Liebst du es, neue Geschäftskontakte zu knüpfen, um deiner Karriere auf die Sprünge zu helfen? Ist das Erwachsensein für dich eine aufregende neue Herausforderung, der du ohne Weiteres gewachsen bist? Bäh! Verschwinde bitte. Für alle anderen gibt es diese einzigartigen, lässig gezeichneten Comics von Sarah Andersen. In Erwachsen werd ich (vielleicht) später zeigt die junge New Yorker Künstlerin, wie wir an schönen Wochenenden unsere ganze Zeit im Internet vergeuden, wie wir uns schicke Kleidung kaufen und trotzdem wieder zum abgenutzten Lieblingspulli greifen oder wie wir manchmal einfach liegen bleiben anstatt unsere Lebenspläne in Angriff zu nehmen. Die herrlich erfrischenden Comics sind ein Spiegel unserer Weigerung, erwachsen zu werden. Ein Buch, das vielen jungen Frauen aus der Seele spricht.

Warum wir arbeiten

Genre: Literary Collections

Der Psychologieprofessor Barry Schwartz findet in seinem TED-Book ›Warum wir arbeiten‹ eine ganz überraschende, komplexe und eindringliche Antwort auf diese auf den ersten Blick so simple Frage. Er zerstört den Mythos, dass es bei der Arbeit nur ums Geldverdienen gehe und fordert – unterstützt durch zahlreiche Studien und Anekdoten –, dass wir neue Wege finden müssen, um unser Verhältnis zur Arbeit neu zu definieren. Schwartz nimmt uns mit in Krankenhäuser und Friseursalons, Fabriken und Vorstandsetagen und zeigt, welche unterschiedlichen Formen die Arbeit annehmen kann, welche Funktion sie für unsere Kultur innehat und wie jeder von uns seinen eigenen Weg zum Glück am Arbeitsplatz findet.

Hypercapitalism

Author: Larry Gonick
Publisher: The New Press
ISBN: 9781620972830
Release Date: 2018-01-16
Genre: Business & Economics

PAPERBACK ORIGINAL From the bestselling cartoonist of The Cartoon History of the Universe comes an explosive graphic takedown of capitalism Bestselling “overeducated cartoonist” Larry Gonick has delighted readers for years with sharp, digestible, and funny accounts of everything from the history of the universe to the intricacies of calculus. Now Gonick teams up with psychologist and scholar Tim Kasser to create an accessible and pointed cartoon guide to how global, privatizing, market-worshiping hypercapitalism threatens human well-being, social justice, and the planet. But Gonick and Kasser don’t stop at an analysis of how the economic system got out of whack—they also point the way to a healthier future. A primer for the post-Occupy generation, Hypercapitalism draws from contemporary research on values, well-being, and consumerism to describe concepts (corporate power, free trade, privatization, deregulation) that are critical for understanding the world we live in, and movements (voluntary simplicity, sharing, alternatives to GDP, protests) that have developed in response to the system. Gonick and Kasser’s pointed and profound cartoon narratives provide a deep exploration of the global economy and the movements seeking to change it, all rendered in clear, graphic—and sometimes hilarious—terms.
