Emotional Intelligence Essentials: A Practical Guide

You're likely to have gone through a day during which you experienced a range of emotions. But do you pay enough attention to these? If you've been taught to suppress your emotions or always to prioritize rational thought above what you feel, it can actually have negative consequences – for you personally, and even in a business context.As you may have deduced, emotions can have enormous power. They can motivate you to act by steering you toward what you desire and away from what you find unpleasant. Even negative emotions like anger can be beneficial by providing you with a stimulus to take productive action.Emotions also help you understand your needs and those of others.And recognizing and taking them into account can help you build strong, healthy relationships and improve your ability to relate to others.To live full, rewarding lives, people need to make use of their minds and their hearts. Intellect and emotion aren't opposed to each other – they work together, informing your perceptions and reactions.Favoring one or the other throws things out of balance.But it's not possible to use emotions to your advantage if you suppress or misinterpret them. So emotional awareness is vital. It involves accurately recognizing your emotions and those of others.A person's emotional intelligence quotient – or EQ for short – is the capacity to reason about emotional information. EQ is increasingly recognized as important in both personal and work environments.Even in business contexts, where rational thought is traditionally valued over emotional skills, research shows that EQ is an important predictor of success.This applies especially in areas where dealing well with others is crucial, like sales. People with high EQs relate better to others, make better use of feedback to develop themselves, and generally possess greater understanding of their environments than those with low EQs.EQ can be divided into four general areas of competence – self-awareness, self-management, empathy, and relationship management.

Negotiation Skills for Sales Professionals: A Practical Guide

What clinches a successful sale? Smooth talk, a warm smile, and a firm handshake might make a good first impression, but clever businesspeople are more concerned with the value you have to offer them. Making a mutually beneficial deal requires careful preparation before you start the negotiation process. Potential customers are more likely to buy from suppliers who understand their needs and have all requisite information at their fingertips.A first step in negotiating successfully is understanding the difference between selling and negotiating. A sale is simply a transaction between seller and buyer, and is the result of closing a deal.Negotiation, however, involves defining the terms of the deal – who gets what in exchange for what.

In this book, you'll learn more about each of these activities and how to approach them.Ultimately, this book will equip you to complete the first steps in making effective, long-lasting, and profitable sales agreements with your customers.Consider a sales manager at a small graphic design company who's competing for projects with other design companies in the same city. Whenever he meets with a potential client, he names a higher price than his competitors and refuses to bargain. Needless to say, he fails to attract new clients and the design company goes out of business. The sales manager should have realized that successful sales negotiations are about give and take – or what's called the careful exchange of value.By nature, a sales negotiation involves two parties with different goals trying to reach a mutually acceptable agreement.With good negotiation skills, you'll be able to facilitate this process and ensure you and the other party reach agreement. You'll also be able to influence the proceedings so that the outcome is more favorable to you than to your negotiation partner.The four stages of the sales negotiation process are preparation, presentation, value exchange, and closing.

Managing Organizational Change: A Practical Guide

How does a company survive for over 100 years? Chances are the answer to that question is never going to be "by doing the same thing it has always done." Typically, corporate survivors have long histories of innovation in both products and business practices. Company history probably includes consolidations, mergers, acquisitions, liquidations, and diversifications, as well as numerous ramp-ups and subsequent layoffs. So the real answer to the question of how a company survives is likely to be "by changing."For modern companies to survive, even in the short term, change is no longer an option – it's a requirement. In an age where global communication is instantaneous and technological innovations are constant, an organization's ability to change becomes one of its key assets.Consider how many times things have changed in your work environment in the last few years or even the last few months. How did those changes impact you and your coworkers? Chances are the changes were quite different in each case, with more or less resistance and greater or lesser success. There are different types of organizational change, ranging from incremental improvements to complete overhauls. There are many different methods for dealing with change as well.This book presents the fundamentals of organizational change, including what is meant by change. The time-honored model of change developed by social psychologist Kurt Lewin in the early part of the twentieth century is used to explain the different phases of change as well as the actions to take in each.One topic details the two broad categories of organizational change: evolutionary change and transformational change. Within these categories, you'll learn how to distinguish between strategic adjustments, strategic reorientations, and organizational transformations.Finally, this book covers some of the different theoretical approaches for managing organizational change and the practical application of combining strategies for greater effect.You'll also learn about weighing the various factors affecting change strategy, such as the time frame and extent of the change, the potential resistance within the organization, and the risks involved.It's becoming more and more important to know how to effectively implement change, and how to make your organization more readily changeable.As a leader, you will be required to manage or lead organizational change throughout your career. A good understanding of change fundamentals will serve as a strong foundation from which to craft your change strategies.Good leaders know that success is directly related to the support of those they're leading. If you're going to lead organizational change, you need to know how to build support for the change.Organizational change requires people to change – potentially the way they work, think, their habits, routine, and schedule. Faced with change, especially where their livelihood is concerned, people can react negatively; they may get anxious and defensive. Feelings are affected. As a leader, you need to manage your employees' feelings in the best interest of the organizational change.So how do you gain support in the face of almost certain resistance? Through open and honest communication. Involve your employees in the change by inviting their input, and listening to and considering what they say. Employees are a valuable source of information. And involving them demonstrates you value their opinion and respect their contributions, which will build support for the change.This book explores tips, techniques, and strategies that will help you successfully build support for change in your organization.Promoting support for organizational change will require you to motivate, listen, and support your employees through the change.

How to Think Bigger: Aim Higher, Get More Motivated, and Accomplish Big Things

How to Get More Motivated, Set Bigger Goals, and Achieve More by Thinking BiggerHave you ever wondered what separates people who think bigger from people who set their bar low? What makes one person accept low standards and another person to constantly raise them?Why does one person strive to build an international organization affecting the lives of millions of people, while another person is content working her entire life as a clerk? (Not that there’s anything wrong with being a clerk!)Why is one person challenging herself to run marathons, train her body and get fitter, while another is happy living a sedentary, unhealthy lifestyle?What drives a person who’s optimizing every single aspect of her life and what causes another person to maintain the status quo?You can say, “Well, the answer is simple enough – one person is ambitious, while the other one is not.” But what exactly causes it? And most importantly – how do you become more ambitious and think bigger? Is it something you’re born with and can’t change, or is it something over which you have control?I found this topic so fascinating I decided to find out the answer for myself and write a book about it. This book is the result of my research about people who think big and the science of being more ambitious.Here are just some of the things you will learn from the book:- What key things you need to inspire yourself to think bigger, and more importantly, achieve your big goals.- Why you need a “why,” and what kind of motivators will set you up for success (hint: attaining money or status are some of the least motivating goals possible).- The single most important thing to thinking bigger. If you don’t have it in your life, you will sabotage your efforts – guaranteed.- What the chimp is and why you need to learn how to control it to get yourself motivated and work on your big goals. You can be making things hard for yourself without being aware of it.- How to cultivate the art of strategic laziness to achieve more while doing much less than other people (why work so hard if you can get better results by being lazy?).- The seven most important triggers of flow – a state of perfect focus where the magic happens.- The secret of achieving the impossible is not really such a secret, but most people tend to forget about it and get overwhelmed by their goals.I wrote this book to increase my motivation, teach myself how to think bigger and learn how to raise my standards. I hope the answer I found will help you as much as it has helped me.You can also learn how to find motivation to become the best version of you. Scroll up and buy the book now.

