Told with just a touch of whimsy, this book reminds you that you have the power of the Universe within you. Scared to migrate for the season, a young bird is supported by his grandfather and others who have made the journey before. He becomes receptive to the 'Flock Mind' and gives himself over to the power of the 'Great Wing.' As readers make the journey with the flock, they rediscover that individual potential is tied into the power of the common good by way of attributes such as honesty, hope, courage, trust, perseverance, spirituality and service. The young bird's trials and tribulations, as well as his triumph, are the readers'.

The Great Inflation in the 1960s and 1970s, notes award-winning columnist Robert J. Samuelson, played a crucial role in transforming American politics, economy, and everyday life. The direct consequences included stagnation in living standards, a growing belief—both in America and abroad—that the great-power status of the United States was ending, and Ronald Reagan’s election to the presidency in 1980. But that is only half the story. The end of high inflation led to two decades of almost uninterrupted economic growth, rising stock prices and ever-increasing home values. Paradoxically, this prolonged prosperity triggered the economic and financial collapse of 2008 and 2009 by making Americans—from bank executives to ordinary homeowners—overconfident, complacent, and careless.  The Great Inflation and its Aftermath , Samuelson contends, demonstrated that we have not yet escaped the boom-and-bust cycles common in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This is a sobering tale essential for anyone who wants to understand today’s world.

Reinhard Mohn, legendary entrepreneur and father of the global media giant Bertelsmann, offers penetrating insights into his motives, beliefs, and hopes as one of the world’s foremost businesspeople. Reinhard Mohn has grappled with the political and cultural changes of recent decades like few other entrepreneurs of his time. In this deeply personal book, Mohn, for the first time, describes his entrepreneurial development in the context of his own fascinating personal experiences. A Global Lesson  plumbs the extraordinary depth of Mohn’s life, from his Protestant upbringing and his time as a German soldier in an American POW camp during World War II to his socially conscious choices as a young businessman. The hopes and challenges of booming 1950s Germany influenced Mohn’s early years as an entrepreneur in many ways. He quickly understood that to be successful he had to combine economic thinking with social responsibility. Furthermore, as he guided Bertelsmann’s evolution from a medium-sized company to a global media corporation, he realized how important it was to seek dialogue with other cultures. Through it all–from the period of German rebuilding after the war through the age of globalization–Mohn fostered a successful corporate culture that served as a model for business leaders across the globe. A Global Lesson  reveals the motives that guided Mohn’s development, and shares how his family origins and personal experiences shaped his life’s work. His story is also a testament to his leadership. Throughout his life and career, Mohn has promoted a unique and important philosophy: economic thinking and democratic culture cannot be in opposition–and only by standing up for humanity can we master the challenges of global cooperation.
