The idea of a moral economy : Gerard of Siena on usury, restitution, and prescription
Gerardus, de Senis, -1336?
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, 2016
"The Idea of a Moral Economy is the first modern edition and English translation of three questions disputed at the University of Paris in 1330 by the theologian Gerard of Siena. The questions represent the most influential late medieval formulation of the natural law argument against usury and the illicit acquisition of property. Together they offer a particularly clear example of scholastic ideas about the nature and purpose of economic activity and the medieval concept of a moral economy. In his introduction, editor Lawrin Armstrong discusses Gerard's arguments and considers their significance both within the context of scholastic philosophy and law and as a critique of contemporary mainstream economics. His analysis demonstrates how Gerard's work is not only a valuable source for understanding economic thought in pre-modern Europe, but also a fertile resource for scholars of law, economics, and philosophy in medieval Europe and beyond."--

Realizing the potential of the American Community Survey : challenges, tradeoffs, and opportunities
Panel on Addressing Priority Technical Issues for the Next Decade of the American Community Survey, Committee on National Statistics, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, National Research Council of the National Academies
Washington, D.C. : National Academies Press, [2015]
Vision for the American community survey -- Sample design and precision of estimates -- Data collection methods -- Data processing and analytic issues -- Data dissemination -- Survey content -- Appendixes: A. Usability analysis: tract-level 2008-2012 ACS data -- B. Examples of differences between census counts and ACS population estimates -- C. Data quality filtering rates, 1-year data, 2012* -- D. Data quality filtering rates, 3-year data, 2010-2012* -- E. 2014 American community survey mail questionnaire -- F. ACS questions by year introduced and agency -- G. Biographical sketches of panel members and staff.

"The American Community Survey (ACS) was conceptualized as a replacement to the census long form, which collected detailed population and housing data from a sample of the U.S. population, once a decade, as part of the decennial census operations. The long form was traditionally the main source of socio-economic information for areas below the national level. The data provided for small areas, such as counties, municipalities, and neighborhoods is what made the long form unique, and what makes the ACS unique today. Since the successful transition from the decennial long form in 2005, the ACS has become an invaluable resource for many stakeholders, particularly for meeting national and state level data needs. However, due to inadequate sample sizes, a major challenge for the survey is producing reliable estimates for smaller geographic areas, which is a concern because of the unique role fulfilled by the long form, and now the ACS, of providing data with a geographic granularity that no other federal survey could provide. In addition to the primary challenge associated with the reliability of the estimates, this is also a good time to assess other aspects of the survey in order to identify opportunities for refinement based on the experience of the first few years. Realizing the Potential of the American Community Survey provides input on ways of improving the ACS, focusing on two priority areas: identifying methods that could improve the quality of the data available for small areas, and suggesting changes that would increase the survey's efficiency in responding to new data needs. This report considers changes that the ACS office should consider over the course of the next few years in order to further improve the ACS data. The recommendations of Realizing the Potential of the American Community Survey will help the Census Bureau improve performance in several areas, which may ultimately lead to improved data products as the survey enters its next decade."--Publisher's description.

Brazillionaires : wealth, power, decadence, and hope in an American country
Cuadros, Alex
New York : Spiegel & Grau, [2016]
Prologue: The crash -- Part one: Roots of wealth -- God is Brazilian -- The price of progress -- Manifest destiny -- Nation building -- Prosperity gospel -- Part two: The Brazilian dream -- Visionary -- Helping hands -- The profit motive -- The backlash -- Too big to fail -- After the crash.

When Bloomberg News invited the young American journalist Alex Cuadros to report on Brazil's emerging class of billionaires at the height of the historic Brazilian boom, he was poised to cover two of the biggest business stories of our time: how the giants of the developing world were taking their place at the center of global capitalism, and how wealth inequality was changing societies everywhere. The billionaires of Brazil and their massive fortunes resided at the very top of their country's economic pyramid, and whether they quietly accumulated exceptional power or extravagantly displayed their decadence, they formed a potent microcosm of the world's richest .001 percent. They held sway over the economy, government, media, and stewardship of the environment; they determined the spiritual fates and populated the imaginations of their countrymen. In 2012, Eike Batista ranked as the eighth-richest person in the world, was famous for his marriage to a beauty queen, and was a fixture in the Brazilian press. But by 2015, Batista was bankrupt, his son Thor had been indicted for manslaughter, and Brazil--its president facing impeachment, its provinces combating an epidemic, and its business and political class torn apart by scandal--had become a cautionary tale of a country run aground by its elites. Over four years, Cuadros reported on media moguls and televangelists, energy barons and shadowy figures from the years of military dictatorship, soy barons who lived on the outskirts of the Amazon, and new-economy billionaires spinning money from speculation. His zealous reporting takes us from penthouses to courtrooms, from favelas to art fairs, from scenes of unimaginable wealth to desperate, massive street protests. Within a business narrative that deftly dramatizes the volatility of the global economy, Cuadros offers us literary journalism with a grand sweep.--Adapted from dust jacket.

