Der hartnäckige Pionier der solaren Mobilität sieht sich seit der ersten Stunde mit Widerständen konfrontiert, die der konsequenten Nutzung der Solarenergie im Wege stehen. Die offiziellen Statements der Politik, das fossile und atomare Zeitalter zu beenden und in das der Erneuerbaren Energien überführen zu wollen, sieht er in der Realität stark behindert. Die Marktwirtschaft, gedankenloses Mitläufertum sowie die Neigung, Problemlösungen in die Zukunft zu verschieben, sind die eigentlichen Antagonisten. Dabei wird die Macht der Energie-Konzerne über die Politik und den sich nur oberflächlich interessierenden und manipulierbaren Bürger offensichtlich. Der Leser erhält eine andere Perspektive über die zeitlichen Abläufe auf unserem Planeten. Das absehbare Ende der „fossilen“ Episode und die unvermeidliche dauerhafte Hinwendung zur Sonne wird daraus erkennbar. Parallelen zu geschichtlichen Ereignissen werden gezogen und gezeigt: Mainstreams können auch ihr abruptes Ende finden. Der Autor bedient sich lustvoll aus seinem Arsenal an Werkzeugen: Nüchterne Sachlichkeit bei den Fakten, feine und auch bittere Ironie bei Skurrilem, trockener Humor wenn's gar nicht anders geht, Florett beim offenen Streit und gezielt geworfene Handgranaten auf die Bastionen geistig Kasernierter. Also eine kurzweilige Auseinandersetzung mit dem drängendsten Problem unseres Planeten. Die Lektorin hat noch eine andere Perspektive zu diesem Buch: „... wie die Sonne die ganze Welt mit Licht und Energie bescheint, hast Du die wesentlichen Themen des Lebens bestrahlt und mit Sachverstand und menschlicher Wärme in erhellenden Zusammenhang gebracht!“

What makes a winner? Why do some succeed both in life and in business, and others fail? And why do a few individuals end up supremely powerful, while many remain powerless? Are men more likely to be power junkies than women? The 'winner effect' is a term used in biology to describe how an animal that has won a few fights against weak opponents is much more likely to win later bouts against stronger contenders. As Ian Robertson reveals, it applies to humans, too. Success changes the chemistry of the brain, making you more focused, smarter, more confident and more aggressive. The effect is as strong as any drug. And the more you win, the more you will go on to win. But the downside is that winning can become physically addictive. By understanding what the mental and physical changes are that take place in the brain of a 'winner', how they happen, and why they affect some people more than others, Robertson answers the question of why some people attain and then handle success better than others. He explains what makes a winner - or a loser - and how can we use the answers to these questions to understand better the behaviour of our business colleagues, employees, family and friends.

Few forms of market exchange intrigue economists as do auctions, whose theoretical and practical implications are enormous. John Kagel and Dan Levin, complementing their own distinguished research with papers written with other specialists, provide a new focus on common value auctions and the "winner's curse." In such auctions the value of each item is about the same to all bidders, but different bidders have different information about the underlying value. Virtually all auctions have a common value element; among the burgeoning modern-day examples are those organized by Internet companies such as eBay. Winners end up cursing when they realize that they won because their estimates were overly optimistic, which led them to bid too much and lose money as a result. The authors first unveil a fresh survey of experimental data on the winner's curse. Melding theory with the econometric analysis of field data, they assess the design of government auctions, such as the spectrum rights (air wave) auctions that continue to be conducted around the world. The remaining chapters gauge the impact on sellers' revenue of the type of auction used and of inside information, show how bidders learn to avoid the winner's curse, and present comparisons of sophisticated bidders with college sophomores, the usual guinea pigs used in laboratory experiments. Appendixes refine theoretical arguments and, in some cases, present entirely new data. This book is an invaluable, impeccably up-to-date resource on how auctions work--and how to make them work.

Why does the top one per cent of the population capture such a disproportionate amount of the wealth? Why do top athletes win dozens of sponsorship deals, yet competitors who finish just moments behind struggle to attract a single deal? Why does one product become a runaway success, while others flounder and fail? The answer is the rise of 'winner-take-all' markets, in which small differences in performance lead to huge differences in reward. More relevant today than ever before, this fascinating book shows how in business, as in sport, thousands are competing for only a handful of top prizes. As Robert Frank and Philip J Cook reveal, this relentless emphasis on coming out on top has shaped our society and how we define success in troubling ways, creating growing income inequality and an enormous misallocation of talent, as more and more gifted people seek the big bucks and limelight of lucrative yet non-essential careers while vital professions scramble to attract staff. But there are measures we can take to create a more equitable and more prosperous future, and The Winner-Take-All Society shows the way.