The Wealth of Nations

The Wealth of Nations, is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. First published in 1776, the book offers one of the world's first collected descriptions of what builds nations' wealth and is today a fundamental work in classical economics. Through reflection over the economics at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution the book touches upon such broad topics as the division of labour, productivity and free markets. The Wealth of Nations is a clearly written account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. The book was a landmark work in the history and economics as it was comprehensive and an accurate characterization of the economic mechanisms at work in modern economics. Smith believed in a Meritocracy. Smith emphasized the advancement that one could take based on their will to better themselves. This is simply one of the most important books ever written on the subject of economics.

Investing for Beginners: A Short Read on the Basics of Investing and Dividends (investing 101, Investing for Dummies, Money, Power, Elon Musk, Tony Robbins, Entrepreneur, Banking Book 4)

Most people believe that the true key to becoming ultra-wealthy lies in some sort of "secret," a kind of well-kept secret that's extremely "hush-hush," and only realized by a small amount of the elite, or a privileged few. But, actually, this isn't the case at all. In fact, these super-rich individuals realize that their money needs to work for them and so they learn how to take what are known as "calculated" risks.The super-rich are definitely not psychics, nor do they have a "magic" secret that they hold close to their own kind. In fact, their real secret lies in the fact that they know what simple investing mistakes should be avoided. And, in truth, these mistakes are common knowledge, even among those investors who are not particularly wealthy at all.Investing properly is a guided, purposeful tool for building and adding to wealth, but it is not only for the rich. Actually, anyone can get started quite easily, and there are multiple avenues that make it easy to begin, with small amounts to start up a portfolio. Additionally, what differentiates using investment (as opposed to gambling) is that it takes a period of time for the "magic" to happen. Therefore, it is not a get-rich-quick scheme, at all. I want us to be clear on that point from the get-go.By the end of this book, you'll have a great understanding of what investing is, and you will know how the magic of compounding works too. We'll take a look at other options that you might find useful, so then you'll have the knowledge you need before you get started with your own investing. Again, thank you for joining me here; it's my pleasure to guide you through this important information. I believe that knowledge is power, and I hope that you'll feel more comfortable once you get the real gist of how it all works, and how it can work really well for you.

Hayek, Mill and the Liberal Tradition (Routledge Studies in the History of Economics Book 121)

A PDF version of this book is available for free in open access via www.tandfebooks.com as well as the OAPEN Library platform, www.oapen.org. It has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 3.0 license and is part of the OAPEN-UK research project.This book considers the relationship between Hayek and Mill, taking issues with Hayek’s criticism of Mill and providing a broader perspective of the liberal tradition. Featuring contributions from the likes of Ross Emmett, Leon Montes and Robert Garnett, these chapters ask whether Hayek had an accurate reading of the ideas of Mill and Smith, as well as considering themes such as sympathy and analytical egalitarianism that play a large part in the liberal tradition, but less in work of Hayek These chapters argue that addition of these key ideas to the Hayekian corpus leads to a far broader understanding of the liberal tradition than that provided by Hayek

Inside the Robe: A Judge's Candid Tale of Criminal Justice in America

Have you ever wondered what a judge is really thinking? To most people, judges are mysterious creatures. Judge Mader shines a bright spotlight on the hidden folds of the judging world. The old saying is that judges merely "follow the law." Yet following the law can produce wildly different results depending upon each judge's background, politics, and life experiences. Even the floor of the courthouse to which a case is assigned can mean the difference between prison and freedom.From her perch behind the bench, Judge Mader witnesses a parade of drug addicts, gang members, mentally ill defendants, pricey private attorneys, jaded prosecutors, and true-believer public defenders. Never before has the judging world been laid bare for all to see."This book literally held me hostage until the last page." --author Michael Connelly

Bitcoin and Beyond: Cryptocurrencies, Blockchains, and Global Governance (RIPE Series in Global Political Economy)

Since the launch of Bitcoin in 2009 several hundred different ‘cryptocurrencies’ have been developed and become accepted for a wide variety of transactions in leading online commercial marketplaces and the ‘sharing economy’, as well as by more traditional retailers, manufacturers, and even by charities and political parties. Bitcoin and its competitors have also garnered attention for their wildly fluctuating values as well as implication in international money laundering, Ponzi schemes and online trade in illicit goods and services across borders. These and other controversies surrounding cryptocurrencies have induced varying governance responses by central banks, government ministries, international organizations, and industry regulators worldwide. Besides formal attempts to ban Bitcoin, there have been multifaceted efforts to incorporate elements of blockchains, the peer-to-peer technology underlying cryptocurrencies, in the wider exchange, recording, and broadcasting of digital transactions. Blockchains are being mobilized to support and extend an array of governance activities. The novelty and breadth of growing blockchain-based activities have fuelled both utopian promises and dystopian fears regarding applications of the emergent technology to Bitcoin and beyond. This volume brings scholars of anthropology, economics, Science and Technology Studies, and sociology together with GPE scholars in assessing the actual implications posed by Bitcoin and blockchains for contemporary global governance. Its interdisciplinary contributions provide academics, policymakers, industry practitioners and the general public with more nuanced understandings of technological change in the changing character of governance within and across the borders of nation-states.

Globalization and Capitalist Geopolitics: Sovereignty and state power in a multipolar world (Rethinking Globalizations Book 60)

Globalization and Capitalist Geopolitics is concerned with the nature of corporate power against the backdrop of the decline of the West and the struggle by non-western states to challenge and overcome domination of the rest of the world by the West. This book argues that although the US continues to preside over a quasi-imperial system of power based on global military preponderance and financial statecraft, and remains reluctant to recognize the realities global economic convergence, the age of imperial state hegemony is giving way to a new international order characterized by capitalist sovereignty and competition between regional and transnational concentrations of economic power.This title seeks to interrogate the structure of world order by examining leading approaches to globalization and political economy in international relations and international political economy. Breaking with the classical school, Woodley argues that geopolitics should be understood as a transnational strategic practice employed by powerful state actors, which mirrors predatory corporate rivalry for control over global resources and markets, reproducing the structural conditions for corporate power through the transnational state form of capital.In a period of increasing geopolitical insecurity and economic instability this title provides an authoritative yet accessible commentary on debates on capitalism and globalization in the wake of the financial crisis. It is valuable resource for students and scholars seeking to develop a deeper understanding of the historical determinants of the changing dynamics of neoliberal capitalism and their implications for world order.

