Summary:

Outraged over the mounting Social Security debt, Cassandra Devine, a charismatic 29-year-old blogger and member of Generation Whatever, incites massive cultural warfare when she politely suggests that Baby Boomers be given government incentives to kill themselves by age 75. Her modest proposal catches fire with millions of citizens, chief among them "an ambitious senator seeking the presidency." With the help of Washington's greatest spin doctor, the blogger and the politician try to ride the issue of euthanasia for Boomers (called "transitioning") all the way to the White House,over the objections of the Religious Right, and of course, the Baby Boomers, who are deeply offended by demonstrations on the golf courses of their retirement resorts.

Summary:

Depuis que j’ai été scié en pleine tournée de promotion d’un livre, pendant l’été 2010, j’ai adoré saisir toutes les chances de me rattraper et de tenir tous les engagements que je peux. Débats, lectures et signatures font partie pour moi de la respiration de la vie. Mais voici ce qui m’est arrivé il y a quelques semaines. Imaginez-moi assis à ma table et voyant approcher une femme d’aspect maternel. Elle : « J’ai été désolée d’apprendre que vous avez été malade. Un cousin à moi aussi a eu un cancer. Moi : Oh ! J’en suis vraiment désolé. Elle (tandis que la queue s’allonge derrière) : Oui, du foie. Moi : Ça n’est jamais bon. Elle : Mais c’est passé, alors que les docteurs lui avaient dit que c’était incurable, puis c’est revenu, et bien pire qu’avant. Moi : Oh, quelle horreur ! Elle : Et puis il est mort. Ça a été atroce. Atroce. Ça n’en finissait pas. Bien sûr, il était homosexuel, depuis toujours. Moi (à court de mots et ne voulant pas être assez bête pour répéter son « bien sûr ») : ... Elle : Toute sa famille proche l’a renié. Il est mort pratiquement seul. Moi : Eh bien, je ne vois vraiment pas ce que je pourrais... Elle : Je voulais juste vous dire que je sais exactement quelle épreuve vous traversez. » Ce fut une rencontre étonnamment épuisante. Du coup, je me suis demandé s’il n’y aurait pas place pour un bref manuel de savoir-vivre en matière de cancer, destiné aussi bien aux malades qu’aux sympathisants.

Summary:

Charley Becker, head of one of America’s biggest conglomerates, is a man on a mission. His only granddaughter, the beloved Natasha, has been found dead in her flat after taking an accidental overdose of cocaine and now he wants revenge. Determined to find the men responsible, Charley starts by tracking down Natasha’s boyfriend, Tim. Then he finds the small-time dealers who supplied him. Charley’s way of doing business leaves no room for negotiation. But ‘wet work’—the shooting of a victim from up close—is only half the story and the further up the chain Charley gets, the higher the stakes become. To nail Peru’s megalomaniac cocaine king, he will have to hire himself some hit men, a gunboat and some truly extraordinary weaponry . . .

Summary:

With a pajama-clad President Reagan refusing to leave the White House on his successor’s Inauguration Day, Buckley has given this farce of Oval Office politics a nearly perfect beginning. Parodying the familiar form of the White House memoir, Buckley recounts the turbulent years of the Democratic Tucker administration, as told by loyalist Herbert Wadlough. Through this former accountant’s eyes, we see the infighting that plagues the White House, the President’s faltering marriage to a former starlet, and his ongoing crises.

Summary:

This is an incredible story. The author, a failed, alcoholic Wall Street trader, had retreated to a monastery. It, too, was failing. Then, one fateful day, Brother Ty decided to let God be his broker--and not only saved the monastery but discovered the 7 1/2 Laws of Spiritual and Financial Growth. Brother Ty's remarkable success has been studied at the nation's leading business schools and scrutinized by Wall Street's greatest minds, but until now the secret to his 7 1/2 Laws of Spiritual and Financial Growth have been available only to a select few: • 87 percent of America's billionaires • 28 recent Academy Award winners • Over half the recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize • No members of the U.S. Congress Now, for the first time, Brother Ty reveals the secrets he has gleaned from the ancient texts of the monks, and tells how you can get God to be your broker. God Is My Broker is the first truly great self-help business novel. Open this book and open your heart. It will change your life.

Summary:

The Financial Crisis has brought the pensions time bomb center stage due to a decade of low returns increasing unfunded pension liabilities and lowering future retirement incomes. This is because most investors have been unable to avoid the substantial volatility in asset prices and capital destruction that has accompanied the business cycle. Until investors reject the prevailing monetary policy consensus as an investment framework based on price stability and general equilibrium, pension schemes will continue to suffer poor returns due to periodic downturns. Alternative credit-based disequilibrium frameworks exist, originating with the work of Knut Wicksell that was subsequently developed by the joint winners of the 1974 Nobel Prize, Friedrich Hayek and Gunnar Myrdal. Credit-based frameworks can measure the extent of disequilibrium in an economy signaling to investors when to switch from equities to bonds and vice versa, thus preserving capital as the business cycle shifts. Empirical analysis on multiple countries demonstrates that investment strategies that track the business cycle generate equity like returns with bond-like volatility. The provision of business cycle tracking funds will therefore at least go some way to defusing the shortfall in pension provision. Profiting from Monetary Policy is a highly innovative book that provides new insights on the business cycle and exposes the flaws in current monetary policy. It advocates a new, credit-based framework which can provide investors with the returns they need whilst eliminating the volatility that has plagued the industry in recent years, and will prove to be an invaluable guide for investors in today's post-crisis landscape.
