Diversified Money and External Debt: A Model for the United States offers an applied economic study representing the proposed concept of how the United States can rationalize its large external financial debt. The realization of this proposal is expected to last ten years, and after that time, the U.S. will entirely dispose of its economically intimidating foreign debt. The book stipulates that American foreign trade should be internationally free and fair. To this end, an element of economic protection is embedded in trade in the form of diversified money. This concept does not disturb the freedom of interstate economic exchange of goods, but does protect America’s economic space from economically unfair exploitation. The proposal’s pure economic benefits are envisioned to enrich the U.S. by $43 trillion over ten years, an average annual economic growth of over four percent, which would be the most favorable economic period in American history. In addition, this would protect the country from frightening major economic-financial crisis, which lies in international external debt. Per the author: “If we start with the fact that the external debt of the U.S. in 2013 was 31.27 percent of all external debts in the world, it can be concluded that it is the world’s biggest economic problem.”

Our Social World: Introduction to Sociology inspires students to develop their sociological imaginations, to see the world and personal events from a new perspective, and to confront sociological issues on a day-to-day basis. Organized around the "Social World" model, a conceptual framework that demonstrates the relationships among individuals (the micro level); organizations, institutions, and subcultures (the meso level); and societies and global structures (the macro level), Jeanne H. Ballantine, Keith A. Roberts, and Kathleen Odell Korgen use this framework to help students develop the practice of using three levels of analysis, and to view sociology as an integrated whole, rather than a set of discrete subjects. The Seventh Edition includes new coverage of climate change, the influence of robots and artificial intelligence on workers, race relations in the Trump era, issues related to transgender identity and gender fluidity, sexual harassment in the workplace and the #MeToo movement, declining marriage rates, the impact of tracking for students at all academic achievement levels, smoking as an example of health and inequality in the US, gun violence and the student movement to control access to guns, social media, and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The book features a cross-disciplinary approach to urban sociology using global examples, and discusses the impact of global processes on the social structure of cities. The Fifth Edition reflects the most current data available and explores recent debates such as the role of cities in mitigating environmental problems, the global refugee crisis, Brexit, and the rise of Donald Trump in the United States.

This interdisciplinary book is written for government and industry professionals who need a comprehensive, accessible guide to modern energy security. Introducing the ten predominant energy types, both renewable and non-renewable, the book illustrates the modern energy landscape from a geopolitical, commercial, economic and technological perspective. Energy is presented as the powerhouse of global economic activities. To ensure the uninterrupted supply of energy, nations, industries and consumers need to have options. Efficient energy security planning ensures that when a primary energy source is depleted, compromised or interrupted, an alternative energy source must be readily available. For this reason, the foundations of energy security are built upon the five pillars of Sustainability, Independence, Efficiency, Affordability and Accessibility. The numerous case studies presented in this book demonstrate that energy security may be compromised in the absence of one out of these five ingredients. The book also entertains the Triple-E notion of Energy Efficiency, Environmental integrity and Economies of scale, used by governments and corporations for energy optimization. One of the key strengths of the book is its ability effectively to cover various scientific disciplines, and several energy types, while remaining comprehensible. This book will be of much interest to security or logistics professionals, economists and engineers, as well as policymakers.

This concise text focuses squarely on the issues facing marketers in an increasingly global world. It identifies several trends, linking them together, and positioning them as marketing practices that companies implement as a way of responding to the major consequences of globalization. The book also includes case studies to illustrate new practices and allow students to discuss issues of market selection, entry modes, segmentation, targeting, and positioning, as well as product, price, distribution, promotion, and corporate communication policies in a globalized world. Durand’s unique approach moves beyond marketing management and strategy issues and provides students with the broader context to understand the marketing practices they’ll use in the real world. This book will prove to be an essential resource for any student of marketing and international business working to stay ahead in an increasingly competitive and global industry.
