For nearly two years, Darrin has been the sole audio engineer for a local radio show in his home town. As Darrin listened to many of the business leaders who came on the show, eventually meeting them in person, and connecting with them through social media, he began to realize that many of the leaders were coaches, and speakers with powerful, life-changing messages. Many of them had taken to social media to share their message with the world. However, in many cases, Darrin noticed the missing ingredient that could truly unlock the potential of their messages and bring them the revenue they needed to keep changing lives. While their messages were on point, they needed to take their quality to a higher level! The videos they shot had poor audio, lighting, backgrounds, or all of the above. The audio on their CDs, podcasts, and other projects didn't have that professional “polish” or “sheen” to it. Darrin heard and saw a need. Darrin began sharing tips with these leaders to help them improve their production quality, even attending conferences, and turning his hotel rooms into makeshift “studios” to record audio professionally for them so they could hear the difference. This effort only had a limited reach and impact though, and Darrin realized this. So he began shooting videos of his own to explain ways the leaders could improve their production quality. These videos covered various topics, mainly having to do with audio. However, through continued conversations and recording sessions with these leaders, Darrin saw an even bigger need. A step-by-step guide to help these coaches take their production quality to the next level! So in order to help more people at once, he drew on his 15+ years experience in the audio/visual production world to catalog best practices, tricks & tips, and recommendations on affordable gear into one publication - his first - Set the Tone! 1.

Charles H. Ferguson, who electrified the world with his Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, now explains how a predator elite took over the country, step by step, and he exposes the networks of academic, financial, and political influence, in all recent administrations, that prepared the predators' path to conquest. Over the last several decades, the United States has undergone one of the most radical social and economic transformations in its history. Finance has become America's dominant industry, while manufacturing, even for high technology industries, has nearly disappeared. The financial sector has become increasingly criminalized, with the widespread fraud that caused the housing bubble going completely unpunished. Federal tax collections as a share of GDP are at their lowest level in 60 years, with the wealthy and highly profitable corporations enjoying the greatest tax reductions. Most shockingly, the United States, so long the beacon of opportunity for the ambitious poor, has become one of the world's most unequal and unfair societies. If you're smart and a hard worker, but your parents aren't rich, you're now better off being born in Munich, Germany, or in Singapore than in Cleveland, Ohio, or New York. This radical shift did not happen by accident. Ferguson shows how, since the Reagan administration in the 1980s, both major political parties have become captives of the moneyed elite. It was the Clinton administration that dismantled the regulatory controls that protected the average citizen from avaricious financiers. It was the Bush team that destroyed the federal revenue base with its grotesquely skewed tax cuts for the rich. And it is the Obama White House that has allowed financial criminals to continue to operate unchecked, even after supposed "reforms" installed after the collapse of 2008. Predator Nation reveals how once-revered figures like 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Shapiro. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003086/bk_rand_003086_sample.mp3.

For 20 years, Great Place to Work has published its gold-standard list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, which appears first in Fortune magazine. But its latest research shows that what was good enough to be a “great” workplace 10 or 20 years ago is not good enough now. Even at the best workplaces, leaders can - and must - do better. The vital differentiator for companies now is their people - all their people. CEO Michael C. Bush and his team connect the dots to show how the emerging economy is about developing every ounce of human potential. Today's business climate is defined by speed, rapidly evolving social technologies, and customers and employees who expect values, not just value. As a result, leaders have to create an outstanding culture for all, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. They must build a Great Place to Work for All. The authors share new research on how Great Places to Work for All outperform in the stock market and grow revenue three times faster than less-inclusive rivals. Bush and his team tell surprising, inspiring stories about how closing gaps in the work experience between groups of employees pays off for everyone. They document the ways Great Places to Work for All benefit the individuals working there and contribute to a better global society. And they introduce a new leadership framework, showing the advantages of what the authors define as Level 5 “For All” leaders. The times demand executives who not only are business-savvy but are devoted to fairness, have deep faith in people, and empower all individuals to reach their full potential. This is a call to lead so organizations bring out the best in everyone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wes Bleed. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/107665/bk_acx0_107665_sample.mp3.

