Release Date: 2016-02-01
Genre: Foreign Language Study

After the highly successful launch of this popular, college-level intermediate French program, the Second Edition of Réseau: Communication, Intégration, Intersections expands upon the features that have made it so popular in two- and four-year colleges and universities around the world. Reseau conceives of the teaching of French as a holistic endeavor, not only in terms of language skills—speaking, listening, reading, and writing—but also in terms of cultural knowledge in the broadest sense. Based on the belief that knowledge of a second language and culture necessarily brings about a greater understanding not only of the world in an increasingly global context, but also of the individual self, the content and activities in Reseau offer students the opportunity to reflect on the differences between their own and French and Francophone cultures and experiment with the new identities that so many researchers suggest language learning can encourage.

The Nature of Value

Author: Nick Gogerty
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 9780231535212
Release Date: 2014-07-15
Genre: Business & Economics

The Nature of Value presents a theory of how economic value functions and how it drives growth, starting with tiny sparks of innovation and scaling all the way up to the full scope of the economy. Nick Gogerty's exploration of value borrows from a wide array of disciplines, including anthropology, psychology, physics, sociology, and ethics, but most of all, it examines how evolution's processes can help investors understand the economy and how investors can use this new understanding to improve their allocation decisions. Starting with a look at how innovations can help firms succeed, Gogerty looks at the economic niches in which firms compete and explores how firms can create defensive "moats" to enhance their chances of survival. He shows allocators how to adjust their actions for best performance and returns and what to look for when assessing company management, supporting his arguments with extensive data and years of practitioner experience from scientific, social, and economic disciplines. Intuitive illustrations are used to illuminate central concepts and ideas. Gogerty's practical takeaways, couched in vivid explanations, will help investors of all backgrounds gain fresh insight into market mechanics.
