Summary: Adam Smith was a Scottish professor of moral philosophy. He published his classic The Wealth of Nations in 1776, the year the American Revolution began. Smith became widely known for his ideas of free markets, laissez-faire commerce, and the "invisible hand." Yet English politicians, landed gentry, and the nobility paid little attention and enacted none of Smith's suggested reforms. The American colonies, however, began their existence as an independent nation in 1781 with no money, no industry, no banks, and deep in debt. The Founding Fathers-particularly Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin-turned to the ideas of Adam Smith to create and jump-start an economic system for America with both immediate and long-sustained results. This little-known but vital part of U.S. history is now revealed in Roy C. Smith's highly readable new book. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0312285523

Item Description: Harvard Business Review Press, 2012. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: For half a century the US has sat at the center of the global economic system, and Western-style capitalism has dominated. Now, it's no secret that the center of gravity is shifting. The advanced economies that in 2000 consumed 75% of the world's output will, by 2050, consume just 32%. Meanwhile, the emerging economies of the world--Brazil, India, China, and others--will surge forward. As these fast-growing, low-income economies mature, will they adopt the practices of the old guard? Or will they make their own way, and create the next prevailing version of capitalism? What new opportunities will that create for firms around the world? Standing on the Sun tackles these questions with fresh ideas and provocative examples. Based on firsthand observations of companies defying capitalism's old rules yet prospering, the authors outline new principles for commercial success. Among them: The obsession with return on equity gives way to more broad-based measurements of success. Adam Smith's invisible hand of the market is redeemed by the "invisible handshake" of collaborative networks. Businesses take ownership of the impacts they now call "externalities." Those who need to understand the emerging shape of global capitalism will benefit from Standing on the Sun. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1422131688

Item Description: Penguin Classics, 1982. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: 'It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.'With this landmark treatise on political economy, Adam Smith paved the way for modern capitalism, arguing that a truly free market - fired by competition yet guided as if by an 'invisible hand' to ensure justice and equality - was the engine of a fair and productive society. Books I-III of The Wealth of Nations examine the 'division of labour' as the key to economic growth, by ensuring the interdependence of individuals within society. They also cover the origins of money and the importance of wages, profit, rent and stocks. Smith's work laid the foundations of economic theory in general and 'classical' economics in particular, but the real sophistication of his analysis derives from the fact that it also encompasses a combination of ethics, philosophy and history to create a vast panorama of society.

Item Description: McGraw-Hill, 2012. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH WALL STREET? And How Do We Fix It? Even after the global financial meltdown of 2008, economists have clung to Adam Smith's "Invisible Hand" theory of an always selfregulating market that benefits private and public interests alike. But Duke University professor John Staddon is here to tell that there's also another, darker force at work on Wall Street--a "Malign Hand" that guides all human interactions, including our finances. Combining psychology, behavioral economics, and other sciences, Staddon's explosive new theory reveals the underlying principles behind the economic crisis, exposing the invisible mechanisms that drive our markets today. You'll learn how we can: Prevent market bubbles from buildingDistinguish voluntary from involuntary market risk and regulate them differentlySimplify and restore Glass-SteagallUnderstand market mechanisms through Darwinian dynamicsModerate boom and bust cycles and make financial markets sustainable Using economic theory, global market trends, and psychological research, Staddon's electrifying book is both analytical and prescriptive--with a number of possible solutions to our most pressing economic concerns. You'll learn about the wrong assumptions that underlie our present system, basic rules for managing risk, and the real reasons behind the market's greatest successes and biggest disasters. You'll hear surprising insights into the delicate relationship between Wall Street and Washington--with assessments of the bailouts, the Dodd-Frank bill, and other attempts at financial regulation. Best of all, you'll discover realistic solutions that can stop the boom-and-bust cycle once and for all. Compelling, controversial, and remarkably thorough, The Malign Hand of the Markets will change the way we plan our future, manage our finances, and build our fortunes.

Item Description: Penguin Press, 2014. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The Economist : " Social Physics is filled with rich findings about what makes people tick. Using millions of data points measured over a long period of time in real settings, which Pentland calls 'living laboratories,' the author has monitored human behavior on an unprecedented scale.Pentland's research also offers lessons for policymakers and business people. He advances a new way to protect privacy by creating something of a property right for personal information. Social Physics is a fascinating look at a new field by one of its principal geeks." John Abele, Co-Founder, Boston Scientific: "Understanding, predicting and influencing human behavior has been the goal of social scientists (and leaders anywhere) since the beginning of time. Pentland's Social Physics is a major contribution to this field. By using communication tracking analysis and occasionally human sensors along with big data, he and his team are evolving a new discipline with a unique taxonomy and ontology that brings a higher level of quantification and rigor to a challenging and inherently complex field. Like Surowiecki's The Wisdom of Crowds it will spawn further work and research in a rapidly expanding new body of knowledge." John Seely Brown, Former Chief Scientist, Xerox Corporation and director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC): "Read this book and you will look at tomorrow differently. Reality mining is just the first step on an exciting new journey. Social Physics opens up the imagination to what might now be measurable and modifiable. It also hints at what may lie beyond Adam Smith's invisible hand in helping groups, organizations and societies reach new levels of meaning creation. This is not just social analytics. It also offers pragmatic ways forward." Reed E. Hundt, former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, CEO of the Coalition for Green Capital: "From his MIT aerie, eagle-eyed Alex Pentland has seen the future. His wise and stimulating book teaches us how ideas spring up, flow, and spread. Applying his lessons, we can act collectively to solve previously intractable social, economic and political problems. We can make organizations more productive. We can even have government achieve its proper purposes, with greater fairness and less cost. As challenges like widening inequality and runaway climate change seem to exceed our ability to design solutions, Pentland's data-driven, reality-based, yet sunny optimism about tomorrow should be eagerly welcomed by all readers." Stephen M. Kosslyn, Former Dean of Social Science, Harvard University; Former Director, Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University; Founding Dean, Minerva Schools at KGI : "Sandy Pentland lives in the futureand it shows. This book will not only whisk you up to speed on cutting-edge research at the interface of technology, behavioral science, and the social world, but it will also give you a good sense of what could be next. Professor Pentland brilliantly analyzes how new ideas flow and how, with the emergence of the 'data-driven society,' they will increasingly influence every aspect of our lives.".
