Business Cycles by Sumru G. AltugThis book provides an overview of the modern theory and empirics of business cycles. Written by one of the pioneering authors in this field, it examines the notion of a business cycle and discusses alternative approaches to modeling. Arguably, one of the most important debates in this literature has been the issue of "matching" a business cycle to the data. In their original contribution, Kydland and Prescott (1982) proposed the method of calibration as a way of examining the implications of a business cycle model; yet, even at its inception, this approach came under criticism from a variety of sources. This monograph will examine some of these criticisms and discuss alternative approaches that have been put forward. More generally, it will discuss what lies ahead for modern business cycle theory.
Leadership and Ethics by Jacqueline Boaks (Editor); Michael P. Levine (Editor)Contemporary discussions about the nature of leadership abound. But what constitutes a good leader? Are ethics and leadership even compatible? Accounts of leadership often lie at either end of an ethical spectrum: on one end are accounts that argue ethics are intrinsically linked to leadership; on the other are (Machiavellian) views that deny any such link-intrinsic or extrinsic. Leadership appears to require a normative component of virtue; otherwise 'leadership' amounts to no more than mere power or influence. But are such accounts coherent and justifiable? Approaching a controversial topic, this series of essays tackles key questions from a range of philosophical perspectives, considering the nature of leadership separate from any formal office or role and how it shapes the world we live in.

Leadership PQ by Gerry Reffo; Valerie WarkIQ and EQ (Emotional Intelligence) are not enough. Creating profit, growth and a better future for society is the new leadership challenge. In a shared power world, no single organization is in control or can deliver alone. Leadership PQ is for leaders working with multiple stakeholders to achieve more together. Shortlisted for the CMI Management Book of the Year 2014/15, Leadership PQ introduces a new leadership requirement, PQ (political intelligence) that will allow governments and businesses to build relationships and work together in a new and more effective way. Successful leaders have built the capability to interact strategically in a world where government and business share power to shape the future. Leadership PQ explains why political intelligence is now a critical leadership requirement, presents exclusive case studies and interview material to demonstrate the impact of PQ in action, and provides practical advice to on how to develop it by effectively navigating the Golden Triangle of business, government and society. Leadership PQ is targeted at: business leaders at a multinational and local level; leaders involved in public policy and delivery; leaders of non-profit organizations; executive teams; and aspiring leaders in all sections. While each sector features different challenges, PQ can give them greater reach and impact.
