DuPont: From the Banks of the Brandywine to Miracles of Science
DuPont: From the Banks of the Brandywine to
In 1802 E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company sprouted, like an acorn, close to the young oak of American life. In the early years DuPont explosives helped the new nation build canals and railroads, ports and harbors, and dams and mines. DuPont munitions also served national needs during time of war.The company's diversification into plastics, dyes, and synthetic materials after 1900 matched new technologies to the needs of a complex, maturing society. DuPont's pioneering research yielded a host of new products like neoprene and nylon, and its service in the Manhattan Project in World War II helped bring that prolonged conflict to a decisive end. The post-war years brought sharp competition and high-stakes global challenges. DuPont restructured its business and research efforts, mining science for useful discoveries in diverse fields like energy, health, electronics, specialty fibers, and biotechnology. Its international impact, reputation, and market reach grew as well. And when science helped galvanize the environmental movement, DuPont led industries worldwide to a renewed sense of stewardship for the earth's resources.Today DuPont operates in more than 70 countries throughout the world, and its vision and impact are global. But it has held to a core of enduring values, a deep ...

Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains (Digital Media and Society)
Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains (Digital Media and
From their shadowy origins in Bitcoin to their use by multinational corporations, cryptocurrencies and blockchains are remaking the rules of digital media and society. Meanwhile, regulators, governments, and the public are trying to make sense of it all. In this accessible book, Quinn DuPont guides readers through the changing face of money to show how blockchain technology underpins new forms of value exchange and social coordination. He introduces cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to readers in terms of their developers and users, investment opportunities and risks, changes to politics and law, social and industrial applications - and what this all means for the new economy. The author argues throughout that, rather than being a technical innovation, cryptocurrencies and blockchains are social technologies enabling developers and users to engage in unprecedented experiments with social and political levers. Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains dispenses with hype and offers sober reflection on this crucial and timely topic. It is essential reading for students and scholars of culture, politics, media, and the economy, as well as anyone who wants to understand, take part in, or change the future of work and society.

The Potemkin Dragon: China, A Danger to Itself and the World
The Potemkin Dragon: China, A Danger to Itself
Tall Skyscrapers headquartering some of the world’s largest (Chinese) companies crowd across Shanghai’s Pudong skyline symbolising the arrival of capitalism in China. Yet all is far from what it seems.This book argues that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is running what amounts to a sham or Potemkin market. The CCP has established all the formal institutions, structures and systems of a market economy. But behind the scenes the CCP sits at the centre of its own web of control. Through the State-owned Assets and Supervision Administration Commission (SASAC), the Central Organisation Department (COD), powerful Party Committees in every major business and through control of almost the entire banking system, the CCP Party-State has the levers to direct every business, state-owned or private that matters.Western governments have fallen for this Potemkin market believing it to be a real market. As a result, the West has allowed China to get away with restricting access to its own markets, dumping products abroad and hurting Western businesses, while at the same time demanding maximum access to Western markets. The author lays out the measures the West needs to take to defend itself, while also arguing that the Potemkin market is a threat to China’s future. Dr. Alan Riley is a S...

The Value of Everything: Making and Taking in the Global Economy
The Value of Everything: Making and Taking in
Modern economies reward activities that extract value rather than create it. This must change to ensure a capitalism that works for us all.Shortlisted for the FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year AwardA scathing indictment of our current global financial system, The Value of Everything rigorously scrutinizes the way in which economic value has been accounted and reveals how economic theory has failed to clearly delineate the difference between value creation and value extraction. Mariana Mazzucato argues that the increasingly blurry distinction between the two categories has allowed certain actors in the economy to portray themselves as value creators, while in reality they are just moving around existing value or, even worse, destroying it. The book uses case studies-from Silicon Valley to the financial sector to big pharma-to show how the foggy notions of value create confusion between rents and profits, reward extractors and creators, and distort the measurements of growth and GDP. In the process, innovation suffers and inequality rises. The lesson here is urgent and sobering: to rescue our economy from the next inevitable crisis and to foster long-term economic growth, we will need to rethink capitalism, rethink the role of public policy and the importance of the public se...

Dupont Circle (DC) (Images of America)
Dupont Circle (DC) (Images of
From the vast estates of the mid-1800s to the rowhouses built at the end of the 19th century, from Charles Lindbergh’s balcony address at the Patterson House to the various political rallies staged in the urban neighborhood, Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle has for many years been at the center of a rich history. Boasting a fascinating heritage of architectural, cultural, and political activity and diversity, the Dupont Circle neighborhood has played a part in the great story of the capital city and has witnessed many of the people and events that have challenged our national community. Following the area’s use as a Civil War encampment, Dupont Circle slowly began to develop a more urban character. At the neighborhood’s social zenith in the early 1900s, gracious mansions surrounding the circle hosted lavish parties attended by diplomats, presidents, and wealthy socialites. The photographs in this informative visual history capture the elegant homes that were later replaced by office buildings and the fashionable era that was soon to fade. Rare World War II images of former mansions used as rooming houses bring readersinto the 20th century, along with the early 1960s photographs of gay activists who gathered at the circle and began the modern restoration of the neighborhoo...

Bitcoin and Beyond: Cryptocurrencies, Blockchains, and Global Governance (RIPE Series in Global Political Economy)
Bitcoin and Beyond: Cryptocurrencies, Blockchains, and Global Governance
Since the launch of Bitcoin in 2009 several hundred different ‘cryptocurrencies’ have been developed and become accepted for a wide variety of transactions in leading online commercial marketplaces and the ‘sharing economy’, as well as by more traditional retailers, manufacturers, and even by charities and political parties. Bitcoin and its competitors have also garnered attention for their wildly fluctuating values as well as implication in international money laundering, Ponzi schemes and online trade in illicit goods and services across borders. These and other controversies surrounding cryptocurrencies have induced varying governance responses by central banks, government ministries, international organizations, and industry regulators worldwide. Besides formal attempts to ban Bitcoin, there have been multifaceted efforts to incorporate elements of blockchains, the peer-to-peer technology underlying cryptocurrencies, in the wider exchange, recording, and broadcasting of digital transactions. Blockchains are being mobilized to support and extend an array of governance activities. The novelty and breadth of growing blockchain-based activities have fuelled both utopian promises and dystopian fears regarding applications of the emergent technology to Bitcoin and beyond. T...
