The Inner Lives of Markets

Ray Fisman, Tim Sullivan
Authors:
Ray Fisman, Tim Sullivan

THE ECONOMIC REVOLUTION ISN'T JUST DRIVEN BY TECHNOLOGY. IT'S ABOUT MARKETS.'...a quick, and exceedingly engaging, tour of economic history...' Financial TimesThe past twenty-five years have witnessed a remarkable shift in how we get the stuff we want. If you've ever owned a business, rented a flat, or shopped online, you've had a front-row seat for this revolution-in-progress. Breakthrough companies like Amazon and Uber have disrupted the old ways and made the economy work better - all thanks to technology.At least that's how the story of the modern economy is usually told. But in this lucid, wry book, Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan show that the revolution is bigger than tech: it is really a story about the transformation of markets. From the auction theories that power Google's ad sales algorithms to the models that online retailers use to prevent internet fraud, even the most high-tech modern businesses are empowered by theory first envisioned by economists.And we're all participants in this revolution. Every time you book a room on Airbnb, hire a car on Uber, or click on an ad, you too are reshaping our social institutions and our lives.The Inner Lives of Markets is necessary reading for the modern world: it reveals the blueprint for how we work, live, and shop, and offers wisdom for how to do it better.

Leadership Material

Diana Jones
Authors:
Diana Jones

Viewing them as 'touchy feely', intangible and invisible, most leaders separate their personal lives from their professional lives. Diana Jones, an executive coach for 30-years, argues that this is unwise. In fact, the 'soft side' of leadership - empathy, compassion, and authentic communication derived from personal experience - is both powerful and essential to enhancing executive presence, influencing others and achieving results. Through compelling stories and examples taken directly from Jones's coaching sessions with experienced leaders, readers will learn how to make enduring behavioural changes that will produce better business results and create alignment among disparate groups using empathy and leadership language.

Small Data

Martin Lindstrom
Authors:
Martin Lindstrom

The New York Times Bestseller named one of the "Most Important Books of 2016" by Inc, and a Forbes 2016 "Must Read Business Book"'If you love 'Bones' and 'CSI', this book is your kind of candy' Paco Underhill, author of Why We Buy'Martin's best book to date. A personal, intuitive, powerful way to look at making an impact with your work' Seth Godin, author of Purple CowMartin Lindstrom, one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World and a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, harnesses the power of "small data" in his quest to discover the next big thing.In an era where many believe Big Data has rendered human perception and observation 'old-school' or passé, Martin Lindstrom shows that mining and matching technological data with up-close psychological insight creates the ultimate snapshot of who we really are and what we really want. He works like a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, accumulating small clues - the progressively weaker handshakes of Millenials, a notable global decrease in the use of facial powder, a change in how younger consumers approach eating ice cream cones - to help solve a stunningly diverse array of challenges. In Switzerland, a stuffed teddy bear in a teenage girl's bedroom helped revolutionise 1,000 stores - spread across twenty countries - for one of Europe's largest fashion retailers. In Dubai, a distinctive bracelet strung with pearls helped Jenny Craig offset its declining membership in the United States and increase loyalty by 159% in only one year. In China, the look of a car dashboard led to the design of the iRobot, or Roomba, floor cleaner - a great success story.SMALL DATA combines armchair travel with forensic psychology in an interlocking series of international clue-gathering detective stories. It shows Lindstrom using his proprietary CLUES Framework - where big data is merely one part of the overall puzzle - to get radically close to consumers and come up with the counter-intuitive insights that have in some cases helped transform entire industries. SMALL DATA presents a rare behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to create global brands, and reveals surprising and counter-intuitive truths about what connects us all as humans.

Roger Bootle

'This is a credible plan for life outside Europe and deserves to be widely read' The Week - Business Books of the Year FULLY REVISED EDITION FOR THE 2016 UK EU REFERENDUMThe EU hasn't delivered the prosperity and growth it promised; the euro has turned out to be a disaster; and the EU's share of world GDP is set to fall sharply.Moreover, no one is clear what the EU is for, or how 'ever closer union' can be matched with expanding borders and huge disparities of income and culture. The EU is the most important thing that stands between Europe and success.Outside the EU, the UK could thrive, shorn of the EU's regulatory burden and free to develop close trading links with everyone - a truly global Britain. Moreover, BREXIT could provide the spur for the EU either to reform or break up. The UK can lead the way to a better Europe.This updated and expanded Third edition of Roger Bootle's critically acclaimed book includes further material on European reform, mass migration and a major new chapter on the UK referendum and its consequences.
