#1 Bestseller in Business and Money
A Top 3 'Start Your Own Business' Book of 2015 -Inc
The rapid development of technology and globalization has changed the leverage points in accumulating wealth: money, meaning and freedom.
Those that don’t adapt are becoming trapped in the downward spiral of a dying middle class - working harder and earning less.
Entrepreneurs that understand the new paradigm, have created unprecedented wealth in their lives and the lives of those they love.
The End of Jobs has been called one of the best entrepreneur books of 2015 and one of the top three how to start an online business books by Inc.com.
In This Book You’ll Learn:
- Why the century-long growth in wages came to a halt in 2000.
- Why MBAs and JDs can’t get jobs and what that means for the future of work and your job.
- Why The Theory of Constraints and a shift into the Fourth Economy has made entrepreneurship the highest-leveraged career path for the young and ambitious.
- Why The Turkey Problem means accounting may be the riskiest profession in the 21st century while entrepreneurship may be the safest.
- How entrepreneurs with second-rate degrees are leveraging the radical democracy of the Long Tail to get rich.
- How the Stair Step Method and return of apprenticeships have transformed the “entrepreneurial leap" to make entrepreneurship at large, and small business entrepreneurship in particular, more accessible than ever.
- The scientific research on how giving up balanced living and embracing integrated living leads to more money, more meaning, and more freedom.
- Why a 20th century world view to career search questions like “What career is right for me?” and “How do I find a career?” could be the source of your frustration (and a better way to think about it)

When Markets Collide is a timely alert to the fundamental changes taking place in today's global economic and financial systems--and a call to action for investors who may fall victim to misinterpreting important signals. While some have tended to view asset class mispricings as mere “noise,” this compelling book shows why they are important signals of opportunities and risks that will shape the market for years to come. One of today's most respected names in finance, Mohamed El-Erian puts recent events in their proper context, giving you the tools that can help you interpret the markets, benefit from global economic change, and navigate the risks.
The world economy is in the midst of a series of hand-offs. Global growth is now being heavily influenced by nations that previously had little or no systemic influence. Former debtor nations are building unforeseen wealth and, thus, enjoying unprecedented influence and facing unusual challenges. And new derivative products have changed the behavior of many market segments and players. Yet, despite all these changes, the system's infrastructure is yet to be upgraded to reflect the realities of today's and tomorrow's world. El-Erian investigates the underlying drivers of global change to shed light on how you should:
- Think about the new opportunities and risks
- Construct an appropriately diversified and internationalized portfolio
- Protect your portfolio against new sources of systemic risk
- Best think about the impact of central banks and financial policies around the world
- Offering up predictions of future developments, El-Erian directs his focus to help you capitalize on the new financial landscape, while limiting exposure to new risk configurations.
When Markets Collide is a unique collection of books for investors and policy makers around the world. In addition to providing a thorough analysis and clear perspective of recent events, it lays down a detailed map for navigating your way through an otherwise perplexing new economic landscape.

Behar shows that if you think of your staff as people (not labor costs) they will achieve amazing results. He discusses the importance of building trust, telling hard truths, thinking independently, and more. And he shares inside stories of key turning points for Starbucks, as it fought to hang on to its culture while growing exponentially.
