Financial fiasco : how America's infatuation with homeownership and easy money created the economic crisis by Johan Norberg( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Polish and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The story of this storm in the global markets is the story of how government intervention to solve previous crises laid the foundation for a new one," writes Johan Norberg in his important new book. Tracing the causes of our current financial crisis with liveliness and clarity, Financial Fiasco shows the mistakes made in Washington, on Wall Street, and in communities across America that led to the economic meltdown. While many analysts have placed the blame solely on Wall Street, Norberg exposes the crucial role government regulation played in creating the opportunities and incentives that led to the financial collapse." "In six concise chapters, Financial Fiasco tells the complex story of the crisis, showing how monetary policy, housing policy, and financial innovations combined to create financial catastrophe. The final two chapters describe the government's mismanagement of the crisis and how we are now dangerously repeating many of the very same mistakes that caused it. An understanding of the roots of the financial crisis is crucial for every American who has felt its effects - and would like to prevent the same disaster from happening again. Financial Fiasco provides that understanding, with great insight, clarity, and wit." "Just as important, the book serves as a profound warning against pursuing the wrong solutions. "After government authorities had helped create the worst financial crisis in generations, the climate of ideas has now shifted dramatically in the direction of bigger and more active government," Norberg writes. Financial Fiasco is the perfect antidote to those ideas, a cautionary tale on how to stop confusing the disease with the cure."--Jacket
In defense of global capitalism by Johan Norberg( Book )

58 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Defense of Global capitalism is the first book to rebut, systematically and thoroughly, the claims of the anti-globalization movement. With facts, statistics, and graphs, Norberg shows why capitalism is in the process of creating a better world. The book is written in a conversational style with an emphasis on liberal values and the opportunities and freedom that globalization brings to the world's poor." "Norberg takes on the tough issues - economic growth, freedom vs. equality, free trade and fair trade, international debt, child labor, cultural imperialism - and concludes that free-market capitalism is the best route out of global poverty."--Jacket
Progress : ten reasons to look forward to the future by Johan Norberg( Book )

21 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's on the televisions, in the papers and in our minds. Every day we're bludgeoned by news of how bad everything is - financial collapse, unemployment, growing poverty, environmental disasters, disease, hunger, war. But the rarely acknowledged reality is that the economic and social progress of the past few decades has been unprecedented and that by almost any index you care to identify, things are markedly better now than they have ever been for almost everyone alive.Examining official data from the world's most trusted institutions like the United Nations, the World Bank and the World Health Organization, political commentator Johan Norberg traces just how far we have come in tackling the greatest global problems. None of them have been eradicated, but as Norberg shows we now have a good idea of the solutions and have started to implement them in most areas. We know what it will take to see this progress continue. Dramatic, uplifting and sure to be divisive, Progress is a call for optimism in our pessimistic, doom-laden world
Globalization is good by Johan Norberg( Visual )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Controversial writer Johan Norberg argues forcefully for one side of the globalization debate. In this program he examines three developing countries and how they fit into that debate, building a case for deregulation, the abolishment of subsidies and tariffs, and a long-term view of industrialization. He frankly defends the use of sweatshop labor, through which Taiwan has cultivated a vigorous, targeted manufacturing sector and transformed agrarian poverty into affluence. Praising Vietnam for following the same path and criticizing Kenya as an unfortunate example of isolationism, Norberg's assertions compose a powerful catalyst for classroom discussion."--Container

New Europe : the Baltic states( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discover a New Europe, hidden for half a century behind the Iron Curtain. In 2004, ten new countries joined the European Union. The New Europe series uncovers their natural beauty, unusual history and ethnic cultures. Each episode explores one of the three Baltic States: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. A knowledgeable off-screen narrator guides an ideal tour of both cities and countrysides. The soundtrack uses only local music, from ancient songs played with knee harps, bagpipes or birchbark horns to the latest jazz and modern music. Unique, nearly unknown museums are visited, such as those for bees, horses, witches, paleo-astronomy and Soviet sculptures. Filmed during different seasons, the series highlights the area's natural beauty. Folk holidays are featured, from Mardi Gras to Midsummer, held in striking natural settings, along with folk art and unusual folk beliefs. History is revealed from the Baltic Crusades, when medieval fighting monks battled their local tribes, Europe's last pagans, to the turbulent 20th century's revolutions, Republics and occupations by Nazis and the USSR. Produced by Americans resident in the region with the help of local experts, this series combines a sophisticated Western outlook with sympathetic native knowledge. New Europe--the Baltic States is a pioneering first look at an unknown Europe, of walled medieval towns, of island castles, of centuries old spas and unspoiled seashores
