Es geht um unser Leben, sagt Carl Amery in seiner brisanten Streitschrift. Unsere Welt wird im neuen Jahrtausend, beschleunigt durch den Sieg des Totalen Marktes, zusammenbrechen und unbewohnbar werden. Zentrale Aufgabe für die historischen Kirchen der Christenheit im 21. Jahrhundert muss es deshalb sein, den Kampf gegen die Religion des Totalen Marktes aufzunehmen und für eine funktionierende Zukunftsgesellschaft zu wirken. Wie kann die Erde als bewohnbarer Planet erhalten bleiben? Die lateinamerikanische Befreiungskirche könnte ein Beispiel sein für den Exodus aus dem ´´Sklavenhaus des globalen Kapitalismus´´. Was hindert die Kirchen daran, diesen Weg einzuschlagen?

Brexit, also called British Exit, refers to the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union. This has long been a political accomplishment that has been pursued by many individuals, political parties, and advocacy groups. This has been the idea of these persons since the United Kingdom joined the EU in 1973. The withdrawal of member countries has been a right of the EU´s membership since 2007, fully addressed under Article 50 of the Treaty on the European Union. In June 2016, Britain held a referendum on the matter and the result saw 51.9% voting to exit the EU while 48.1% to remain. Britain´s departure from the European Union is filled with propaganda and myth but the risks are very real. Brexit could lower global status of the United Kingdom, diminish its quality of life, and throw its legal system into turmoil. This is an audiobook about the Brexit phenomenon, stripped of the wishful thinking of its supporters in the media and Parliament. It is the real picture of a country about to undergo a sharp and self-inflicted isolation. This book is for people who still believe in evidence and in experts. 1. Language: English.

For listeners of On Tyranny and Why Nations Fail, a bracing look at the demise of liberal democracies around the world - and a road map for rescuing our own. Donald Trump´s presidency has raised a question that many of us never thought we´d be asking: Is our democracy in danger? Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent two decades studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin America, and they believe the answer is yes. Democracy no longer ends with a bang - in a revolution or military coup - but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms. The good news is that there are many exit ramps on the road to authoritarianism. The bad news is that, by electing Trump, we may have already passed the first one. Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how democracies die - and how ours can be saved. 1.

Most technology startups never make it to the funding stage, and only a small percentage of those that are venture-backed generate a positive return for their investors. An even smaller number of startup founders enjoy a truly prosperous exit. Bernd Schoner cofounded his tech startup during the dot-com bust, navigated it through market crises and internal turmoil, brought it through the global financial meltdown intact, and eventually sold it to a multibillion-dollar, multinational public technology company. In The Tech Entrepreneur´s Survival Guide, Bernd shares what he learned and what he wished he knew at the time. He explains the major phases in a technology company´s life cycle, helping entrepreneurs avoid common pitfalls and survive crises when they strike. He guides readers from the initial bootstrapping process through venture-capital financing and provides valuable advice on how to sell a technology company profitably - even in a challenging economic environment. Every chapter presents solutions to real world issues that could otherwise have fatal consequences for a tech venture. Written with deep insight, refreshing candor, and a dash of humor, this comprehensive guide to the often harsh realities of startup life is indispensable for entrepreneurs at any stage. 1.
