4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 688 libraries worldwide
"The baby boomer generation is headed for a shock as it hits retirement: boomers will be long on life expectancy but short on income. In addition to Social Security, the pillars of retirement income for Americans have been either lifetime corporate pensions or employee-contribution plans such as 401Ks. But both retirement strategies are in trouble. Buffeted by pension cuts, corporate bankruptcies, and the 2001-2002 stock market crash, most boomers now expect to be working into their retirement years."--Container.

Explores the central values of Japan, Germany, and the U.S. and focuses on what drives each of these societies. America's hallmark is individualism; Japan's the pre-eminence of the group.

The Power game. Part 2. The Pentagon ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
Shows that in spite of the huge military build-up during the 1980s the nation's military effectiveness has been limited and could force the early use of nuclear weapons. Reasons include rivalry among the military services, career moves, coverups, pork barrel funding, erroneous military test results, and whistle blower backlash. Shows how military spending decisions are often made less for national security reasons than for economic and political interests. With little hope of change in sight, the massive waste and inefficiency in the Pentagon's procurement of arms will continue.
Juggling work and family ( Visual )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
Juggling Work and Family focuses on the increasing tensions between workplace expectations and family needs. The traditional family with a stay-at-home mother and working father has been replaced by the growing number of single parents and dual-career couples. In this fast-paced new economy, Americans are feeling the stress of working more and have less time than ever for their family. This program looks at how working parents in various occupations across the country are trying to reconcile work and family conflicts. The program explores how companies and unions are seeking to ease the work-family conflict with child care centers, subsidies, and alternative work schedules that include part-time work, job-sharing, and telecommuting. Experts analyze the problems, address solutions, and pose the question: what else can be done?
