行动后思考

Act like a leader, think like a leader
埃米尼亚・伊贝拉著; 王臻译 北京联合出版公司 2016-7

为什么你浪费了很多时间,却做不出有效的决策?为什么计划制定得很好,实施起来却很困难?为什么你在管理岗位上无法获得进一步的晋升?如何处理好同上下级及客户的关系?如何让自己更有领袖气质,获得更多人的支持?如何像TED舞台上的演讲者一样用话语鼓舞他人?如何在工作陷入瓶颈时,及时突破自我重获新生?……

如果你想要知道这些问题的答案,那么你迫切需要阅读这本由全球50大管理思想家埃米尼亚•伊贝拉所著的《逆向管理:先行动后思考》。这本书突破了传统的“先思考,后行动”的旧思维,提出了全新的“先行动,后思考”的新理念。作者通过对来自联合利华、西门子等世界500强企业的各层管理者以及世界经济论坛领导者项目的参与者的深度采访与调查,向我们阐释了在持续性的个人发展过程中,外在表现比内在认知更重要的原因,并提出了一些实用且易操作的方法来提升个人领导力。

(日) 増田宗昭著; 王健波译 中信出版集团 2017-2

位于日本东京代官山的茑屋书店,被评为 “全球二十家最美书店之一”,已成为到访东京的许多游客必去的文化圣地。由原研哉担纲品牌设计的这座优美的“林中图书馆”,是其创始人增田宗昭三十年来横跨四大领域的不断创新的结晶。他突破经验的壁垒,以“人性的尺度”重新丈量企业 的经营活动,将“卖场”变成“生活方式提案店”,在实体书店举步维艰的今天,创造了一个梦幻般的存在。其实,茑屋书店只是增田宗昭庞大商业王国中的冰山一角。1985年,增田宗昭创立了CCC(Culture Convenience Club)公司,三十年来,在书店、图书馆、商业设施和家电四大领域发起创新经营,其中,CCC公司参与改造和管理的武雄市图书馆,一年内进馆人数突破一百万,成为当年日本举国热议的话题,而武雄市人口仅有五万人。

本书中,作者增田宗昭详细阐述了在这四大领域,尤其是茑屋书店和武雄市图书馆的创新过程。他提出的“人性尺度”、“顾客价值”和“生活方式提案”等理念,并认为从商业资本到“知”的资本,重新审视资本价值的时代已经到来。这对于各个行业实体店日渐凋敝的当下,具有很大的启发性。书中还收录了作者增田宗昭与武雄市市长樋渡启祐的对谈,商业资本与经营方式如何参与到城市文化基础设施建设中来,提高城市竞争力,对当下的城市发展也极具参考价值。

匠心老铺: 日本750家百年老店的繁盛秘诀

(日)前川洋一郎著; 陈晨译 人民邮电出版社 2017-1

当今商业竞争日益激烈,每年倒闭或消失的企业、公司、店铺不计其数,企业的平均寿命也越来越短。但在日本仍有不少百年老店虽历经沧桑却依然在为社会贡献其自身的价值。那么这些老铺是如何存留并获得持续发展的呢? 《匠心老铺:日本750家百年老店的繁盛秘诀》作者用八年时间走访了日本全国约750家百年老店,采访了其中371家老铺的高层写成此书。本书试图通过对这些百年老店的研究为读者揭开它们持久繁盛的秘诀,并将其统合成为一个完整的体系——“老铺学”。这种新的尝试,相信会成为同类中小企业的实战教材,成为更为简单明了传播经营学理论的桥梁。此外,《匠心老铺:日本750家百年老店的繁盛秘诀》还提出了经营老铺至关重要的20条铁则,这些都是凝结了创业者及其后代经营者晶莹血泪的宝贵箴言。读者可以结合自身实际情况,取其精华,对其重新组合,制定出符合自身企业特色的经营战略与方针。

孵化皮克斯: 从艺术乌托邦到创意帝国的非凡之旅

To Pixar and beyond: my unlikely journey with Steve Jobs to make entertainment history
(美) 劳伦斯・利维著; 李文远译 浙江大学出版社 2017-4

