The 100-year life
Gratton, Lynda
London : Bloomsbury Information, 2016
Living: the gift of a long life -- Financing: working for longer -- Working: the employment landscape -- Intangibles: focusing on the priceless -- Scenarios: possible selves -- Stages: new building blocks -- Money: financing a long life -- Time: from recreation to re-creation -- Relationships: the transformation of personal lives.

Does the thought of working for 60 or 70 years fill you with dread? Or can you see the potential for a more stimulating future as a result of having so much extra time? Many of us have been raised on the traditional notion of a three-stage approach to our working lives: education, followed by work and then retirement. But this well-established pathway is already beginning to collapse life expectancy is rising, final-salary pensions are vanishing, and increasing numbers of people are juggling multiple careers. Whether you are 18, 45 or 60, you will need to do things very differently from previous generations and learn to structure your life in completely new ways. The 100-Year Life is here to help. Drawing on the unique pairing of their experience in psychology and economics, Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott offer a broad-ranging analysis as well as a raft of solutions, showing how to rethink your finances, your education, your career and your relationships and create a fulfilling 100-year life. The 100-Year Life is a wake-up call that describes what to expect and considers the choices and options that you will face. It is also fundamentally a call to action for individuals, politicians, firms and governments and offers the clearest demonstration that a 100-year life can be a wonderful and inspiring one.

Household mobility and persistence in Guadalajara, Mexico : 1811-1842
Hardin, Monica L., author
Lanham : Lexington Books, [2017]
The City of Guadalajara, 1531-1821 -- Mobility, Persistence, and Transience Compared -- Mobility and Transience : Product of a Special Era? -- Those Who Stayed : The Persisting Households -- Appendix: Technical Explanations.

"This study examines mobility and migration patterns in early nineteenth-century Guadalajara, Mexico. Using data from censuses, notarial records, wills, and other sources, it reveals a high level of mobility that was short term and often cynical and argues that mobility affected the vast majority of the city's residents"--Provided by publisher.

The rise and fall of emerging powers : globalisation, US power and the global North-South divide
Kiely, Ray, 1964- author
Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
Introduction -- The "rise of the South" and international relations and development theory -- Questioning the rise of the South I : economic globalisation and US power -- Questioning the rise of the South II : from emerging markets boom to emerging markets crisis -- Questioning the rise of the South III : the question of global inequality -- Conclusion : theorising the changing global North-South divide.

This book critically examines the argument that the Global South has risen in recent years, that its rise has intensified since the 2008 financial crisis, and that this in turn has hastened the decline of the West and the US in particular. Drawing on critical theories of international relations and development, Kiely puts the rise into context and shows how the factors that aided the rise of the South have now given way to a less favourable international context. Indeed, economic problems in China and other leading countries, falling commodity prices and capital outflows point us in the direction of identifying a new phase of the 2008 financial crisis: an emerging markets crisis. Kiely argues that this is a crisis which demonstrates the continued dependent position of the South in the context of the uneven and combined development of international capitalism.

Radiografía de la elite económica argentina : estructura y organización en los años noventa
Ana Castellani (coordinadora)
San Martín, Provincia de Buenos Aires : UNSAM Edita, Universidad Nacional de San Martín, 2016
The 1990s were the scene of a process of profound transformations where the economic elite played an important role in the promotion, public support and implementation of many of the main measures. This more active involvement of the economic elite in a stage of implementation of reforms makes inescapable the question of the characteristics, actions and transformations of the sectors that controlled the main sources of economic power during that period. Why is it relevant to know the characteristics and behavior of the Argentine economic elite? Because it has a decisive influence on the process of accumulation, on the distribution of wealth, and on the direction of state action, by virtue of the economic power and political power they hold. Given the centrality of these actors and the relative lack of studies on them, this book proposes an exhaustive analysis from a sociological approach, with the certainty that the analysis of this experience gives us clues to understand the present.

Building the new American economy : smart, fair, and sustainable
Sachs, Jeffrey, author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2017]
In this passionate and powerful book-part manifesto, part plan of action-the renowned economist Jeffrey D. Sachs offers a practical strategy to move America, seemingly more divided than ever, toward a new consensus: sustainable development. Sustainable development is a holistic approach that emphasizes economic, social, and environmental objectives in shaping policy. In focusing too much on economic growth, the United States has neglected rising economic inequality and dire environmental threats. Now, even growth is imperiled. Sachs explores issues that have captivated the nation and political debate, including infrastructure, trade deals, energy policy, the proper size and role of government, the national debt, and income inequality. Not only does he provide illuminating and accessible explanations of the forces at work in each case, but he also presents specific policy solutions. His argument rises above the pessimism born of political paralysis, economic stagnation, and partisanship to devise a brighter way forward, achievable both individually and collectively. Sachs shows how the United States can find a path to renewed economic progress that is fair and environmentally sustainable.

