Capitalism and Freedom outlines the Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedmanâs views on the relationship between economics and politics. Specifically, he believes that economic freedom is necessary both in and of itself, and because it is inextricably linked to political freedom. He applies this insight to a host of contemporary problems to argue that the situation could be improved by what he refers to as âcompetitive capitalismâ. Capitalism and Freedom has sold hundreds of thousands of copies since it was first published in 1962, and was described by The Times Literary Supplement as âone of the most influential books published since the warâ. Friedman himself was one of the most influential economists of the 20th century, and his ideas have been adopted by governments around the world.

The Wealth of Nations is one of the most significant works in economics history, and is a foundational text of classical economics. Written at a time when the Industrial Revolution was changing the face of Western societies, the book seeks to explain why some countries are wealthier than others and how a fair, productive society can be created. In particular, Smithâs advocacy of division of labour, free trade and free markets, with equilibrium guaranteed by the so-called âinvisible hand of the marketâ, proved extremely influential in the UK and USA and shaped our modern economic system. The work is still widely studied today, and remains one of the most cited texts in the social sciences. This book review and analysis is perfect for: â¢Students of economic theory and the history of economicsâ¢Anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of classical economicsâ¢Anyone who is curious about why some countries are wealthier than others About 50MINUTES.COM | BOOK REVIEW The Book Review series from the 50Minutes collection is aimed at anyone who is looking to learn from experts in their field without spending hours reading endless pages of information.

Thinking, Fast and Slow, by the Nobel Prize-winning economist Daniel Kahneman, explores the fallacies that can impair human decision-making and the biases that may lead us to act in an irrational way. Kahneman posits that the human mind is governed by two systems of thought, which we lean on in different circumstances, and that our perception can be shaped by a host of outside influences. Thinking, Fast and Slow is an acclaimed international bestseller, with over one and a half million copies sold to date and glowing reviews from outlets including The Economist, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Along with Amos Tversky, Kahneman has carried out pioneering work on human decision-making, and his collaboration with the Nobel Prize-winning economist Richard Thaler has played a key role in the development of the burgeoning field of behavioural economics.

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209691467&fc=AU&cjsku=209691467...
'Once upon a time, the London theatre was a charming mirror held up to cosiness. Then came Joan Littlewood, smashing the glass, blasting the walls, letting the wind of life blow in a rough, but ready, world. Today, we remember this irresistible force with love and gratitude.' (Peter Brook) Along with Peter Brook, Joan Littlewood, affectionately termed 'The Mother of Modern Theatre', has come to be known as the most galvanising director of mid-twentieth-century Britain, as well as a founder of so many of the practices of contemporary theatre. The best-known work of Littlewood's company, Theatre Workshop, included the development and premieres of Shelagh Delaney's A Taste of Honey, Brendan Behan's The Hostage and The Quare Fellow, and the seminal Oh What A Lovely War. This autobiography, originally published in 1994, offers an unparalleled first-hand account of Littlewood's extraordinary life and career, from illegitimate child in south-east London to one of the most influential directors and practitioners of our times. It is published along with an introduction by Philip Hedley CBE, previously Artistic Director of Theatre Royal Stratford East and Assistant Director to Joan Littlewood.

Meet the man and uncover the story behind one of Australiaâs most recognised brands We all know Jimâs. Maybe you just passed a Jimâs Mowing trailer on the road; or maybe thereâs a Jimâs Cleaning van parked across the street each Tuesday morning; or maybe your best mate is laughing all the way to the bank after quitting the city and starting his new Jimâs Fencing franchise, but do you know the real story behind the Jimâs Group and its founder, Jim Penman? Brutally efficient, socially awkward, and a tireless perfectionist, Jim is as complex and fascinating as the Jimâs Group. This book is a warts-and-all look at his colourful life that delves deep into how he ignored conventional thinking to turn a few mowing rounds into a corporate juggernaut built on always putting the customer first. Jimâs unique approach revolutionised Australiaâs business landscape, providing thousands of people the opportunity to create and grow their own businesses. Most Australians know very little about the man who created one of the nationâs most famous companies. For all of his success, Jim is remarkably unassuming and approachable. In this authorised biography, author Catherine Moolenschot sat down with Jim and over one hundred people who know him â from franchisees and franchisors, to family, friends, and adversaries â to get up close and personal with the surprising story of one of Australiaâs biggest brands and the man who made it all happen. Jimâs Book tells the fascinating story of the man and the business that bears his name. Equal parts biography, history and philosophy, this book takes readers on a journey through one manâs remarkable life.
