Learning to Unlearn

Education must adapt to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The most advanced countries in the world are all facing the challenge of retraining several generations of workers who are becoming obsolete. The education system has failed them because it hasn’t evolved to respond to the advent of the Digital Revolution. It has prepared workers to meet yesterday’s challenges, not tomorrow’s demands. In Learning to Unlearn, Founder and CEO of Global Alumni, Pablo Rivas, an industry leader in digital education, shows us how the Digital Revolution is tearing down the traditional educational system and transforming the economy, building a brave new world for the 21st century. We already enjoy the best standards of living in human history, with better health, longer life expectancy, and access to the best tools and digital technologies. With freer societies and more global interaction, now is the time to rethink the way we learn how to solve the pressing problems we still face, re-engage those who have been left behind and build the world of tomorrow, not yesterday.

The Rise of Bacardi

In 1862, in the city of Santiago de Cuba, a family-owned business purchased a distillery, producing the first bottle of what would become known as BACARDÍ rum. In the years that followed, Bacardi expanded to become a globally recognized household name, renowned for its premium quality white rum. The Rise of Bacardi tells the story of the Bacardi company, from its origins in the mid-19th century to its expansion in the early 20th to its international acclaim as the world's leading manufacturer of spirits today. This is the story of a company, but it is also the story of a family who has faced political and societal upheaval, from the Spanish American War to American Prohibition and the Cuban Revolution, and has continued to go from strength to strength over the last 150 years. As a member of the Bacardí family and former employee of the company, Jorge Del Rosal provides a unique insider's point of view in parallel to his own story as the company expanded in the latter half of the 20th century to today.

The New Local Economy

Apple, Starbucks, Zara, McDonald’s – these are some of the brands and companies that are at the forefront of today’s global economy. They are embedded in virtually every city and town. But when the global economy goes wrong (as in 2008), it can leave local communities vulnerable in the form of unemployment and bankruptcy.

This forward-looking book argues for the creation of local economies as a means of resisting the seismic changes that globalization often brings, especially in times of crisis. Moreover, research shows that for every £100 spent in a local shop, 45% will remain in the community (compared with only 15% if spent in retail chains such as Tesco or Aldi). As part of the design of the future, Elmark argues for the need to break up the global economy into local economies, so that communities can regain their independence and be less exposed to the tide of globalization.

In the Combat Zone of Finance

The 2008 financial crisis was among the worst in history, yet nevertheless offers invaluable lessons. Recorded as the third largest bankruptcy in history, it caused Iceland to experience an instant collapse. Iceland defied the rules of finance; no bailout was attempted, capital movements were restricted, bankers jailed, and creditors fought. Amazingly, although Iceland was hit hardest, it recovered fastest. In The Combat Zone of Finance is an insider’s account told through anecdotes, dialogues and personal stories. The author, Svein Harald Øygard, was offered the job of Central Bank Governor of Iceland just as the crisis struck. He saw how institutions and leaders behaved from inside the system in its deepest crisis. Some made billions; others got burned. Their behaviour, strengths and weaknesses were revealed as in no other country. Øygard analyses these events in the context of financial risks facing the world in 2020; knowledge of which is becoming increasingly relevant.

Packed full of facts, data, statistics and figures, Forbes’ book offers a compelling argument to save the planet.

I Was a Teenage Space Reporter

"That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind," were the words spoken by Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong as he stepped off the footpad of the Lunar Module Eagle. This was the first and most famous manned mission to land on the Moon. As a 19-year-old college journalist, author David Chudwin covered the launch from Florida in July 1969. Chudwin was the only journalist with official NASA press credentials representing the college press and had extraordinary access to the astronauts, rocket scientists, launch pads, rockets, and control centers. 2019 will be the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 -- a time to look back to celebrate that mission, and forward to our future in space. Divided into three parts, this book provides: the author's account of covering the first landing on the Moon in 1969; lessons learned from the Apollo program and their relevance to future space activities; and our future in space including new rockets, space stations, and trips back to the Moon and to Mars.
