Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help envision the US economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy - such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; and Andy Grove of Intel. Through these stories, we come to a stark and deeper understanding of the toll technological progress will continue to take on jobs and income and its inevitable effect on tens of millions of people. But there is hope for our economy and future. The foundation of economic prosperity for all Americans, Stern believes, is a universal basic income. The idea of a universal basic income for all Americans is controversial, but American attitudes are shifting. Stern has been a game changer throughout his career, and his next goal is to create a movement that will force the political establishment to take action against something that many on both the right and the left believe is inevitable. 1.

At a time when debate is raging about how to create jobs and revive the American economy, veteran business writer William J. Holstein argues that the best way for us to recover our economic footing is to do what Americans do best - innovate and create new industries. Contrary to the perception that the American economy has run out of inspiration and new ideas, Holstein uses compelling case studies to celebrate the innovation and business success being experienced in many industries, from technology and energy to retraining and exporting, across the country, from Boston to Orlando, Pittsburgh to San Diego. In the face of economic powerhouses such as Japan and China that are pursuing conscious national strategies, Holstein argues that Americans must find new avenues of cooperation among universities, business, and government to create the kind of sustainable growth we need. Replete with fresh insights into how Americans can create a real economic recovery, The Next American Economy is essential listening for business leaders, politicians, strategists, and anyone who cares about our future. 1.

The origins of the next radical economy is rooted in a tradition that has empowered people for centuries and is now making a comeback.A new feudalism is on the rise. From the Internet to service and care, more and more industries expect people to live gig to gig, while monopolistic corporations feed their spoils to the rich. But as Nathan Schneider shows through years of in-depth reporting, there is an alternative to the robber-baron economy hiding in plain sight; we just need to know where to look. Cooperatives are jointly owned, democratically controlled enterprises that advance the economic, social, and cultural interests of their members. They often emerge during moments of crisis not unlike our own, putting people in charge of the workplaces, credit unions, grocery stores, healthcare, and utilities on which they depend. Co-ops have helped to set the rules, and raise the bar, for the wider society.Since the financial crash of 2008, the cooperative movement has been coming back with renewed vigor. Everything for Everyone chronicles this economic and social revolution - from taxi cooperatives that are keeping Uber and Lyft at bay, to an outspoken mayor transforming his city in the Deep South, to a fugitive building a fairer version of Bitcoin, to the rural electric co-op members who are propelling an aging system into the future. As these pioneers show, cooperative enterprise is poised to help us reclaim faith in our capacity for creative, powerful democracy.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

The global economic chaos of the past five years has created a tremendous amount of distrust in government, social pressures on family and relationships, and enormous financial losses for average Americans. The recovery from this horrific period of economic transition into a new and very different economy of the 21st century will be felt for many more years. In order for Americans to rebuild their shattered dreams, find and create new dignified employment, and rebuild their wealth, they will have to reinvent themselves. This means adapting to constant change and learning how to look for opportunities for success, even in perilous economic situations. It also means Americans must finally take a stand and advocate for real, meaningful change and progress in their political systems, create a new, more capable tax code and reduce our debts individually and collectively to meet our abilities to repay them. Creating a sustainable governance model and a new, more fair tax code that does not sacrifice our ideals as a nation built on capitalism is essential to our overall recovery as a nation and as a free people that have a renewed sense of purpose full of economic opportunities for all of us. 1.

In Liar´s Poker, the barbarians seized control of the bond markets. In The New New Thing some guys from Silicon Valley redefined the American economy. Now, with his knowing eye and wicked pen, Michael Lewis reveals how much the Internet boom has encouraged great changes in the way we live, work, and think. He finds that we are in the midst of one of the greatest status revolutions in the history of the world, and the Internet turns out to be a weapon in the hands of revolutionaries. Old priesthoods - lawyers, investment gurus, professionals in general - are toppling right and left. In the new order of things, the amateur, or individual, is king: 14-year-old children manipulate the stock market and 19-year-olds take down the music industry. Deep, unseen forces are undermining all forms of collectivism, from the family to the mass market: one little black box has the power to end television as we know it, and another one - also attached to the television set - may dictate significant changes in our practice of democracy. Where does it all lead? And will we like where we end up? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lewis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bant/000402/bk_bant_000402_sample.mp3.
