Global Turning Points Book Summary :

The twenty-first century is replete with uncertainty and complexity: game-changing events and trends are transforming the world beyond recognition. For the first time in human history more people live in cities than in the countryside and greater numbers suffer from obesity than from hunger. Emerging economies now represent half of the global economy and during the next few decades India will be the biggest country in terms of population, China the largest in output and the United States the richest among the major economies on a per capita income basis. Food and water shortages will likely become humankind's most important challenge. In this accessible introduction, Mauro Guillén and Emilio Ontiveros deploy the tools of economics, sociology and political science to provide an analytical perspective on both the problems and opportunities facing business in the modern world.

Turning Point Book Summary :

Artificial Intelligence is here, today. How can society make the best use of it? Until recently, “artificial intelligence” sounded like something out of science fiction. But the technology of artificial intelligence, AI, is becoming increasingly common, from self-driving cars to e-commerce algorithms that seem to know what you want to buy before you do. Throughout the economy and many aspects of daily life, artificial intelligence has become the transformative technology of our time. Despite its current and potential benefits, AI is little understood by the larger public and widely feared. The rapid growth of artificial intelligence has given rise to concerns that hidden technology will create a dystopian world of increased income inequality, a total lack of privacy, and perhaps a broad threat to humanity itself. In their compelling and readable book, two experts at Brookings discuss both the opportunities and risks posed by artificial intelligence—and how near-term policy decisions could determine whether the technology leads to utopia or dystopia. Drawing on in-depth studies of major uses of AI, the authors detail how the technology actually works. They outline a policy and governance blueprint for gaining the benefits of artificial intelligence while minimizing its potential downsides. The book offers major recommendations for actions that governments, businesses, and individuals can take to promote trustworthy and responsible artificial intelligence. Their recommendations include: creation of ethical principles, strengthening government oversight, defining corporate culpability, establishment of advisory boards at federal agencies, using third-party audits to reduce biases inherent in algorithms, tightening personal privacy requirements, using insurance to mitigate exposure to AI risks, broadening decision-making about AI uses and procedures, penalizing malicious uses of new technologies, and taking pro-active steps to address how artificial intelligence a

Upheaval Book Summary :

A "riveting and illuminating" Bill Gates Summer Reading pick about how and why some nations recover from trauma and others don't (Yuval Noah Harari), by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the landmark bestseller Guns, Germs, and Steel. In his international bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now, in his third book in this monumental trilogy, he reveals how successful nations recover from crises while adopting selective changes -- a coping mechanism more commonly associated with individuals recovering from personal crises. Diamond compares how six countries have survived recent upheavals -- ranging from the forced opening of Japan by U.S. Commodore Perry's fleet, to the Soviet Union's attack on Finland, to a murderous coup or countercoup in Chile and Indonesia, to the transformations of Germany and Austria after World War Two. Because Diamond has lived and spoken the language in five of these six countries, he can present gut-wrenching histories experienced firsthand. These nations coped, to varying degrees, through mechanisms such as acknowledgment of responsibility, painfully honest self-appraisal, and learning from models of other nations. Looking to the future, Diamond examines whether the United States, Japan, and the whole world are successfully coping with the grave crises they currently face. Can we learn from lessons of the past? Adding a psychological dimension to the in-depth history, geography, biology, and anthropology that mark all of Diamond's books, Upheaval reveals factors influencing how both whole nations and individual people can respond to big challenges. The result is a book epic in scope, but also his most personal yet.

Book Asia s Turning Point

Asia s Turning Point Book Summary :

Asia was probably the biggest economic sensation of the post-wardecades. The breathtaking success of Japan was followed by aremarkable rise of "four tigers", then ASEAN founder states andthen China. The Asian miracle became a commonly accepted definitionof this success. In the late 1970s and especially 80s it becameclear that the balance of power in the world had changed.Politicians, businessmen, scholars began to talk about "the newAsia Pacific age" and Asian economic model, different from and,maybe, even superior to Western capitalism. However, in 1997-98 theAsian economic crisis came and made the region a sick man. Sixyears before that Japan, the regional powerhouse entered more thana decade-long period of stagnation. The miracle was over. However,the crisis was overcome within a surprisingly short period of time.Naturally, the question arises: What now? What is going on in theregion after the miracle and after the crisis? What is today's faceof Asian capitalism and how should we view its performance? Readers interested in regional developments will find a lot ofliterature about miracle decades and crisis years. However, fewanalysts have addressed the challenging questions addressed in thisbook. The authors vividly show that Asian capitalism is undergoing aradical structural transformation. These changes are directlyaffecting its key institutions: governments, companies, laborrelations, etc. As a result Asian economic systems are becomingmuch closer to the Western-style, especially Anglo-Saxoncapitalism, though the region retains some important specificfeatures, especially regarding business culture. This book is a must for business people worldwide, for all thosewho study the region in colleges and business schools, for peopleengaged in various international activities and, finally, for allthose who want learn more about our world at the dawn of the newcentury.
