In this urgent and timely book, Vince Cable explains the causes of the world economic crisis and how we should respond to it. He shows that although the downturn is global, the complacency of the British government towards the huge 'bubble' in property prices and high levels of personal debt, combined with increasingly exotic trading within the financial markets, has left Britain badly exposed. This edition has been fully revised and updated to include Vince Cable's latest assessment of the recession.

Wie ein entfesselter Kapitalismus das weltweite Wirt­schaftssystem beschädigen, wenn nicht gar ruinieren kann, war gerade zu besichtigen. Aber gibt es zu diesem System überhaupt Alternativen, und wie sehen sie aus? John Maynard Keynes (1883–1946), der intelligenteste und einflussreichste Wirtschaftstheoretiker aller Zeiten, hat schon vor einem halben Jahrhundert darüber nachgedacht, und seine Analysen sind heute aktueller denn je. Sein berühmter Ausspruch: »Auf lange Sicht sind wir alle tot« zielt auf realitätsferne ökonomische Modelle, die unser Denken bestimmen und zu verheerendem Handeln führen. Keynes’ Wirtschaftstheorie allerdings war nie ganz tot, selbst in Zeiten blinder Marktgläubigkeit blieben seine Ideen unterschwellig präsent. Denn die Grundgedanken seiner »Allgemeinen Theorie« zielen auf den Kern allen Wirtschaftens: »Niemand kennt die Zukunft.« Darauf gründet Keynes’ Überzeugung von der »fundamentalen Unsicher­heit« der globalen Finanzmärkte. Mit mathematischen Formeln wird man sie nicht in den Griff kriegen. Wirtschaftskrisen sind nicht die große Ausnahme, sondern Teil der Marktwirtschaft. Wenn man den Markt aber sich selbst überlässt, können sie lange anhalten. Deswegen muss der Staat eingreifen. Vor allem aber ist Wirtschaft kein Selbstzweck. Sie hat dem Menschen, dem guten Leben zu dienen. Robert Skidelsky, die Koryphäe für Keynes’ Werk, hat seine Wirtschaftstheorie neu interpretiert – für heute. Seine brillante Analyse des »Meisters« ist Pflichtlektüre für jeden, der unsere aufgewühlten Zeiten verstehen will.

Mao Zedong had developed the Three Worlds Theory; however, after the dissolution of Soviet Union, Third World has been used interchangeably with least developed countries and somehow conveys poverty. Nevertheless, the term Third World has also been used to describe some rich countries with very high Gross Domestic Product or even high Human Development Index; therefore, poverty is not always economical, and roots within society. The nature of society is rooted in culture, which is set of ideas, norms, and values; and structure, which is the fundamental organization of society into its institutions, groups, statuses, and roles. While evaluating the difference between “real culture” and “ideal culture”, lead us to understand that cultural values are not always consistent, even within the same society. Global poverty dates back to centuries of plunder and confiscation of land and riches from the indigenous people under the flag of colonialism and exploitation. Over years, exploitation has led the current economic system being funded by the poor through theft of land and natural resources, unfair debt settlement, and unjust taxes on labor and consumption. Social inequality – in sense of distribution of material possessions, money, power, prestige, relationship – whether within societies or among them is a topic at the heart of sociology. The theory of a “Culture of Poverty” describes the combination of factors that perpetuate patterns of inequality and poverty in society. This theory states that living in conditions of prevalent poverty leads to the development of a culture or subculture adapted to those conditions, and characterized by prevalent feelings of vulnerability, dependency, marginality, and feebleness. The myth of the Culture of Poverty, intensifying Cultural Poverty, Cycle of poverty or development trap, insufficiency of materialist information society, necessity of knowledge society, and other key factors in crafting the third world are discussed in this book. “The Third World; Country or People” takes a systematic approach to the analysis of human lives and interactions and evaluates various fields including anthropology, economics, political science, ethnic studies, area studies, gender studies, cultural studies.

In June 2009, the ASEAN Studies Centre of the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung organized ISEAS' annual roundtable, this time on the subject of "The Global Economic Crisis: Implications for ASEAN." The roundtable concluded that the crisis had a significant impact on the region, and ASEAN needed to have a better co-ordinated approach if it was to weather the storm. The region had taken into account the fact that the developed countries like the US and the EU would take a longer time to come out of the crisis. Hence, while export-led growth policies had served the region well in the past, governments now had to adopt policies that were oriented more to the domestic or regional markets. Another conclusion of the roundtable had to do with the notion of "security." The current economic crisis was considered as a new kind of insecurity. Hence, the future treatment of regional security should be reconceptualized, so that there could be better prospects of anticipating future threats from the economic realm. Lastly, the roundtable judged that ASEAN had not fully addressed the implications of the current crisis on the poor. In the light of the tendency of the crisis to push increasing number of people to become poor, ASEAN cooperation in labour and social protection needed to aim at preventing the crisis from causing further social damage.

Regional cooperation in East Asia on various issue areas, such as emergency liquidity mechanisms in finance, the exponential growth of free trade agreements and policy coordination on the environment and public health, developed rapidly after the Asian Financial Crisis. A decade later, the global financial crisis offered a new opportunity for the nascent regional cooperation mechanisms to acquire new depth and meaning - this time, however, in a very different context due to the unfaltering rise of China. How have inter-state cooperation mechanisms, which were devised originally to deal with the problems of the past crisis, fared in the recent global economic turbulence? Can regional integration effectively insulate East Asia from the vagaries of the international market? Should East Asian nations heed the call for regionalism or globalism? This volume not only offers one of the first assessments of how the global economic crisis has affected the prospects for regional integration in East Asia, but it also addresses a number of long-standing debates of interest to East Asian specialists, economists and policymakers: Are crises catalysts for revamping developmental models? Do they provide solid foundations for regional solidarity and integration? Can they help catapult countries into the global limelight? This book was originally published as a special issue of The Pacific Review.

Seine Firma Bridgewater Associates ist der größte Hedgefonds der Welt, er selbst gehört zu den Top 50 der reichsten Menschen auf dem Planeten: Ray Dalio. Seit 40 Jahren führt er sein Unternehmen so erfolgreich, dass ihn Generationen von Nachwuchsbankern wie einen Halbgott verehren. Mit "Die Prinzipien des Erfolgs" erlaubt er erstmals einen Blick in seine sonst so hermetisch abgeriegelte Welt. Seine Beobachtungen aus dem Geschäftsleben hielt Ray Dalio schon als junger Unternehmer in einem Notizbuch fest. Das war die Geburtsstunde seiner gut 200 "Prinzipien", die mit diesem Buch erstmals gebündelt vorliegen und kaum weniger als die Essenz des geradezu unheimlichen Erfolgs von Ray Dalio und seiner Firma darstellen. Kern dieser Prinzipien ist eine stetige Verbesserung durch radikale Transparenz und Wahrhaftigkeit, eine Art "Ideen-Meritokratie ", also eine Atmosphäre, in der sich die besten Ideen durchsetzen. Die einzigartigen Prinzipien, mithilfe derer jeder den Weg des Erfolgs einschlagen kann, und die mitunter harten Lektionen, die ihn sein einzigartiges System errichten ließen, hat Ray Dalio auf eine bisher noch nie dagewesene, unkonventionelle Weise zusammengetragen.
