In 2050 there will be 9.3 billion people alive - compared
with 7 billion today - and the number will still be
rising. And, in 2050 it should be clear whether we are
alone in the universe. What other megachanges can we
expect - and what will their impact be? This
comprehensive and compelling book will cover the most
significant trends that are shaping the coming decades,
with each of its twenty chapters elegantly and
authoritatively outlined by Economist contributors, and
rich in supporting facts and figures. It will chart the
rise and fall of fertility rates across continents, how
energy resources will change in light of new technology,
and how different nations will deal with major

What is the common element linking the right to health
care and the right of free speech, the right to leisure
and the right of free association, the right to work and
the right to be protected? Debates on the rights of man
abound in the media today, but all too often they remain
confused and fail to recognize the fundamental political
conceptions on which they hinge. Several French theorists
have recently attempted a new account of rights, one that
would replace the discredited Marxist view of rights as
mere formalities concealing the realities of class
domination. In this final volume of "Political
Philosophy," Luc Ferry and Alain Renaut summarize these
efforts and put forward their own set of arguments.

The 2008è2009 recession not only destroyed the
professional consensus about the kinds of models required
to understand cyclical fluctuations but also revived the
credit-cycle or asset-bubble explanations of recession
that dominated thinking in the nineteenth century and the
first half of the twentieth century. These -market-
disorder- views emphasize excessive risk taking in
financial markets and the need for government regulation.
The present book argues for the alternative -monetary-
disorder- view of recessions. A review of cyclical
instability over the last two centuries places the 2008-
2009 recession in the monetary-disorder tradition, which
focuses on the monetary instability created by central
banks rather than on a boom-bust cycle in financial

The Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2009 has highlighted
the resilience of the financial markets and broader
economies from the developing world. This outcome owes
much to the bitter experience and economic strategies
developed and implemented at both a national and
international level following the Asian Financial Crisis
of 1997-1998. The objective of this volume is to
investigate and assess the impact and response to the
crisis from an emerging markets perspective including
asset pricing, contagion, financial intermediation,
market structure and regulation. The volume spans four
dimensions: first, a series of background studies offer
explanations of the causes and impacts of the crisis on
emerging markets more generally, then, implications are
considered. The third and final sections provide insights
from regional and country-specific perspectives.

Representing Capital, Fredric Jameson-s first book-length
engagement with Marx-s magnum opus, is a unique work of
scholarship that records the progression of Marx-s
thought as if it were a musical score. These immense
segments overlap each other to combine and develop on new
levels in the same way that capital itself does,
stumbling against obstacles that it overcomes by
progressive expansions, which are in themselves so many
leaps into the unknown. Marx-s fundamental concepts are
not presented philosophically, or in social scientific
terms, but rather as a series of figures produced by the
development of the text.

This book argues that the fundamental underlying problem
in all cases is the ontological shallowness of these
theories, which can only be remedied by attention to
ontological presuppositions. Conversely, a critical
realist approach affords the integration of a realist
political economy into the analysis of the economics of
science that does afford explicit attention to these
crucial questions, a -cultural political economy of
research and innovation- (CPERI). Accordingly, the book
sets out an introduction to the existing literature on
the economics of science together with novel discussion
of the field from a critical realist perspective. In
arguing thus across levels of abstraction, however, the
book also explores how concerted engagement with
substantive social enquiry and theoretical debate
develops and strengthens critical realism as a

economic activities in past and recent periods. It also
speculates on what they are likely or may be forced to do
in future years. The investigation assembles a large set
of statistical information that should prove useful to

In an increasingly globalised world, paradoxically
regional innovation clusters have moved to the forefront
of attention as a strategy for economic and social
development. Transcending international success cases,
like Silicon Valley and Route 128, as sources of lessons,
successful high tech clusters in niche areas have had a
significant impact on peripheral regions. Are these
successful innovation clusters born or made? If they are
subject to planning and direction, what is the shape that
it takes: top down, bottom up or lateral?

This book is a study of aspects of public health in
Bombay Presidency from 1896 to 1930, and is asked upon
extensive primary data. It charts both the changes in the
colonial plague policy, from the deadly epidemic of 1896
to the frequent epidemics that appeared in the 1900s, as
well as the changes in Indian responses to that policy in
different regions of the Presidency. Through a survey of
unique local initiatives by activist health officials,
civic leaders, and Indian doctors, efforts to bring
sanitary consciousness into the public sphere, to promote
preventive measures, and to tackle public health
challenges like tuberculosis become apparent. The
twentieth century witnessed an increasing acceptance of
the idea of hospitalization and thus gave rise to the
expansion of hospital facilities.

demonstrates and discusses the impact of this changing
corporate environment on the role and responsibilities of
the CFO. A more holistic view that integrates business
and financial decisions is required in order to manage
these challenges of globalization. The book shows how the
CFO can adopt and implement this management approach and
thus play a vital role in the firm-s value creation.

A manifesto for a radically different philosophy and
practice of manufacture and environmentalism. "Reduce,
reuse, recycle," urge environmentalists--in other words,
do more with less in order to minimize damage. As this
book argues, however, this approach perpetuates a one-way
"cradle to grave" manufacturing model that casts off as
much as 90 percent of the materials it uses as waste,
much of it toxic. Why not challenge the notion that human
industry must inevitably damage the natural world, they
ask. Products might be designed so that, after their
useful life, they provide nourishment for something new.
Elaborating their principles from experience
(re)designing everything from carpeting to corporate
campuses, the authors make an exciting and viable case

This volume discusses the various socio-economic and
political processes that evolved over centuries in the
vast coastal fringes of India and out of the circuits of
the Indian Ocean, ultimately giving the littoral zones
the distinctive consciousness and identity of Maritime
India. This book dwells upon a wide range of issues,
including the nature of maritime trade of the Sassanids
with India, the impact of maritime trade on the political
processes of Goa, the social processes linked with the
settlements of foreign merchant groups in India, the
nature of the Portuguese expansion in coastal India, and
the nuances of political assertions over maritime centers
of exchange and their hinterlands.
