Capitalism 4.0: The Birth of a New Economy in the Aftermath of Crisis Free Book Summary

In this summary you will learn
  • How the four phases of capitalism have evolved so far
  • How a confluence of cycles and trends led to the 2008 financial crisis
  • How misguided economic philosophies nearly destroyed the financial system
  • Why the world needs “Capitalism 4.0.”
Why you should read Capitalism 4.0

Capitalism is dead; long live capitalism. That's the central tenet of veteran business journalist Anatole Kaletsky's instructive, perceptive tome. Global capitalism has served humanity pretty well over the centuries, and it has survived by changing with the times. The aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis and the near collapse of the world's financial system demand a major revamp of free market thinking. The new version, which Kaletsky posits as the fourth in capitalism's history, will take its lessons from the past and adapt them to harness market forces in the 21st century. getAbstract recommends his thorough recap of what's happened and his vision of what probably will happen â€" including economic recovery â€" to all those looking for a cogent handle on the economic future.

Why you should read Leaders as Teachers

The best football teams do not park their star players on the bench. Your top executives are your star players. Now, make them play ball: Deploy their expertise by involving them in teaching and training. Learning expert Edward Betof describes how companies can create “leaders-as-teachers” programs, sharing the knowledge of their senior executives, top managers and in-house experts, and, thus, fully benefiting from their top people's expertise and savvy. Having served for 10 years as chief learning officer for Becton, Dickinson and Company, a leading medical technology company, Betof speaks with an insider's informed perspective. He made this program work in the trenches. getAbstract believes his book is well suited for learning and development officers, and for others who want to put teaching and learning at the core of their companies' success.

Zombie Economics: How Dead Ideas Still Walk Among Us Free Book Summary

In this summary you will learn
  • What five “zombie” economic ideas endure
  • How the 2008 financial crisis drove a stake through the heart of those theories
Why you should read Zombie Economics

Like the villain in a horror movie, discredited economic theories can return to haunt you. Australian economist John Quiggin claims that some of these ideas â€" like total privatization, perfectly rational markets and trickle-down policies â€" nearly destroyed the world's economy, and that they are trying to make one more comeback. In an attempt to drive the final stake through the brain-eating, dead soul of “zombie economics,” he knifes through the five most dangerous principles of “market liberalism.” With no apparent fear of being controversial, he presents a compelling case as to why each of those “zombie ideas” failed and describes a new, alternative approach, melding the best of free-market capitalism with judicious use of government involvement to address crucial social needs. Quiggin heavily annotates his work and provides a thoughtfully researched bibliography. Though the economic jargon can, at times, slow your progress, Quiggin's book rewards your persistence. getAbstract recommends this eerie tour through defunct yet durable economics to anyone who enjoys a good scare. Find your silver bullets, construct your booby traps and carry your axes for good measure: Quiggin says it is high time to kill those zombies once and for all.
