Описание: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly. Throughout history, rich and poor countries alike have been lending, borrowing, crashing and recovering their way through an extraordinary range of financial crises. Each time, the experts have chimed, `this time is different` - claiming that the old rules of valuation no longer apply and that the new situation bears little similarity to past disasters. This book proves that premise wrong, covering sixty-six countries across five continents. This is a comprehensive look at the varieties of financial crises, and guides us through eight astonishing centuries of government defaults.

Описание: This book pairs images of abandoned farm places with the plain-spoken recollections of the people who still live in nearby communities.
Actions taken by the United States and other countries during the Great Recession focused on restoring the viability of major financial institutions while guaranteeing debt and stimulating growth. Once the markets stabilized, the United States enacted regulatory reforms that ultimately left basic economic structures unchanged. At the same time, the political class pursued austerity measures to curb the growing national debt. Drawing on the economic theories of Keynes and Minsky and applying them to the modern evolution of American banking and finance, William K. Tabb offers a chilling prediction about future crises and the structural factors inhibiting true reform.
Tabb follows the rise of banking practices and financial motives in America over the past thirty years and the simultaneous growth of a shadow industry of hedge funds, private equity firms, and financial innovations such as derivatives. He marks the shift from an American economy based primarily on the production of goods and nonfinancial services to one characterized by financialization, then shows how these developments, perspectives, and approaches not only contributed to the recent financial crisis but also prevented the enactment of effective regulatory reform. He incisively analyzes the damage that increasing unsustainable debt and excessive risk-taking has done to our financial system and expands his critique to a discussion of world systems and globalization. Revealing the willful blind spots of mainstream finance theory, Tabb moves beyond an economic model reliant on debt expansion and dangerous levels of leverage, proposing instead a social structure of accumulation that places economic justice over profit and, more practically, institutes an inclusive, sustainable model for growth.

Автор: Janet S. K. Watson Название: Fighting Different Wars ISBN: 0521831539 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521831536 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 98290 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The popular idea of the First World War is a story of disillusionment and pointless loss. This vision, however, dates from well after the Armistice. Here, Janet
Watson separates out wartime from retrospective accounts and contrasts war as lived experience - for soldiers, women and non-combatants - with war as memory, comparing men's and
women's responses and tracing the re-creation of the war experience in later writings.
Using a wealth of published and unpublished wartime and retrospective texts, Watson
contends that participants tended to construct their experience - lived and remembered - as either work or service. In fact, far from having a united front, many active participants were
in fact 'fighting different wars', and this process only continued in the decades following peace. Fighting Different Wars is an interesting, richly textured and multi-layered book which will
be compelling reading for all those interested in the First World War.

Название: Marx After Marx: History and Time in the Expansion of Capitalism ISBN: 0231174802 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780231174800 Издательство: Wiley Рейтинг: Цена: 34030 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: This book deprovincializes Marx and the West`s cultural turn by returning to the theorist`s earlier explanations of capital`s origins and development, which followed a trajectory beyond Euro-America to Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Marx`s expansive view shows how local circumstances, time, and culture intervened to reshape capital`s system of production in these regions. Harootunian strips contemporary Marxism of its cultural preoccupation by reasserting the deep relevance of history.

Описание: A Forest of Time is the first introduction for undergraduates, graduates and general readers to the notion that American Indian societies had vital interests in interpreting and transmitting their own histories in their own ways, for themselves. Drawing upon his own varied research as well as sampling the latest in scholarship from ethnohistory, anthropology, folklore and Indian studies, Dr Nabokov offers dramatic examples of how native peoples also put rituals and material culture, landscape, prophecies, and even the English language to the urgent service of keeping the past alive and relevant. Throughout these lively chapters, we also witness the American Indian historical imagination deployed as a coping skill and survival strategy. This book surveys the latest integrating ideas while offering a useful bibliography that opens up, and demands that we engage with, alternative chronicles for America’s multi-cultural past.