Roman artisans and the urban economy
Hawkins, Cameron, 1973- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
1. Seasonality, uncertainty, and consumer demand in an ancient city -- 2. Specialisation, associations, and the organisation of production -- 3. Manumission and the urban labour market -- 4. The artisan household and the Roman economy.

"This book offers the first comprehensive study of economic conditions and economic life in Roman cities during the late Republic and early Empire. By employing a sophisticated methodology based upon comparative evidence and contemporary economic theory, the author develops interlocking arguments about the relationship between four key attributes of urban economic life in Roman antiquity: the nature and magnitude of consumer demand; the structure of urban labour markets; the strategies devised by urban artisans in their efforts to navigate their social and economic environments; and the factors that served to limit both the overall performance of the Roman economy, and its potential for intensive growth. While the author's methodology and conclusions will be of particular interest to specialists in economic history, other readers will profit from his discussion of topics such as slavery and manumission, the economic significance of professional associations, and the impact of gender on economic behaviour"--

Shantytown, USA : forgotten landscapes of the working poor
Goff, Lisa
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, [2016]
Walden, a shanty or a house? -- Shanties on the western frontier -- Shantytowns on the urban frontier -- A working-class ideology of dwelling -- Shantytown's Broadway debut -- Transformed by art and journalism -- African American shantytowns -- Depression-era shantytowns.

"Mention "shantytowns" today and the universal assumption is that you'll be talking about exploding slums in a developing nation in Africa, South Asia, or South America. This book adds the United States to the international discourse on shantytowns, tracing their appearance on both the western and urban frontiers of the young nation starting in the 1820s, and tracking them through the urbanization and industrialization that convulsed the country in the decades leading up to and following the Civil War. Drawing on a wealth of unexamined texts, images, popular music, and films, filtered through the lens of scholarship on everyday landscapes, Shantytown USA restores shantytowns to the central place they once occupied in the nation's imagination, and on its landscape."--Provided by publisher.

Stragility : excelling at strategic changes
Auster, Ellen R
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, [2016]
Stragility -- Strategic, agile, people-powered change -- Redefining strategy to win : from lock and load to sense and shift -- Building support : from poisoned by the politics to embrace our inner politician -- Fostering ownership and accountability : from tell and sell to inspire and engage -- Creating successful change again and again : from change fatigue to change fitness -- Putting stragility into action.

"Success in business demands an organization that is agile, innovative, and alert, capable of reinventing itself to handle whatever comes its way. Yet most attempts at transformational change fail, hamstrung by poor strategy, office politics, stakeholder resistance, and the pressures of constant transformation. In Stragility, Ellen Auster and Lisa Hillenbrand provide a powerful, practical, action-oriented approach that equips leaders at all levels to navigate these challenges while building skills and capabilities for the next strategic change. Filled with great examples of leading edge companies, and jam-packed with concrete tips, action steps, and tools, Stragility offers indispensable advice on how to make continuous strategic changes, navigate the politics and emotions of change, and inspire and engage leaders and stakeholders. Building on a field-tested framework the authors have applied in Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and social sector organizations, Stragility provides the tools for creating a thriving, high-energy organization that will excel at strategic change--again and again."--

Life of the party : the remarkable story of how Brownie Wise built, and lost, a Tupperware party empire
Kealing, Bob
New York : Crown Archetype, 2016
Going it alone -- The go-getter -- A perfect fit -- Life of the party -- Gold rush days -- A sunshine state -- "There's gold for me in '53" -- To the stars -- Victory behind us, success before us -- A revolt from within -- The Tupperware ladies -- Best wishes -- Sunshine Cinderella -- Storm front -- The breaking point -- Pictures of despair -- Moving on.

