Beyond Agriculture
Rural America has always played a vital role in our country?s economic strength. But today, as we continue to enjoy our longest economic expansion ever, we must acknowledge that not all of rural America has been able to take part in this unprecedented run of prosperity. It is becoming increasingly clear that many Main Streets across rural America must reset their sights. To prosper in the future, they must acquire new skills, new strengths, and new connections with an emerging digital economy."Beyond Agriculture: New Policies for Rural America" explores the challenges facing the rural economy and highlights the economic development issues that are becoming so crucial to the future of rural America.

Exodus: How Migration Is Changing Our World
It is one of the most pressing and controversial questions of our time -- vehemently debated, steeped in ideology, profoundly divisive. Who should be allowed to immigrate and who not? What are the arguments for and against limiting the numbers? We are supposedly a nation of immigrants, and yet our policies reflect deep anxieties and the quirks of short-term self-interest, with effective legislation snagging on thousand-mile-long security fences and the question of how long and arduous the path to citizenship should be. In Exodus, Paul Collier, the world-renowned economist and bestselling author of The Bottom Billion, clearly and concisely lays out the effects of encouraging or restricting migration. Drawing on original research and case studies, he explores this volatile issue from three perspectives: that of the migrants themselves, that of the people they leave behind, and that of the host societies where they relocate. Immigration is a simple economic equation, but its effects are complex. Exodus confirms how crucial it will be that public policy face and address all of its ramifications. Sharply written and brilliantly clarifying, Exodus offers a provocative analysis of an issue that affects us all.

Environmental Policy for Business: A Manager's Guide to Smart Regulation
In the context of the worldwide concern with the sustainability of current forms of development, business managers are being required to engage with environmental policy more creatively than in the past. At the broadest level, business managers are being advised to embrace regulation as a source of competitive advantage rather than viewing it simply as a compliance cost and administrative burden. Irrespective of whether managers accept that going beyond compliance is a stimulus for innovation, business managers frequently face a policy environment in which choices need to be made over how policy agendas should be responded to.

Contemporary policy approaches may mandate demonstration of best practice, without defining what constitutes best practice or use policy approaches that give the option of paying for pollution or investing in clean technology. Frequently, the argument is made that there are reputational gains to being a first mover and putting the organization ahead of regulation, but the implication can be considerable upfront investment for uncertain returns. Against this context, this book provides a guide to the new world of environmental regulation for managers within business and students with a particular interest in understanding how environmental regulation works.

Feasibility Analysis for Sustainable Technologies: An Engineering-Economic Perspective
Feasibility Analysis for Sustainable Technologies will lead you into a professional feasibility analysis for a renewable energy or energy efficiency project. The analysis begins with an understanding of the basic engineering description of technology in terms of capacity, efficiency, constraints, and dependability.Sustainability is a hot topic now, attracting students to courses offered across a variety of academic departments, including business, environmental science, engineering, and city planning. A key aspect of implementing sustainability in organizations is the design and financial evaluation of systems for renewable energy, energy efficiency, and waste management. Most sustainability programs at the masters level have some expectation that the graduate will be able to do a feasibility study for such systems. However, no textbook exists to train the student to do a feasibility study--until now.

When my university decided in 2010 to make Sustainable Business the flagship specialization of our MBA program, I realized that we needed to have a course called 'Sustainable Technologies, ' which would prepare students to conduct feasibility analyses. This course would take an 'engineering-economic' approach to the subject, teaching basic engineering concepts as appropriate for business students and using low-intermediate concepts in economics and finance that would still be accessible to students (both undergraduate and graduate) who do not have a background in science or economics. Teaching the course over the past few years, I also saw that this engineering-economic knowledge of sustainable technology also has value for students who want to manage sustainability initiatives or participate informatively in policy discussions on sustainable technology. Thus, the book should be able to sell into any masters-level program that emphasizes sustainability, and it will be a valuable resource for sustainability professionals who need to teach themselves how to do a feasibility study.

There is a Students' Study Guide containing chapter summaries, homework problems, and cases, and there is a Teacher's Solution Manual for instructors once this title has been adopted.

Personal and Organizational Transformation Towards Sustainability: Walking a Twin-Path
Inspired by the WBCSD Vision 2050 in which all people live well within the limits of the planet, this book asks how do we achieve this bold ambition? Telling a story of personal growth and corporate transformation, it provides insights and tools for anyone driving sustainable development within their organizations and in their own lives.

Discover how you can consciously use your professional role as a source of change. Learn how the consistent use of few, yet meaningful visuals, enables generative dialogue and communication for aligned problem solving within multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder teams. See how personal mastery can guide you in identifying the contribution you can make, both towards wider goals and your individual well-being.

On this journey, meaning-making is essential. In organizations, co-creation of a shared language and an understanding of disruptive innovation are fundamental to successful transformation.

In exploring these topics, the book builds on a set of core concepts: Rogers' innovation diffusion curve, the triple bottom line (people, profit, planet) expanded with a fourth P (the individual), and the WWF ice-breaker graph which maps the environmental footprint against the human development index.

Tribal Development of Energy Resources and the Creation of Energy Jobs on Indian Lands
With 56 million acres of Indian lands in the lower 48 States, and 44 million acres of Native corporate land in my State of Alaska, Native Americans have an enormous potential to contribute to the energy and security of this country. Tribal lands are estimated to contain 10 percent of the Nation's conventional and renewable energy resources. This is likely an understatement because Federal geologists are typically very conservative in their assessment of energy resources. Over 15 million acres of Indian lands with energy resources have not been developed. For instance, the Crow Nation has an estimated 3 percent of the United States coal resources, exceeding 9 billion recoverable tons. As gas prices continue to soar and unemployment ranks high throughout Indian Country, we should continue to encourage and empower tribes to responsibly develop their energy resources.

Working Ethically in Finance: Clarifying Our Vocation
.. . a must read for those wanting to craft a vocation in finance. -- Adrian Gore, CEO, Discovery Group; .. . no better book for a student or practitioner who wants morethan is usually on offer in finance courses in our universities. -- Paul Oslington, Professor of Economics and Dean of Business, Alphacrucis College, Sydney. To develop a vocation we ask: what do I want to be remembered for? This involves aspiring to personal integrity and a life well lived. Those working in the financial sector fulfill vocations by finding ways to serve social purposes, to allocate resources efficiently and to provide financial security-while remembering the needy. This means contributing to institutions, where people can flourish personally and create appropriate products and services. The ethics of those working on finding their vocation do not flow from rules and obligations, but from a personal commitment to seeking what is good. This life is based on the fundamental personal virtue, integrity. This book is written for those who aspire to the cultivation of the personal virtues of wisdom, self-control, courage, and justice.
