Lectures in macroeconomics : a capitalist economy without
unemployment / Kazimierz aski.-- Oxford: Oxford

This book provides a systematic account of the principle
of aggregate demand based on the work of Polish economist
Michal Kalecki. The lectures demonstrate the importance
of aggregate demand in determining total output and
employment in the capitalist economy. They show how the
investment decisions of firms affect economic growth,
arguing that due to the unstable nature of investment it
is important that the government has a central role in
stabilizing the economy. This English translation of
Kazimierz Laski-s final work brings up to date
fundamental concepts to give a picture of the twenty-
first capitalist economy, and the obstacles that must be
overcome in bringing it to full employment. It introduces
the role of money and finance in the contemporary
capitalist economy, as well as the central role of the
labour market and wages.

Culture shift : a practical guide to managing
organizational culture / Kristy Bashforth.-- London:
Bloomsbury Business, 2019.

This book guides organizations on how to do things
differently, ensuring that culture really does shift
(with minimal budget and no external consultants) and
putting culture permanently at the core of running the
business. It recognises that people do not always make
average assumptions or follow rational logic. Changing a
culture, therefore, is not about telling people what to
do and expecting them to fall neatly in line - it-s about
identifying where they are now and how they make
decisions, in order to help them form new habits to
create a comprehensive, sustainable culture shift. Using
her extensive experience, the author outlines exactly
what it takes to oversee sustainable culture change in an
organization, blending practical tips and illustrative
stories throughout the book to drive home key points and
provide a variety of perspectives and possible outcomes.
