This book brings together some of the finest essays in
the social sciences, written by one of the twentieth
century’s most influential and provocative thinkers.
Albert O. Hirschman was a master essayist, one who
possessed the rare ability to blend the precision of
economics with the elegance of literary imagination. In
an age in which our academic disciplines require ever-
greater specialization and narrowness, it is rare to
encounter an intellectual who can transform how we think
about inequality by writing about traffic, or who can
slip in a quote from Flaubert to reveal something
surprising about taxes. The essays gathered here span an
astonishing range of topics and perspectives, including
industrialization in Latin America, imagining reform as
more than repair, the relationship between imagination
and leadership, routine thinking and the marketplace, and
the ways our arguments affect democratic life.
Throughout, we find humor, unforgettable metaphors,
brilliant analysis, and elegance of style that give
Hirschman such a singular voice.

In The Globalization of Inequality, distinguished
economist and policymaker Francois Bourguignon examines
the complex and paradoxical links between a vibrant world
economy that has raised the living standard of over half
a billion people in emerging nations such as China,
India, and Brazil, and the exponentially increasing
inequality within countries. Exploring globalization-s
role in the evolution of inequality, Bourguignon takes an
original and truly international approach to the decrease
in inequality between nations, the increase in inequality
within nations, and the policies that might moderate
inequality-s negative effects.

Expanding upon the literature of new institutional
economics, the first part of this study stresses the
significance of imperfections in information, bankruptcy
and banks. The second part examines the policy
implications of the new paradigm emphasizing loanable
fund demand and supply, and demonstrates its relevance to
our understanding of two recent historical episodes--the
East Asian financial crisis and the 1991 U.S. recession
and subsequent recovery and boom.

In this book, the author tells the remarkable story of
how, starting two hundred and fifty years ago, some parts
of the world began to experience sustained progress,
opening up gaps and setting the stage for today-s hugely
unequal world. Deaton takes an in-depth look at the
historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and
wealth of nations, and he addresses what needs to be done
to help those left behind. He examines the United States,
a nation that has prospered but is today experiencing
slower growth and increasing inequality. He also
considers how economic growth in India and China has
improved the lives of more than a billion people. He
argues that international aid has been ineffective and
even harmful. He suggests alternative efforts--including
reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade
restrictions--that will allow the developing world to
bring about its own Great Escape.

The numbers one through nine have remarkable mathematical
properties and characteristics. For instance, why do
eight perfect card shuffles leave a standard deck of
cards unchanged? Are there really "six degrees of
separation" between all pairs of people? And how can any
map need only four colors to ensure that no regions of
the same color touch? In Single Digits, Marc Chamberland
takes readers on a fascinating exploration of small
numbers, from one to nine, looking at their history,
applications, and connections to various areas of
mathematics, including number theory, geometry, chaos
theory, numerical analysis, and mathematical physics.

This book addresses the issue of the excellence in
judgment-making, its concept and characterization. The
book investigates first into what constitutes excellent
managerial skills centered on leadership revolving around
judgement-making (rather than decision-making) and second
into whether they can be taught.
