The Future is Asian
12,99 € *

A compelling, eye-opening account of how Asia is creating a new template for the future of the world from Parag Khanna, a renowned globalization scholar and former senior advisor to the US National Intelligence Council and Special Operations Forces. Asia is where the action is. Five billion people, one-third of the global economy, two-thirds of global economic growth, a third of the Fortune 100 companies, eight of the ten largest armies, five nuclear powers, and massive technological innovation. Whether using demography, geography, or economy as a metric, Asia is already the present-and it is certainly the future. In The Future Is Asian, Parag Khanna sweeps us along on his travels spanning Saudi Arabia to Japan and Russia to Australia, explaining how Asia is by far the most ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse region of the planet. Even for Asians, Asia is dizzying to navigate. That complexity leads to common misdiagnoses: Western thinking on Asia conflates the entire region with China, predicts World War III around every corner, and regularly forecasts debt-driven collapse for the region´s major economies. But in the real world, the region is experiencing a confident new wave of growth. India and Southeast Asia are now outpacing China, leaders have put aside territorial disputes in favor of integration, and today´s infrastructure investments are the platform for the next generation of urban and digital growth. We cannot afford to continue to get Asia so wrong, warns Khanna. If the nineteenth century featured the Europeanization of the world, and the twentieth century its Americanization, then the twenty-first century is surely the time of Asianization. With America´s universities and tech sector dependent on Asian talent and politicians singing the praises of Asia´s glittering cities and efficient governments, Asia is firmly in our nation´s consciousness. Now The Future Is Asian accurately shows Asia from the inside out, telling the story of how this mega-region is coming together and reshaping the entire planet at the same time.

Mexican Banks and Foreign Finance
82,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is one of the first historical revisions of the Latin American debt crisis of 1982, exploring recently disclosed archival sources for a number of creditor and debtor institutions. It fills a gap on the national and international historiography on international finance in the 1970s and the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s. The domestic banking approach in revisiting the 1982 financial crisis is a main distinction of this work and the consequences of the involvement of Mexican banks in international finance a major contribution to the literature. Beyond its thoroughly international approach, the book addresses a broad array of disciplines: financial history, political economy, international relations and business history. While the focus is on financial crisis, its implications extend to current regulatory and financial policy relative to crisis and non-crisis matters. In addition to providing a template for understanding other instances of financial crisis, the book points the way to research in a wide range of additional questions. These include the economic role of foreign capital, the transmission of financial crisis, and the decision criteria of states during crises. It also offers a strong example of the importance of politics in resolving economic problems. Because of this, the book will be of interest to historians, economists and political scientists.

Uberland (eBook, ePUB)
15,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Silicon Valley technology is transforming the way we work, and Uber is leading the charge. An American startup that promised to deliver entrepreneurship for the masses through its technology, Uber instead built a new template for employment using algorithms and Internet platforms. Upending our understanding of work in the digital age, Uberland paints a future where any of us might be managed by a faceless boss. The neutral language of technology masks the powerful influence algorithms have across the New Economy. Uberland chronicles the stories of drivers in more than twenty-five cities in the United States and Canada over four years, shedding light on their working conditions and providing a window into how they feel behind the wheel. The book also explores Uber’s outsized influence around the world: the billion-dollar company is now influencing everything from debates about sexual harassment and transportation regulations to racial equality campaigns and labor rights initiatives. Based on award-winning technology ethnographer Alex Rosenblat’s firsthand experience of riding over 5,000 miles with Uber drivers, daily visits to online forums, and face-to-face discussions with senior Uber employees, Uberland goes beyond the headlines to reveal the complicated politics of popular technologies that are manipulating both workers and consumers.