The Essential Hayek (Essential Scholars)

Nobel laureate economist F.A.Hayek firstt revolutionized economists' understanding of markets, and then profoundly challenged the public's understanding of government. Hayek is one of only a few social scientists over the past 200 years who thoroughly rethought the relationship between individual people and both the market and the state. While countless works have discussed the importance of Hayek and his ideas, none have focused on making his core ideas accessible to average people. This volume highlights and explains Hayek's basic insights in plain language to ensure that his critical ideas about the nature of society are both accessible and enduring.

The Way to Wealth: Ben Franklin on Money and Success

Benjamin Franklin’s writings have inspired millions throughout the years, and his advice on how to earn and save money is timeless. "The Way to Wealth" was an essay written by Benjamin Franklin in 1758. He was on a journey to England and resented the time wasted waiting for the ship to sail (it was anchored in New York for 2 weeks) that he began collecting adages and advice from 25 years worth of publication of Poor Richard’s Alamanac (Spelled Alamanack at the time). Because the poor man couldn’t afford books, he would spend his earnings on yearly almanacs filled with astrology, jokes, stories, and other works of amusement. In Poor Richard’s Alamanac, Franklin copied some of the more popular pieces of advice, slightly modified, and also included original works of his own.

Entrepreneur: Entrepreneur Mind sets and Habits to Live Your Dreams (Business, Money, Power, Mindset, Elon musk, Self help, Financial Freedom Book 1)

Quick Read on some of the Mind Sets and Habits of Entrepreneurs! This has actionable information on how to unleash the full power of a successful entrepreneur within you.The world’s most famous saying today has to be “everyone can be an entrepreneur”. Like most sayings, it is largely on the money, excuse the pun. Yet, like a lot of sayings, there is some distillation to be done before you can take the words at face value. Sure enough, you do not need fancy academic papers to succeed at business. You do not need to come from money to have a shot at being a successful entrepreneur. That’s not all; there is no standard to adhere to, to make it in business. What you mostly need is the “stuff of life”; you need a strong mental core; you need grit, determination and a propensity to take risks. And yet, this is perhaps what makes entrepreneurship perhaps the hardest field of them all. The field is full of turbulence; more often than not, it is hard to predict how tomorrow will shape up as a businessman. It may take you two decades or two years to see real success. This may explain why so many people fail in their startups (more than 90% of startups don’t get to celebrate their 5th birthday!).Well, you don’t have to set yourself up for failure while starting your next big business. To ensure you start on a good footing, this book will dissect the mindsets of some of the most successful people that have ever lived. It will teach you the “stuff of life” and the mindset that you need to succeed in the business world, and offer it in a format that you can easily understand as an aspiring businessman.

The Amazing Journey of Reason: from DNA to Artificial Intelligence (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)

Organisms, or organized, living, systems. What's their origin? Why and how did they evolve? The Amazing Journey of Reason analyses the evolution of  complex structures in the universe -from the subatomic particles after the Big Bang onwards- in order to understand the emergence of today's interconnected society.  Artificial Intelligence, it concludes, is just the final step of a journey which started with DNA, itself the first Information and Communication Technology devised by nature on planet earth. What we are living today is the formation of the distributed nervous system of a metaorganism, in which human beings are the cells. A reassuring environment for us, but one where each individual will count increasingly less. A hugely complex, world-wide organism which makes Homo, while more communicans, also increasingly less sapiens.

Budgeting Planner 2021: Tips To Start Your Financial Year Off Strong

Budgeting is the process of creating a plan to spend your money. This spending plan is called a budget. Creating this spending plan allows you to determine in advance whether you will have enough money to do the things you need to do or would like to do. Budgeting is simply balancing your expenses with your income. Budgeting is the most important financial tool you can have to manage your money. It’s also the biggest obstacle to achieving financial independence and freedom. The first step toward budgeting is creating a spending plan. Start by writing down all of the money you make. Next, figure out how much you spend every month on necessities like housing, food, and utilities. Then list anything you buy that is not a necessity, such as a car, vacation, clothes, or takeout food.Next decide if you are saving any money for the future. Finally, calculate how much is left over to spend on entertainment or to pay off debt (not including your mortgage). As a budgeting tool, the spending plan you just created is called a "budget". There are different kinds of budgets.You could also call it a "spending plan." Remember that the plan you create is your way of managing your money. The most important consideration when creating or modifying your budget is understanding how much money you have available to spend. Budgeting may feel like a big deal, but it doesn’t have to be difficult or even time-consuming.The first step is to decide how much you make every month. Next, list the things you must spend your money on. This includes housing and bills. It also includes food and transportation, which are called "necessities" because if you don't spend money on them, your health or life will be in danger. The next step is to list all of the things that you want but don't absolutely need.This can be hard because it will show how much money you really have to spend each month.For example, a person may want to buy a new car, but there's not enough money in his or her budget to buy it. This means that the person has enough money left over after paying for necessities and wants things like a new car. This is called "wanting" something that you don't have.Still having enough money left over is called "having" something that you don't need. Finally, list all of your debts. Now you have everything you need to create your budget. This book will help you make your spending plan work for you. A budget is only useful if you use it to manage your money.

Time is not infinite: 12 principles to make the best use of your time

In the last decade alone, I have collaborated with many owners, CEOs, Managing Directors and Company Managers who often worked as though their time was infinite. I saw them spending more and more time with their team in the office until their week became highly laborious. They would only leave the office to eat and sleep. I don’t mean to say that we should only work from 9 to 5, 5 days a week and then completely ignore our work on weekends. I know that sometimes we have to put in the extra hours to meet our deadlines and achieve our targets; however, when this becomes the norm, it means that we need to consider alternatives such as working smarter rather than harder. This is the reason why I am writing this book Dedicated to all Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, CEOs, Managing Directors and Company Managers who think that every working day should be 48 hours, during which the need to eat, sleep and socialize is nonexistent.  To all those who wait for the weekend just to rest...I, too, was one of them so many years back!

