              Restructured to take account of changes to the A-level syllabus, this text takes the view that it is essential to understand the problems of the capitalist and mixed economies and that we need to do more that to place our faith in the market place.

              It's the Economy, Stupid: Economics for voters (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              'It's the economy stupid'. James Carville, President Bill Clinton's successful election campaign strategist, coined his maxim to leave no doubt about what matters most to the electorate. He knew that even those voter concerns that are runner-ups to the clear winner 'The economy' ...are mostly also about economics anyway. Politicians are acutely aware that democratic outcomes are largely determined by economics. Good economic news generally boosts the popularity of the incumbent party in government and bad economic performance that becomes associated with a particular political party can blight its election chances for a long time. This is true even when the rival parties have near identical economic policies, as did the two main parties in the UK during the run up to the financial crisis that caused the current 'Great Recession'. Politics is a very post hoc ergo propter hoc business, but a grasp of economics helps you sort out who, if anyone, is responsible for what. Economic policy often works with time lags, so measures taken by one government may well not have effect until after the next one is in power, but the public tends to associate the party in power with the good or bad news that is in the headlines during their term of office. In this extraordinary book top economist Vicky Pryce argues that economics, good and bad, is the driver of politics and is ignored at our peril. There are the wide-ranging and huge economic questions: How should we use economics to cost in and avoid the environmental damage that could lead to catastrophe? Are austerity measures the best way to tackle recessions or do they make them worse? How can we foster economic progress for poorer countries? How will the newly rich countries change the world economy, and with it the balance of powers?

              Where is God?: A Theology for the Here and Now, Volume One: An Introduction to Basic Concepts (EPUB ebook)

              By Ross, Andy

              We are experiencing God always. The experience of God, however, transcends our capacity to comprehend it. We will never fully grasp what God is, but this does not mean we should stop trying. Our ideas about God set the tone for our spiritual development. The further we are willin...g to journey into the mystery of God, the more we will be transformed by it. The bigger the ideas, the bigger the God, and the more our lives will reflect God. When I set out to write Where is God? it was my intention to entertain the biggest ideas possible. I wanted to understand the God of all things--the God of religion and science, the God of music and beauty, the God of life and death, the God of love. This is a book of ideas, big ideas.

Andy Ross' treatise is a work for those in any tradition or no tradition. Ross has constructed a theology that will appeal to those who might call themselves spiritual but not religious. And yet, Ross does not eschew traditional religions; instead, he draws on their wisdom while claiming no specific religion as a theological starting or ending point. Ross reflects on creation, suffering, and death, ultimately looking at how spirituality grounds a meaningful life. --Heidi Russell, Loyola University, Chicago Andy Ross spent fifteen years as a performance artist sharing the peace, love, and joy of God's being with audiences in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles. Ross then returned to North Carolina to dedicate himself to the study of spirituality. He received a BA in Religious Studies from North Carolina State University and an MA in Contemporary Spirituality from Loyola University, Chicago. He continues to teach and minister in North Carolina.

              Ever since the banking crisis started in 2007, obtaining bank loans for commercial proposes such as lines of credit, inventory, or equipment loans has been a daunting task. But Think Outside the Bank is a timely book full of timeless wisdom about how entrepreneurs and business ow...ners can take advantage of alternative methods of financing in lieu of traditional bank loans. Applying for conventional bank loans is a time-consuming and labor intensive process for most small to medium-sized businesses. The paperwork is burdensome and today's invasive underwriting procedures require reams of documentation, tough scrutiny, and nitpicky verification. Traditional lending sources have been further impeded by new banking legislation and increased FDIC oversight and regulation. Bankers are hypersensitive about their reputations regarding loose and predatory lending practices and are afraid of heavy sanctions and punitive fines. As a result of this uptight credit environment, alternative lenders who have access to private money are an expanding resource for businesses needing reliable loans without the hassles and restrictions. Think Outside the Bank author Andy Ross is a 30-year veteran of the alternative lending sector, known throughout the industry for his outstanding track record of creative innovation and ethical integrity. In this new book he reveals the time-tested methods of alternative lenders while he shares his firsthand experiences with borrowers, lenders, and private investors. He begins by explaining how he became an alternative lender at age 15 in order to help his older sister finance the purchase of a car - after her loan application was rejected by the hometown bank. Ross was the youngest person to ever obtain a real estate broker's license in his home state of Connecticut - while still in high school. Before he was old enough to vote he was already the proud owner of multiple successful businesses employing dozens of people - including his parents. He became a

              ?Folklore in the Digital Age shows how digital folklore transcends the boundaries of cyberspace and has very real effect on our everyday life in today's interconnected global world. Online and digital cultures are perhaps the most vivid aspects of globalization and while global m...ultimedia culture may on the one hand endanger traditional folklore, there is no doubt that it creates new folklore as well. Collecting essays from Violetta Krawczyk-Wasilewska's 15 years of e-folklore research, this book is an illustration of the range of modern folklore studies. While these essays cover the most serious political issues of the day, such as the 9/11 attacks, the Arab Spring and global epidemic threats such as the HIV virus, the book also touches on more lighthearted topics, such as online dating and food culture.
