Africa’s Lions: Growth Traps and Opportunities for Six African Economies by Haroon Bhorat

Examining the economic forces that will shape Africa’s future.Africa’s Lions examines the economic growth experiences of six fast growing and/or economically dominant African countries. Expert African researchers offer unique perspectives into the challenges and issues in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and South Africa.Despite a growing body of research on African economies, very little has focused on the relationship between economic growth and employment outcomes at the detailed country level. A lack of empirical data has deprived policymakers of a robust evidence base on which to make informed decisions. By harnessing country-level household, firm, and national accounts data together with existing analytical country research—the authors have attempted to bridge this gap.The growth of the global working-age population to 2030 will be driven primarily by Africa, which means that the relationship between growth and employment should be understood within the context of each country’s projected demographic challenge and the associated implications for employment growth. A better understanding of the structure of each country’s workforce and the resulting implications for human capital development, the vulnerably employed, and the working poor, will be critical to informing the development policy agenda.As a group, the six countries profiled in Africa’s Lions will largely shape the continent’s future. Each country chapter focuses on the complex interactions between economic growth and employment outcomes, within the individual Africa’s Lions context.

Surviving Insulin: Short essays during my first year on Insulin by Rachel Zinman

In this book Yoga teacher and Type 1 Diabetic Rachel Zinman shares short essays on her feelings and thoughts about yoga and diabetes during her first year on insulin. She never realized how much insulin would change her life and how much yoga has continued to be a lifeline as she navigates the rollercoaster of this disease.

At diagnosis she was in such a state that she refused to believe that the cause of her diabetes was autoimmune. She kept insisting it was type 2 or some mistake. She searched for answers in alternative healing modalities and although she had some success she always ended up back at square one with higher blood sugars, feeling like a failure.

The day she started Insulin was the day her life changed for the better. She found herself reaching out, finding out more about what it means to have type 1 and recognising that there were people just like her not only surviving but thriving.

Her aim in sharing these essays is to offer inspirational bytes to take the edge off it all. Having found comfort in reading other people’s stories, seeing how people get through their day, balancing their busy lives while managing their levels she feels so inspired and truly hopes that by reading these essays during her first year of insulin you will too.

How the new business models in the digital age have evolved by Javier Celaya

This second edition of New Business Models in the Digital Age is full of updated, need-to-know information for anyone interested in this topic. Due to the outstanding reception the original report had in 2014, having been downloaded over 5,000 times, and because of all of the available new data and important developments, it was necessary to expand the report after just a year to include all of the changes that have taken place since then. Some of the biggest news in this year’s edition comes from the world of micropayments, namely the new and hotly debated “pay what you read” business model. The newest changes in subscription models, which are having a hard time taking hold in the book sector, are also discussed as is the surge in the number of new crowdfunding projects that have led to the consolidation of this business trend in the last year alone.

Fire, Aim…Ready: Management: The Start at the End Approach to Crushing Competition, Crafting Culture, and Cementing Relationships by Eliot Wagonheim

Over the course of my legal career, I have started companies, served as COO for a hugely successful software company, and started, managed, and run law firms. For 27 years, I have guided companies of every size and description — from Mom ‘n Pops to some of the most successful and recognized brands in the world. I have negotiated billions of dollars’ worth of contracts and I have helped clients buy and sell huge companies, as well as small, family-run concerns. I have negotiated countless employment agreements, strategic alliances, partnerships, and buy-outs.

In all of that time, and in all of those transactions, I have never found a better secret to success in business than the approach I have developed and taught as “Fire, Aim…Ready” or FAR. That’s the secret I share with you here.

Fire, Aim…Ready: Management shows you how to employ this strategy throughout every facet of your organization, from recruiting and onboarding to outstanding business development, marketing, and sales.

A FAR-sighted organization excels where its peers simply imitate each other. Using the Fire, Aim…Ready approach, management teams and owners can work more efficiently, more collaboratively, and more profitably. Written by an entrepreneurial lawyer in plain English, the lessons can be understood in the space of an evening, but will resonate for a lifetime.