“你好,是劳伦斯吗?”电话那头问道,“我是史蒂夫•乔布斯。几年前,我在杂志上看到过你的照片。那时候我就在想:总有一天,我们会一起共事的。”

一通毫无征兆的电话,开启了一段神奇之旅。亏损500万美元、员工周薪要靠乔布斯支付、没有发展空间、迪士尼说了算,要把这样的皮克斯弄上市简直就是天方夜谭。然而,乔布斯就在这种局面下向本书作者劳伦斯·利维抛出了绣球。

尽管关于皮克斯充满传奇色彩的创意和制片历程,人们已经写过很多,但本书要从另一个不同角度看待皮克斯。在作者看来,皮克斯之所以能成功,要得益于它的战略规划和业务布局。皮克斯的辉煌更像是地壳板块相互挤压的结果,创新压力只是其中一个“板块”,其他“板块”则承受着现实世界的生存压力:筹集资金、卖电影票、提升制片速度,等等。

如何让一个空有天才团队却负债累累的艺术乌托邦发展成市值60亿的创意帝国?劳伦斯以当事人的身份讲述了一个不该被忽略的故事,它关于战略规划时的选择、荒谬赌注和风险,也关于解决创新理念和现实需求之间矛盾。它让我们看到这种矛盾是如何塑造了包括乔布斯在内的整个团队,而这家让全世界爱上玩具、小昆虫、鱼、怪物、汽车、厨师和机器人的小公司又是如何在种种内力作用下崛起的。

大众创新: 免费创新如何推动商业未来

Free innovation
Call Number: 338.064/H667=1/2017
(美)埃里克・冯・希佩尔著; 谢名一译 中信出版集团 2017-2

“万众创新”曾是*总理在《政府工作报告》中提到的创新引擎,它鼓励民间的个人和组织积极参与到创新浪潮中,创造新产品,提升社会福利。如今大众创新已经成为新常态经济的必然选择。

在这本书里,作者通过对美国、日本、芬兰等6个国家民间创新研究的调查,提出了“用户免费创新”的概念,即由消费者和*终用户,而不是制造商发展出的创新。在传统理念中,制造商创新占据了市场的主导,然而,随着“创客空间”的普及、互联网工具的便捷化和沟通成本的降低,越来越多的民间高手从个人需求出发,自己负担创新成本,动手改进已有的技术与方法,并且无偿将自己的创新推广给其他人。相反,越来越多的企业,借鉴用户创新者的创意,结合自己在生产和加工方面的优势,成功推出了新的商业产品和解决方案。

互联网时代,开源社区帮助更多人走上了自我创新的道路。面向知识社会、以人为本的下一代创新模式,即创新2.0模式,正在逐步显现其生命力和潜在价值,用户创新成为科技创新活动的重要战场。因此,作者呼吁企业要积极与用户创新者合作,互相借鉴优势,共同推动创新,要看到民间创新者的力量,他们所蕴含的巨大潜力有待挖掘,他们的权益有待更多相关法律法规的保护。

Option B: facing adversity, building resilience, and finding joy
谢丽尔 ・桑德伯格, 亚当 ・格兰特著; 田蓝, 乐怡译 中信出版社 2017-9

畅销书《向前一步》作者、脸书COO谢丽尔•桑德伯格的丈夫戴夫•高德伯格于2015年5月突然去世,她认为自己和孩子们再也不会有真正纯粹的快乐了。谢丽尔在书中写道:“我陷入了空虚。巨大的空虚占据了我的心脏、我的肺叶,限制了我思考的能力,甚至呼吸的能力。”谢丽尔的朋友、沃顿商学院知名心理学家亚当•格兰特告诉谢丽尔,我们可以采取一定的方法,一步步从支离破碎的不幸与灾难中复原。我们不是生来就拥有复原力的,复原力需要我们在后天培养和提升。

本书将谢丽尔的个人经历与亚当关于培养复原力的开放性研究结合起来,进行了深入分析及阐述。谢丽尔向我们敞开心扉,从她发现丈夫猝然倒在健身房的地板上开始,描述了她在丈夫去世后感受到的急性悲伤和极度的孤独。然而,本书并没有局限于谢丽尔的个人经历,而是从更广泛的层面去探讨我们该如何克服人生中的逆境,包括疾病、失业、性侵、自然灾害、战争、暴力等不幸。同时,来自不同群体的案例也揭示了每个人都可以培养及提升内在坚韧的复原力,并且拥有重获快乐的能力。

