‘Wonderfully refreshing . . . A must read’ Thomas Piketty

In this revolutionary book, prize-winning economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day. From immigration to inequality, slowing growth to accelerating climate change, we have the resources to address the challenges we face but we are so often blinded by ideology.

Original, provocative and urgent, Good Economics for Hard Times offers the new thinking that we need. It builds on cutting-edge research in economics – and years of exploring the most effective solutions to alleviate extreme poverty – to make a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect. A much-needed antidote to polarized discourse, this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.

  • Bedtime Stories! Old Owl’s Fairy Tales for Children: Short Stories Picture Book for Kids about Animals from Magical Forest Paperback – 30 July 2014 by Alice Cussler (Author)

    Wonderful stories with 30 FULL-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS your children will love!

    Alice Cussler is pleased to present her new book for children – Bedtime Stories! Old Owl’s Fairy Tales for Children: Short Stories Picture Book for Kids about Animals from Magical Forest

    The old owl has been living in the magical forest for many years. He was known as Uncle John. Life in the magical forest is full of adventures, so Uncle John began gathering and writing down all interesting stories that happen to animals around him.

    Today the old owl will tell you stories about rabbit, bear, donkey, pony, raccoon, giraffe and other inhabitants of the magical forest. Although these animals are very different – some jolly, some sad, some clever, some not so much, all of them live together peacefully in the magical forest.

    This book is written to teach children to be responsible towards animals. If children learn to love and respect animals, they will become reliable and responsible adults.

    Note: This book is suitable for children 4 years and older (or parents may want to read this book with their children).

    SPECIAL PRICING: This book is exclusive to the Amazon store and is currently set at a low promotional price.

  • Finding Freedom : Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family

    When news of the budding romance between a beloved English prince and an American actress broke, it captured the world’s attention and sparked an international media frenzy.
    But while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have continued to make headlines – from their engagement, wedding, and birth of their son Archie to their unprecedented decision to step back from their royal lives – few know the true story of Harry and Meghan.
    For the very first time, FINDING FREEDOM goes beyond the headlines to reveal unknown details of Harry and Meghan’s life together, dispelling the many rumours and misconceptions that plague the couple on both sides of the pond. As members of the select group of reporters that cover the British Royal Family and their engagements, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand have witnessed the young couple’s lives as few outsiders can.
    With unique access and written with the participation of those closest to the couple, FINDING FREEDOM is an honest, up-close, and disarming portrait of a confident, influential, and forward- thinking couple who are unafraid to break with tradition, determined to create a new path away from the spotlight, and dedicated to building a humanitarian legacy that will make a profound difference in the world.

  • Riches within Your Reach! Riches within Your Reach!

    Trusted and beloved by readers everywhere for his prosperity classic The Secret of the Ages, Robert Collier takes the next step in Riches Within Your Reach! and explains how to harness mental visualization to achieve financial and professional success. A definite purpose, held on to in the face of every discouragement and failure, in spite of all obstacles and opposition, will win no matter what the odds, wrote Robert Collier. And with faith in your own definite purpose, taught the self-help master, there is no limit to what you can accomplish. In every adversity, there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage, and in each defeat, there is a lesson in how to achieve victory next time. This is the message of Riches Within Your Reach! In 1947, Collier produced Riches Within Your Reach! to assemble his most talked-about works into one simple guide. It features: The God in You (1937); The Magic Word (1940); The Secret of Power (1945); and The Law of Higher Potential (1947). Together, these pioneering works reveal all facets of one powerful secret: Human beings, since the dawn of history, have used the applied principles of mental visualization to achieve their aims. Many of the world’s most successful figures -from Napoleon Bonaparte to Benjamin Franklin to Andrew Carnegie-began their lives at a significant disadvantage, without the wealth or health that many of their peers enjoyed. Yet they were able to triumph and succeed in ways that their contemporaries weren’t-by tapping into the infinite power of their own minds. Riches Within Your Reach! not only builds upon this teaching but illuminates Collier’s most remarkable lesson ever: that each of us has an equal chance to harness the powers within ourselves to succeed, but first, we must learn how to focus our desires.