"The incredible story of Brownie Wise, the Southern single mother--and postwar #Girlboss--who built, and lost, a Tupperware home-party empire Before Mary Kay, Martha Stewart, and Joy Mangano, there was Brownie Wise, the charismatic Tupperware executive who converted postwar optimism into a record-breaking sales engine powered by American housewives. In Life of the Party, Bob Kealing offers the definitive portrait of Wise, a plucky businesswoman who divorced her alcoholic husband, started her own successful business, and eventually caught the eye of Tupperware inventor, Earl Tupper, whose plastic containers were collecting dust on store shelves. The Tupperware Party that Wise popularized, a master-class in the soft sell, drove Tupperware's sales to soaring heights. It also gave minimally educated and economically invisible postwar women, including some African-American women, an acceptable outlet for making their own money for their families--and for being rewarded for their efforts. With the people skills of Dale Carnegie, the looks of Doris Day, and the magnetism of Eva Peron, Wise was as popular among her many devoted followers as she was among the press, and she become the first woman to appear on the cover of BusinessWeek in 1954. Then, at the height of her success, Wise's ascent ended as quickly as it began. Earl Tupper fired her under mysterious circumstances, wrote her out of Tupperware's success story, and left her with a pittance. He walked away with a fortune and she disappeared--until now. Originally published as Tupperware Unsealed by the University Press of Florida in 2008--and optioned by Sony Pictures, with Sandra Bullock attached to star--this revised and updated edition is perfectly timed to take advantage of renewed interest in this long-overlooked American business icon"--

Cambridge ; Cambridge University Press, 2016
Machine generated contents note: Prologue: a discussion without end, and the nature of this inquiry; 1. The great man and the beginning of contemporary discourse; 2. More who than do and the trait vs. behavior debate; 3. Whistling in the dark and the insertion of power between followers and leaders; 4. The sublime myth and the ideology of purpose; 5.

Globalization and the challenge of complexity; Epilogue: key moments in leadership discourse and a plausible chronological narrative; References; Index.

"In a wide-ranging and provocative new study, Bert A. Spector provides a critical analysis of past and present theories of leadership. Spector asserts that our perception of leadership influences who we vote for, who we hire and promote, and ultimately, who we choose to grant our authority to. Focusing on leadership in discourse, the book sets out to explore how the notion of leadership has been articulated, studied and debated by academics, but also by practitioners, journalists, and others who seek to influence the thoughts of others. Paying particular attention to the social, economic, political, intellectual and historical forces that have helped shape the discussion, Discourse on Leadership offers an insightful historiography of leadership as a concept and how our understanding of it continues to evolve"--

Feeding frenzy : land grabs, price spikes, and the world food crisis
McMahon, Paul author
Vancouver : Greystone Books, [2014]
"Feeding Frenzy traces the history of the global food system and reveals the underlying causes of recent turmoil in food markets. Supplies are running short, prices keep spiking, and the media is full of talk of a 'world food crisis.' The turmoil has unleashed some dangerous forces. Food-producing countries are banning exports even if this means starving their neighbours. Governments and corporations are scrambling to secure control over food supply chains. Powerful groups from the Middle East and Asia are acquiring farmland in poor countries to grow food for export -- what some call 'land grabs.' This raises some big questions. Can we feed a population that will grow to nine billion by 2050? Are we running out of land and water? Can we rely on free markets to provide? This book reveals trends that could lead to more hunger and conflict. But Paul McMahon also outlines actions that can be taken to shape a sustainable and just food system."--Page 4 of cover.

Cumin, camels, and caravans : a spice odyssey
Nabhan, Gary Paul
Berkeley : University of California Press, [2014]
Aromas emanating from the driest of places -- Caravans leaving Arabia Felix -- Uncovering hidden outposts in the desert -- Omanis rocking the cradle of civilization -- Mecca and the migrations of Muslim and Jewish traders -- Going east: merging the spice routes with the Silk Roads -- Selling your wares where the sun goes down -- Building bridges between continents and cultures -- From China to Africa: a steady stream of spice traders -- The beginning of the end: Vasco da Gama and the dubious age of discovery -- The drawbridge across the Eastern ocean.

Gary Paul Nabhan takes the reader on a vivid and far-ranging journey across time and space in this fascinating look at the relationship between the spice trade and culinary imperialism. Drawing on his own family's history as spice traders, as well as travel narratives, historical accounts, and his expertise as an ethnobotanist, Nabhan describes the critical roles that Semitic peoples and desert floras had in setting the stage for globalized spice trade. Traveling along four prominent trade routes--the Silk Road, the Frankincense Trail, the Spice Route, and the Camino Real (for chiles and chocolate)--Nabhan follows the caravans of itinerant spice merchants from the frankincense-gathering grounds and ancient harbors of the Arabian Peninsula to the port of Zayton on the China Sea to Santa Fe in the southwest United States. His stories, recipes, and linguistic analyses of cultural diffusion routes reveal the extent to which aromatics such as cumin, cinnamon, saffron, and peppers became adopted worldwide as signature ingredients of diverse cuisines. Cumin, Camels, and Caravans demonstrates that two particular desert cultures often depicted in constant conflict--Arabs and Jews--have spent much of their history collaborating in the spice trade and suggests how a more virtuous multicultural globalized society may be achieved in the future.
