This book addresses fundamental questions of the quality of the human experience-the experience you have every day, as you relate to your own self, to others, to groups, to nature, and to spirit. It turns out that there are some very fundamental agreements that we tend to unconsciously accept that have a major influence on our daily experience; agreements that we would not accept if we could see them clearly. In over twenty years of this work, I have found that people tend to change their basic agreements, when they are able to consciously choose them. In Ecosynomics: The Science of Abundance I show you how to see the agreements and how to consciously choose the ones you want. I also show you what we at the Institute for Strategic Clarity have learned with colleagues around the world; that there a tens of thousands of groups of people who have already figured out how to choose energy-enhancing, outcome-improving agreements. I show you that they do this by starting from a very different place than most of us do: they start from an assumption that the world is full of potential, whereas most of us start from an assumption of scarcity. It turns out that this makes all the difference in the world, and in this book I show you why. The book follows the experience-reflection-framework-examples-process methodology. It all starts with what you know from your own experience. I show you how you can know, at any moment, the quality of the experience you are having and the outcomes it generates. I then provide a well tested, easy-to-remember way of reflecting on the quality of and outcomes from that experience. The Ecosynomics framework then describes the agreements that you make or accept that most influence that experience. In addition to the examples that are interwoven throughout each chapter, Part 4 of the book provides four in-depth, real-world case studies where processes for working with agreements are introduced.

Selections from great writings on economics, annotated and introduced by a distinguished economist and teacher. Author of The Worldly Philosophers, a 3-million-copy seller, Robert Heilbroner offers here a compendium of readings from the "worldly philosophers" themselves. The selections range from the earliest economic thought to such towering volumes as Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations, Thomas Malthus's Essay on the Principle of Population, David Ricardo's Principles of Political Economy, and John Maynard Keynes's The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money. Acting as "a docent, not merely an editor," he takes the reader through the core arguments with "brilliantly clear commentary" (New York Times Book Review).

The bestselling classic that examines the history of economic thought from Adam Smith to Karl Marx—“all the economic lore most general readers conceivably could want to know, served up with a flourish” (The New York Times). The Worldly Philosophers not only enables us to see more deeply into our history but helps us better understand our own times. In this seventh edition, Robert L. Heilbroner provides a new theme that connects thinkers as diverse as Adam Smith and Karl Marx. The theme is the common focus of their highly varied ideas—namely, the search to understand how a capitalist society works. It is a focus never more needed than in this age of confusing economic headlines. In a bold new concluding chapter entitled “The End of the Worldly Philosophy?” Heilbroner reminds us that the word “end” refers to both the purpose and limits of economics. This chapter conveys a concern that today’s increasingly “scientific” economics may overlook fundamental social and political issues that are central to economics. Thus, unlike its predecessors, this new edition provides not just an indispensable illumination of our past but a call to action for our future.

Listen to people in every field and you'll hear a call for more sophisticated leadership—for leaders who can solve more complex problems than the human race has ever faced. But these leaders won't simply come to the fore; we have to develop them, and we must cultivate them as quickly as is humanly possible. Changing on the Job is a means to this end. As opposed to showing readers how to play the role of a leader in a "paint by numbers" fashion, Changing on the Job builds on theories of adult growth and development to help readers become more thoughtful individuals, capable of leading in any scenario. Moving from the theoretical to the practical, and employing real-world examples, author Jennifer Garvey Berger offers a set of building blocks to help cultivate an agile workforce while improving performance. Coaches, HR professionals, thoughtful leaders, and anyone who wants to flourish on the job will find this book a vital resource for developing their own capacities and those of the talent that they support.
