The world is interconnected through many links. One of the links is economic. The economies of the world are connected via trade and transactions. There is a huge number of transactions taking place on a daily basis between people belonging to different countries. Thus the world is in itself an economy.There are many chances that this economy underperforms due to various reasons. A major reason for this underperformance is a failure of one or other economy inside the world if a country faces a financial downturn it definitely affects other countries also.History shows that there are many cases of such economic crisis that have happened across the globe. These have lasted for years or sometimes decades. Their immediate effects can be easily seen in the economic performance of a country. Almost all the financial institutions get affected in some way or the other. Many of them even fail to sustain. Unemployment rise is also a common outcome of such debt crisis. These crises act as an example and a lesson for future generations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/149799/bk_acx0_149799_sample.mp3.

Hadley is pretty much the model student: straight A's, perfect attendance, front row in class. So what if she's overstressed and overscheduled: She's got school covered. (Life...not so much.) Ms. Pitt is the kind of teacher who wants you to call her by her first name and puts all the chairs in a circle and tells her students to feel their book reports. Hadley wishes Ms. Pitt would stick to her lesson plan. Ms. Pitt wishes Hadley would lighten up. So when Hadley and Ms. Pitt find themselves switched into each other's bodies, the first thing they want to do is switch right back. It takes a family crisis, a baffled principal, and a (double) first kiss to help them figure out that change can be pretty enlightening. Even if it is a little freaky! 1. Language: English.

Following his BusinessWeek best sellers Elizabeth I, CEO and Patton on Leadership comes a new and perfect subject for Alan Axelrod’s innovative format: Winston Churchill, the quintessential leader of the 20th century. Churchill skillfully converted crisis into victory, making the boldest of visions seem attainable; even though he sometimes failed audaciously, he embraced his errors and used them to become stronger. Axelrod looks at this much-studied figure in a way nobody has before: he explores 25 key facets of Churchill’s leadership style and decision-making from his early years as a junior cavalry officer and journalist to his role throughout WWII and demonstrates how he was able to overcome near-impossible obstacles. Fluidly and engagingly written, each lesson is enlivened with a vivid vignette from Churchill’s life. As always, Axelrod’s penetrating analysis will instruct, inspire, and encourage those who lead business enterprises, large and small. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Peterson.

During the onslaught of legal actions during the Savings and Loans crisis of the 1980s, John Smith came to realize the extent of his employer's wrongdoing, and that he too had been one of many deceived. He discovered that you don't have to commit a crime to be convicted of one, and after years of turmoil, he discovered the relief when the FBI finally informed him 15 years after his sentencing that he should never have been prosecuted in the first place.If it can happen to me, it can happen to you. This story is your warning, your red flare. But also, I have learned a deeper lesson: There is much more to this world than we can see or feel or even comprehend. The Abyss is not something you recognize right away. It's a part of you that you don't come in touch with very often. It's the place where you engage in the ultimate struggle for truth, where you ache for a lasting answer. When you touch the Abyss you gather the breath from deep within you, grasp it, embrace it, and hold on for dear life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dean Collins.

Best-selling author and economist Jay W. Richards makes the definitive case for how the free market and individual responsibility can save the American Dream in an age of automation and mass disruption. For two and a half centuries, America has been held together by the belief that if you work hard and conduct yourself responsibly in this country, you will be able to prosper and leave a better life for your children. But over the past decade, that idea has come into crisis. A recession, the mass outsourcing of stable jobs, and a coming wave of automation that will replace millions of blue- and white-collar jobs alike have left many people worried that the game is rigged and that our best days are behind us. In this story-driven manifesto on the future of American work, Jay Richards argues that such thinking is counterproductive - making us more fragile, more dependent, and less equipped to succeed in a rapidly changing economy. If we're going to survive, we need a new model for how ordinary people can thrive in this age of mass disruption. Richards pulls back the curtain on what's really happening in our economy, dispatching myths about capitalism, greed, and upward mobility. And he tells the stories of how real individuals have begun to rebuild a culture of virtue, capitalizing on the skills that are most uniquely human: creativity, resilience, and empathy for the needs of others Destined to take its place alongside classics like Economics in One Lesson, The Human Advantage is the essential book for understanding the future of American work and how each of us can make this era of staggering change work on our behalf. 1.