复原力源自我们的更深层次的内在,也来自外部的支持。即便经历了毁灭性的打击与不幸,我们仍可能找到更多的人生意义,并且学会感恩,从而获得成长。本书还提供了诸多极具实践性的方法,启发我们积极地帮助他人,培养自己的同理心,乐善好施,教育出更加坚毅的孩子,创建具有复原力的家庭、职场和社区。

引力波

Black hole blues: and other songs from outer space
Call Number: 539.754/L665=1/2017
珍娜・莱文著; 胡小锐, 万慧译 中信出版社 2017-7

十几亿年前,在浩瀚宇宙的某个时空,两个黑洞发生了碰撞。其中一个黑洞的质量是太阳的29倍,另一个是太阳的36倍,它们碰撞后合并成一个大黑洞,质量达到太阳的60倍。黑洞碰撞是宇宙起源以来威力最大的天文事件之一,释放出的能量超过1021个太阳。黑洞合并时,无数能量以引力波的形式,不停地向外传播,在时空中荡起层层涟漪。

1916年,阿尔伯特·爱因斯坦在一篇关于广义相对论的论文中预言了引力波的存在。2015年9月,引力波经过长达14亿光年的星际旅行来到了地球。从伽利略用一架简陋的望远镜观察太阳开始,人类利用400多年来所拍摄的一系列静止的太空照片,汇编成一部讲述宇宙历史的无声电影。然而,所有望远镜都无法记录黑洞碰撞的过程,人类能够捕捉到的唯一线索可能就是时空振荡发出的声音。半个世纪之前,一股记录宇宙声音的热潮悄然掀起。为了“在相当于地球周长1000亿倍的距离上测量出比人的头发丝直径还要小的长度变化”,为了给宇宙历史这部无声电影配上一张原声大碟,许多科研人员全身心地投入到引力波探测实验当中。2015年9月和2016年2月,激光干涉引力波天文台(LIGO)两次成功探测到引力波,证实了100年前爱因斯坦的预言。

在书中,作者珍娜·莱文再现了50多年来,LIGO科学合作组织的科研人员在此过程中面临的困难、经受的考验和付出的艰辛。引力波探测本来只是一个有意思的思想实验,但引起了雷纳·韦斯、基普·索恩和罗纳德·德雷弗的注意。为了把梦想变成现实,他们组建了一支规模达数百人的国际性研究团队,建造了两台灵敏度非常高的巨型探测器。他们一直在跟时间赛跑,希望在爱因斯坦提出引力波概念100周年纪念日到来之前,能聆听到来自遥远太空的“引力波蓝调”。

Janesville: an American story

Amy Goldstein Simon & Schuster 2017-4

A Washington Post reporter’s intimate account of the fallout from the closing of a General Motors’ assembly plant in Janesville, Wisconsin—Paul Ryan’s hometown—and a larger story of the hollowing of the American middle class.

This is the story of what happens to an industrial town in the American heartland when its factory stills—but it’s not the familiar tale. Most observers record the immediate shock of vanished jobs, but few stay around long enough to notice what happens next, when a community with a can-do spirit tries to pick itself up.

Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Goldstein has spent years immersed in Janesville, Wisconsin where the nation’s oldest operating General Motors plant shut down in the midst of the Great Recession, two days before Christmas of 2008. Now, with intelligence, sympathy, and insight into what connects and divides people in an era of economic upheaval, she makes one of America’s biggest political issues human. Her reporting takes the reader deep into the lives of autoworkers, educators, bankers, politicians, and job re-trainers to show why it’s so hard in the twenty-first century to recreate a healthy, prosperous working class.

One mission: how leaders build a team of teams

Call Number: 658.4022/F994/2017
Chris Fussell, with C.W. Goodyear Portfolio/Penguin 2017-6

Too often, companies end up with teams stuck in their own silos, pursuing goals and metrics in isolation. Their traditional autocratic structures create stability, scalability, and predictability -- but in a world that demands constant adaptation, this traditional model fails. 

