Death by China

The world´s most populous nation and soon-to-be largest economy is rapidly turning into the planet´s most efficient assassin. Unscrupulous Chinese entrepreneurs are flooding world markets with lethal products. China´s perverse form of capitalism combines illegal mercantilist and protectionist weapons to pick off American industries, job by job. China´s emboldened military is racing towards head-on confrontation with the U.S. Meanwhile, America´s executives, politicians, and even academics remain silent about the looming threat. Now, best-selling author and noted economist Peter Navarro meticulously exposes every form of ´´Death by China,´´ drawing on the latest trends and events to show a relationship spiraling out of control. Navarro reveals: How thousands of Chinese cyber dissidents are being imprisoned in ´´Google Gulags´´; how Chinese hackers are escalating coordinated cyberattacks on U.S. defense and America´s key businesses; how China´s undervalued currency is damaging the U.S., Europe, and the global recovery; why American companies are discovering that the risks of operating in China are even worse than they imagined; how China is promoting nuclear proliferation in its pursuit of oil; and how the media distorts the China story--including a ´´Hall of Shame´´ of America´s worst China apologists. This book doesn´t just catalogue China´s abuses: It presents a call to action and a survival guide for a critical juncture in America´s history--and the world´s.

You can say goodbye to today´s Internet, New York Times best-selling author George Gilder says. Soon the current model of aggregated free content populated with ´´value-subtracted´´ advertising will die a natural death, due, of course, to the simple fact that absolutely no one wants to see online advertising. What will tomorrow´s Internet look like?In Life After Google, Gilder takes listeners on a brilliant, rocketing journey into the very near-future, into an Internet with a new ´´bitcoin-bitgold´´ transaction layer that will replace spam with seamless micro-payments and provide an all-new standard for global money. 1.

The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Deat...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Myth of Capitalism tells the story of how America has gone from an open, competitive marketplace to an economy where a few very powerful companies dominate key industries that affect our daily lives. Digital monopolies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon act as gatekeepers to the digital world. Amazon is capturing almost all online shopping dollars. We have the illusion of choice, but for most critical decisions, we have only one or two companies, when it comes to high speed internet, health insurance, medical care, mortgage title insurance, social networks, internet searches, or even consumer goods like toothpaste. Every day, the average American transfers a little of their paycheck to monopolists and oligopolists. The solution is vigorous anti-trust enforcement to return America to a period where competition created higher economic growth, more jobs, higher wages, and a level playing field for all. The Myth of Capitalism is the story of industrial concentration, but it matters to everyone, because the stakes could not be higher. It tackles the big questions of: why the US is becoming a more unequal society, why economic growth is anemic despite trillions of dollars of federal debt and money printing, why the number of start-ups has declined, and why workers are losing out.

Meet the visionaries, billionaires, professors, and programmers who are using groundbreaking technology to push the limits of the human body - our senses, our intelligence, and our lifespans Once relegated to the fringes of society, transhumanism (the use of technology to enhance human intellectual and physical capability) is now poised to enter our cultural mainstream. It has found adherents in Silicon Valley billionaires Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis. Google has entered the picture, establishing a biotech subsidiary aimed at solving the problem of aging. In To Be a Machine, journalist Mark O´Connell takes a headlong dive into this burgeoning movement. He travels to the laboratories, conferences, and basements of today´s foremost transhumanists, where he´s presented with the staggering possibilities and moral quandaries of new technologies like mind uploading, artificial superintelligence, cryonics, and device implants. A contributor to Slate, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine, O´Connell serves as a sharp and lively guide to the outer limits of technology in the 21st century. In investigating what it means to be a machine, he offers a surprising, singular meditation on what it means to be human. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Garnon.

Save the Planet: An Amazonian Tribal Leader Fig...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Almir Narayamoga Surui, the Amazonian tribal chieftain of the indigenous Surui people, is a leader in the fight to save the rainforest not only for the preservation of his land and people, but for the Earth´s and humanity´s survival as well. Joining forces with such high-tech corporations as Apple and Google Earth, Surui has become a guardian of his people and a global activist, despite death threats and million-dollar bounties on his head. A recipient of the Global Citizen Award in 2012, Surui has calculated the direct cost of the loss of our rainforests - ´´the lungs of the Earth´´ - in terms of the total amount of CO2 that their destruction would release into the atmosphere, and the monetary loss that this would entail, and by using this carbon deficit formula, has leased access to pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies who have joined him in the stewardship of these endangered lands, their flora, fauna, and people. 1.
