We make up our minds about others after seeing their
faces for a fraction of a second--and these snap
judgments predict all kinds of important decisions. For
example, politicians who simply look more competent are
more likely to win elections. Yet the character judgments
we make from faces are as inaccurate as they are
irresistible, in most situations, we would guess more
accurately if we ignored faces.

Most people in the world today think democracy and gender
equality are good, and that violence and wealth
inequality are bad. But most people who lived during the
10,000 years before the nineteenth century thought just
the opposite. Drawing on archaeology, anthropology,
biology, and history, Ian Morris, author of the best-
selling Why the West Rules--for Now, explains why.

current trends in economic development that emphasize
high tech industry and high levels of human capital. Part

development research into a practical framework of five
dynamic dimensions: empower your residents: begin with
basic education, enhance your community: build on
existing assets, encourage your entrepreneurs, diversify
your economy, and sustain your development.

The First Serious Optimist is an intellectual biography
of the British economist A. C. Pigou (1877-1959), a
founder of welfare economics and one of the twentieth
century-s most important and original thinkers. Though
long overshadowed by his intellectual rival John Maynard
Keynes, Pigou was instrumental in focusing economics on
the public welfare. And his reputation is experiencing a
renaissance today, in part because his idea of
"externalities" or spillover costs is the basis of carbon
taxes. Drawing from a wealth of archival sources, Ian
Kumekawa tells how Pigou reshaped the way the public
thinks about the economic role of government and the way
economists think about the public good.

Latin America 2040 presents a longer term vision of Latin
American society and economies, within which current
policy debates and actions must be anchored. It presents
a set of multigenerational issues that must be tackled
urgently in order for countries in the region to sharply
reduce inequities as well as raise their economic growth
rates. While most Latin American-s have weathered the
latest economic turmoil reasonably well, the fact is that
the region has been underperforming Asia for the past
thirty years. Much of Latin America is mired in the
--middle income trap--.

331.4833720954 BAN 145202
This book is an interdisciplinary and intersectional work
examining the nature of victimhood and agency among women
workers on tea plantations in North Bengal, India. The
author views tea plantations as social spaces, rather
than only economic units of production. Focusing on the
lived experiences of the workers from the perspective of
their multiple identities, the author uses the everyday
as the entry point for understanding the exercise of
agency, the negotiation of different spaces, gender roles
and norms therein, as well as acts of protest.

There can be no doubt that the influence of the financial
sphere has intensified rapidly in recent years, but there
is much debate about the effect of that influence. The
aftermath of the Financial Crisis has led to numerous
discussions of the phenomenon of so-called
financialization: the increasing impact of financial
institutions on the activity of all business entities,
emerging threats related with dynamically developing
financial markets and the growing importance of financial
themes. In light of these issues, which appear in all
economies and touch all entities and every area of
economic activity, there is a need for a summary and
evaluation of the role of financialization in the world

Economic ties between Asia and Latin America are growing
as a part of a global shift toward more South-South
cooperation. Yet trade costs remain high, which may
impede future interregional trade and integration.
Furthermore, an emerging trans-Pacific trade architecture
based on free trade agreements (FTAs) carries risks of a
noodle bowl effect. This book examines new frontiers in
Asia-Latin America integration through interregional
comparative studies in three key areas: trade
facilitation, logistics, and infrastructure, production
networks, supply chains, and small and medium-sized

ISBN : 9780691169026.

Strange Vernaculars delves into how these published works
presented the supposed lexicons of the "common people"
and traces the ways that these languages, once shunned
and associated with outsiders, became objects of
fascination in printed glossaries--from The New Canting
Dictionary to Francis Grose-s Classical Dictionary of the
Vulgar Tongue--and in novels, poems, and songs, including
works by Daniel Defoe, John Gay, Samuel Richardson,
Robert Burns, and others. Janet Sorensen argues that the
recognition and recovery of outsider languages was part
of a transition in the eighteenth century from an
aristocratic, exclusive body politic to a British
national community based on the rhetoric of inclusion and
liberty, as well as the revaluing of a common British

eight perfect card shuffles leave a standard deck of

the same color touch? In Single Digits, Marc Chamber land
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.

he study of management and organization has transitioned
from approaches to deal with steady state management, to
approaches that can cope with unknown or unknowable
futures. The strategy field has moved from business
policy, through strategic planning, onto strategic
management and now grapples with dynamic contexts as the
new normal. In that trend the field has seen a broad
movement in research interests in corporate and
competitive strategies towards an emphasis on the
managers strategic role. Through this shift, strategy has
moved from a concept of something organizations have
towards something that managers do.

This book delves into what constitutes Indianness in the

text of the Bard of Avon-s plays adapted in visual
culture, translation, stage performance and cinema. The
book is an important intervention in the ongoing
explorations in social and cultural history, as it
explores how Shakespeare has impacted the emergence of
regional identities around questions of language and
linguistic empowerment in various ways. It reveals an
extraordinary negotiation of colonial and postcolonial
identity issues--be it in language, in social and
cultural practices or in art forms.
