Freefall : America, free markets, and the sinking of the world economy by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this forthright and incisive book, Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz explains how America exported bad economics, bad policies, and bad behavior to the rest of the world, only to cobble together a haphazard and ineffective response when the markets finally seized up. Stiglitz then outlines a way to restore the balance between markets and government, address the inequalities of the global financial system, and demand more good ideas (and less ideology) from economists
The Soros lectures : at the Central European University by George Soros( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mediante un ameno relato en primera persona, Soros nos ofrece en detalle el marco conceptual que lo ha guiado en sus negocios, incluso en medio de la confusión de los mercados, y, de manera más general, en la vida. Tras exponer el concepto de sociedad abierta que ha orientado su obra filantrópica global, nos advierte del potencial conflicto entre esta sociedad abierta y el capitalismo. Por último, se centra en el camino que tenemos por delante, analizando con detenimiento el papel cada vez más importante que China desempañará en el futuro."-- Back cover
The price of inequality : [how today's divided society endangers our future] by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work examines how the wealthy classes have contributed to growing inequality in society and explains how the quest to increase wealth has hindered the country's economic growth as well as its efforts to solve its most pressing economic problems. In it the author, a Nobel Prize-winning economist puts forth a forceful argument against America's vicious circle of growing inequality. America currently has the most inequality, and the least equality of opportunity, among the advanced countries. While market forces play a role in this stark picture, politics has shaped those market forces. Here the author exposes the efforts of well-heeled interests to compound their wealth in ways that have stifled true, dynamic capitalism. Along the way he examines the effect of inequality on our economy, our democracy, and our system of justice. He explains how inequality affects and is affected by every aspect of national policy, and offers a vision for a more just and prosperous future, supported by a concrete program to achieve that vision

The chemistry between us : love, sex, and the science of attraction by Larry Young( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How much control do we have over love? Much less than we like to think. All that mystery, all that poetry, all those complex behaviors surrounding human bonding leading to the most life-changing decisions we'll ever make, are unconsciously driven by a few molecules in our brains. How does love begin? How can two strangers come to the conclusion that it would not only be pleasant to share their lives, but that they must share them? How can a man say he loves his wife, yet still cheat on her? Why do others stay in relationships even after the romance fades? How is it possible to fall in love with the "wrong" person? How do people come to have a "type"? Physical attraction, jealousy, infidelity, mother-infant bonding--all the behaviors that so often leave us befuddled--are now being teased out of the fog of mystery thanks to today's social neuroscience. Larry Young, one of the world's leading experts in the field, and journalist Brian Alexander explain how those findings apply to you. Drawing on real human stories and research from labs around the world, The Chemistry Between Us is a bold attempt to create a "grand unified theory" of love."--Jacket flap

El monstruo amable : ¿el mundo se vuelve de derechas? by Raffaele Simone( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El concepto de izquierda sigue teniendo sentido hoy día? Desde hace tiempo en Occidente este conjunto de convicciones parece estar empañado y en declive. Casi ninguna de sus grandes metas históricas ha logrado realizarse y resulta difícil creer que alguna idea de izquierda vaya a conseguir modelar el futuro próximo. Europa, y en cierto sentido el mundo, tiende a la derecha. Todos los esfuerzos de la izquierda para adaptarse a los nuevos tiempos han sido insuficientes. La derecha, en su forma globalizada y mediática, ha sido la verdadera sorpresa del panorama político-cultural de principios del siglo XXI: promete felicidad y bienestar para todos. Está muy al día en cuanto a imagen y técnicas de propaganda, quiere parecer moderna y vital. Es el Monstruo Amable, el rostro sonriente de este nuevo despotismo que degradará a los hombres "sin atormentarlos". La consolidación de este modelo ha impuesto la noción de que las distinciones ideológicas ya están superadas, ha descabalado los principios de la izquierda y ha alejado a una gran masa de sus simpatizantes naturales. La izquierda ya no encaja con el mundo en que vivimos hoy. Se ha visto obligada a aligerar drásticamente sus aspiraciones y sus ideales han ido haciéndose cada vez más genéricos y conciliadores. A sus partidarios les toca ahora una tarea descomunal: buscar nuevos contenidos a la altura de los tiempos capaces de llenar de formas modernas el envoltorio ya casi vacío en el que todavía se lee "izquierda"

The sleepwalkers : how Europe went to war in 1914 by Christopher M Clark( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pacy, sensitive and formidably argued history of the causes of the First World War, from acclaimed historian and author Christopher Clark. Sunday Times And Independent Books Of The Year 2012. The moments that it took Gavrilo Princip to step forward to the stalled car and shoot dead Franz Ferdinand and his wife were perhaps the most fateful of the modern era. An act of terrorism of staggering efficiency, it fulfilled its every aim: it would liberate Bosnia from Habsburg rule and it created a powerful new Serbia, but it also brought down four great empires, killed millions of men and destroyed a civilization. What made a seemingly prosperous and complacent Europe so vulnerable to the impact of this assassination? In The Sleepwalkers Christopher Clark retells the story of the outbreak of the First World War and its causes. Above all, it shows how the failure to understand the seriousness of the chaotic, near genocidal fighting in the Balkans would drag Europe into catastrophe
