How To Shrink the Human Footprint: And How Going Back To Nature Would Be a Disaster For Nature
June 2, 2010 - By: Matt Ridley

Plenitude: A Statement On Economics, Ecology & True Wealth
June 2, 2010 - By: Juliet Schor
71 "GNP is increasingly de-linked from the well-being of most Americans. Since the mid 1970s, it has diverged from most social well-being indicators. So even if GNP does continue to grow, and the recession is officially declared over, the implications for most households are different from in the past."

168 Hours: The Blank Slate of Time
June 2, 2010 - By: Laura Vanderkam
71 “It is an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are all starved for time. With the rise of 2-income families, extreme jobs, and the ability to log on to the world around the clock, we can barely find time to breathe. At least that’s the way the story goes.”

Management By Shared Mindset: Leadership That Makes Work Meaningful and Profitable At the Same Time
June 2, 2010 - By: Dave Ulrich & Wendy Ulrich
71 "The economic recession may have led to a emotional recession at work. In this emotional recession, leaders need not only to make bold business decisions, they also need to be sensitive to the meaning that comes from how those decisions are made."

Achieving Predictable Success
June 2, 2010 - By: Les McKeown
71 "As a serial entrepreneur who has personally launched over 40 businesses, and as a consultant and coach to hundreds of business leaders, I’ve come to realize that the 'growth code' is out there, in plain view for anyone who knows where to look. There is indeed a code, a pattern, a DNA if you will, to achieving predictable success."

June 2, 2010 - By: Mark Sanborn
71 “LOVE is a four-letter word in the business world. It makes us uncomfortable. It seems inappropriate or even taboo.

It can also make you and your work irresistible."

Issue 70

May 5, 2010 - By: Richard Laermer
70 "The point here is not to be famous. Being famous is a job best left to those who care about little else. This is about being an authority and using your fame to achieve greatness. It’s about getting what you want and what you deserve. And getting it right now.”

Living in a Bubble: How Speculative Mania in Home Mortgages Underwrote the Great Recession
May 5, 2010 - By: Roger Lowenstein
70 "With credit cheap, Americans flocked to refinance their homes and to bid up the prices of new ones. This much was predictable. But the mortgage boom of the early 2000s was unlike others."

Renting the Dream: Housing in America After the Great Reset
May 5, 2010 - By: Richard Florida
70 "We’ve been here before. Not just now, but at two other critical times in the last 150 years—in the 1870s and the 1930s—the economy caved in and depressions ensued. Both times, however, we emerged from those dark times healthier and wealthier than before. And it can happen again.”

The Power of Passionate Creatives
May 5, 2010 - By: John Hagel III, John Seely Brown and Lang Davison
70 "But all too often those who are passionate about their work are frustrated with their employers and bosses. They are not satisfied. Far from it. They want to do more, but they feel held back. This manifesto is for them—the 'passionate creatives' of the world. Together passionate creatives have more power than they realize."