Indian Railways, the world's third largest network and one among the largest employers, has been contributing to the industrial, economic and social development of the country. It faced a severe financial crisis in 2001 which resulted in abnormal hike in freight rate. This coupled with lack of customer oriented services, led to giving up of its market share to roadways. However, certain measures taken to control cost and increase revenue brought IR from the acute financial crisis to a noticeable success which is technically known as 'turnaround'. The present study was undertaken in a situation where there has been a disagreement in respect of factors that contributed to turnaround. Research, being a fact finding enquiry, concentrates on identifying these factors.SR, the fifth largest zone in IR, with its lines spread over the southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, stood an exception to the general phenomenon of increased surplus. So, the researcher makes an attempt to study to what extent the turnaround measures have improved the financial performance in SR. The book is a must read for academicians, administrators, beaurocrats, policy-makers and aspiring researchers.
This book contains a collection of four independent research papers on the economics of professional team sports leagues.In Chapter 2 we will present a basic model of talent investment in a team sports league. This model may give the reader a deeper understanding of the associative character of competition. No team can improve its position in the standings without worsening the position of other teams. Since sporting and economic success are usually correlated, this rank order contest may result in destructive competition. Our analysis can explain why clubs are caught in a typical prisoners’ dilemma type of equilibrium and why clubs tend to ’overinvest’ in playing talent. The model will incorporate typical features of team sports leagues such as an endogenous league prize, additional exogenous prizes and a system of promotion and relegation.In Chapters 3 and 4 we will extend our analysis by incorporating with the clubs and the players also the consumers (fans). We will derive fan demand from a general utility function by assuming that a fan’s willingness to pay depends on the quality of the match/league. This approach will enable us to provide a full-fledged welfare analysis of a sports league. In Chapter 3 we take the currently intensive discussions of the leading European football clubs to introduce salary caps as a motivation to analyze their welfare effects. Financial disparity and spiralling wages have triggered this debate in Europe. Using a game-theoretical model of a league consisting of both small- and large-market clubs we will investigate the effect of salary caps on competitive balance, the aggregate salary payments and social welfare. In Chapter 4 we analyze the welfare effect of one of the most common means of redistribution in a sports league - gate revenue-sharing. In its simplest form, gate revenue-sharing allows the visiting club to retain a share of the home club’s gate revenues. By means of a contest model with two asymmetric clubs, we will analyze the effect of alternative gate revenue-sharing arrangements on the investment behavior, competitive balance, club profits and social welfare.In Chapter 5 we turn our attention towards the labour-market of the European football leagues and will analyze the role of transfer restrictions. Transfer restrictions have a long tradition in professional football, but have come under heavy attack in recent years. The transfer system imposed by the football governing bodies on employment relations made sure that a player could not leave his current club and sign with another club without the current club’s explicit consent. The 1995 Bosman judgement of the European Court of Justice, declaring football players to be free agents after expiration of their contracts, and the 2001 intervention of the European Commission, which, among other things, limited contract durations in football, can be interpreted as the two major steps towards restricting the application of the transfer system. We will develop a theoretical model which captures an important and widely overlooked aspect of the employment relation in professional football: the allocation of risk. Players and clubs alike do not know how the productivity of a player will develop in future periods. If risk is the key driver behind the performance uncertainty of football players then there is a potential for value creation in this industry. Risk-averse players could buy insurance against future income uncertainty when contracting with risk-neutral clubs. Our model will analyze whether risk-averse football players really benefit from less restrictive transfer systems.The book concludes in Chapter 6 with a short discussion and a summary of the main results.
Inadequate state subsidy, and purely monetary interpretation of the private social rates of return from state Universities combined with the view that not all beneficiaries of public subsidies are students from poor background has led to a situation where there is a demand that the beneficiaries, that is parents and students be made to share the cost of providing University education. Furthermore, the need for cost effectiveness and supplementary income to argument public subsidy also pushed universities to devise cost sharing, cost cutting and revenue generation schemes.The economic downturn changed the funding systems in state universities with some being quick to adopt while slow ones continued to struggle.The pain on parents and students also led to acceptance of reality
Fiscal adjustment is necessary at Central and State levels for the attainment of macroeconomic stability and growth. The significant share of all State deficits in the combined deficits necessitates the need for fiscal adjustment at State level in India. Both the revenue and expenditure side reforms especially introduction of fiscal rules are part of these adjustment measures. As a result, majority of the States have attained improvement in their deficit indicators. However, some states are still continuing with higher deficits. The improvement in deficit indicators by reduction in developmental expenditure especially health and education has a negative impact on the social and economic development of a nation, which in turn becomes detrimental to the macro-economy in the long run.
