One of the biggest enemies of our general wellbeing is stress; and one of the biggest causes of stress is concern about money. This book provides a simple and practical guide to planning your daily and long-term finances by understanding your objectives and motivations. In doing so, it offers respite from the anxiety and stress caused by money problems. The author, an experienced financial adviser, argues that the key to financial wellbeing is to “know thyself” in order to allow decisions to be made, and to ensure those decisions are the rights ones for you. This is underpinned by having control of your daily finances, the ability to cope with a financial shock, to be able to have options in life, to have identifiable goals and a clear path to achieve them, and to ensure clarity and security for those we leave behind.

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.

Digitization is the biggest disruption for business as usual at any major corporation. Trusted mindsets and existing business models are collapsing, corporations are struggling to react to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by risking too little transformation too slowly – and your industry is up next! It’s time to wake up, act and really shape digital change. We need to take up responsibility for digitization and Europe might well be the center stage for this change.
Fightback delivers a stunning and convincing blueprint that will enable business leaders to use the digital economy to their advantage by leveraging three powerful, but little understood, strategic tools – platform business models, digital ventures and the special skills of tech entrepreneurs. Based on a sophisticated analysis, the book is a hands-on playbook for corporate renewal in an age of digitization and makes a convincing case for Europe leading the way in changing minds and business around the world.

The burgeoning array of literature on ethical behaviour tends to focus on what’s happening at the extremes – either owner managers of start-ups built around a strong moral crusade, or large corporations undergoing change due to the personal epiphany of a forward-thinking CEO.
This book, however, is directed at the middle ground – individuals who want their companies to adopt more ethical and sustainable practices, but don’t know where to start. The 50 ideas and techniques in this book provide direction to help society and the planet, while preserving the bottom line.

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.

Why do some states and societies thrive while others do not? What awaits us in the future? Is there a universal model that can guide our success? Vadim Makhov believes there is and that it can be found by means of careful analysis of the past. In this truly big-idea book he presents his ‘lucky clover’ theory in which, when four critical elements – science, society, innovation and wealth – are present, interacting and developing simultaneously, culminate in success.
Having studied hundreds of sources, scrutinised numerous tangled intricacies in world history, and found interesting correlations between various events and phenomena, the author sets out to demonstrate that, through careful analysis of the past, we can find the right path to success.

From Trump’s aggressive rhetoric against China, to the escalating trade war with tit for tat responses, and China’s 2025 initiative that threatens the US global leadership in advanced technologies, tensions between the US and China (the two dominant forces of today’s world) have never been higher.
This book provides a timely analysis of the US-China relationship. Each model is deeply rooted in their respective histories and cultures, with both models highly successful in achieving their main goals and highly resilient over time. It explores the core misconceptions on governance, economic, social and military issues, and the root causes of these misconceptions. If China and US could close the gap by each understanding those differences and their implications, the author argues, they could work together to overcome global issues to the benefit of all.

Never before in history have, we been more educated, wealthier, and lived longer with more opportunities in life. Conversely, we have never been more stressed, anxious, depressed or lonely. In One Life
, the philosopher and business executive Morten Albæk investigates this paradox and the absurdity that all of the world’s impressive socio-economic advancements have not been translated into more existential wellbeing.
It is critical to understand why those of us, especially in prosperous countries with high living standards, continue to get sick, particularly due to work-related stress and poor leadership. The cure is not more ‘work-life balance’, but that we stop separating our persona into a working human being and private human being, and instead see ourselves as one human being with one life. That one life should be as meaningful as possible; it is meaning – not happiness – that is the most important basic ingredient for the sustainability of our lives, our businesses and our society.
