320.51 CRO 139053
The financial crisis seemed to present a fundamental
challenge to neo-liberalism, the body of ideas that have
constituted the political orthodoxy of most advanced
economies in recent decades. The author argues in this
book that it will shrug off this challenge. The reason is
that while neo-liberalism seems to be about free markets,
in practice it is concerned with the dominance over
public life of the giant corporation. This has been
intensified, not checked, by the recent financial crisis
and acceptance that certain financial corporations are
-too big to fail-. Although much political debate remains
preoccupied with conflicts between the market and the
state, the impact of the corporation on both these is
today far more important.

is composed of three parts that cover: commodity market
dynamics, commodities and the business cycle, and
commodities and fundamental value. The key original
approach to the subject matter lies in a shift away from
the descriptive to the econometric analysis of commodity
markets. Information on market trends of commodities is
presented in the first part, with a strong emphasis on
the quantitative treatment of that information in the
remaining two parts of the book.

role of the state as employer of last resort. The author
argues that full employment of the labor force is the key
to delivering inclusive growth. Full employment is the
most direct way to improve the well-being of the people,
especially of the most disadvantaged. Since unemployment
and underemployment are pervasive in many parts of the
region, Asian leaders must commit to the goal of full
employment. The book also analyzes the region-s

The essays in this book boldly confront the quest for
security arising out of the social, economic,
environmental, and political crises and transformations
of our century. The contributors begin with an expansive,
balanced analysis of the global landscape and the factors
contributing to the growth of insecurity. This book
argues that the superior performance of the Scandinavian
countries arises from their superior systems of social
protection, which allow their citizens to undertake
greater risk and more actively participate in
globalization. This book also examines how these global
changes play out not only in the relations among
countries and the management of globalization but at
every level of our society-- most importantly in our
cities, especially with increasing urbanization.

trading castes in Indian society, and the role of myth as
a repository of socially important knowledge.

This book brings together the best-known and most
influential articles on sensemaking by one of its most
distinguished exponents, the author explores the process
of how organizations discover that they face important
decisions. Often organizations have discussions in order
to see what they think, or act in order to see what they
want - before they are even aware that a decision has to
be made. The effective organization is one that
understands this process of sensemaking and learns to
manage it with wisdom. The ways in which people do that
are demonstrated in chapters of this book. This
collection provides a valuable addition to the
international literature on organization theory.

In this book, author traces the rise and eventual fall of
one of the most successful military commanders in
history. In 325 BCE, Alexander and his conquering army
prepared to return home, after overcoming everything in
their path: armies, terrain, climate, all invariably
hostile. Little did they know that within two years their
beloved king would be dead and their labours seemingly
wasted. Tracing the rise and eventual fall of one of the
most successful military commanders in history, the
author engagingly and with great detail shows us how
Alexander earned his appellation, The Great.