Rental Property Investment: A Complete Guide To Investing In Rental Properties

Every year, more and more people are learning to invest in the real estate market. Flipping houses is something that is a popular way to earn extra money. However, what if you could invest money that isn’t yours? What if that money gave you a great return on the initial investment? That’s where the rental market comes in. With the right investment, you cannot only finance your own career with other people’s money, but you can invest for the future. There are so many stories circulating about property investment. It’s not at all surprising since people who are hitting the headlines at this time, such as Donald Trump, made their fortunes from humble beginnings and indeed used money from other people to do so. This book explains how this is done and lays out a very easy to follow format that will help you to do the same thing. You may doubt your ability to ever be in the same league as Donald Trump but he wasn’t always rich. His astute management of the money loaned to him by his father was the beginning of a successful career in real estate. My book gives you pointers about planning your investment. It details how to go about finding the funding. It also explains how to assess the properties that you see as potential money pots, so that you go forward with your planning in a way that is more likely to allow you the benefits of success. The book is based upon vast experience in the real estate market and I am sharing this with readers because the potential is there for everyone who uses common sense approach. Throughout the pages of the book, you will find useful information on potential sources of revenue to keep your business afloat – until such time as you are able to re-invest and keep all of the profits for yourself. You will also be able to build up a reasonable income for your retirement, so that you are no longer dependent upon pensions that are constantly going down in value. Thus, investing in rentable real estate makes perfect sense and when you are able to do this with other people’s money, it makes even more sense. All it will cost you is the time needed to research and to be sure that the investments you are making are sound. Your realistic approach, aided by real estate experts, will ensure that your business is a success.

The Workplace of the Future: The Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Precariat and the Death of Hierarchies (Routledge Studies in the Economics of Innovation)

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a global development that shows no signs of slowing down. In his book, The Workplace of the Future: The Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Precariat and the Death of Hierarchies, Jon-Arild Johannessen sets a chilling vision of how robots and artificial intelligence will completely disrupt and transform working life. The author contests that once the dust has settled from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, workplaces and professions will be unrecognizable and we will see the rise of a new social class: the precariat. We will live side by side with the 'working poor' – people who have several jobs, but still can’t make ends meet. There will be a small salaried elite consisting of innovation and knowledge workers. Slightly further into the future, there will be a major transformation in professional environments. Johannessen also presents a typology for the precariat, the uncertain work that is created and develops a framework for the working poor, as well as for future innovation and knowledge workers, and sets out a new structure for the social hierarchy.A fascinating and thought-provoking insight into the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, The Workplace of the Future will be of interest to professionals and academics alike. The book is particularly suited to academic courses in management, economy, political science and social sciences.

Blockchain and Crypto Currency: Building a High Quality Marketplace for Crypto Data (Economics, Law, and Institutions in Asia Pacific)

This open access book contributes to the creation of a cyber ecosystem supported by blockchain technology in which technology and people can coexist in harmony. Blockchains have shown that trusted records, or ledgers, of permanent data can be stored on the Internet in a decentralized manner. The decentralization of the recording process is expected to significantly economize the cost of transactions.Creating a ledger on data, a blockchain makes it possible to designate the owner of each piece of data, to trade data pieces, and to market them. This book examines the formation of markets for various types of data from the theory of market quality proposed and developed by M. Yano. Blockchains are expected to give data itself the status of a new production factor. Bringing ownership of data to the hands of data producers, blockchains can reduce the possibility of information leakage, enhance the sharing and use of IoT data, and prevent data monopoly and misuse.The industry will have a bright future as soon as better technology is developed and when a healthy infrastructure is created to support the blockchain market.

Finding Fulfilling Work: A self-coaching guide

How to find fulfilling work is one of the most urgent questions in modernity. A question that we all face, particularly living in expensive, competitive and hectic urban environments. This basic question of modern life is, then, one that we really ought to consider if we are to live well. In this self-coaching guide, I offer a simple framework for engaging in this enquiry. A framework that is built around four fundamental questions, whose exploration almost certainly will yield a conclusion. These ideas were born out of numerous career-related sessions I have done as a coach over the past 5 years. And, out of my own experience of seeking fulfilling work and deciding to go solo after 9 years in the City as a Private Equity investor. The four questions explored here are: 1) What are my real motivations for working? 2) What would I do if money wasn’t a problem? 3) How will I put food on the table? 4) What do I definitely NOT want to do? Together, they form a guide for creating your own personal path towards fulfilling work.

The Essential Milton Friedman (Essential Scholars)

When economists are called “influential,” it usually means they’ve changed the way other economists think. By that standard, Milton Friedman was one of the most influential economists of all time. He revolutionized the way economiststhink about consumption, about money, about stabilization policy, and about unemployment. He demonstrated the power of committing oneself to a few simple assumptions about human behaviour and then relentlessly pursuing their logical implications. He developed and taught new ways of interpreting data, testing his theories by their ability to explain multiple disparate phenomena. His successes were spectacular and his techniques were widely emulated. It would take several large volumes to do justice to Friedman’s extraordinary contributions to economic theory, economic practice, economic policy, and economic literacy. The few brief chapters that follow will give an overview of what those volumes might contain.

Development Discourse and Global History: From colonialism to the sustainable development goals (Routledge Explorations in Development Studies)

The manner in which people have been talking and writing about ‘development’ and the rules according to which they have done so have evolved over time.Development Discourse and Global History uses the archaeological and genealogical methods of Michel Foucault to trace the origins of development discourse back to late colonialism and notes the significant discontinuities that led to the establishment of a new discourse and its accompanying industry. This book goes on to describe the contestations, appropriations and transformations of the concept. It shows how some of the trends in development discourse since the crisis of the 1980s – the emphasis on participation and ownership, sustainable development and free markets – are incompatible with the original rules and thus lead to serious contradictions. The Eurocentric, authoritarian and depoliticizing elements in development discourse are uncovered, whilst still recognizing its progressive appropriations. The author concludes by analysing the old and new features of development discourse which can be found in the debate on Sustainable Development Goals and discussing the contribution of discourse analysis to development studies. This book is aimed at researchers and students in development studies, global history and discourse analysis as well as an interdisciplinary audience from international relations, political science, sociology, geography, anthropology, language and literary studies.

Cultures, Citizenship and Human Rights (Routledge Advances in Sociology)

In Cultures, Citizenship and Human Rights the combined analytical efforts of the fields of human rights law, conflict studies, anthropology, history, media studies, gender studies, and critical race and postcolonial studies raise a comprehensive understanding of the discursive and visual mediation of migration and manifestations of belonging and citizenship. More insight into the convergence – but also the tensions – between the cultural and the legal foundations of citizenship, has proven to be vital to the understanding of societies past and present, especially to assess processes of inclusion and exclusion. Citizenship is more than a collection of rights and privileges held by the individual members of a state but involves cultural and historical interpretations, legal contestation and regulation, as well as an active engagement with national, regional, and local state and other institutions about the boundaries of those (implicitly gendered and raced) rights and privileges. Highlighting and assessing the transformations of what citizenship entails today is crucially important to the future of Europe, which both as an idea and as a practical project faces challenges that range from the crisis of legitimacy to the problems posed by mass migration. Many of the issues addressed in this book, however, also play out in other parts of the world, as several of the chapters reflect. This book is available for free in PDF format as Open Access from the individual product page at www.routledge.com.

