            Sabotage: The Business of Finance

            'I don't like the word sabotage ,' - a former Goldman Sachs trader admitted. 'It's just harsh...Though, frankly, how else do you make money in this business... I mean, real money...' Financial malpractice, we're told, is an aberration: the actions of a few bad apples deviating fr...om the norms of a market-governed process and gaming the system. In Sabotage, political scientists Anastasia Nesvetailova and Ronen Palan blow this fiction apart, showing that sabotage is not an anomaly, but part of the business model of finance - and always has been. Abusive lending practices, misleading investors, manipulating prices, deliberately falsifying figures, cheating, obstruction and taking advantage of 'the dumbest person in the room' - they're actually the main source of profitability in finance, and the surest way to a bonus. If you want to make money in the industry, you need to find ways of sabotaging either your clients, your competitors or the government (or all three), and above all, the market itself. Talking to industry insiders, economists and high net worth customers, examining the history of finance and its workings today, the authors show us how the idea of sabotage not only makes sense of all past economic crises, but must also be at the heart of all future regulations.

            Today Google and Facebook receive 90% of the world's news ad-spending. Amazon takes half of all ecommerce in the US. Google and Apple operating systems run on all but 1% of cell phones globally. And 80% of corporate wealth is now held by 10% of companies - not the GEs and Toyotas... of this world, but the digital titans. How did we get here? How did the tech industry get to dominate our world so completely? How did once-idealistic and innovative companies come to manipulate elections, violate our privacy, and pose a threat to the fabric of our democracy? In Don't Be Evil, Financial Times global business columnist Rana Foroohar documents how Big Tech lost its soul - and became the new Wall Street. Through her skilled reporting and unparalleled access - won through nearly 30 years covering business and technology - she shows the true extent to which the 'Faang's (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) crush or absorb any potential competitors, hijack our personal data and mental space and offshore their exorbitant profits. What's more, she reveals how these threats to our democracies, our livelihoods and our minds are all intertwined. Yet Foroohar also lays out a plan for how we can resist, creating a framework that fosters innovation while also protecting us from the dark side of digital technology.

Chances are you've already heard these tips intended to help control your digital addiction. But they aren't enough. In Digital Minimalism, computer science professor Cal Newport provides a radical new solution to help us embrace and not be enslaved by technology: a 30 day digital detox. Newport explains how to use this offline period to evaluate what we want to use the Internet for so that when we come back online, we spend our time wisely on a small number of carefully crafted activities that connect us to things and people we truly value. With easily implementable tips and practices like replacing web surfing with reading rituals, scheduling when we use digital tools (not when we take breaks from them), never leaving or reading comments on social media, and focusing on creation not consumption, you'll learn how to use and integrate technology into a life well-lived. Read Digital Minimalism and you'll never again sacrifice your productivity to clickbait, or lose 40 minutes of your evening to Instagram.
