In The Knowledge Illusion, Sloman and Fernbach show that
our intelligence resides not in individual brains but in
the collective mind. To function, individuals rely not
only on knowledge that is stored within our skulls but
also on knowledge stored elsewhere, be it in our bodies,
in the environment or especially in other people. Put
together, human thought is incredibly impressive, but at
its deepest level it never belongs to any individual
alone. And yet the mind supports the most sublime,
incredible phenomenon of all: consciousness.

333.7932 BAK 145147
The grid is an accident of history and of culture, in no
way intrinsic to how we produce, deliver and consume
electrical power. Yet this is the system the United
States ended up with, a jerry-built structure now so
rickety and near collapse that a strong wind or a hot day
can bring it to a grinding halt. The grid is now under
threat from a new source: renewable and variable energy,
which puts stress on its logics as much as its
components. In entertaining, perceptive, and deeply
researched fashion, cultural anthropologist Gretchen
Bakke uses the history of an increasingly outdated
infrastructure to show how the United States has gone
from seemingly infinite technological prowess to a land
of structural instability.

The Great convergence : information technology and the
new globalization / Richard Baldwin.-- Cambridge: The
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2016.
ISBN : 9780674660489.
337 BAL 145146
Between 1820 and 1990, the share of world income going to
today-s wealthy nations soared from twenty percent to
almost seventy. Since then, that share has plummeted to
where it was in 1900. As Richard Baldwin explains, this
reversal of fortune reflects a new age of globalization
that is drastically different from the old. In the 1800s,
globalization leaped forward when steam power and
international peace lowered the costs of moving goods
across borders. This triggered a self-fueling cycle of
industrial agglomeration and growth that propelled
today-s rich nations to dominance. That was the Great
Divergence. The new globalization is driven by
information technology, which has radically reduced the
cost of moving ideas across borders.

personal values reflect your beliefs, what you care
about. These values, if they really matter to you, are
activated by and through your everyday decisions. How do
you ensure that your values, those that reflect your best

develop a new skill for sales and procurement
professionals and adopt a new practice. Because these
practices are not yet widely adopted as -best practices-,
the authors coin them -next practices-. If these trends
are adopted by organizations, the ability to co-create
means providing significant value to both the sales