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in levels of penalty, played an important role within the broader capital punishment system well into the nineteenth century. While eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century historians have extensively studied the ‘Bloody Code’ and the resulting interactions around the ‘Hanging Tree’, they have largely ignored an important dimension of the capital punishment system – the courts extensive use of aggravated and post-execution punishments. With this book, Peter King aims to rectify this neglected historical phenomenon.

Guilt by Accusation: The Challenge of Proving Innocence in the Age of #MeToo

A Wall Street Journal Besteller! Alan Dershowitz, one of America’s most respected legal scholars and a New York Times bestselling author proves—with incontrovertible evidence—that he is entirely innocent of the sexual misconduct accusations against him, while suggesting a roadmap for how such allegations should be handled in a just society.  “Maybe the question isn’t what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it’s what happened to everyone else.”—Politico Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by Politico and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by Newsweek. Yet he has come under intense criticism for applying those same principles, and his famed “shoe‑on‑the‑other‑foot test,” to those accused of sexual misconduct. In Guilt by Accusation, Dershowitz provides an in‑depth analysis of the false accusations against him, alongside a full presentation of the exculpatory evidence that proves his account, including emails from his accuser and an admission of his innocence from her lawyer, David Boies. Additionally, he examines current attitudes toward accusations of sexual misconduct, which are today, in the age of #MeToo, accepted as implicit truth without giving the accused a fair chance to defend themselves and their innocence, and suggests possible pathways back to a society and legal system in which due process is respected above public opinion and the whims of social media mobs. This book is Alan Dershowitz’s plea for fairness for both accuser and accused, his principled stand for due process no matter the allegation, and his compelling assertion of his own innocence. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the inside story behind the accusations against him or who cares about the current societal debate over how we should handle accusations of sexual misconduct. The #MeToo movement has generally been a force for good, but as with many good movements, it is being exploited by some bad people for personal profit. Supporters of the #MeToo movement must not allow false accusers to hurt real victims by hiding behind its virtuous shield, turning it into an exploitive sword against innocent people.

The Psychology of Silicon Valley: Ethical Threats and Emotional Unintelligence in the Tech Industry

Misinformation. Job displacement. Information overload. Economic inequality. Digital addiction. The breakdown of democracy, civility, and truth itself.This open access book explores the conscious and unconscious norms, values, and characteristics that drive behaviors within the high-tech capital of the world, Silicon Valley, and the sector it represents. In an era where the reach and influence of a single industry has the potential to define the future of our world, it has become apparent just how little we know about the organizations driving these changes. The Psychology of Silicon Valley offers a revealing look inside the mind of world’s most influential industry and how the identity, culture, myths, and motivations of Big Tech are harming society. The book argues that the bad values and lack of emotional intelligence borne in the vacuum of Silicon Valley will have lasting consequences on everything from social equality to the future of work to our collective mental health. Katy Cook expertly walks us through the psychological landscape of Silicon Valley, including its leadership, ethical, and cultural problems, and artfully explains why we cannot afford to ignore the psychology and values that are behind our technology any longer.

The Economics of Discontent: From Failing Elites to The Rise of Populism

The social contract that has underpinned growth and political stability in the Western world since World War II has broken down. Houses, health care and higher education have become unaffordable to a majority of people, while the burden of unregulated monopolies, globalization and uncontrolled immigration has fallen disproportionately on the lower and middle classes.Wrapped in political correctness, an increasingly out of touch Western elite continues catering to special interests and fails to grasp the urgency for change. Populist movements harnessing public anger appear unable to propose and implement effective solutions.The last financial crisis was bad enough. But the next crisis will spread deeper and wider. And yet we stand economically, politically and most of all intellectually unprepared.This book is the story of how we have arrived at the brink of disaster and how we can move away from the win-lose policies of recent decades to restore much-needed balance.

Data Privacy and Trust in Cloud Computing: Building trust in the cloud through assurance and accountability (Palgrave Studies in Digital Business & Enabling Technologies)

This open access book brings together perspectives from multiple disciplines including psychology, law, IS, and computer science on data privacy and trust in the cloud. Cloud technology has fueled rapid, dramatic technological change, enabling a level of connectivity that has never been seen before in human history. However, this brave new world comes with problems. Several high-profile cases over the last few years have demonstrated cloud computing's uneasy relationship with data security and trust. This volume explores the numerous technological, process and regulatory solutions presented in academic literature as mechanisms for building trust in the cloud, including GDPR in Europe. The massive acceleration of digital adoption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic is introducing new and significant security and privacy threats and concerns. Against this backdrop, this book provides a timely reference and organising framework for considering how we will assure privacy and build trust in such a hyper-connected digitally dependent world. This book presents a framework for assurance and accountability in the cloud and reviews the literature on trust, data privacy and protection, and ethics in cloud computing.

Principles of Accounting, Volume 1: Financial Accounting

Principles of Accounting is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of a two-semester accounting course that covers the fundamentals of financial and managerial accounting. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, we are offering the book in two volumes. This book is specifically designed to appeal to both accounting and non-accounting majors, exposing students to the core concepts of accounting in familiar ways to build a strong foundation that can be applied across business fields. Each chapter opens with a relatable real-life scenario for today’s college student. Thoughtfully designed examples are presented throughout each chapter, allowing students to build on emerging accounting knowledge. Concepts are further reinforced through applicable connections to more detailed business processes. Students are immersed in the “why” as well as the “how” aspects of accounting in order to reinforce concepts and promote comprehension over rote memorization.

Envy, Poison, & Death: Women on Trial in Classical Athens

This is an open access title available under the terms of a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 licence. It is free to read at Oxford Scholarship Online and offered as a free PDF download from OUP and selected open access locations.At the heart of this volume are three trials held in Athens in the fourth century BCE. The defendants were all women and in each case the charges involved a combination of ritual activities. Two were condemned to death. Because of the brevity of the ancient sources, and their lack of agreement, the precise charges are unclear, and the reasons for taking these women to court remain mysterious.Envy, Poison, and Death takes the complexity and confusion of the evidence not as a a riddle to be solved, but as revealing multiple social dynamics. It explores the changing factors—material, ideological, and psychological—that may have provoked these events. It focuses in particular on the dual role of envy (phthonos) and gossip as processes by which communities identified people and activities that were dangerous, and examines how and why those local, evenindividual, dynamics may have come to shape official civic decisions during a time of perceived hardship.At first sight so puzzling, these trials reveal a vivid picture of the socio-political environment of Athens during the early-mid fourth century BCE, including responses to changes in women's status and behaviour, and attitudes to ritual activities within the city. The volume reveals some of the characters, events, and even emotions that would help to shape an emergent concept of magic: it suggests that the boundary of acceptable behaviour was shifting, not only within the legal arena but alsothrough the active involvement of society beyond the courts.

