Vergesst die Krise

Author: Paul Krugman
Publisher: Campus Verlag
ISBN: 9783593417486
Release Date: 2012-05-14
Genre: Business & Economics

Deutschland hat die Krise nicht verstanden, sagt Nobelpreisträger Paul Krugman. Sein neues Buch ist eine leidenschaftliche Anklage gegen die europäische und insbesondere die deutsche Sparpolitik. Er erklärt, dass Staaten, die reich sind an Ressourcen, Talent und Wissen - den wesentlichen Zutaten für Wohlstand und einen anständigen allgemeinen Lebensstandard -, in der jetzigen Lage nur durch Investitionen, also weitere Schulden auf Zukunftskurs steuern können. Eine schnelle und deutliche Erholung ist in greifbarer Nähe - einzig es fehlt die politische Weichenstellung. Krugmans Weckruf lautet: Wir sparen uns zu Tode! »Merkels Gegner und wie sie die Welt sehen« Die Zeit

Genre: History

Die berühmten Augenzeugenberichte und Reportagen John Reeds von der Russischen Revolution 1917 sind gerade heute angesichts der revolutionären Entwicklungen in den arabischen Ländern hochaktuell.

Animal Spirits

Author: George A. Akerlof
Publisher: Campus Verlag
ISBN: 9783593389370
Release Date: 2009-03-02
Genre: Political Science

Viel zu lange hat die Ökonomie einen der wichtigsten Faktoren im wirtschaftlichen Agieren von Menschen vernachlässigt: die Animal Spirits, also die nicht-rationalen Aspekte unseres Handelns. Ein großer Fehler, sagen George A. Akerlof und Robert J. Shiller, dessen Folgen wir in der Wirtschaftskrise täglich neu zu spüren bekommen. Sie fordern, das Verhalten des Menschen in der Wirtschaft wieder stärker zu berücksichtigen, anstatt sich auf reinen Marktglauben zu konzentrieren. Dieses Buch ist das Ergebnis ihrer langjährigen Forschungsarbeit. Es zeigt uns, wie erfolgreiches ökonomisches Denken und Handeln in der Zukunft aussehen muss.

Der Preis der Ungleichheit

Author: Joseph Stiglitz
Publisher: Siedler Verlag
ISBN: 9783641098193
Release Date: 2012-10-08
Genre: Social Science

Viele Arme, wenige Reiche - Warum die wachsende Ungleichheit uns alle angeht Die Ungleichheit in der Welt nimmt zu: Immer weniger Menschen häufen immer größeren Reichtum an, während die Zahl der Armen wächst und die Mittelschicht vom Abstieg bedroht ist. Doch diese Entwicklung, so zeigt Nobelpreisträger Joseph Stiglitz in seinem neuen Bestseller, ist keine zwangsläufige Folge einer freien Marktwirtschaft, sondern Ergebnis einer globalisierten Ökonomie, die zunehmend vom reichsten einen Prozent der Bevölkerung beherrscht wird.

Soziologische Phantasie

Author: C. Wright Mills
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783658100155
Release Date: 2016-04-27
Genre: Social Science

Soziologische Phantasie, die erstmals 1963 erschienene deutsche Übersetzung von C. Wright Mills‘ The Sociological Imagination, darf zurecht als Meilenstein wissenschaftlich-politischer Debatten in den Vereinigten Staaten betrachtet werden und zählt auch heute noch zu einer der wichtigsten Selbstkritiken der Soziologie. Mills schlägt hier einen dritten Weg zwischen bloßem Empirismus und abgehobener Theorie ein: Er plädiert für eine kritische Sozialwissenschaft, die sich weder bürokratisch instrumentalisieren lässt noch selbstverliebt vor sich hin prozessiert, sondern gesellschaftliche Bedeutung erlangt, indem sie den Zusammenhang von persönlichen Schwierigkeiten und öffentlichen Problemen erhellt. Eben dies sei Aufgabe und Verheißung einer Soziologie, die sich viel zu häufig „einer merkwürdigen Lust an der Attitüde des Unbeteiligten“ hingebe.