Fake silk : the lethal history of viscose rayon
Blanc, Paul D., 1951- author
London : Yale University Press, [2016]
When a new technology makes people ill, how high does the body count have to be before protective steps are taken? This disturbing book tells a dark story of hazardous manufacturing, poisonous materials, environmental abuses, political machinations, and economics trumping safety concerns. It explores the century-long history of?fake silk,? or cellulose viscose, used to produce such products as rayon textiles and tires, cellophane, and everyday kitchen sponges. Paul Blanc uncovers the grim history of a product that crippled and even served a death sentence to many industry workers while also releasing toxic carbon disulfide into the environment. Viscose, an innovative and lucrative product first introduced in the early twentieth century, quickly became a multinational corporate enterprise. Blanc investigates industry practices from the beginning through two highly profitable world wars, the midcentury export of hazardous manufacturing to developing countries, and the current?greenwashing? of viscose as an eco-friendly product. Deeply researched and boldly presented, this book brings to light an industrial hazard whose egregious history ranks with those of asbestos, lead, and mercury.

[La Plata, Argentina] : Archivo Histórico de la Provincia de Buenos Aires : 2015
This book is a research on sociology, history and memory processes in the Argentine railway communities, beginning with the social actors who intervene in its constitution as a social problem. To that end, Nicolás Damin and Joaquín Aldao visited the railroads, beginning with the town of Patricios on July 9, Buenos Aires, and other towns that were inhabited by railway workers and their families, where the sense of belonging was very strong. On the other hand, there were the merchants, the agricultural producers, who were allowed by the railroad to lower the costs, since they connected them with larger urban centers, allowing a fundamental economic development.

It reviews the key opportunities and challenges ahead for renewable energy, the central pillar of the low-carbon energy transition, as well as the critical role for energy efficiency. WEO-2016 looks at individual coutry pledges and examines how close -- or far -- nations are from reaching their goals. It outlines a course that would limit the rise in global temperature to below 2°C and also plots possible pathways for meeting even more ambitious goals. This year, WEO-2016 also devotes a special chapter tot he critical interplay between water and energy, with an emphasis on the stress points that arise as the linkages between these two sectors intensify."--Back cover.

The people's money : how China is building a global currency
Subacchi, Paola, 1962- author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2017]
Money is the game changer -- China's extraordinary, but still unfinished transformation -- A financially repressed economy -- China: a trading nation without an international currency -- Living with a 'dwarf' currency -- Creating an international currency -- Building a market for the renminbi -- The renminbi moves around -- Managing is the word -- The age of Chinese money.

Many of the world's major economies boast dominant international currencies. Not so for China. Its renminbi has lagged far behind the pound, the euro, and the dollar in global circulationand for good reason. China has long privileged economic policies that have fueled development at the expense of the renminbi's growth, and it has become clear that the underpowered currency is threatening China's future. The nation's leaders now face the daunting task of strengthening the currency without losing control of the nation's economy or risking total collapse. How are they approaching this challenge? In The People's Money, Paola Subacchi introduces readers to China's monetary system, mapping its evolution over the past century and, particularly, its transformation since Deng Xiaoping took power in 1978. Subacchi revisits the policies that fostered the country's economic rise while at the same time purposefully creating a currency of little use beyond China's borders. She shows the key to understanding China's economic predicament lies in past and future strategies for the renminbi. The financial turbulence following the global crisis of 2008, coupled with China's ambitions as a global creditor and chief economic power, has forced the nation to reckon with the limited international circulation of the renminbi. Increasing the currency's reach will play a major role in securing China's future.

Shadow banking : the rise, risks, and rewards of non-bank financial services
Girasa, Rosario J., author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
Traditional Banking in the United States and Its Evolution as Bank Holding Companies -- Shadow Banking (Non-Bank Financial Intermediation)-- Governance of Shadow (Non-Bank) Financial Institutions -- Enhanced Prudential Standards -- Securitization and Repos -- Hedge Funds and Mutual Funds as SIFIs -- Insurance Companies as SIFIs: The MetLife, Inc. Litigation -- International Institutions Affecting Shadow Banking.

This comparative study explores how shadow banking differs from the traditional banking system. It discusses the origins, history, purposes, risks, regulatory constraints, and projected future evolution of both financial sectors of the world economy. This thorough examination of non-bank financial intermediaries follows the migration of services from traditional banks to less-regulated alternative banking products, as well as the evolution of regulations and the Financial Stability Oversight Council to monitor these new entities. Three chapters explore in depth the major financial structures newly designated as systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs), with particular attention to insurance companies such as MetLife, which seek exemption from the designation. Finally, the focus shifts to international financial institutions' efforts to protect consumers and curtail irresponsible shadow banks, with an eye toward the effects of these actions on future banking practices.