Consumption Corridors: Living a Good Life within Sustainable Limits (Routledge Focus on Environment and Sustainability)

Consumption Corridors: Living a Good Life within Sustainable Limits explores how to enhance peoples’ chances to live a good life in a world of ecological and social limits. Rejecting familiar recitations of problems of ecological decline and planetary boundaries, this compact book instead offers a spirited explication of what everyone desires: a good life. Fundamental concepts of the good life are explained and explored, as are forces that threaten the good life for all. The remedy, says the book’s seven international authors, lies with the concept of consumption corridors, enabled by mechanisms of citizen engagement and deliberative democracy. Across five concise chapters, readers are invited into conversation about how wellbeing can be enriched by social change that joins "needs satisfaction" with consumerist restraint, social justice, and environmental sustainability. In this endeavour, lower limits of consumption that ensure minimal needs satisfaction for all are important, and enjoy ample precedent. But upper limits to consumption, argue the authors, are equally essential, and attainable, especially in those domains where limits enhance rather than undermine essential freedoms. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars in the social sciences and humanities, and environmental and sustainability studies, as well as to community activists and the general public.

Global History with Chinese Characteristics: Autocratic States along the Silk Road in the Decline of the Spanish and Qing Empires 1680-1796 (Palgrave Studies in Comparative Global History)

This open access book considers a pivotal era in Chinese history from a global perspective. This book’s insight into Chinese and international history offers timely and challenging perspectives on initiatives like “Chinese characteristics”, “The New Silk Road” and “One Belt, One Road” in broad historical context. Global History with Chinese Characteristics analyses the feeble state capacity of Qing China questioning the so-called “High Qing” (shèng qīng 盛清) era’s economic prosperity as the political system was set into a “power paradox” or “supremacy dilemma”. This is a new thesis introduced by the author demonstrating that interventionist states entail weak governance. Macao and Marseille as a new case study aims to compare Mediterranean and South China markets to provide new insights into both modern eras’ rising trade networks, non-official institutions and interventionist impulses of autocratic states such as China’s Qing and Spain’s Bourbon empires.

Stochastic Discounted Cash Flow: A Theory of the Valuation of Firms (Springer Texts in Business and Economics)

This open access book discusses firm valuation, which is of interest to economists, particularly those working in finance. Firm valuation comes down to the calculation of the discounted cash flow, often only referred to by its abbreviation, DCF. There are, however, different coexistent versions, which seem to compete against each other, such as entity approaches and equity approaches. Acronyms are often used, such as APV (adjusted present value) or WACC (weighted average cost of capital), two concepts classified as entity approaches.This book explains why there are several procedures and whether they lead to the same result. It also examines the economic differences between the methods and indicates the various purposes they serve. Further it describes the limits of the procedures and the situations they are best applied to. The problems this book addresses are relevant to theoreticians and practitioners alike.

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection against them).Bretislav Friedrich and Martin Wolf (Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, the successor institution of Haber’s institute) together with Dieter Hoffmann, Jürgen Renn, and Florian Schmaltz (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science) organized an international symposium to commemorate the centenary of the infamous chemical attack. The symposium examined crucial facets of chemical warfare from the first research on and deployment of chemical weapons in WWI to the development and use of chemical warfare during the century hence. The focus was on scientific, ethical, legal, and political issues of chemical weapons research and deployment — including the issue of dual use — as well as the ongoing effort to control the possession of chemical weapons and to ultimately achieve their elimination.The volume consists of papers presented at the symposium and supplemented by additional articles that together cover key aspects of chemical warfare from 22 April 1915 until the summer of 2015.

The Political Economy of Populism: An Introduction (Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy)

The Political Economy of Populism explores the interplay between identity, the economy and inequality to explain the dynamics of populist votes since the beginning of the 20th century.The book discusses the political and economic implications of populist governance using data on populist incumbencies and linking it to historical data on the macro economy and democracy. Chapters draw from the most recent political science, economics and other social science literature, as well as historical data, to explain the long-term causes and consequences of populism. Populism emerges and gains traction when political entrepreneurs exploit underlying identity conflicts for political gains. As the distributional consequences of both economic distress and economic growth typically favor the elite over the poor and the lower middle class, economic shocks usually sharpen the underlying identity conflicts between the groups. The book provides evidence of significant differences in the ways fiscal and monetary policies are conducted by incumbent populists in Latin America,  Europe and the OECD. The work concludes by suggesting avenues through which a 21st century social consensus can be built, so that our society can avoid repeating the mistakes that led to wars and failed economic experiments in the 20th century.The Political Economy of Populism marks a significant contribution to the study of populism and is suited to students and scholars across the social sciences, including economics, political science and sociology.

Hate Speech Law: A Philosophical Examination (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy)

Hate speech law can be found throughout the world. But it is also the subject of numerous principled arguments, both for and against. These principles invoke a host of morally relevant features (e.g., liberty, health, autonomy, security, non-subordination, the absence of oppression, human dignity, the discovery of truth, the acquisition of knowledge, self-realization, human excellence, civic dignity, cultural diversity and choice, recognition of cultural identity, intercultural dialogue, participation in democratic self-government, being subject only to legitimate rule) and practical considerations (e.g., efficacy, the least restrictive alternative, chilling effects). The book develops and then critically examines these various principled arguments. It also attempts to de-homogenize hate speech law into different clusters of laws/regulations/codes that constrain uses of hate speech, so as to facilitate a more nuanced examination of the principled arguments. Finally, it argues that it is morally fitting for judicial and legislative judgments about the overall warrant of hate speech law to reflect principled compromise. Principled compromise is characterized not merely by compromise over matters of principled concern but also by compromise which is itself governed by ideals of moral duty or civic virtue (e.g., reciprocity, equality, and mutual respect).The Open Access version of this book, available at https://doi.org/10.4324/9781315714899, has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 license.

The Charis Legacy: A Legacy Planning Guide to Maximizing Your Giving Impact

As a young man, author Scott Monk set out to find purpose and direction for his life, and in the process, he realized a calling to build wealth to funnel as much of it as possible into the ministries and charities about which he is passionate. Throughout business school and then studying for the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation and the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification, he would find himself daydreaming about the charitable legacy he could leave and spending his free time researching strategies to maximize the impact of that legacy, and he wrote this book to take what he has learned on this personal journey and share it with other like-minded wealth stewards.In “The Charis Legacy”, he walks his readers chronologically through the life of a legacy builder, from early accumulation years through late retirement years, and offers a goldmine of financial planning strategies for maximizing legacy giving impact at each step of the way. This is a must-read for anyone interested in cementing a financial legacy of giving back, whether to charity, heirs, or both.

Hayek's The Road to Serfdom: A Brief Introduction (Chicago Shorts)

The Road to Serfdom, F. A. Hayek's 1944 warning against the dangers of government control, continues to influence politics more than seventy years after it was turned down by three American publishers and finally published by the University of Chicago Press. A classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics, the definitive edition of The Road to Serfdom included this essay as its Introduction. Here, acclaimed Hayek biographer and general editor of the Collected Works of F. A. Hayek series, Bruce Caldwell explains how Hayek came to write and publish the book, assesses misunderstandings of Hayek's thought, and suggests how Hayek's fears of Socialism lead him to abandon the larger scholarly project he had planned in 1940 to focus instead on a briefer, more popular and political tract--one that has influenced political and economic discourse ever since.

Globalisation and Poverty: Channels and Policy Responses (Routledge Studies in Globalisation Book 11)

The consequences of globalization for the world's poor are uncertain and fierce rhetoric is dividing its supporters and detractors.The channels of effect of essentially macroeconomic shocks on the microeconomic position of individuals and households in poor countries are many and various. This book addresses three core issues: 1) what are the main channels of effect? 2) what are the lessons to be learned from policy measures to alleviate negative poverty consequences? and 3) do the proposed analytical approaches assist in providing a monitoring capability? This volume assesses the more easily quantifiable effects resulting from price and quantity responses in the goods and labour markets. It includes studies of Colombia, Ghana, India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Vietnam. It uses key analytical approaches, most of which are based on numerical simulation methods employing models with different levels of complexity. These models capture the features of an economy, how it functions, and how it might respond to globalization shocks. The most important collective contribution of the authors is their establishment of directions and magnitudes of effect, based on empirical evidence.   

Ethical Codes and Income Distribution: A Study of John Bates Clark and Thorstein Veblen (Routledge Studies in the History of Economics Book 79)

In contemporary non-mainstream economic debate, it is widely thought that the functioning of a market economy needs a set of rules (i.e. institutions) which bind agents in their behaviour, allowing efficient outcomes. This idea is contrary to the General Equilibrium Model (GEM) where markets are pictured as working in an institutional vacuum and where social and historical variables play no role. However, in more recent times, a large group of economists have begun to insert social and moral variables into standard models based on the rational choice paradigm, following the increasing interest – on the part of firms – in the possible positive effects of adopting ethical codes. In this key new text Guglielmo Davanzati studies this burgeoning view that ethics and economics can be compatible. Does ‘morality’ affect income distribution? And, if so, what are the effects of the widespread adoption of ethical codes on the functioning of the labour market? Central to Davanzati’s efforts is the thesis that the roots of these new developments can be traced back to the pioneering work of Thorstein Veblen and John Bates Clark. Utilizing their contrasting works, Davanzati’s text illuminates the propagation of ethical codes within the two opposing frameworks i.e. the neoclassical and the institutional. Davanzati’s important book will be an invaluable reference for readers interested in history of economic thought, economics and moral philosophy.

Debtfare States and the Poverty Industry: Money, Discipline and the Surplus Population (RIPE Series in Global Political Economy)

WINNER of the BISA IPEG Book Prize 2015http://www.bisa-ipeg.org/ipeg-book-prize-2015-winner-announced/ Under the rubric of ‘financial inclusion’, lending to the poor –in both the global North and global South –has become a highly lucrative and rapidly expanding industry since the 1990s. A key inquiry of this book is what is ‘the financial’ in which the poor are asked to join. Instead of embracing the mainstream position that financial inclusion is a natural, inevitable and mutually beneficial arrangement, Debtfare States and the Poverty Industry suggests that the structural violence inherent to neoliberalism and credit-led accumulation have created and normalized a reality in which the working poor can no longer afford to live without expensive credit.The book further transcends economic treatments of credit and debt by revealing how the poverty industry is extricably linked to the social power of money, the paradoxes in credit-led accumulation, and ‘debtfarism’. The latter refers to rhetorical and regulatory forms of governance that mediate and facilitate the expansion of the poverty industry and the reliance of the poor on credit to augment/replace their wages. Through a historically grounded analysis, the author examines various dimensions of the poverty industry ranging from the credit card, payday loan, and student loan industries in the United States to micro-lending and low-income housing finance industries in Mexico.Providing a much-needed theorization of the politics of debt, Debtfare States and the Poverty Industry has wider implications of the increasing dependence of the poor on consumer credit across the globe, this book will be of very strong interest to students and scholars of Global Political Economy, Finance, Development Studies, Geography, Law, History, and Sociology.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lU6PHjyOzU

Fairness and Justice in Natural Resource Politics (Routledge Explorations in Environmental Studies)

As demand for natural resources increases due to the rise in world population and living standards, conflicts over their access and control are becoming more prevalent. This book critically assesses different approaches to and conceptualizations of resource fairness and justice and applies them to the analysis of resource conflicts.Approaches addressed include cosmopolitan liberalism, political economy and political ecology. These are applied at various scales (local, national, international) and to initiatives and instruments in public and private resource governance, such as corporate social responsibility instruments, certification schemes, international law and commodity markets. In doing so, the contributions contrast existing approaches to fairness and justice and extend them by taking into account the interplay between political scales, regions, resources, and power structures in "glocalized" resource politics. Various case studies are included concerning agriculture, agrofuels, land grabbing, water resources, mining and biodiversity. The volume adds to the academic and policy debate by bringing together a variety of disciplines and perspectives in order to advance both a research and policy agenda that puts notions of resource fairness and justice center-stage.

Daily Routine: Daily Morning Routine For Better Productivity, Health And Happiness

Do you ever wonder how people get energized in the mornings? Perhaps you have been sluggish for so long that you don’t know what it is that you are doing wrong. The routines that you introduce every morning into your life determine how active you are able to be. They also determine your state of mind and your ability to cope with whatever the world may throw at you. There are many who argue that mornings are filled with stresses. The daily commute to work can take a toll on your patience. The rushed breakfast or the quick look at your schedule for the day can really fill you with stress. That is, of course, if you are not prepared to change your approach. In this book, I am here to teach you that approach is everything and that basic changes in your routines can make all of the difference in the world to how your life plays out. This isn’t just for the one day either. If you carry on with the routines that I have suggested in this book, you will find yourself energized to such an extent that you will be able to double your output, as well as being able to balance your life in such a way that it is able to give you happiness and satisfaction. In this day and age, we are dealing with information overload and people tend to be sluggish in the mornings because that’s how they expect life to be. However, when you find out the secrets of energizing your mind and body first thing in the morning, you will wake up and will see that all of this behavior that you have seen as norm is actually holding you back. Prepare to become a morning person. Prepare to change your view on things because you really can. And prepare yourself for the potential happiness you may be missing out on, simply because you start your day in the same lethargic way each morning. Forget about rushed breakfasts on the go. Forget about rushing into the morning traffic with your mind buzzing with negativity. We will overhaul your daily routine, your daily habits, and work out how you can exercise everyday to build an exercise habit. Fundamentally, you will have to change habits that you’ve been cultivating for a long time, and replace them with new ones. It will require self discipline and a strong mindset, but I am sure that you will achieve it. If I can, you can too. If you read this book, you will learn, as I did, that there is indeed another way. Once you learn it, it’s unlikely that you will ever see mornings in quite the same way again.

