1 How to Compete and Grow: a Sector Guide to Policy - McKinsey Global Institute, James Manyika, Lenny Mendonca, Jaana Remes, Vitaly Klintsov & Jörg Schubert
Auteur : McKinsey Global Institute, James Manyika, Lenny Mendonca, Jaana Remes, Vitaly Klintsov & Jörg Schubert
Genre : Économie
As we emerge slowly from the first global recession since World War II, many governments have taken a more proactive approach to boost growth and competitiveness, and many business leaders support these efforts. Given the fragility of the business and economic climate—and strained public coffers—the responsibility to get policy right is acute.

Experience shows that governments have, at best, a mixed record in this regard. An important reason why public intervention in markets has been hit or miss is that action has tended to be based on academic and policy research that has looked through an economy-wide lens to understand competitiveness—in other words, whether one country is "more competitive" than another. This approach has all too often failed to capture the fact that the conditions that promote competitiveness differ significantly from sector to sector—and so, the

4 A Very Stable Genius - Philip Rucker & Carol Leonnig
Auteur : Philip Rucker & Carol Leonnig
Genre : Science politique
Washington Post national investigative reporter Carol Leonnig and White House bureau chief Philip Rucker, both Pulitzer Prize winners, provide the definitive insider narrative of Donald Trump's unique presidency with shocking new reporting and insight into its implications.

“I alone can fix it.” So went Donald J. Trump’s march to the presidency on July 21, 2016, when he accepted the Republican presidential nomination in Cleveland, promising to restore what he described as a fallen nation. Yet over the subsequent years, as he has undertaken the actual work of the commander in chief, it has been hard to see beyond the daily chaos of scandal, investigation, and constant bluster. It would be all too easy to mistake Trump’s first term for one of pure and uninhibited chaos, but there were patterns to his behavior and that of his associates. The universal value

Auteur : International Food Policy Research Institute
Genre : Santé et bien-être
Une alimentation équilibrée est le socle sur lequel repose le bien-être humain. avant la naissance et pendant la petite enfance, elle favorise une évolution saine du cerveau et un développement plus solide du système immunitaire. Une bonne alimentation sauve les jeunes enfants de la mort et leur fournit les moyens de croître et de développer tout leur potentiel. Au cours de la vie humaine, elle favorise un meilleur apprentissage à l'école ; des mères mieux nourries mettent au monde des enfants mieux nourris, et les adultes ont plus de chances d'être productifs et de gagner des salaires plus élevés. À l'âge mûr, elle prépare le métabolisme à lutter contre les maladies liées aux changements dans le régime alimentaire et l'activité physique. En l’absence de ce socle, la vie et les moyens de subsistance d’un être humain reposent sur des sables mouvants.

Genre : Sciences sociales
Le GHI 2012 s’intéresse tout particulièrement à la manière de garantir la sécurité alimentaire de manière durable dans des situations de stress hydrique, pénurie énergétique et rareté des terres. Les changements démographiques, l’accroissement des revenus et les schémas de consommation qui en découlent, le changement climatique, et, parallèlement, la persistance de la pauvreté ainsi que l’inadéquation des politiques et des institutions, exercent une forte pression sur les ressources naturelles.
Dans ce rapport, l’IFPRI décrit la situation de pénurie de terres, d’eau et d’énergie dans les pays en développement et propose deux visions du système alimentaire mondial – un scénario qui ne serait pas durable dans lequel les tendances actuelles d'exploitation des ressources se poursuivent, et un scénario durable avec une amélioration significative de

7 Strategies and Priorities for African Agriculture - Xinshen Diao
Auteur : Xinshen Diao
Genre : Sciences sociales
In the first decade of the twenty-first century, countries within Sub-Saharan Africa reached milestones that seemed impossible only ten years ago: macroeconomic stability, sustained economic growth, and improved governance. Continuing this pattern of success will require enhancing the region’s agricultural sector, in which a large proportion of poor people make a living. The authors of Strategies and Priorities for African Agriculture: Economywide Perspectives from Country Studies argue that, although the diversity of the region makes generalization difficult, increasing staple-crop production is more likely to reduce poverty than increasing export-crop production. This conclusion is based on case studies of ten low-income African countries that reflect varying levels of resource endowments and development stages. The authors also recommend increased, more efficient public inves

9 Le Prince vert - Anatole Muchnik & Mosab Hassan Yousef
Auteur : Anatole Muchnik & Mosab Hassan Yousef
Genre : Politique étrangère et relations internationales
De 1997 à 2007 Mosab Hassan Yousef était le «Prince vert». C'est sous ce nom de code qu'il renseignait la Sécurité intérieure israélienne, le Shin Bet, tout en militant au sein du Hamas, l'une des organisations palestiniennes les plus radicales. Arrêté au sortir de l'adolescence par l'armée israélienne, il bascule lorsqu'en prison il est confronté à la barbarie dont font preuve les membres du Hamas envers les autres prisonniers palestiniens. À sa libération, mettant constamment sa vie en danger, il devient la pièce maîtresse des services secrets israéliens au sein de l'organisation cofondée par son père, un informateur si précieux que son existence n'est connue que d'une poignée de hauts responsables de l'État hébreu.