In Team of Teams, retired four-star General Stanley McChrystal and former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell made the case for a new organizational model combining the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of a small team with the power and resources of a giant organization. Now, in One Mission, Fussell channels all his experiences, both military and corporate, into powerful strategies for unifying isolated and distrustful teams. 

This practical guide will help leaders in any field implement the Team of Teams approach to tear down their silos, improve collaboration, and avoid turf wars. By committing to one higher mission, organizations develop an overall capability that far exceeds the sum of their parts.

From Silicon Valley software giant Intuit to a government agency on the plains of Oklahoma, organizations have used Fussell’s methods to unite their people around a single compelling vision, resulting in superior performance. One Mission will help you follow their example to a more agile and resilient future.

Red teaming: how your business can conquer the competition by challenging everything

Call Number: 658.4012/H699/2017
Bryce G. Hoffman Crown Business 2017-5

Today, most — if not all — established corporations live with the gnawing fear that there is another Uber out there just waiting to disrupt their industry. Red Teaming is the cure for this anxiety. The term was coined by the U.S. Army, which has developed the most comprehensive and effective approach to Red Teaming in the world today in response to the debacles of its recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, the roots of Red Teaming run very deep: to the Roman Catholic Church’s “Office of the Devil’s Advocate,” to the Kriegsspiel of the Prussian General Staff and to the secretive AMAN organization, Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence. In this book, author Bryce Hoffman shows business how to use the same techniques to better plan for the uncertainties of today’s rapidly changing economy.

Red Teaming is both a set of analytical tools and a mindset. It is designed to overcome the mental blind spots and cognitive biases that all of us fall victim to when we try to address complex problems. The same heuristics that allow us to successfully navigate life and business also cause us to miss or ignore important information. It is a simple and provable fact that we do not know what we do not know. The good news is that, through Red Teaming, we can find out.

In this book, Hoffman shows how the most innovative and disruptive companies, such as Google and Toyota, already employ some of these techniques organically. He also shows how many high-profile business failures, including those that sparked the Great Recession, could easily have been averted by using these approaches. Most importantly, he teaches leaders how to make Red Teaming part of their own planning process, laying the foundation for a movement that will change the way America does business.

Whether it's your first business or your fifth, realistic assessment from the outset can save you a lot of time and money; why pour your heart and soul into a venture that is doomed to fail?

In this book, accomplished venture capitalists share their insight on startups and entrepreneurs: who will fail, who will succeed and why, and what you should do to give your business the very best shot at becoming a global success story. You'll learn how to evaluate your business with a critical eye, and how early customer development can be key in turning a good idea into a great opportunity. If you're serious about building a business that lasts, this book provides invaluable guidance that you really cannot miss.

More than five million people will launch a business this year, and many of them will be great ideas—yet few will be around in five years, and even fewer in ten years.

Great leaders inspire action with their words. They spark enthusiasm and commitment. With a single conversation, they can change the direction of someone's life.

Sheryl Sandberg, Adam Grant ; with Nell Scovell Knopf 2017-4

From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 New York Times best-selling authors of Lean In and Originals: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.

After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build. 

Option B combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere . . . and to rediscover joy.

Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.

(德)于尔根 科卡著 ; 徐庆译. 文汇出版社 2017-6

2008年的金融危机爆发以来,大众对金融危机及其不可预测的后果的批评,使得看似过时的问题再度引发关注:人们又开始追问资本主义的优点与缺点、矛盾与发展潜力。

国际知名的资本主义研究权威于尔根·科卡深入浅出地梳理了近代资本主义的崛起与发展以及十九、二十世纪以来资本主义的全球扩张,重新审视资本主义价值观与人类文明的关系,对马克思、韦伯、熊彼特等大师有关资本主义的观点展开分析,展示了资本主义发展过程中自我批判、自我调节的机制。

像一辆左右摇晃的自行车,在反复的失衡和再平衡中,资本主义继续书写它虽不光彩却依然不失精彩的故事,眼下仍没有停笔的征兆。

创新的族谱 : 以色列新兴产业的演进

The evolution of a new industry : a genealogical approach
伊斯雷尔 德罗里, 塞缪尔 埃利斯, 祖尔 夏皮拉著 ; 龚雅静译 上海社会科学院出版社 2017-7

本书作者揭示了以色列高科技行业的创新文化是如何形成的,这种创新文化能让发现商机的秘诀代代相传,能让新企业获得盘根错节的支撑。顺着以色列高科技行业从孵化期到成熟阶段的演进过程,作者用人们常称的族谱的方式来研究这个行业,形成了这一族谱法。这种分析方法让人们关注到产业演进动态的一面,将母公司初始环境影响与相应下线族谱公司以及潜能印记联系起来。本书认为族谱演进是了解新企业出现速率和范围的关键方法,族谱演进与机会结构、生产率和地理集群等因素同等重要。

石油王朝沉浮录

The big rich : the rise and fall of the greatest Texas oil fortunes
布赖恩 伯勒著; 毕崇毅, 卜龙祥, 邹怡译 机械工业出版社 2017-11

本书主题直指20世纪美国的经济政治源泉——得州石油权势集团。本书讲述了得州四大石油家族的金钱、家庭和权力的扣人心弦的故事。

这四大巨头是罗伊·卡伦、H.L.亨特、克林特·默奇森和希德·理查森,他们个个出身卑微,最后却都成为得州最富有、最有影响力的石油家族的创建者。和同行一起,他们把美国的财富和权力扩张到南部和西部,为现代保守主义的崛起提供了大部分资金,还把三个土生土长的得州人送入白宫。作为一个社会阶层,他们一起创造了美国的新传说:耀武扬威的得州石油巨头拥有私人岛屿、广阔的牧场,或许还有一两支橄榄球队,和总统以及好莱坞明星相交甚厚。

四巨头的后代出现在头条新闻中的频率要远远超过他们自己,而且有几个后代的收入也远远超过了他们。除了个别例外情况,这些家族的财富都先后因为痛苦的家族仇恨、丑闻、破产等原因被终结,到20世纪80年代后期,大富豪时代已经彻底结束。但是,正如得州本土作家布赖恩·伯勒在这本非常引人入胜的著作中揭示的,即使在当今时代,得州石油集团仍然发挥着巨大的经济、政治和文化影响力。

宗承灏著的《帝国往事(隋唐大繁华背后的暗伤605-758)》描绘了中国的7世纪和8世纪,也就是隋唐之交的百年。在那里,盛世就像是一个精心炮制、虚幻而又深刻的镜中世界。在这本书里,你看见的同样是帝王将相,可又不是你所熟悉的面孔。在那散落的尘埃里,隐逸着别样的风情。它不仅仅属于某一个人,更属于投身其间的每一个人。它对你的魅惑有多大,你对它就有多少的好奇与怕。历史不是帝王将相的功德簿,更不是这个大帝那个大帝的起居注。对于那些毫无头绪的历史叙事,那些天地间的号哭、月光下的阴谋、酒宴上的酣畅,无不是人情利害在时间里降妖捉怪。对于那些历史上肯定发生过而史书没有记载的事情,你要看到它们,嗅到它们,最好能触摸到它们的心跳。

China's innovation challenge : overcoming the middle-income trap

Call Number: 338.951/C539/2016
Arie Y. Lewin, Martin Kenney, Johann Peter Murmann Cambridge University Press 2016-12

The miracle growth of the Chinese economy has decreased from a compound annual growth rate of 10% to less than 7% in 2015. The two engines of growth - export on a scale never before witnessed and massive infrastructure investments - are reaching the point of diminishing returns. This poses the central question which is explored in this book - can China escape the middle-income trap? Assuming current political arrangements remain unchanged and that it does not or cannot adopt Western sociopolitical economic regimes, can China develop an indigenous growth model centered on innovation? This compilation gathers leading Chinese and other international scholars to consider the daunting challenges and complexities of building an innovation-driven Chinese growth model. Providing several comprehensive perspectives, it examines key areas such as the institutional system, technology, sociocultural forces and national policy. The analyses and their conclusions range from strong optimism to deep pessimism about China's future.

Sell like a team : the blueprint for building teams that win big at high-stakes meetings

Call Number: 658.855/D143/2017
Michael Dalis McGraw-Hill 2017-6

Gone are the days of meeting a client for lunch, chatting about your product, and closing the sale over dessert. Buyers today look very differently from those of the past. They make networked purchasing decisions by committee, with diverse roles, interests and backgrounds. With access to more information and a greater ability to share it, they demand value, access and alignment from their counterparties.

Sales is now a team sport, and to win you have to build and manage selling squads that work in complete alignment―not just during client meetings, but before and after, as well. In Sell Like a Team, Michael Dalis, a senior consultant at the legendary sales training firm, The Richardson Company, guides you through the process of creating and managing selling squads that execute and win in every sales meeting or pitch.

Winning selling squads are fueled by trust. There is an effective leader and every member knows his or her role. They plan, practice and make adjustments together. During customer meetings, they execute as a unit.  And afterward, they debrief together so they can advance the sale, replicate the high points and eliminate the low ones in future meetings.

In today’s competitive market, the difference between the winner and all the others is a lean at the tape.  There’s a world of difference between teams that are qualified and those that win. This groundbreaking guide provides everything you need to create and organize selling squads that win more and win big.

The greatest workplaces have one thing in common; they speak the truth!  And they do it without causing anger, resentment, or defensiveness. 

Unfortunately, a whopping 80 to 90 percent of employees and managers are reluctant, or struggle, to speak the truth. 

New York Times bestselling author Mark Murphy provides the science and tools for calmly and rationally leading people to question their preconceptions, accept new information, and eventually change their beliefs. 

Truth at Work shows that by moving from confrontations to conversations, from feelings to facts, and from diatribe to dialogue, you can get everyone to hear and accept hard truths.

Creating great choices : a leader's guide to integrative thinking

Jennifer Riel and Roger L. Martin. Harvard Business Publishing Press 2017-9

When it comes to our hardest choices, it can seem as though making trade-offs is inevitable. But what about those crucial times when accepting the obvious trade-off just isn't good enough? What do we do when the choices in front of us don't get us what we need? In those cases, rather than choosing the least worst option, we can use the models in front of us to create a new and superior answer. This is integrative thinking.

First introduced by world-renowned strategic thinker Roger Martin in The Opposable Mind, integrative thinking is an approach to problem solving that uses opposing ideas as the basis for innovation. Now, in Creating Great Choices, Martin and his longtime thinking partner Jennifer Riel vividly illustrate how integrative thinking works, and how to do it.

The book includes fresh stories of successful integrative thinkers that will demystify the process of creative problem solving, as well as practical tools and exercises to help readers engage with the ideas. And it lays out the authors' four-step methodology for creating great choices, which can be applied in virtually any context. The result is a replicable, thoughtful approach to finding a "third and better way" to make important choices in the face of unacceptable trade‐offs.

Insightful and instructive, Creating Great Choices blends storytelling, theory, and hands-on advice to help any leader or manager facing a tough choice.

Never give up : Jack Ma in his own words

Call Number: 650.092/N513/2016
Suk Lee and Bob Song B2 Books, An Agate Imprint 2016-7

Ever since the Alibaba Group went public on September 19, 2014—with an initial public offering of a record-breaking $25 billion—Jack Ma, the founder and charismatic "spiritual leader" of the e-commerce behemoth, has been making headlines around the world. In 2014, the company's online transactions totaled $248 billion—more than those of Amazon and eBay combined. The first Chinese entrepreneur to appear on the cover of Forbes, Ma is the now the second-richest man in China, with a net worth that is estimated to be north of $29 billion.

Despite Ma's massive influence in China and in the global tech world, his inspirational rags-to-riches story is relatively unknown to the general American public. Never Give Up: Jack Ma In His Own Words is a comprehensive guide to the inner workings of arguably the most prominent figure in the global tech world in the past 20 years—comprised entirely of Ma's own thought-provoking and candid quotes.

When Ma decided to start his first Internet company in 1999, few Chinese people knew what the Internet was. Ma, a former English teacher, knew nothing about coding, and his $20,000 in startup funds were not made up of investments from venture capitalists but loans from his family. He channeled his startup experience into Alibaba, a group of websites that allows businesses and people to connect in order to buy and sell products (similar to eBay and Amazon) while also collecting advertising revenue (similar to Google). By some measures, Alibaba is now the largest e-commerce site in the world.

In this book, more than 200 quotes on business values, innovation, entrepreneurship, competition, management, teamwork, life, and more provide an intimate and direct look into the mind of this modern business icon and philanthropist. Many of these quotes are translated directly from the Chinese press and interviews. For readers who do not read Chinese and have no other access to these materials, this book provides invaluable insight into the mind of one of the world's most successful business magnates.

But if you've ever struggled for the right response to an unwelcome gift or floundered for conversation at the dinner party from hell, fear not: help is at hand. In Rules for Modern Life, Sir David Tang, resident agony uncle at the Financial Times, delivers a satirical masterclass in navigating the social niceties of modern life. Whether you're unsure of the etiquette of doggy bags or wondering whether a massage room in your second home would be de trop, Sir David has the answer to all your social anxieties - and much more besides.

The joy of leadership : how positive psychology can maximize your impact (and make you happier) in a challenging world

Call Number: 303.34019/B456/2017
Tal Ben-Shahar and Angus Ridgway John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2017-8

The difference between flourishing and floundering is 10X. The difference between quantity and quality is a factor of 10. The difference in levels of engagement is exponential. People functioning at the highest level are what the authors call 10x leaders. Research on these leaders consistently brought up five major strengths. This book teaches readers to become a 10x leader using these five key areas, the SHARP framework.

●     Strengths: 10X leaders stop trying to eliminate weaknesses and learn to focus on their strengths

●     Health: 10X leaders stop trying to eliminate stress and learn how to integrate periods of restoration

●     Absorption: 10X leaders stop waiting for the lightning of focus and creativity to strike and learn how to achieve consistent engagement and presence

●     Relationships: 10X leaders stop trying to exert power and control and learn to cultivate healthy relationships through positivity and authenticity

●     Purpose: 10X leaders stop grinding out tasks and learn how to find meaning and commitment in everything they do

The 10X elixir of peak performance comes not from focusing on just one of these areas, but from learning to light the fire of all five aspects of SHARP and functioning naturally with them on a daily basis. If you just cultivate one or two aspects of leadership skills you are unlikely to succeed. If one of the five isn’t taken care of it affects the performance of the whole. But if you focus on all five areas, you will not only be more likely to find what helps you most, you have the best chance of enjoying the synergy of performance multiplication.

The power of onlyness : make your wild ideas mighty enough to dent the world

In this book, Nilofer Merchant, one of the world's top-ranked business thinkers, reveals that, in fact, we have now reached an unprecedented moment of opportunity for your ideas to "make a dent" on the world.

If you build upon your signature ingredient of purpose and connect with those who are equally passionate, you have a lever by which to move the world. This limitless potential of onlyness has already been recognized by Thinkers 50, the Oscars of management, which cited it one of the five ideas that will shape business for next twenty years.

Finance, Society and Sustainability:

How to Make the Financial System Work for the Economy, People and Planet
Call Number: 332.0415/S587/2017
Nick Silver London Palgrave Macmillan UK 2017-9

This book is a critical analysis of the impact of the financial system on the economy, society and the natural environment. It cuts through the noise to looks at its purpose, its activities, and what it does in practice.

Unlike other books that cover the last financial crisis and the risk of another one; this book is about the consequence of the financial system continuing in its current form. It argues that the financial system is a construct of flawed economic theories, designed in the hope that the market will efficiently allocate society’s capital. Instead, the finance sector allocates savings and investment to maximize its own revenues, with resulting collateral damage to the economy, society and the environment. Although governments try to preserve and regulate the existing system, it is being replaced by a new system driven by technological innovation. The book describes the opportunities this presents for a renaissance of the financial system to actually meet the needs of society, and to re-engineer our economy to avoid environmental crisis.

The book is for anyone who would like to understand the finance system’s purpose, what it does in practice and its impact on the real world. For those working in the industry it provides an overview of the system, their place within it, and how to bring about change. For students and academics it provides a valuable critique of the financial system, and the theories on which it is based. For financial policymakers and regulators it identifies key challenges in their activities.

Drawing on their own research, best-in-class studies, and extensive consulting, they show leaders how to properly diagnose the state of their teams, hone in on the element that needs attention, and seamlessly shift focus among the three components of teamwork as time goes on.
