Douglas W. Hubbard, How to Measure Anything

Anything can be measured. This bold assertion is the key to solving many problems in business and life in general. The myth that certain things can′t be measured is a significant drain on our nation′s economy, public welfare, the environment, and even national security.

Annie Leonard, The Story of Stuff

Annie Leonard tracks the life of the Stuff we use every day—where our cotton T-shirts, laptop computers, and aluminum cans come from, how they are produced, distributed and consumed, and where they go when we throw them out. Like Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, The Story of Stuff is a landmark book that will change the way people think—and the way they live.

F. A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

F. A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

The Road to Serfdom remains one of the all-time classics of twentieth-century intellectual thought. For over half a century, it has inspired politicians and thinkers around the world, and has had a crucial impact on our political and cultural history. With trademark brilliance, Hayek argues convincingly that, while socialist ideals may be tempting, they cannot be accomplished except by means that few would approve of. Addressing economics, fascism, history, socialism and the Holocaust, Hayek unwraps the trappings of socialist ideology. He reveals to the world that little can result from such ideas except oppression and tyranny. Today, more than fifty years on, Hayek’s warnings are just as valid as when The Road to Serfdom was first published.

Donella H. Meadows, Jørgen Randers, Dennis Meadows; Limits to Growth

In 1972, three scientists from MIT created a computer model that analyzed global resource consumption and production. Their results shocked the world and created stirring conversation about global ‘overshoot,’ or resource use beyond the carrying capacity of the planet. Now, preeminent environmental scientists Donella Meadows, Jørgen Randers, and Dennis Meadows have teamed up again to update and expand their original findings in Limits to Growth: The 30-Year Update.

Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine

Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine

Based on breakthrough historical research and four years of on-the-ground reporting in disaster zones, The Shock Doctrine explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Disaster capitalism — the rapid-fire corporate reengineering of societies that are reeling from shock — did not begin with September 11, 2001. In this courageous new book, Klein traces the intellectual origins of disaster capitalism back to the University of Chicago’s economic department under Milton Friedman, whose influence is still felt around the world. The Shock Doctrine draws new and surprising connections among economic policy, “shock and awe” warfare and the covert CIA-funded experiments in electroshock and sensory deprivation that shaped the torture manuals used today in Guantánamo Bay.
