This book provides a comprehensive investigation of the messy and crisis-ridden relationship between the operations of capitalist finance, global capital flows, and state power in emerging markets. The politics, drivers of emergence, and diversity of these myriad forms of state power are explored in light of the positionality of emerging markets within the network of space and power relations that characterises contemporary global finance. The book develops a multi-disciplinary perspective and combines insights from Marxist political economy, post-Keynesian economics, economic geography, and postcolonial and feminist International Political Economy. Alami comprehensively reviews the theories, histories, and geographies of cross-border finance management, and develops a conceptual framework which allows unpacking the complex entanglement of constraint and opportunities, of growing integration and tight discipline, that cross-border finance represents for emerging markets. Extensive fieldwork research provides an in-depth comparative critical interrogation of the policies and regulations deployed in Brazil and South Africa. This volume will be especially useful to those researching and working in the areas of international political economy, contemporary geographies of money and finance, and critical development studies. It should also prove of interest to policy makers, practitioners, and activists concerned with the relation between finance and development in emerging markets and beyond.

In the 20th century, we built our daily existence around the production and consumption of fossil fuels. Our use of oil has given us more jobs, leisure time, cheaper goods, and affordable travel – just to name a few benefits. Oil has made our lives richer and more efficient. But it came at a cost. The latest catastrophe? COVID-19. Jean Missinhoun is a hedge fund investor based in London who focuses on oil and energy investments. Up until the COVID-19 crisis, Missinhoun focused on dealings with Brent crude oil, as well as options and futures. But as the pandemic continued to expand, he realized the world has two choices: continue down the destructive path of fossil fuels or make the transition to green energy. Our exploration of renewable energy has the same potential to be just as fruitful as oil was a century ago, if not more so. And with the help of artificial intelligence, who knows what new materials or inventions we’ll make next as we embark on the 21st century. The trillion dollar question is: who will be the next Rockefeller?

Banks and bankers are hardly the most beloved institutions and people in this country. With its corruptive influence on politics and stranglehold on the American economy, Wall Street is held in high regard by few outside the financial sector. But the pitchforks raised against this behemoth are largely rhetorical: we rarely see riots in the streets or public demands for an equitable and democratic banking system that result in serious national changes. Yet the situation was vastly different a century ago, as Christopher W. Shaw shows. This book upends the conventional thinking that financial policy in the early twentieth century was set primarily by the needs and demands of bankers. Shaw shows that banking and politics were directly shaped by the literal and symbolic investments of the grassroots. This engagement remade financial institutions and the national economy, through populist pressure and the establishment of federal regulatory programs and agencies like the Farm Credit System and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Shaw reveals the surprising groundswell behind seemingly arcane legislation, as well as the power of the people to demand serious political repercussions for the banks that caused the Great Depression. One result of this sustained interest and pressure was legislation and regulation that brought on a long period of relative financial stability, with a reduced frequency of economic booms and busts. Ironically, this stability led to the decline of the very banking politics that brought it about. Giving voice to a broad swath of American figures, including workers, farmers, politicians, and bankers alike, Money, Power, and the People recasts our understanding of what might be possible in balancing the needs of the people with those of their financial institutions.

The transformation of the eastern provinces of the Roman empire from the middle of the seventh century CE under the impact of Islam has attracted a good deal of scholarly attention in recent years, and as more archaeological material becomes available, has been subject to revision and rethinking in ways that radically affect what we know or understand about the area, about state-building and the economy and society of the early Islamic world, and about issues such as urbanisation, town-country relations, the ways in which a different religious culture impacted on the built environment, and about politics. This volume represents the fruits of a workshop held at Princeton University in May 2007 to discuss the ways in which recent work has affected our understanding of the nature of economic and exchange activity in particular, and the broader implications of these advances for the history of the region.

A young man from nowhere suddenly appears in the capital of the world. A forgotten boy. Still, like everyone else in this world, he desired sex, fame, money, power, and drugs. The little boy had observed the world through a tiny little black monitor shaped perfectly for his hands. Just like a good book would feel. For 22 years he watched while his body was completely still. He sees the opportunity to stand up and finally steps into the world he's been carefully analyzing. He arrives but still looking like an innocent boy in everyone's eyes. Just beginning to know the depth of life. Just starting to understand these inner and outer body experiences in this so called "real world" we all worry our children about. He was barely becoming an independent adult. ""Accept good things from wherever it comes. Don't have a mini mind. So many masters have left us with trillions of treasurable teachings throughout human history. All this wisdom, belongs to the world.""

The themes of money, power, fame, and love are universal in humanity, regardless of race, or religion, or class. Whether we examine the lives of the rich or the poor, the powerful or the ordinary, the famous or the unknown, these topics crop up again and again. What's more, most ordinary people believed that the rich, famous, and powerful lived easier lives. History tells us, however, that this is not frequently the case. In Money, Power, and Fame in Astrology, author Au Yong Chee Tuck considers this notion by examining the birth charts of several well-known people using the elements of Chinese astrology and relating them to the events of their lives. Au Yong presented the lives and charts of figures as diverse as musician Xavier Cugat, actress Shirley MacLaine, and politician Adolf Hitler. His collection offered a detailed survey of the struggles and achievements in their lives and how astrology aided or hindered them along with astrological charts for each person.

The Education of an Anti-Imperialist

Robert M. La Follette (1855–1925), the Republican senator from Wisconsin, is best known as a key architect of American Progressivism and as a fiery advocate for liberal politics in the domestic sphere. But "Fighting Bob" did not immediately come to a progressive stance on foreign affairs. In The Education of an Anti-Imperialist, Richard Drake follows La Follette's growth as a critic of America's wars and the policies that led to them. He began his political career with conventional Republican views of the era on foreign policy, avidly supporting the Spanish-American and Philippine-American Wars. La Follette's critique of empire emerged in 1910, during the first year of the Mexican Revolution, as he began to perceive a Washington–Wall Street alliance in the United States' dealings with Mexico. La Follette subsequently became Congress's foremost critic of Woodrow Wilson, fiercely opposing United States involvement in World War I. Denounced in the American press as the most dangerous man in the country, he became hated and vilified by many but beloved and admired by others. La Follette believed that financial imperialism and its necessary instrument, militarism, caused modern wars. He contended they were twin evils that would have ruinous consequences for the United States and its citizens in the twentieth century and beyond. “An excellent book. . . . As Drake fully documents, La Follette's warnings about [World War I] profiteers and the lust for power were fully justified. Then as now, the American people were lied to by the government and media and manipulated into the stink and blood of war."—Mark Taylor, The Daily Call “Scholars will . . . value the insights into La Follette's foreign policy education.”—The Historian
