Green, Inc. : a guide to business and the environment by Frances Cairncross( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1990s have seen an extraordinary amount of activity on the environmental front: the emergence of global warming as a serious concern, the successful completion of several environmental treaties, conflicts over trade and the environment, the discovery of the severity of pollution in the former Soviet empire, the greening of the World Bank, and the widespread acknowledgment that industry can make money by pursuing responsible environmental policies. In Green, Inc., award-winning environmental journalist Frances Cairncross delves into these and other topics, focusing her attention on those aspects of environmental issues that have economic implications. She examines the relationship between the environment and industrial competitiveness, international trade, aid to developing countries, energy efficiency, waste management, and economic growth

The 1960s were a turning point for postwar economic policy. They were the high point of along boom that ran from the end of the Second World War to the oil crisis in 1973.

Frances Cairncross, senior editor of The Economist and author of the best selling Costing the Earth, shows that economic growth does not have to be at the expense of environmental protection. For the poor, growth is essential, to eliminate the threats to health and environmental security that poverty presents. As for the more affluent, they may be unwilling to sacrifice their living standards, even for a cleaner environment. The question is, rather, how can the environmental impact of growth be minimized? Here, the role of business is crucial. New technologies and well-designed policies have t

The company of the future : meeting the management challenges of the communications revolution by Frances Cairncross( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Company of the Future argues that we have grossly underestimated the power of the Internet to change the way companies behave. We are entering a volatile period of fundamental organizational change from which will emerge a new type of company - one that will require a new set of leadership and management skills to run it." "This book boldly asserts that managers and their companies must embrace and exploit the very technologies that have upended their jobs and their businesses. And they must look inside - improving the relationships among managers and employees - before they can realize the enormous potential that new technologies hold for enabling collaboration with customers, suppliers, and partners." "Managers must learn to wed both technological and human skills if they are to succeed in this new organizational form. In this book, Cairncross outlines ten critical capabilities for surviving what may be the most revolutionary, even frightening period in corporate life." "Setting the agenda for managerial success, The Company of the Future is an insightful guide that will help managers at all levels to anticipate and cope with the extreme challenges ahead in our networked world."--BOOK JACKET

Ireland's economic success : reasons and lessons by Paul Sweeney( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From being one of the poorest countries in Europe just twenty years ago, Ireland is now one of the richest in the world. The number of jobs doubled in under twenty years, living standards increased substantially and an economic boom has been sustained since 1994. Here, Paul Sweeney, the author of the first book on the Celtic Tiger ten years ago, ask why did Ireland, a basket case economy and poor for so long, suddenly take off? He focuses on the reasons why Ireland was successful economically and also examines in the lessons to be learned from this success. He is assisted by the insights of An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, Peter Sutherland as well as other leading business people, trade unionists and perceptive observers. Paul Sweeney, a Dublin-based economist, is a regular contributor to the Irish media on economics and business. In this International Edition of Paul Sweeney's analysis of the Irish economic success story Frances Cairncross, Rector of Exeter College, Oxford and one of the world's leading economic writers, assisted by Daragh McDowell, has provided an Introduction which sets Ireland's economic achievements in their international context and answers the question - is the Irish experience replicable in other economies?