Great Deceiver's View: From the Masala Roleplaying Games Series

The world of Masala's greatest villain sat inside a dark gemstone prison on a distant planet. This would be the last place you would expect to find the Deceiver who has controlled and manipulated Masala from its creation. He is the Deceiver, who has caused the world's armies to take up arms against each other and the battle of the gods which shook existence itself. This book uses codes and deciphers to bring to the readers the dark truth of our world's corporations, governments, and elite. The price of this book may seem hefty, but every penny goes toward saving human trafficked victims after Amazon and the government have their take.The Deceiver finds an eager ear to reveal his life's story: the massacre by the Mactire werewolves; legend of Drebo began from his cunning; how the Opaque Continent was swayed by his manipulation; and how he used the greed and desires of creatures to lead to the demise of nations and languages. No greater terror existed apart from what he did.But it wasn't enough for the Deceiver, for he wanted not only the death of all living creatures, but of all gods. He was determined to send the universe on a crash course to oblivion. The Deceived is about failed passions, epic battles, mile high monsters, political intrigue, and unnatural disasters. Open The Deceived in great care, for you might realize you are the deceived.

I Will Teach You Excel: Master Excel, surpass your co-workers, and impress your boss!

Ever get passed up for a promotion or pay increase and wonder, "why didn't I get it"? Ever wonder if your skills are good enough to compete in today's crowded job market? You work hard, go above and beyond and still can't seem to get noticed. Many of today's jobs require that you be familiar with Microsoft Excel. How can you become proficient at Excel when companies aren't willing to teach you this valuable skill?

This leaves many people trying to learn as they go and never quite feeling 100% comfortable with the program. What's worse, most people haven't even scratched the surface of Excel's potential, even if they've been using it for years. If you feel this way, you're not alone.

Think about this for a second; what will your career look like in a year if you don't take action today and improve your Excel skills? How about five years from now? Unless you take matters into your own hands things may not look much different.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, people who show proficiency in Microsoft Excel and other common office applications earn, on average, 13% more than those who don't. For most people this could mean tens of thousands of dollars over just a few years, and this doesn't even factor in lost promotions and job offers. Can you afford to leave so much on the table as a result of maintaining the status quo?

I've experienced this transformation in my career and can tell you first hand how it has helped me. When I was fresh out of college and working my first accounting job my manager asked me to complete a project that involved using VLOOKUPS. I enthusiastically obliged, walked back to my desk, and proceeded to panic. I tricked myself into thinking that I was an excel expert only because I knew a few formulas, my limited knowledge only scratched the surface. I turned to a college buddy for help; Google. I eventually managed to learn what I needed, after a lot of time and energy.

I've climbed the ladder and worn many hats since then. I can't say that the opportunities I've earned in my career are solely due to my increasing Excel proficiency. What I can definitely say is that Excel has earned me more opportunities to prove myself to management than waiting for opportunities to materialize on their own.

That's why I decided to write this book. My goal is to take you from Excel novice to master in the shortest time possible. I wrote my book specifically for the busy professional, in an easy to read manner that gets straight to the point and teaches the meat of Excel. I wrote this book for you.

>

I have helped many people improve their careers through Excel and now it's your turn. Here is what you get when you download my book:

-18 chapters of the most useful Excel techniques that will immediately take your skills to the next level

-Practical use cases plus downloadable workbooks so that you can take what you learn and feel, first hand, how to apply those skills to real world scenarios

-A FREE copy of my latest book on Google Sheets so you can stay ahead of the curve

You're at the point of decision. You can either continue down the path of least resistance, the path you have already been traveling, or you can choose the road less traveled. The path of least resistance will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you've always received.

But if you want something different to happen, if you want to change the direction of your career you're going to have to do something different. Make a choice now, pursue new outcomes.

Stock Market 101: The Secret Sauce To Stock Investing

A stock market, to say the least, is a place for trading stocks. It also functions as a sign of the financial cycle. When the economy is performing well, the prices of commodities tend to increase in the market, typically. When the economy is down, the costs of stocks also decrease; this can be true even for a very high share. It is also worth noting that the costs of stocks mainly depend on the efficiency of a business.When a company is succeeding, the price of its stocks will also tend to increase; the opposite would take place if the business is not earning well. There are odd cases where speculators are buying stock that is not performing well at all, which will result in a high stock cost even for a lousy business, but that is another story for another time. Now, the question is: Why using stocks? The reason is that it assists businesses to raise funds to finance their tasks, whether for the expansion of the company, or for their day-to-day activities, or just to please their stakeholders. Money, after all, is the brain behind every investment.A stock, also known to as a share, represents ownership of a business. When you purchase stocks from a company, you get to work out ownership rights of the company, for instance, a claim on the company's properties and revenues, and ballot rights. Remember that there are different kinds of stocks. When you see investors talking about the stock market, they usually refer to a typical stock.You might hear them talk about how the market increases or falls one day when individuals talk about stocks. The way to view this is to know the stock market index or indices. There are many stocks present in the stock exchange. Similar stocks are grouped to form an index.Having an index is an excellent way to sort the various kinds of stocks in the market. After all, the stock exchange is composed of several stocks. It will be confused if you fail to sort similar stocks in the same place. It is also a thing of reference for contrast. You can compare the tendency of the index worth with the pattern of the cost of specific stocks that fit into that same index. You can as well compare one index with another and see which industry might be a rewarding investment.Considering that there are many stocks in the market, and the index can sort all of them out in an orderly manner, an index acts as a good representation of the whole market. If you look at the index of the IT industry, then you will know the average performance of the stocks in the IT market. This applies to other markets. There are different ways to make contrasts, depending on how the shares are arranged in an index.Want to start investing? CLICK AND BUY NOW!!!

How To Self Publish: Learn Step - By - Step How To Do Market Research, Come Up With A Title That Sells, Write Your Book And Sell IT

The industry has changed. Most authors haven’t caught on. Most publishers are desperately trying to reverse the trend. A lot of vanity presses are using unscrupulous practices to play off author ignorance, and they leach as much money as possible. The industry makes a lot of money off authors, and most writers are left with little or nothing to show for their work. But the tide is changing.Thanks to Amazon, the industry is changing and authors now have the power over their own work. The old way was, spend years begging for someone to look at your manuscript in the hopes you’ll get an offer, or spend thousands to have the book published by a vanity press. No longer are these our only options.Some vanity presses are honorable, while others are not. Some very unchristian-like publishing houses claim to be ministry-minded solely for the purpose of bilking money out of trusting people. Unscrupulous business people are like politicians. They will become whatever you want them to become until they get from you what they want. It’s your job to use discernment and find a company that fits your needs. Who should publish on their own?