The classic study of post-Cold War international relations, more relevant than ever in the post-9/11 world, with a new foreword by Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Since its initial publication, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order has become a classic work of international relations and one of the most influential books ever written about foreign affairs. An insightful and powerful analysis of the forces driving global politics, it is as indispensable to our understanding of American foreign policy today as the day it was published. As former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says in his new foreword to the book, it “has earned a place on the shelf of only about a dozen or so truly enduring works that provide the quintessential insights necessary for a broad understanding of world affairs in our time.”

The seminal work on foreign policy and the art of diplomacy.

15 The Future of the Middle East - Global Policy
Auteur : Global Policy
Genre : Politique et actualité
The Middle East is in chaos and the old order is breaking down. In many countries across the region the Sunni Arabs are revolting, no longer accepting their miserable status in the world today, their lack of freedoms, rights and prosperity. All they see is a relatively if not absolutely weaker West propping up their enemies, Israel, dictators, the Kurds, even now Iran. Desperate for change, growing numbers of people have turned to Islamist movements; but their victories have been consistently subverted and denied. Predictably the result has been a slide into extremism and the rise of radical groups across the region.

What can be done? The West is faced with a choice. One option is to continue on the current path, trying to deal with the extremist phenomenon using the security defence surveillance model. This model has already demonstrably failed, with radical Islam expanding o

16 The Political Economy of Agricultural Policy Reform In India - Regina Birner, Surupa Gupta & Neeru Sharma
Auteur : Regina Birner, Surupa Gupta & Neeru Sharma
Genre : Sciences sociales
Agricultural policy reform is one of the major challenges facing India today. Such reform is required in order to reduce poverty through faster agricultural growth and to promote more sustainable use of natural resources while ensuring food security. Subsidy policies that promote the use of fertilizer and of electricity for groundwater irrigation are in particular need of reform. While subsidies for these two inputs played a crucial role in achieving India’s Green Revolution, they have been criticized during the past decade for benefiting large-scale farmers more than smallholders, placing a fiscal burden on the state, and having negative environmental effects. By analyzing the evolution of these input subsidy policies and examining the political processes involved in efforts to reform them, this study throws new light on the factors that have so far prevented a move toward more pro-po

19 World Order - Henry Kissinger
Auteur : Henry Kissinger
Genre : Science politique
As Henry Kissinger observes in this magisterial book, there has never been a true world order. For most of history, civilizations have defined their own concepts of order, each one envisioning its distinct principles as universally relevant. Now, as international affairs take place on a global basis, these historic concepts of world order are meeting. Every region participates in questions of high policy in every other, often instantaneously - yet there is no consensus among the major actors about the rules and limits guiding this process, or its ultimate destination. The result is mounting tension.

Blending historical insight with prognostication, World Order is a meditation from one of our era's most prominent diplomats on the 21st century's ultimate challenge: how to build a shared international order in a world of divergent historic perspectives, violent conflict

20 Good Strategy Bad Strategy - Richard Rumelt
Auteur : Richard Rumelt
Genre : Management et direction
Good Strategy/Bad Strategy clarifies the muddled thinking underlying too many strategies and provides a clear way to create and implement a powerful action-oriented strategy for the real world.
 
Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader. A good strategy is a specific and coherent response to—and approach for—overcoming the obstacles to progress. A good strategy works by harnessing and applying power where it will have the greatest effect. Yet, Rumelt shows that there has been a growing and unfortunate tendency to equate Mom-and-apple-pie values, fluffy packages of buzzwords, motivational slogans, and financial goals with “strategy.”

In Good Strategy/Bad Strategy, he debunks these elements of “bad strategy” and awakens an understanding of the power of a “good strategy.” He introduces n

Il est difficile de risquer aujourd’hui quelque conjecture sur le développement des relations turco-arméniennes.

West Africa’s population is expected to grow at least through mid-century. The region will also see income growth. Both will put increased pressure on the natural resources needed to produce food, and climate change makes the challenges greater. West Africa is already experiencing rising temperatures, shifting precipitation patterns, and increasing extreme events. Without attention to adaptation, the poo

Genre : Économie
Several Sub-Saharan African nations have experienced increased economic growth and political stability in recent years compared with the stagnation and turmoil of previous decades. Ghana is one of the biggest success stories of the region; the nation has enjoyed an annual average of five percent economic growth for the past 20 years and will probably be the first Sub-Saharan African country to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of cutting poverty in half by 2015.

