"Picketty (the rich get richer), Gordon (the important innovations are already behind us), Tainter (it's too complicated) all have theories about why the 21st century is such a disappointment. James Dale Davidson connects the dots...but more dots…and more unexpected dots…than perhaps anyone." —From the Foreword by BILL BONNER, coauthor of International bestseller The Empire Debt IS YOUR PORTFOLIO POSITIONED FOR THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL REVOLUTION? The global economy as we know it is due for a major correction, and with this will come permanent, systemic change: the greatest economic freedom the world has ever seen. But hard financial times are ahead, and The Breaking Point will help you protect your wealth and prosper through it all. Providing a painfully clear view of the state of the global economy, outspoken economist James Dale Davidson uses the old-fashioned tool of argument—facts—to describe how governments have mismanaged the financial system to the point of no return. It has all led to Brexit—the opening salvo in the war for financial freedom. The Breaking Point shows you where we've been and where we're headed, offering the insight and information you need to ensure you're positioned for the worst of times-and the best of times.

The Worldly Philosophers

Author: Robert L. Heilbroner
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781439144824
Release Date: 2011-01-11
Genre: Business & Economics

The bestselling classic that examines the history of economic thought from Adam Smith to Karl Marx—“all the economic lore most general readers conceivably could want to know, served up with a flourish” (The New York Times). The Worldly Philosophers not only enables us to see more deeply into our history but helps us better understand our own times. In this seventh edition, Robert L. Heilbroner provides a new theme that connects thinkers as diverse as Adam Smith and Karl Marx. The theme is the common focus of their highly varied ideas—namely, the search to understand how a capitalist society works. It is a focus never more needed than in this age of confusing economic headlines. In a bold new concluding chapter entitled “The End of the Worldly Philosophy?” Heilbroner reminds us that the word “end” refers to both the purpose and limits of economics. This chapter conveys a concern that today’s increasingly “scientific” economics may overlook fundamental social and political issues that are central to economics. Thus, unlike its predecessors, this new edition provides not just an indispensable illumination of our past but a call to action for our future.

Author: F. Von Broembsen
Publisher: Jason Aronson
ISBN: 0765701642
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Medical

Dr. von Broembsen adduces clinical material to illustrate the violation of the self caused by "unenfranchised self experiences" as seen from the perspective of the individual patient and also in terms of relational dynamics (of family life, say, in which instrumental status may be conferred upon a child). In an unusually erudite exposition informed by her clinical work, Dr. von Broembsen addresses the therapeutic challenge of reorganizing experience in quest of the authenticity she defines as crucial to sovereignty.

Brazil Is the New America

Author: James Dale Davidson
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118235560
Release Date: 2012-07-31
Genre: Business & Economics

Look to Brazil for safe, stable investments As the future of the American economy seems to get bleaker by the day, it is tempting to look abroad for business opportunities. Europe and Asia don't provide much hope, but what about somewhere that's both closer to home and sunny year-round? In Brazil is the New America: How Brazil Offers Upward Mobility in a Collapsing World, James D. Davidson shows that the current financial situation in Brazil is a haven for those looking to make money in a world in turmoil. With a population just 62 percent the size of that of the US, Brazil has added 15,023,633 jobs over the past eight years, while the US has lost millions. In a world burdened by bankrupt governments and aging populations, Brazil is solvent, with two people of working age for every dependent. In a world of "Peak Oil" Brazil is energy independent, with 70 billion barrels of oil, 60% of the world's unused arable land, and 15% of its fresh water. Comparatively non-leveraged—and with significant room for growth and expansion, as well as vast natural resources, Brazil is a haven of opportunity. Written by James D. Davidson, the editor/publisher of Strategic Investment and cofounder of Agora and the media outlet, Newsmax, Brazil is the New America details: How the original "America" now embodies the brightest hope for realizing the American Dream while the "Old America" is headed for a dramatic decline in the standard of living Investment opportunities not only for those willing to relocate, but anyone who can consider investing there The cost structure of employment in Brazil versus the United States Brazil has already learned its lesson about the dangers of inflation. Cash has taken the place of credit, and high interest rate returns are now the norm.

The american challenge

Genre: Science

"The signs and instruments of power are no longer armed legions or raw materials or capital... The wealth we seek does not lie in the earth or in numbers of men or in machines, but in the human spirit. And particularly in the ability of men to think and to create.' -- Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber in his international bestseller, The American Challenge. The American Challenge was 50 years ahead of its time in its appraisal of Europe, industrialization, the global economy and digital future, and the sclerosis of French politics. A new generation of French and Europeans can now rediscover it and take measure of all that still remains to be accomplished to bring to fruition the post-war European dream. "The world we live in is very much the world Servan-Schreiber imagined,' Professor Paul Krugman writes in his preface to this ebook edition, further adding that "JJSS was an incredibly insightful prophet.' With its radically new economic and political vision, The American Challenge was a bestseller when first published in 1967. Selling over 2 million copies in France and more than 10 million throughout the world, the book was translated and published in 16 languages and 26 countries. This first ebook edition provides the original edition's text in its entirety. Available from all major online retailers, it includes a new preface by New York Times op-ed contributor and Nobel Prize winner in Economics, Paul Krugman, acclaiming a book that "marked a whole generation.' Praise for "The American Challenge": "The American Challenge, was not only a game changer for European–American relations, it also provided a new and innovative conception of national competitiveness. The book was a true catalyst in the creation of the World Economic Forum.'- Klaus Schwab, Founder and Chairman, The World Economic Forum "Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber first put forth his bold vision of accelerating American prosperity back in 1967. While this outcome seemed inevitable at the time, half a century later we have fallen far short of that future. The reissue of his landmark book serves as a clarion call for our stagnant civilization to find a way back to the optimistic future of the 1960s.' - Peter Thiel, Co-Founder of Paypal, Managing Partner of the Founders' Fund "Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber was a true humanist. He understood the importance of the sovereignty for the people in the wake of European colonialism, as well as the potential in federating resources in an increasingly multipolar world, exemplified by his support of the European integration. He also foresaw the possibilities and challenges of modern technology.' - Nicolas Berggruen, President, Berggruen Institute on Governance "The American Challenge is an excellent, vigorous and modern book – that is to say, one free of many of the usual shortcomings and repetitiveness of commonplace thinking.' - Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, President of France, 1974-1981 "The American Challenge is at the top of the best seller lists. For a tome rich in statistics and dealing with the world of economic and corporate development, computers, satellites and the rivalries of industrial power blocs, this is an astonishing success. If Marx had done as well with "Das Kapital', we might all be waving red flags and eating caviar.' - New York Times, May 19, 1968
