Wirtschaftspolitik kompakt

Author: Markus M. Müller
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 3531144979
Release Date: 2010-05-27
Genre: Political Science

Wirtschaftspolitik kompakt stellt die Grundlagen der Wirtschaftspolitik in Deutschland dar. Fachbegriffe und Ansätze werden ebenso erläutert wie geschichtliche Phasen und Entwicklungen einzelner Bereiche, wie der Geldpolitik oder der Kartellaufsicht. Die Autoren gehen davon aus, dass Wirtschaftsordnungen stark von Land zu Land variieren. Dennoch finden allgemeine wirtschaftspolitische Trends, wie der Keynesianismus der 1960er und 1970er Jahre oder die Privatisierungs- und Liberalisierungspolitik der 1980er und 1990er Jahre, ihren Niederschlag auch in Deutschland. Dem Grundsatz nach gehörte die Bundesrepublik dabei eher zu den Nachzüglern. Mit der Globalisierung der Märkte und der Europäisierung nationalstaatlicher Politik treten nun zwei Einflussgrößen auf den Plan, die ein neues Veränderungstempo der deutschen Wirtschaftspolitik erzwingen.

Produkte werden technisch immer ausgefeilter, es gibt Dutzende verschiedene Versionen, aus denen der Kunde wählen kann. Trotzdem liegen sie wie Blei in den Regalen. Warum? Hersteller beachten nicht, welchen "Job" ein Produkt oder auch eine Dienstleistung für den Kunden erfüllen soll. Clayton M. Christensen liefert mit dem "Jobs to Be Done"-Ansatz eine umfassende Theorie, wie man die Wünsche der Kunden erkennt und in den eigenen Produkten oder Dienstleistungen umsetzt. Er zeigt die praktische Anwendung und welche Auswirkungen die Methode auf Organisationsstrukturen und Führungsentscheidungen hat. So wird Innovation von der reinen Glückssache zu einem planbaren Prozess, der Unternehmen den entscheidenden Marktvorteil bringt.

Losing Earth

Author: Nathaniel Rich
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783644004061
Release Date: 2019
Genre: Science

Die Klimakatastrophe, die wir jetzt erleben, hätte verhindert werden können. Vor dreißig Jahren gab es die Chance, den Planeten zu retten – doch sie wurde verspielt. Nathaniel Rich schildert in dieser dramatischen Reportage, wie es zu diesem wahrhaft globalen Versagen kam. Wir folgen einer Gruppe von Wissenschaftlern, Aktivisten und Politikberatern rund um den Umweltlobbyisten Rafe Pomerance und den Nasa-Forscher James Hansen, die Ende der siebziger Jahre erstmals erkennen, dass sich die Erderwärmung desaströs beschleunigt, aber auch, was dagegen zu tun ist – beinahe alles, was wir heute darüber wissen, stammt aus dieser Zeit. Rich schildert ein Jahrzehnt erbitterter Kämpfe um Öffentlichkeit, Anerkennung, politische Maßnahmen – und wie diese 1989, kurz vor dem Durchbruch, tragisch scheitern. Eine historische Reportage, die aktueller nicht sein könnte: Wir bekommen in den kommenden Jahren das zu spüren, was vor drei Jahrzehnten versäumt wurde – so wie unser gegenwärtiges Scheitern das Schicksal des Planeten in naher Zukunft besiegelt. Die Erde in ihrer heutigen Gestalt ist bereits verloren, sie wurde damals verloren – und so erzählt Rich hier die Geschichte eines beispiellosen Menschheitsversagens.

Genre: Law

Oil and natural gas, which today account for over 60% of the world’s energy supply, are often produced by offshore platforms. One third of all oil and gas comes from the offshore sector. However, offshore oil and gas installations are generally considered intrinsically vulnerable to deliberate attacks. The changing security landscape and concerns about the threats of terrorism and piracy to offshore oil and gas installations are major issues for energy companies and governments worldwide. But, how common are attacks on offshore oil and gas installations? Who attacks offshore installations? Why are they attacked? How are they attacked? How is their security regulated at the international level? How has the oil industry responded? This timely and first of its kind publication answers these questions and examines the protection and security of offshore oil and gas installations from a global, industry-wide and company-level perspective. Looking at attacks on offshore installations that occurred throughout history of the offshore petroleum industry, it examines the different types of security threats facing offshore installations, the factors that make offshore installations attractive targets, the nature of attacks and the potentially devastating impacts that can result from attacks on these important facilities. It then examines the international legal framework, state practice and international oil and gas industry responses that aim to address this vital problem. Crucially, the book includes a comprehensive dataset of attacks and security incidents involving offshore oil and gas installations entitled the Offshore Installations Attack Dataset (OIAD). This is an indispensable reference work for oil and gas industry professionals, company security officers, policy makers, maritime lawyers and academics worldwide.
