A Country Is Not a Company

Nobel-Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman argues that business leaders need to understand the differences between economic policy on the national and international scale and business strategy on the organizational scale. Economists deal with the closed system of a national economy, whereas executives live in the open-system world of business. Moreover, economists know that an economy must be run on the basis of general principles, but businesspeople are forever in search of the particular brilliant strategy. Krugman's article serves to elucidate the world of economics for businesspeople who are so close to it and yet are continually frustrated by what they see. Since 1922, Harvard Business Review has been a leading source of breakthrough management ideas-many of which still speak to and influence us today. The Harvard Business Review Classics series now offers readers the opportunity to make these seminal pieces a part of your permanent management library. Each highly readable volume contains a groundbreaking idea that continues to shape best practices and inspire countless managers around the world-and will have a direct impact on you today and for years to come.

Baroke Obummer is a play about a man and his vision. As President of the Insolvent States, he espouses a view that government should meet the needs of the people by creating a system of taxation that redistributes wealth to benefit the poor at the expense of the wealthy. Baroke spends a day in the Offal Office during which he receives a series of visitors who come to express the interests of whatever group they represent. He meets with two social workers, two union leaders, Robert Bisby the businessman, Rham Beau (The White House Chief of Graft), Antsy Paloozer (Speaker of the Madhouse), and two members of the tea party. He listens to their appeals for assistance, their political philosophies, and their views of how government can best serve the people. The two-act play exposes political forces prominent in modern America, from libertarian to socialist, and those in between. There are moments of levity, such as when he receives phone calls from various prominent people including Miss Monica Diddledooski. It s a play about economic and political ideas. It s about social justice. Some of the action might appear to parallel recent historical events, but the story is so unbelievable it surely must be fictitious.

Poverty, Agency, and Human Rights collects thirteen new essays that analyze how human agency relates to poverty and human rights respectively as well as how agency mediates issues concerning poverty and social and economic human rights. No other collection of philosophical papers focuses on the diverse ways poverty impacts the agency of the poor, the reasons why poverty alleviation schemes should also promote the agency of beneficiaries, and the fitness of the human rights regime to secure both economic development and free agency. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 considers the diverse meanings of poverty both from the standpoint of the poor and from that of the relatively well-off. Part 2 examines morally appropriate responses to poverty on the part of persons who are better-off and powerful institutions. Part 3 identifies economic development strategies that secure the agency of the beneficiaries. Part 4 addresses the constraints poverty imposes on agency in the context of biomedical research, migration for work, and trafficking in persons.