But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering.

Auteur : Alejandro Nin-Pratt, Michael Johnson, Eduardo Magalhaes, Liangzhi You, Xinshen Diao & Jordan Chamberlin
Genre : Sciences sociales
The authors identify a set of development priorities for agriculture that cut across West Africa at both the country and regional levels to achieve economy-wide growth goals in the region. To do this we adopt a modeling and analytical framework that involves the integration of spatial analysis to identify yield gaps determining the growth potential of different agricultural activities for areas with similar conditions and an economy-wide multi-market model to simulate ex ante the economic effects of closing these yield gaps. Results indicate that the greatest agriculture-led growth opportunities in West Africa reside in staple crops (cereals and roots and tubers) and livestock production. Contributing the most to agricultural growth in the Sahel are livestock, rice, coarse grains, and oilseeds (groundnuts); in Coastal countries, staple crops such as cassava, yams, and cereal seems to be

42 Macroeconomics, Agriculture, and Food Security - Eugenio Díaz-Bonilla
Auteur : Eugenio Díaz-Bonilla
Genre : Économie
Why write a book on macroeconomic policies and their links to agriculture and food security in developing countries? The food price spikes of the years just prior to 2010 and the economic, political, and social dislocations they generated refocused the attention of policymakers and development practitioners on the agricultural sector and food security concerns. But even without those traumatic events, the importance of agriculture for developing countries—and for an adequate functioning of the world economy— cannot be denied. First, although declining over time, primary agriculture still represents important percentages of developing countries’ overall domestic production, exports, and employment. If agroindustrial, transportation, commercial, and other related activities are also counted, then the economic and social importance of agriculture-based sectors increases significantly.

Bestselling author and eminent foreign policy scholar Zbigniew Brzezinski's classic book on American's strategic mission in the modern world
In The Grand Chessboard, renowned geostrategist Zbigniew Brzezinski delivers a brutally honest and provocative vision for American preeminence in the twenty-first century. The task facing the United States, he argues, is to become the sole political arbiter in Eurasian lands and to prevent the emergence of any rival power threatening our material and diplomatic interests. The Eurasian landmass, home to the greatest part of the globe's population, natural resources, and economic activity, is the "grand chessboard" on which America's supremacy will be ratified and challenged in the years to come. In this landmark work of public policy and political science, Brzezinski outlines a groundbreaking and powerful blueprint for America's vi

In Obama’s Wars, Bob Woodward provides the most intimate and sweeping portrait yet of the young president as commander in chief.

46 Development as Freedom - Amartya Sen
Auteur : Amartya Sen
Genre : Économie
By the winner of the 1988 Nobel Prize in Economics, an essential and paradigm-altering framework for understanding economic development--for both rich and poor--in the twenty-first century. 

Freedom, Sen argues, is both the end and most efficient means of sustaining economic life and the key to securing the general welfare of the world's entire population. Releasing the idea of individual freedom from association with any particular historical, intellectual, political, or religious tradition, Sen clearly demonstrates its current applicability and possibilities. In the new global economy, where, despite unprecedented increases in overall opulence, the contemporary world denies elementary freedoms to vast numbers--perhaps even the majority of people--he concludes, it is still possible to practically and optimistically restain a sense of social accountability. Develo

Shattered

Auteur : Jonathan Allen & Amie Parnes
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

It was never supposed to be this close. And of course she was supposed to win. How Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump is the riveting story of a sure thing gone off the rails. For every Comey revelation or hindsight acknowledgment about the electorate, no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Hillary's campaign--the candidate herself.

Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, political writers Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, the well-intentioned misfires and the hidden thorns that turned a winnable contest into a devastating loss. Drawing on the authors' deep knowledge of Hillary from their previous book, the acclaimed biography HRC, Shattered offers an o

48 La Voix du Raid - Bernard Cazeneuve, Tatiana Brillant & Christine Desmoulins
Auteur : Bernard Cazeneuve, Tatiana Brillant & Christine Desmoulins
Genre : Criminologie
" Sa mascotte est la panthère, sa devise tient en trois mots : " Servir sans faillir ". Tatiana n'y a jamais dérogé. Elle s'est imposée en prouvant que la négociation n'est pas une question de genre mais avant tout une affaire de spécialistes. C'est la crédibilité de l'interlocuteur ou de l'interlocutrice qui compte. Aussi, il est important d'avoir une diversité de profils, et à ce titre elle a fait la démonstration qu'il serait hautement fautif de prétendre pouvoir se passer des femmes. C'est ainsi qu'elle a été amenée à traiter des situations très délicates, avec des terroristes et des personnes radicalisées, de l'Afghanistan à la Côte d'Ivoire, du Bataclan à Magnanville. "

If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman.

Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It exposes the gender data gap – a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual
