Zero to one : notes on startups, or how to build the future by Peter A Thiel( Book )

26 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and French and held by 1,675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thiel starts from the bold premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we're too distracted by our new mobile devices to notice. Progress has stalled in every industry except computers, and globalization is hardly the revolution people think it is. It's true that the world can get marginally richer by building new copies of old inventions, making horizontal progress from "1 to n." But true innovators have nothing to copy. The most valuable companies of the future will make vertical progress from "0 to 1," creating entirely new industries and products that have never existed before. Zero to One is about how to build these companies. Tomorrow's champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today's marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique. In today's post-internet bubble world, conventional wisdom dictates that all the good ideas are taken, and the economy becomes a tournament in which everyone competes to reach the top. Zero to One shows how to quit the zero-sum tournament by finding an untapped market, creating a new product, and quickly scaling up a monopoly business that captures lasting value. Planning an escape from competition is essential for every business and every individual, not just for technology startups. The greatest secret of the modern era is that there are still unique frontiers to explore and new problems to solve. Zero to One shows how to pursue them using the most important, most difficult, and most underrated skill in every job or industry: thinking for yourself"--
Ivory tower by Andrew Rossi( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is college worth the cost? Groundbreaking filmmaker Andrew Rossi asks the critical question about the value of higher education, revealing how colleges have come to embrace a business model that often promotes expansion over quality learning. With student-loan debt now over the one trillion dollar mark, the once-great American institution is at a breaking point. The film explores the current education crisis from the halls of Harvard, to community colleges, to online learning
The diversity myth : "multiculturalism" and the politics of intolerance at Stanford by David O Sacks( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book chronicles, from the point of view of students who are unwilling participants in the process, the transformation of Stanford University from an institution committed to preserving the values of Western civilization to one intent on engineering social change on campus to promote the dogmas of multiculturalism. The book is an insider's tour of the world of speech codes, the dumbing down of admissions standards and curricula, the campus witch hunts, and the anti-Western zealotry that masquerades as "multiculturalism." Part 1, "The New Academy", discusses the rejection of Western values; multiculturalism from the vantage points of student diversity, moral relativism, political and social ideology, and enforcement of conformity in behavior and attitudes; the education of Generation x, with details about grade inflation, curriculum content, courses characterizing Westerners as oppressors, and courses inculcating radicalism. Part 2, "The New Culture", discusses the stages of oppression, including "institutional racism,""homophobia,""sexism," and resentment compounded by frustration; campus similarities with the witch-hunting tendencies of colonial Salem, Massachusetts; the ethos of the egalitarian elite; and the culture of blame and other problems. Finally, the book details the changes necessary to reverse the disintegration of American colleges and universities and to restore academic excellence. (Individual chapters contain references.) (Ck)

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wir leben in einer technologischen Sackgasse. Zwar suggeriert die Globalisierung technischen Fortschritt, doch das vermeintlich Neue, sind vor allem Kopien des Bestehenden. Peter Thiel, Silicon-Valley-Insider und in der Wirtschaftscommunity bestens bekannter Innovationstreiber ist überzeugt: Globalisierung ist kein Fortschritt, Konkurrenz ist schädlich und nur Monopole sind nachhaltig erfolgreich. Er zeigt: Wahre Innovation entsteht nicht horizontal, sondern sprunghaft from Zero to One. Um die Zukunft zu erobern, reicht es nicht, der Beste zu sein. Gründer müssen aus dem Wettkampf des Immergleichen heraustreten und völlig neue Märkte erobern. Wie man wirklich Neues erfindet, enthüllt seine beeindruckende Anleitung zum visionären Querdenken. Ein Appell für einen Startup der ganzen Gesellschaft

Too many kids go to college( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Do too many people go to college? The belief that college is essential to reaching one's full potential is under fire. Student loan debt has surpassed credit card debt, unemployment for those with bachelor's degrees is at an all-time high, and entrepreneurs like the founders of Microsoft and Facebook prove that extraordinary success is possible without graduating college. But recent studies show that college is economically beneficial even to those whose jobs don't require it. Is it still the best way to ensure social mobility, or is America's love affair with higher education unjustified?
