The fourth industrial revolution by Klaus Schwab( Book )
43 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 634 libraries worldwide
"World-renowned economist Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, explains that we have an opportunity to shape the fourth industrial revolution, which will fundamentally alter how we live and work. Schwab argues that this revolution is different in scale, scope and complexity from any that have come before. Characterized by a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, the developments are affecting all disciplines, economies, industries and governments, and even challenging ideas about what it means to be human. Artificial intelligence is already all around us, from supercomputers, drones and virtual assistants to 3D printing, DNA sequencing, smart thermostats, wearable sensors and microchips smaller than a grain of sand. But this is just the beginning: nanomaterials 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand of hair and the first transplant of a 3D printed liver are already in development. Imagine "smart factories" in which global systems of manufacturing are coordinated virtually, or implantable mobile phones made of biosynthetic materials. The fourth industrial revolution, says Schwab, is more significant, and its ramifications more profound, than in any prior period of human history. He outlines the key technologies driving this revolution and discusses the major impacts expected on government, business, civil society and individuals. Schwab also offers bold ideas on how to harness these changes and shape a better future--one in which technology empowers people rather than replaces them; progress serves society rather than disrupts it; and in which innovators respect moral and ethical boundaries rather than cross them. We all have the opportunity to contribute to developing new frameworks that advance progress."--Jacket
The Asian financial crisis : lessons for a resilient Asia ( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 532 libraries worldwide
This book analyzes the Asian financial crisis of 1997-1999. In addition to the issues of financial system restructuring, export-led recovery, crony capitalism, and competitiveness in Asian manufacturing, it examines six key Asian economies--China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Thailand. The book makes clear that there is little particularly Asian about the Asian financial crisis. The generic character of the crisis became clear during 1998, when it reached Russia, South Africa, and Brazil. The spread of the crisis reflects the rapid arrival of global capitalism in a world economy not used to the integration of the advanced and developing countries
The Arab world competitiveness report 2002-2003 ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
In recent years, the delicate political climate in the Middle East has often overshadowed critical discussions related to economic and social development in the Arab world. The region's economic fragility has intensified due to the economic backlash following the September 11th attacks. This report focuses on the challenges of improving the region's competitiveness at a particularly critical time. It highlights the enormous difficulties that the Arab world currently faces, problems that will only worsen unless drastic changes are made in these countries. It reveals why growth in the region has stagnated since the 1980s in spite of some of the highest investment rates in the world. It also examines why, despite its distinct natural resource endowments, the region has failed to capture a greater proportion of international trade and capital flows

Geheime Macht in den Bergen, Netzwerk der globalen Elite, Jahrmarkt der Eitelkeiten: dem Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos haften viele Etiketten an. Seit der Gründung als Managertreffen 1971 durch den deutschen Wirtschaftsprofessor Klaus Schwab hat sich das >>World Economic Forum<< (WEF) zu einer weltumspannenden Organisation entwickelt. Jedes Jahr pilgern 2500 Teilnehmer, darunter 40 Staats- und Regierungschefs, für eine knappe Woche in das kleine Schweizer Dorf. Seit 1998 ist der Journalist Jürgen Dunsch regelmäßig dabei. Sein Buch ist die erste umfassende Darstellung des WEF aus unabhängiger Feder. Es blickt hinter die Kulissen des globalen Elite-Treffs - von der Organisation bis zu den informellen Anlässen und Gesprächen einschließlich der Partyszene die manches Netzwerk festigt. WEF-Gründer Klaus Schwab ergänzt das Buch mit persönlichen Einblicken in seinen Tagesablauf, Interviews und berichtet über seine persönlichen Motive. Mit 16-seitigem, farbigem Bildteil und exklusiven, bisher unveröffentlichten Bildern
Learning from catastrophes : strategies for reaction and response ( Book )
3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Events ranging from Hurricane Katrina to the global economic crisis have taught business people an unforgettable lesson: if you don't plan for "extreme risk," you endanger your organization's very survival. But how can you plan for events that go far beyond anything that occurs in normal day-to-day business? In Learning from Catastrophes, two renowned experts present the first comprehensive strategic framework for assessing, responding to, and managing extreme risk. Howard Kunreuther and Michael Useem build on their own breakthrough work on mitigating natural disasters, extending it to the challenges faced by real-world enterprises. Along with the contributions of leading experts in risk management, heuristics, and disaster recovery, they identify the behavioral biases and faulty heuristics that mislead decision makers about the likelihood of catastrophe. They go on to identify the hidden links associated with extreme risks, and present techniques for systematically building greater resilience into the organization. The global best-seller The Black Swan told executives that "once in a lifetime" events are far more common and dangerous than they ever realized. Learning from Catastrophes shows them exactly what to do about it"--Book Description
