At a time of historic shifts in the underlying dynamics of the world economy, not to mention great uncertainties hanging over the course of economic policy, Jim O'Neill provides a critical roadmap to understanding what really matters over the next several years and beyond. -- Jeffrey Garten, Juan Trippe Professor of International Trade and Finance; Former Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade, Clinton Administration Jim O'Neill can claim credit for transforming a debate and coining a term that has entered our lexicon: BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China). Here he shares a range of insights as to why these large economies are not the powers of the future, but "the powers of the present." -- Linda Yueh, Chief Business Correspondent for BBC News In this physically slim but seriously thought-provoking book, Jim O'Neill suggests the key policy lessons of the success of the BRICs and other fast-growing emerging market and developing economies for the advanced countries. It is a subject we all need to understand, and this is a very good place to start. -- Stanley Fischer, former Governor of the Bank of Israel, former Number 2 at the International Monetary Fund, and former Chief Economist at the World Bank A demonstration of Jim O'Neill's mastery of smart economics and unwavering commitment to global development, this book provides both food for thought and a way forward for policymakers worldwide. It is also a wake-up call for those in denial about the urgent need for the reform of institutions of global governance. -- Ngozi Okonjo-Iweal, Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Finance Minister Nigeria and former Managing Director of the World Bank

Consumers in Britain face a curious mix of taxes and duties that are messy, opaque and out of date. They are also unfair: the poorer you are, the more of your income goes on paying these taxes. At the same time, we are ceaselessly bombarded by marketing information that is very one-sided. The foods that make us fat, for example, are promoted a great deal more than the foods that could keep us healthy – and again it is mainly the poor who bear the brunt. This book draws on insights from behavioural economics, participative decision-making and the author’s twenty-five-year research career to take a fresh look at these issues. It concludes that there is a fair, inclusive, adaptable, affordable and resilient way of enabling us to eat healthily and to tackle the obesity crisis. The author proposes that negative VAT should be charged on healthy foods and high VAT should be charged on unhealthy foods. The book sets out a four-step process to actually implement this new regime, each step of which depends on mechanisms that have already been used by government. It is a bold yet practical proposition for tackling one of the most costly and damaging challenges we face.

Driverless cars are the future. That is what the tech giants, the auto industry and even the government want us to think. Almost daily there are media stories about how we will soon all be able to rip up our driving licences, sit in the back seat and let the car take us around. But is this really going to happen? Christian Wolmar has dug behind the hype and found a very different story. We are nowhere near this driverless utopia. Indeed it may prove to be impossible to reach. And even if it were achievable, does anyone want it? Far from reducing traffic and pollution, millions of zombie cars on the roads would make them worse. Wolmar looks at the technical and other difficulties that make this driverless future a very uncertain proposition. He finds that it is the tech companies and the auto manufacturers who are desperate to get us out of the driving seat, and argues that far from making the roads safer, driverless cars may well make them more dangerous. This entertaining polemic sets out the many technical, legal and moral problems that obstruct the path to a driverless future, and debunks many of the myths around that future’s purported benefits.

Since the global financial crisis in 2008, economics has dominated the news agenda, with issues such as migration, growth, trade and unemployment remaining hotly debated in the media. How to Report Economic News is an accessible introduction to our contemporary economic landscape and journalistic approaches to economic news coverage. Nicola Walton, an experienced financial journalist, presents a comprehensive guide to important economic indicators and how to report on them, as well as giving advice on identifying essential facts needed for any economic news story. The author also offers useful tips on journalistic writing that can help ensure articles are written clearly, concisely and with precision. To provide readers with further guidance, each chapter concludes with assignments to test your knowledge, a resource list for further reading and a glossary of key terms. Chapters cover key topics including inflation, monetary policy, labour markets, fiscal policy and residential property markets. The book takes the UK economy as its main focus, but also explores European, US and Japanese markets in depth. In addition, the title explores other major global topics such as the rise of Brazil, Russia, India, China (BRIC) economies and the role of multinational organisations such as the International Monetary Fund. By combining an overview of current financial systems and economic developments with instruction on economic reporting, this title is a valuable resource for students of Journalism, trainee journalists, as well as anyone interested in learning more about modern economics.

This two-volume book addresses the economic transformation occurring in China at present. The author investigates China's domestic and international policies, the impact of these policies on economic growth, and their effect on the quality of life for the people of China. In the first volume, the author distinguishes between economic growth and sustainable economic development, and discusses China's current and past economic policies towards growth. Chapters also explore the structural transformation of China's economy and its increasingly consumer-oriented nature. The second volume looks more specifically at the result of domestic policies on the quality of life for people living in China. The author examines the distribution of income, the alleviation of poverty, the Chinese education system, and the environmental cost of economic growth. These volumes will be of particular interest to researchers and scholars concerned with China's emerging economic power.

The global energy system faces urgent challenges. Concerns about energy security are growing, as highlighted by the recent political turmoil in Northern Africa and the nuclear incident in Fukushima. At the same time, the need to respond to climate change is more critical than ever. Against this background, many governments have increased efforts to promote deployment of renewable energy - low-carbon sources that can strengthen energy security. This has stimulated unprecedented rise in deployment, and renewables are now the fastest growing sector of the energy mix. This "coming of age" of renewable energy also brings challenges. Growth is focused on a few of the available technologies, and rapid deployment is confined to a relatively small number of countries. In more advanced markets, managing support costs and system integration of large shares of renewable energy in a time of economic weakness and budget austerity has sparked vigorous political debate.

China’s emphasis on infrastructure development has received support from African leaders. Its focus on infrastructure development in Africa was endorsed by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between China and the African Union on 27 January 2015. The agreement outline plans for connecting African countries through transportation infrastructure projects, including modern highways, airports, and high speed railways. At the heart of Belt and Road Initiative lies the creation of an economic land belt that includes countries on the original Silk Road through Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe, as well as a maritime “road” that links China’s port facilities with the African coast, pushing up through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean. China has from the outset emphasised that the Belt and Road Initiative will be developed within the framework of the five principles. These entails mutual respect for each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty; non-aggression; non-interference in each other’s internal affairs; equality and mutual benefit; and peaceful coexistence. This volume provides an analysis of this stance by both African and Chinese scholars. Africa through its Agenda 2063 has been driving, among others, the re-industrialisation of its economies, improved connectivity and infrastructure development, diversification of energy sources, technology transfer and skills development. The Belt and Road Initiative provides an alternative path for Africa to realise some of these milestones.

Written by experts and scholars from BRICS countries, with the support of BRICS governments, this is the first study to reflect on the capabilities and synergies of these economies. The report emphasizes best practices, areas of cooperation, and strengthening economic links so that BRICS can collectively play a central role in the post-crisis global economy.
