The birth of plenty : how the prosperity of the modern world was created by William J Bernstein( Book )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Birth of Plenty suggests - and supports with groundbreaking analysis - that from the dawn of recorded history through 1820, the "mass of man" experienced essentially zero growth, both in economic standing or living standards. It was only in the nineteenth century that the world's standard of living began to inexorably and irreversibly improve and the modern world was born." "The Birth of Plenty frames the modern world's prosperity - or, in far too many cases, continuing lack of prosperity - in terms that are ingenious yet simple, complex yet easily understood. Entertaining and provocative, it will forever change the way you view the human pursuit of happiness and bring the conflicts of both the world's superpowers and developing nations into a fascinating and informative new light."--Jacket
Masters of the word : how media shaped history from the alphabet to the Internet by William J Bernstein( Book )

20 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the birth of writing in Mesopotamia to the technologies of today, Bernstein documents the technology of media, a revolutionary tool that allowed rulers to extend their control far and wide, giving rise to the world's first empires. Writing gave rise to the world's empires and the birth of drama and democracy. But it is not just new communication technologies that have changed the world -- it is access to them. Vernacular bibles gave rise to religious dissent, but it was only when the combination of cheaper paper and Gutenberg's printing press drove down the cost of books by 97 percent that the fuse of Reformation was lit. The Industrial Revolution allowed information to move faster and farther than ever before, though it concentrated power and enabled totalitarian governments. With the twenty-first century boom of the mobile Internet, control of media has again spread, and the world is both more connected and freer than ever before

How to think about money by Jonathan Clements( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Longtime personal finance columnist for The Wall Street Journal, Jonathan Clements, provides readers with a coherent way to think about their finances, so they worry less about money, make smarter financial choices and squeeze more happiness out of the dollars that they have. How to Think About Money is built around five key ideas: money can buy happiness, but we need to spend with great care; most of us will enjoy an extraordinarily long life--and that has profound financial implications; we are hardwired for financial failure, so sensible money management takes great mental strength; we need to bring order to our financial life by focusing on our paycheck, or lack thereof; if we want to add to our wealth, we should strive to minimize subtractions.--
